Luke is the kind of reporter who meticulously fact checks his work before submitting it for print, so when his editors reject an article detailing atrocities committed by Canadian soldiers against Afghani civilians, he indignantly quits. Subsequently offered a job writing about Afghani hashish for a high profile marijuana advocacy magazine, Luke returns to the war-torn country to

Few people will gain a greater understanding of Canada's war from this movie. There are a handful of worthy moments, but it's too bogged down in cliché.

[This] attempt to mine the material for black comedy is full of war-is-hell clichés, flat jokes and ragged storytelling.

Audience Reviews for Afghan Luke

A tremendously entertaining and off the wall-funny dark comedy thats a must-see. It`s fresh, smart, well-crafted and wickedly original. A fun, thrilling and insanely enjoyable movie thats filled with humor, action, suspense and the madness of war. A brilliant and hilarious comedy that has fun with its material and has somehting to say. A bold, eye-opening and outragious movie that you cant get enough of. Director, Mike Clattenburg steps out of the world of Trailer Park Boys andinto a new light and style and just nails it dead-on. A classic. One of the finest and most entertaining Canadian films i have ever seen. Nick Stahl gives a strong, compelling, funny and wonderful performance that just shows off his rich star power. The best war comedy since Three Kings. One hell of a fun movie
