The footage seen between scenes of vehicles, Afghan soldiers, etc. were actually shot in Kandahar during the final combat deployment. See more »

Goofs

Although it's plausible, it's highly unlikely at the ending ramp ceremony that 39A and G9W (Gross) would have issued berets with the leather band. Their characters would likely have bought their own berets at this point in their career. See more »

Excellent War Movie
14 October 2015 | by briantaylor-26472See all my reviews

Well done to Paul Gross and the cast of Hyena Road for creating an authentic Canadian war movie. Being a Canadian Army officer, I had to go see this one in the theater. It was an opportune time as I was able to go with my son, a 2nd year economics student home on his Fall break.

The movie was entertaining, emotional and educational. Hyena Road weaves the perspectives of war fighters into an telling story of the character of the Canadian experience in Kandahar Province. It keeps you engaged throughout with a mix of action, soldiering and the very human dimension to conflict.

"Inside the wire, we think about what to do outside the wire. We get it wrong fifty percent of the time which means we get it right the other fifty percent of the time" and " We have to remember that the end state is not for children to fly kites" were themes that stuck with us as we drove away from the theater.

Thanks Paul,

Major Brian Taylor, Canadian Army
