Storyline

Killing Season tells the story of two veterans of the Bosnian War, one American, one Serbian, who clash in the Appalachian Mountain wilderness. FORD is a former American soldier who fought on the front lines in Bosnia. When our story begins, he has retreated to a remote cabin in the woods, trying to escape painful memories of war. The drama begins when KOVAC, a former Serbian soldier, seeks Ford out, hoping to settle an old score. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game in which Ford and Kovac fight their own personal World War III, with battles both physical and psychological. By the end of the film, old wounds are opened, suppressed memories are drawn to the surface and long-hidden secrets about both Ford and Kovac are revealed. Written by producer

Just to add...
3 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

What I wanted to add is that Goran said it all. Right from the start, the skinny people behind some wired fence; dead bodies in the train waggon and misspelled "shop" sign, is a laughable mistake even for Hollywood. Even when Travolta walks into a bar and the bartender and some customers started to talk, for Americans and people that are not from Belgrade it sounds like a possible Serbian language. However, for us with a Serbian mother tongue, it was obvious that those actors were nothing close to Serbian. In any case, this movie is a shameful expression of Hollywood ignorance and lack of intellect. The entire World knows that American / NATO never had the balls to do anything on the ground. All their fighting was done from air or from far. I am sure that people are not going to be fooled by this deliberate display of fabricated facts. The only ones that should cover their faces when they walk out are those who produced such laughable story with disfigured facts.
