Hyena road 2015 (film review)
"Three different men, three different worlds, three different wars - all stand at the intersection of modern warfare - a murky world of fluid morality where all is not as it seems." IMDb
Set in Afghanistan with Canadian soldiers, and staring Rossif Sutharland and Paul Gross and filmed in Manitoba and Jordan.
The setting look pretty good and for a war film they actually got the weapons muzzle flash right... there isn't much of one in the real world.
The film revolves around a small patrol of soldiers and the conflict between various groups of Taliban, with visits to the main base control room.
I found the film quite watchable, it reminded me a lot of the series Generation kill (2008) which itself was good, although this portrays the Canadian soldiers as more professional, the American Marines in Generation kill were portrayed as being a bit "gung-ho" and wild.
Waynes rating 7.5/10 Worth a watch.
