Killing Season (2013) Review

The facility here is interesting, the ability is extraordinary, the activity and atmosphere is fine, yet the end result is one of one of the most befuddling messes I can long keep in mind.

The premise is this; two decades after the Bosnian battle, a retired US soldier now enduring in the Appalachian countryside locates a strange hitch-hiker with a secret past. Turns out said hitch-hiker was amongst a team of adversary soldiers that he had (almost) carried out 20 years prior.

Now he has come for his long waited for vengeance, but initially he wishes to listen to old Johnny Money records as well as drink some great southerly bourbon with him. I put on’& rsquo; t blame John Travolta for spoiling this flick. I blame the casting supervisor and also John Travolta’& rsquo; s representative for not chatting him out of this. Travolta right here plays said Bosnian war expert (on the Serbian side) as well as throughout the motion picture does his finest impact that accent, however primarily just comes off seeming like the long lost lovechild of Borat and also Apu from the Simpsons. This would certainly not be such a problem if Travolta’& rsquo; s character were not the second most important one in the film, and the chief bad guy on top of that.

For another trouble, Robert DeNiro, plays the retired US veteran of the Bosnian problem, and has to do with a years as well old for the role, at the very least. He would certainly have been over fifty already by the time the Serb war was going on, which’& rsquo; s twenty years back.

There is a very intriguing property, a great message, and also some excellent dramatic moments in this movie. But every one of that is much overshadowed by the most miscast leads that I have seen given that Charlton Heston was asked to play a Mexican (in a better motion picture than this).
