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
The book that Robert De Niro is seen reading at the start of the movie is "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Ernest Hemingway. The Hemingway novel features a main character named "Robert", and deals with the Spanish Civil War, the Bosnian/Serbian civil war is the background to the movie. See more »

And here comes another one from Hollywood. I ll be short because its mine first review.
Plot mistake - "one American and one Serbian" OK lets see about this - on poster there are 2 guys,main actors. So probably plot is about them,because Deniro's name is American i presume that Travolta is acting that Serb guy. So lets get a little attention on that EMIL KOVAČ As far as i remember Emil is so common Muslim name and Kovač is also more commoner Croatian surname. Where the heck do you see Serbian there. The more funnier thing is that this is movie about Bosnian war LOL
Like some croatio-bosnian will fight for Serbs ,yea right.
I am aware that Hollywood is not History channel,but come on...get some facts at least for maincharacter names.
