Seeking revenge does not take away the pain of yesterday but only blinds our heart of the beauty each new sunrise allows us.
Verified purchase
Not specifically my type of movie but friend recommended, so I gave it a Saturday night watch. To my surprise kept me interested the whole time and once the story revealed what was “inside of the minds that created the reasoning for desired revenge” it changed my opinion to one I would recommend also. Has a lesson of reasoning: that the past is not worth the loss of mental time to continue to relive agony of events of war, much less hurts that come in many fashions on our journey through life. Seeking revenge does not take away the pain of yesterday but only blinds our heart of the beauty each new sunrise allows us to experience. The Killing Season, for this reminder to me was a Excellent watch!

Not up to par for these heavy-weights
Verified purchase
I love Robert Deniro but I'm beginning to think he can't carry a motion picture anymore like back in the day. I think they were both miscast in this film.

The movie itself was entertaining to watch but I expect it will be on Netflix soon for free.

Could have been a great story of revenge but it see-saws so much that it's almost comical. Back & forth on who's beating each other.

Drink a few beers and catch a buzz before watching and it will be more enjoyable.

Worth watching.

Definitely worth watching. Between De Niro and Travolta you really can't lose. The story is a little more of soul searching then action filled. There is fighting don't get me wrong. I just think it was more the actors that made the movie then the plot or script. If they weren't as good as they are it would have sucked. I say watch it.

"The War Is Over"
Verified purchase
In reality we shoulding be killing each other -- it's against Mother Nature -- we should be cooperating & thriving together to co-exist because the real "War is over". By the way, Charles Darwin, in "The Origin Of Species" mention "Love" 95 times while he touched down only Twice mentioning: "Survival of the fittest". In short, in our everyday life we always forget to remind each other that: "The War Is Over".

DE NIRO AND TRAVOLTA TOGETHER! THAT'S A FIRST.
Verified purchase
IT WAS PRETTY GOOD MOVIE. YOU HAVE A RETIRED CAPTAIN THAT TOOK PART IN THE BALKAN WAR AS PART OF A NATO INTERVENTION WHEN SERBIA, STARTED TAKING OVER BOSNIA, CROATIA AS THE COUNTRY OF YUGOSLAVIA, STARTED DISOLVING AND CIVIL WAR BEGAN AS SOON AS THE STRONG MAN TITO DIED AFTER SO MANY YEARS IN POWER RULING. YOU GET TO SEE SOME GRUSOME SCENES AT TIMES, NOT MUCH, WHEN DE NIRO'S FLASHES BACK AND IT TAKES YOU TO THE TIME OF ETHNIC CLEANSING SERBIANS WERE DOING, BUT THEY DON'T SHOW MUCH OF IT, LIKE IN "SCHINDLER'S LIST" ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST!.
THEN YOU HAVE TRAVOLTA WHO AFTER SO MANY YEARS OF SEARCHING AFTER HE WAS HURT WHEN HE WAS PART OF A GROUP OF MEN THAT NATO SOLDIERS LINED UP TO SHOOT IN BACK OF THE HEAD AND DE NIRO WAS PART OF THEM, BUT COULD NOT GO THRU WITH IT, SO ENDS UP SHOOTING HIM, BUT NOT DEAD. TRAVOLTA SPENDS MOST OF HIS LIFE SEARCHING FOR DE NIRO AND TRAVELS TO AMERICA, WHERE HE'S LOOKING FOR REVENGE OF HIS FAMILY GETTING KILLED DURING THE WAR, SO WANTED A GAME A CAT AND MOUSE WITH DE NIRO IN THE MOUNTAINS WHERE DE NIRO HAD RETIRED TO. TRAVOLTA TRIES TO DO A PRETTY GOOD ACCENT THRU THE MOVIE AND I THINK HE MIGHT HAVE SUCCEEDED WITH IT AS I COULD NOT REALLY TELL HOW THEY TALK ANYWAY. THERE WAS A GOOD SCRIPT AND DIRECTION AS WELL OF COURSE AS GOOD ACTING FROM THE BOTH OF THEM. NOT SO MUCH OF A BIG CAST, MOVIE IS MOSTLY THEM TWO AND SOME SUPPORTING ACTING AS DE NIRO'S SON AND HIS WIFE THAT HAD A BABY BUT DE NIRO HAD NOT YET MET, DUE TO HIS DISTANCING FROM THEM FOR MANY YEARS AND CONTINUAL REFUSAL TO SEE THEM, PART THAT WAS NOT EXPLAINED WELL ENOUGH, OTHER THAN HIS GUILT FOR BEING PART OF NATO DURING THAT WAR AND ASHAMED OF THINGS THEY ASKED HIM TO DO AND THE KILLING HE SAW ALL THOSE YEARS! DO NOT REMEMBER THIS FILM MAKING IT TO THE VIEWING AUDIENCE IN THATRRES AND IF IT DID, IT WASN'T IN MANY CITIES. COMES OUT AT THE END OF AUGUST SOMETIMES, AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL ONLY NOW. I RECOMMENDED. (BUT THEN AGAIN, MOST ANYTHING DE NIRO IS PART OF I LIKE TO SEE! )

It was OK
Verified purchase
Watching Robert Dinero, do hand to hand combat at the age of 70 is laughable...But if you have nothing better to do..and need to kill time this movie will do the trick. The story is good...but a little bit of a reach, and John Travolta has come a long way from Saturday Night Fever, I love his Serbian Accent lol.

Watchable, but not impressed.
Verified purchase
The first thing i thought after the movie ended was that i really expected more from these 2 actors. It seemed a little cheesy, and didn't seem to have much depth considering the nature of the subject matter. I enjoyed it, but was left feeling like it was a 'B' movie.

Purchased to review for my site haveuscene.com. I did not like this film at all. Travolta's accent is horrible and I was not convinced that Travolta or De Niro were former warriors. The poster makes the film look cool but looks can be deceiving.
