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
