Hyena Road

Here’s a film that seems as if it were ripped from the headlines

HR1With the recent discussion of the Canadian Forces’ role in international conflicts, Hyena Road arrives on the scene to remind us that there is a personal element to all these far-off events. Writer, director, and actor Paul Gross (Due South) continues his examination of Canadian soldiers’ wartime efforts which he started with the WWI epic, Passchendaele. This Hollywood-type movie departs however,  from typical jingoism to reveal a quiet Canadian approach- understated, sincere, and very realistic.

From the natural, strong ensemble acting to the detailed, well-shot action scenes, Hyena Road drops you directly into the action, allowing the viewer to get a clearer picture of what these seemingly never-ending conflicts are about, as well as their personal cost.

120 minutes
