Trivia

Nanawatai (Pashto: "sanctuary") is a tenet of the Pashtunwali code of the Pashtun people. It allows a beleaguered person to enter the house of any other person and make a request of him which cannot be refused, even at the cost of the host's own life or fortune. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Hyena Road: a new Black Hawk Down.
28 January 2016 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This film is catching, engaging. Characters are nice and well played: a sharp sniper unit, a beautiful lady captain, bad and good Afghans, a smart intelligence officer… in the end I felt a little bit Canadian (at least in the heart) myself.

The title road perhaps actually exists, or perhaps not, it's not clear. The Toronto Sun says that 'Hyena' is one of the nicknames of a road Canadian troops built in Kandahar province during the war...

In any case it's not Ridley Scott's but watching this film I had the same feeling of true war (true fighting) I had watching 'Black Hawk Down'. And, although due, this is a big compliment nonetheless.
