A solid movie covering a few days of a small part of the complex Afghanistan war from the perspective of Canadian soldiers.

I found very realistic from combat personnel point of view the politicking do whatever it takes to make a bad situation bearable and it seems there is no end, not being able to go home.

Written and directed by Paul Gross, this is a 2015 Canadian Afghan-war drama inspired by stories from real soldiers.
With an anti-war theme implied, it is a gripping war depiction with realistic performances and a heartbreaking romance.

This is truly abysmal- it's a complete mess from top to bottom with some pretty amateurish and hammy acting. Avoid this film.

I like Sutherland, Rossif. Think he's underrated as an actor.

Hyena Road, written & directed by & starring Paul Gross, is about Canadian Troops in Afghanistan. A well told tale of war without all the expected "theatrics" of other war movies I've seen.
Hyena Road had great impact on me for the simplicity of the telling and the critical nature of the subject.
Our troops are all heros. Anyone not appreciating that fact should go over to Afghanistan and give it a try.

I confess I had zero expectations but found it surprisingly interesting. The concept of a country being the graveyard of Empires cannot be disputed. The quagmire bankrupted the Soviets and is well on its merry way to bankrupt us.

I enjoyed the movie, Paul Gross acting and directing was interesting, did not affect the quality of the movie at all

There are plenty of "war is hell" films that go beneath the surface fighting to the machinations and manipulations behind the scenes. It is tempting to dismiss "Hyena Road" as just one more. On the other hand, it is equally tempting to note that a Canadian film can play with the big boys, with equal production values. Overall, though, I see a depth to the writing and acting that is not in evidence in others of the genre, although it is easy to see disjointed gaps in some of the script.

The sentiment to support Canadian films aside, I find this film to be just OK. The landscape and some of the characters are interesting. But somehow I find the story-telling style to be too documentary, lacking the finesse of the more capable directors.

Above average exploration about conflict in Afghanistan.
Lots of Canadian content. It shows the complexities of this conflict. We are fighting conventional war in a country where we do not understand tribal customs or loyalties.
Thank you Paul Gross for portraying our armed forces

A good Canadian film (its not often that you can say that). Paul Gross acts, writes, directs and produces the film. He is much more than a pretty face and Canadians should really appreciate the range of his talents. An extraordinary performer.
