Trivia

It wasn't mentioned in the movie, but Route Hyena was designed and constructed by the American army engineers of the 864th Engineer Battalion's 557th Engineer Company as a part of the Canadian Task Force Kandahar's mission. While American soldiers provided the actual construction labor, Canadian contracting officers mobilized up to 300+ dump trucks a day to maintain a "300m per week" construction rate. The Taliban caused significant delays and constant fear among the civilian drivers shooting them from the adjacent grape fields and opium fields. See more »

Hyena Road: a new Black Hawk Down.
28 January 2016 | by 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.
