Two veterans of the Bosnian War, one American, one Serbian, clash in a bleak mountain wilderness.

De Niro is a former American soldier who fought on the front lines in Bosnia, but has now retired to a remote cabin in the woods, trying to escape memories of war.

Travolta, a former Serbian soldier, seeks De Niro out, hoping to settle an old score. A cat- and-mouse game in which They fight their own personal War, with both physical and psychological injuries.

Old wounds are opened, suppressed memories are drawn to the surface and long-hidden overacting and upstaging about both are revealed.....

Alarm bells begin to ring when to arguable Hollywood heavyweights (of the past), end up in the netherworld of straight to Blu Ray hell.

And while the film isn't the most original thing one has seen (if you've seen First Blood, The Osterman Weekend, Surviving The Game, The Hunted, Hard Target, then you've seen the majority of this), it still has De Niro and Travolta 'facing off' against each other, which makes the film even more frustrating when you realise that this film was pitched to co-star Travolta and Nicolas Cage as a follow up to the brilliant Face/Off.

But for the two leads, it's entertaining enough to keep you just about interested for ninety minutes.

De Niro is the loner, spending his days taking dirty pictures of Elk, chopping wood,making pies, and co-incidentally reading Hemingways 'for whom the bell tolls'.

Travolta on the other hand is the reason to watch it, and it's not just his brilliantly bad accent (he sounds like Dr.

I feel I am the only person who likes this film. And I can't quite understand. I have tried to get people I know to watch it, including a loyal DeNiro fan (you know who you are AH) but no interest has been shown. Maybe my review can change that. I hope so because Killing Season is pretty dammn OK in my book. It follows a guy, Bobby DeNiro who committed a war crime of sort in the past and is revisited by the victim, Travolta, years later. The film looks great and is exqisitely shot. The violence, or torture scenes are horrific. So much so you wriggle about and squirm in your seat like you have a trapped fart you can't release.

What is nice to see is JT back in a serious role rather than kid friendly stuff like Old Dogs. Don't get me wrong, that film is alright but not my cup of tea really. I do own a copy, and it makes me smile but JT is far far better in the more adult roles. Not adult as in dirty great tash and calling round to fix the washer while being hung like a donkey, but you know, like he was in Broken Arrow, Face Off and The Taking of Pelham 123. DeNiro is on auto pilot but still looks like he loves working and being in films. His role reminds me of him in the masterpiece which is The Deer Hunter, only years later.

Killing Season is no masterpiece but it is rather enjoyable and stunning to watch. Don't dimiss it because other folks have. Give it ago and you may be surprised.

I just new it. A niggling doubt in the back of my mind. Go on, treat yourself I said to myself. You have earned it. Don't watch a free one I said. £4.50 straight down the drain on this load of rubbish.!!!!

This is a slow movie drama of a cat and mouse game of revenge between a retired American (De Niro), one Serbian (Travolta) solider. Both have a go at being the cat and the mouse. The only line in the movie that summed it up for me was "I torcher you then you torcher me". I am a fan of both of these guys so this movie became more of a disappointment then simply a watchable movie. The movie is at an old snails pace, even in the action scenes it was just watching two old man fight it out. I just felt sorry for them more than anything else.

Screen legends 'John Travolta' and 'Robert De Niro' go
to head in this 'Revenge-driven spectacle'
For 18 years 'Emil Kovac' (Travolta) has been searching for the soldier
that had shot him leaving him for dead during an execution of fellow 'Scorpians'
during the 'Croatia' - 'Serbia' conflict.
'Emil' posing as a tourist befriends 'Benjamin Ford' (De Niro) the latter not at
first understanding what the intentions of 'Emil' were, however it soon turns into a
a cat and mouse hunting trip, both in turn gaining the upper hand, survival becomes
the name of the game.
At times it is a brutal affair as each try's to inflict pain on the other, maybe not everyone's
cup-of-tea perhaps, however for me, I like both actors and enjoyed the movie.
Curiously the film is yet to be released on DVD or Blu-ray in the U.K the movie is
a Region 'A' Import.(IT IS AVAILABLE NOW IN THE U.K)

Killing season is the story of two Bosnian war veterans, Emil Kovac (John Travolta - Face/Off) and Benjamin Ford (Robert Deniro - Killer Elite). Both men are scarred by the experiences, literally and figuratively. Emil tracks Ben down to his remote cabin in the U.S. where he is living out his retirement in solitude, kept busy by photography and the upkeep of his humble abode (cue cliché wood-chopping). But when Emil drops in on the pretence of hunting in the area, the two begin to reminisce about their pasts, it becomes clear that there is a score to settle... who will come out on top?

Killing Season is a well, if predictably, filmed experience. The natural surrounds of the woods, river and soaring Condors give us some exceptionally picturesque vistas. The opening war scene shot through a sepia filter is cheesy even if it is dealing with the pretty harrowing theme of religious genocide. However the plot is pretty stilted and doesn't actually make much sense, with the two guys alternating who has the upper-hand and then losing it repeatedly but never actually finishing each other off despite being given the opportunity on a silver platter.

Travolta's accent is a bit wobbly but at least it's consistent - unlike the number of arrows in his quiver which seems to change at whim. We have time-travelling arrows, released by one actor in bright sunshine, yet hit their target on a grey-overcast day.
