"Hyena Road" is a skillfully filmed reminder, if one is needed, about why Afghanistan earned its status as the "graveyard of empires."

Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, 2016-03-11

 

The war story featuring good people making the best of a bad situation may feel very familiar, but it is a better kind of familiarity that also characterizes Hyena Road.

Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail, 2015-10-09

 

The goal of the movie is truth-telling rather than flag-waving, but it also succeeds as impactful storytelling.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2015-10-08

 

Gross' script realistically depicts the uncertain and frequently shifting alliances that characterized the Afghan conflict's security situation.

Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-10-07

 

The conflict between acting strategically from the comfort of a military base, and acting morally on the ground, plays well in Hyena Road.

Jim Slotek, Toronto Sun, 2015-10-07

 

An engrossing rebuttal to the sense that only Hollywood can do big, kinetic entertainment.

Ian Bailey, Globe and Mail, 2015-10-02

 

Gross ... is ultimately unable to satisfy the rules of dramatic engagement.

Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, 2016-03-10

 

Viewers are graced with a few disappointingly subdued action scenes, two humdrum romantic subplots, and a virtual museum of bad acting.

Sam Weisberg, Village Voice, 2016-03-08

 

Alternately detailed and derivative, thesp-filmmaker Paul Gross' third feature has a relatively offbeat point of view that only partially masks its formulaic characters and narrative twists.

Geoff Berkshire, Variety, 2015-09-15
