It's not worthless, but it's not good. As a genre film, it's too ambitious; as an art film, it's too obvious.

The pretentious, preposterous, dueling-dialect flameout called "Killing Season" has to stand as one of the biggest missed opportunities in iconic matchups.

If you've always wanted to see Robert De Niro forced to thread a steel rod through an open wound and then strung upside down by John Travolta, this is the movie for you.

Tables keep turning, traps keep springing and the actors keep acting, acting, acting.

The sight of Robert De Niro and John Travolta sharing the screen for the first time reps the one and only selling point of Killing Season.

A drawn out cat-and-mouse game never catches fire.

To put it mildly, neither of the leads has the physique for such a Darwinian showdown, and one of the frustrations of Killing Season is the way Evan Daugherty's screenplay demands near-invincibility.
