Robert De Niro runs from John Travolta in the first Killing Season trailer
Is it just me, or are there a lot more B-movies these days? Maybe it’s the fact that former A-list stars are heading overseas for quick paychecks and short shooting schedules, but it feels like no one is above starring in a straight to video movie. Nicolas Cage and John Cusack have even started to go that route, so I guess we shouldn’t be shocked to see Robert De Niro and John Travolta follow suit. But this latest film, KILLING SEASON, looks almost unwatchable.
The film stars John Travolta as a former Serbian soldier that’s hell bent on getting revenge on Robert De Niro. And yes, Travolta even tries to do a Eastern European accent, which just adds to the pain. The film is directed by Mark Steven Johnson, who is lucky to be getting work after he destroyed DAREDEVIL and GHOST RIDER. If any of these guys deserves to be relegated to be making B-movies in desolate Eastern European countries, it’s Mark Steven Johnson. KILLING SEASON hits VOD on July 12th.
