Not Bad

Over all this is an action packed movie, where an old soldier who was a Col. during the cold war (De Niro) ordered his troops to murder some Serbs who were committing genocide against women, children, and men alike. One person who was ordered to be killed (Travolta) didn't die and comes back for revenge. It becomes a struggle between the two to see who will survive. There is no sex or nudity, but a couple of spots where a joke is told about a guy getting a "b-job." There is also a little drinking, and some violence. Overall I think it was a good movie that was pretty action packed. If you don't want your kids to hear the sexual joke, it get told when De Niro and Travolta go hunting and at the very end. You can expect these spots and mute it for about 15-20 seconds. I believe there is one spot where Travolta said he wanted to F**K his nurse who helped him recover.

17 and up.

this thriller movie killing season stars with two actors Robert De Niro and John Travolta is a boring movie and a waste of time with no plot to the story only about revenge to one other this thriller movie is best left for your older adults and parents you need to know that killing season has a lot of intense violence shown such as characters being shot in the head close range in execution style and One character is shot through the leg, with spurting, gurgling blood. He's then forced to push a metal stake through the hole, and he's hung by a rope from this wound. Another character is shot with an arrow through his face (his cheeks) and then tied up and tortured with salt and lemon juice. A character digs a piece of bloody shrapnel from his own leg and uses it to stab another man. Fighting with knives, a car crash, and various arguing and taunting One character tells a joke with some strong sexual content about blow jobs and stuff a voluptuous bartender shows some cleavage in a couple of scenes characters used strong language and there is social drinking shown when the characters drink almost an entire bottle of Jagermeister, getting fairly tipsy; this is presented very much as a social ritual.

Gruesome and very violent revenge thriller but entertaining and clever but mature.

This very disturbing and graphic revenge thriller starts off with a man named Benjamin Ford, who survived a tour of the Bosnian war. He has retreated to cabin in the woods, living a simple life, photographing animals, reading great books, and going to bed very early in the evening. Meanwhile, a man named Emil Kovac, who encountered Benjamin during the war, has spent years looking for him after Benjamin did something that Emil still hasn't forgiven. At first, Benjamin thinks that Emil is very friendly, talking the whole night, and sharing his bottle of wine. But the next morning, Emil and Benjamin go on a deer hunt, but suddenly, Benjamin realize's he's Emil's pray, and Emil will do anything to get him dead. On the other hand, Benjamin isn't easy to catch, and soon, Benjamin and Emil are playing a cat and mouse game, testing each others skills to a limit, but will Benjamin escape him in time? Does Emil want to do something else with Benjamin, and not kill him? Violence 4/5: Violence is very bloody, frequent, and sometimes, shockingly brutal: characters are shot with arrows, bashed with rocks, get in car accidents, burned, tortured, and bashed with the butt of guns. A man is brutally shot in the leg with an arrow and blood splatters and gurgles. He is then forced to put barbed wire through, and another man hangs him on a poll through the wound, gurgling blood. A young baby is almost shot with an arrow. A man is shot through the cheek with an arrow with a huge, gory wound and blood splatters. Two men are in a car crash with a gory head wound. A man shoots another mans leg with a fire gun and the gory, burned leg is seen. A man is stabbed in the neck with a piece of wood with some bloody spilling out. In a flashback sequence, two women are dragged out of their homes, and it's implied they were killed. References to rape. A flashback sequence shows soldiers being shot in the back of the head with gory blood splatter. A man is crushed by huge amounts of wood planks, and has a gory piece of sharp wood in his leg with pooling blood. A man's leg is sliced with blood pooling everywhere as he screams. A man's cheek wounds are seen, and he is tortured with lemonade and salt going through the wounds as he screamed. Fighting with knives and guns. Gory wounds. Gory, decomposing, frozen bodies are seen in the back of a car. Brief, bloody war violence includes shooting, splattering blood, and burning bodies. Children and women in brief peril. Sexual content and nudity 2/5: Strong sexual innuendo. References to oral sex. Language 5/5: Constant, extremely strong language includes "f--k," "s--t," "ass," "b---h," "motherf--ker," "d--k," "p---y," and more. Drinking and drugs 2/5: Characters get drunk while drinking vodka. A character is seen drinking a bottle of wine. References to heroine. This movie is entertaining, clever, and very thrilling, and although it's very gory and mature, it's great for anyone who can handle violence and swearing. My rating:R for strong bloody violence, disturbing images, pervasive language, and alcohol/drug references.
