Blu-ray Release: Hyena Road

January 26, 2016

By John Corrado

Hyena Road Blu-rayToday, Elevation Pictures is releasing the recent Canadian epic Hyena Road on Blu-ray.  Directed by Paul Gross, the modern war film focuses on a group of Canadian soldiers stationed in Kandahar, charting the stories of an idealistic young sniper (Rossif Sutherland) and tough intelligence officer (Paul Gross), who often clash in their differing ideas of what decisions to make on the ground.

Although the story and characters are often painted in broad strokes, Hyena Road offers some tense and authentically brutal sequences of combat, which are admittedly ambitious for a homegrown film.  Altogether, this is a well-intentioned and modestly engaging action drama that channels themes of combat through a more Canadian lens, and my full review can be found right here.

The Blu-ray also includes four featurettes on the production.

Hyena Road is 120 minutes and rated 14A.
