Sometimes you don’t want to really see a movie but you’re drawn to it for some reason; whether it’s the actors, the ridiculous plot, or something else. You just have to see that movie.
Well, Killing Season is that movie for me and the reason behind that is simply John Travolta’s terrible Russian accent. The film stars Travolta and Robert DeNiro as two former soldiers who go hunting together only to realize that one of them is trying to kill the other for whatever reason. The trailer makes the actors look like former-has-beens (which Travolta has seemingly become) desperate for work. It reminds me of that Tommy Lee Jones/Benecio Del Toro film The Hunted…which this film essentially is.
The trailer features both characters taking turns getting the upper hand on each other, but doesn’t tell us too much about the plot, which is a good thing.
However, there’s not much hope for this one.
