Kajaki Dam 2006. A company of young British soldiers encounter an unexpected, terrifying enemy. A dried-out river bed, and under every step the possibility of an anti-personnel mine. A mine that could cost you your leg - or your life.
An investigation of the massacre of 24 men, women and children in Haditha, Iraq allegedly shot by 4 U.S. Marines in retaliation for the death of a U.S. Marine killed by a roadside bomb. The movie follows the story of the Marines of Kilo Company, an Iraqi family, and the insurgents who plant the roadside bomb.
The footage seen between scenes of vehicles, Afghan soldiers, etc. were actually shot in Kandahar during the final combat deployment. See more »
When Paul Gross's patrol arrives at the safe house to meet with the Ghost for the first time, the first Afghan National Army (ANA) jeep has a .50 cal machine gun on the roof, but it's obvious that it wasn't attached as it's on its side and the actor tries to right it at one point. See more »

Its a very well built movie with a cool pace. Enjoyed every minute of it. I liked it most, because of its much complex and deeper plot than usually in war movies. Ending was really sad, like last time i think when i saw Bambi lost its mother i guess...OK not that sad, but dramatical at its best (for a war movie anyway) Im placing Hyena Road in top 5 of all iraq/afgan war movies. So if you like Zero Dark Thirty, Hurt Locker, Charlie Wilsons War and Green Zone im sure you'll love that one too. So thanks Canada, this is how you do a war movie, and this is how most of them should be done! PS, when i read all those previous reviews written by canadians, it got me even more emotional. So many many thanks for all the emotions :)
