Killing Season is a 2013 American action thriller film written by Evan Daugherty and directed by Mark Steven Johnson for Millennium Films, as the first on-screen pairing of actors John Travolta and Robert De Niro. The film pertains to a personal fight between an American and a Serb war veteran.

During the Bosnian War, American troops witness atrocities and then shoot Serb soldiers they hold accountable for them.

In present-day Belgrade, Serbia, former Scorpions soldier Emil Kovač (Travolta), who survived the shootings, meets his informant to retrieve a file on American military veteran and former NATO operative Colonel Benjamin Ford (De Niro). Meanwhile, Ford has retreated to a cabin somewhere in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee, to try to forget the war. Now a recluse, he meets Kovač, posing as a European tourist, during a hunting trip. The two men become friendly, until Kovač reveals his true identity. Intent on revenge, he initiates a gory game of cat-and-mouse with Ford. The latter is badly injured but is quick to rebound. It is revealed that Ford shot Kovač in the back, crippling him for years. After a showdown, Kovač is overpowered by Ford. They reach a peaceful compromise, however, after understanding each other’s predicament. Kovač quietly returns to Serbia, while Ford visits his son, to make up for missing his grandson’s baptism.
