A decent war movie

Note: I have seen this movie for "Xbox's Free Movie Weekend" that took place on the weekend of the August 5th. So I did not pay for this movie nor I did not pay to see this movie. The movie is "R" of course; there is gore, chopped off heads, body parts flying off, etc. It's your typical Army movie gore that makes you say, "Dammmmnnn." Hyena Road doesn't really have that many intense moments like with most Army related movies nowadays, you get a few, one or two major fights and that's about it. The acting is average, the plot was decent, the twist (can be expected) and the dialogue between characters could have been better. In some parts of the movie it was/it can be predictable, but I just wished it ended differently (but you can't change "inspired by true events" history). On the Xbox app (where I watched it), there aren't any subtitles for when the people are talking. This more or less takes you out of the movie moment and confuses you at times when these characters talk. Maybe there are subtitles on different movie outlets, but I didn't see any on the Xbox app. Hyena Road is nothing horrible, but it's an average war movie that you "don't need to see," but if you do see it don't expect too much.

Book of the film question.

Am trying to figure out how "1000 true stories" became "Hyena Road"? Can somebody tell me the connection between the two please? Maybe there is some obscure book of this title out there some where that may not even be a war book . Paul Gross would probably be the best person to answer this question as he is listed as screen writer. But seriously I would welcome any discussion as above. The movie was very good as very few Canadian movies about the war have been produced. It is noted that most of the actors were Canadians and parts of the movie filmed in Manitoba on a military base. The rest was filmed in Jordan. Paul Gross sure had his hands full as he starred, produced and wrote the screenplay.

So far from Afghanistan I forgot what it was like when I was there.

I know their were Canadians who did combat operations in Afghanistan, but unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to work with them. I absolutely know they would hate this movie though. They way the Soldiers were portrayed in such a cliché way, to the horrible one dimensional representations of the Afghans. All the great user reviews from the Canadians here, do yourselves a favor and go talk to one of your veterans...and not someone who worked in the TOC or someone who claims they are a war hero, go talk to an average grunt who went out on patrol everyday and saw action a handful of times because this is the fantasy type crap that creates s**t ideas of what war is like.
