Hyena Road

LB2 Sep 15 1:30pm | In brief: Paul Gross (Passchendaele) directs and co-stars in this taut war drama about Canadian troops in Afghanistan weathering Taliban attacks while struggling to complete construction on a crucial highway link.

Ramblings: Great script which Paul Gross says was based on stories told by soldiers he met in Afghanistan. Excellent acting by Rossif Sutherland. As much action as you'd expect for a war movie. It took the first hour before I could follow the story but it fell together quite quickly after that. Shows the futility of our armed forces' expedition to Afghanistan. Difficult to get out.
