IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Killing Season is like the Saturday morning cartoon version of a terrible movie: still bad, but at least colorful enough to go down easy.
The A.V. Club - Ben Kenigsberg
With casting this unconvincing, no one is watching to get a lesson in the horrors of war.
The Playlist - Gabe Toro
Director Mark Steven Johnson can’t seem to balance a tone here, which is a pity because for the most part he stands back and lets the two stars go at each other.
The New York Times - David DeWitt
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.
Slant Magazine - Andrew Schenker
Mark Steven Johnson's Killing Season is a hard movie to take seriously, which is particularly unfortunate since it deals with such weighty issues as genocide, the ethical compromises that everyone makes in combat, and the lingering effects of wartime decisions on participants years down the line.
