Killing Season (2013) Movie review; The movie is wide of the mark

De Niro and Travolta together on the big screen..they are both trying to kill each other,.. this must be action gold surely ?

Well I am afraid not, it starts off OK, (as these things usually do ) but it slowly turns into a juggling act of, now I am going to kill you but I am gonna be long-winded about it so this will give you the time you need to escape and gain the advantage.

The film lacked any real smarts, if you are going to write a movie that only includes two actors the writing has to be something pretty special, in this case it is not,when the end comes you are relieved and not enthralled.

I love both these actors but this film is wide of the mark, the only positive would be the special effect in the movie with regards to injuries and scars,if this turns you on then this is the movie for you.

  1. I personally haven’t seen the film but I agree with your analysis of that dried up boring format as it pertains to a lot of large budget films which are still being made in the same format that has been the norm for so many years, yet when you start to go back in time and search through the films of the sixties and seventies there are those out there like. twisted nerve that have an interesting lack of format which twists and turns even though twisted nerve is of a different genre, more thriller than action.

    The 80’s action format should have died when pulp fiction was released and I think that tarantino has done his best to quash that format of i’ll chase you then you’ll chase me and diversified action in such a way that has inspired so many other directors unfortunately sometimes this formula creeps back in and I call it lazy film making which doesn’t really deserve the box office dollars that it craves.

    Having said that I haven’t yet reviewed the film so I will get back to you when I have seen it.

  2. Thank you for your detailed comment,your right in the 80’s it did seem acceptable somewhat,I just can’t believe that they got these two stars to agree to be in this. that said De niro lends his hand to almost any film of nowdays.
