Killing Season
What it's about:

Deep in the Appalachian Mountains, a reclusive American military veteran (Robert De Niro) and a European tourist (John Travolta) strike up an unlikely friendship.

But when the tourist's true intentions come to light, what follows is a tense battle across some of America's most forbidding landscape proving the old adage: the purest form of war is one-on-one. 

What the critics thought:

It wants to be a war-is-Hell 'coming home' story, but it ends up playing like a cheap action flick starring two men who are obviously too old to be running through the woods beating the living crap out of each other.
- Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com

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.
- David DeWitt, New York Times

The purest form of war is one on one.
