I have been waiting for a DVD / Bluray release of this that is better than the 1990s Guild Home Video Laserdisc that I have had for many years. The first UK DVD I bought has a bad transfer, kind of yellow tinted, as others have mentioned.
This 101 Films Bluray has a good transfer, and is the best I've seen of this film...however it is cut compared to other version I own, and the cuts don't make any sense.
This isn't extensive, but the ones I noticed were:
1. Lyons brothers fire scene at the start was shorter
2. The scene where Cynthia loses it and tells Lyon that their relationship is now purely business and that he should deal with Russell, is effectively gone
3. The part where the 2 guys betting on Lyon against Atillia is cut, they no longer call him a "meek fellow"

I don't know why these were cut. They weren't controversial and aided the plot.

But regardless, if you don't know / love the film as much as I do, then you won't know they're missing and like I say it's a good transfer, a better buy than one of the earlier DVDs and I hope 101 films keep up releasing "cult" films like this at a decent price.

I was so exited today when this arrived as I was waiting for a while. Opened the case no 4 discs only 1 disc. Ok I can understand that but don't advertised it as such.I put the disc on my blu ray and thats where I realises this movie is the same exact movie that has been out in the US in the 5 movie action pack blu ray which I already have that plays in UK too.It is not UNCUT as some parts missing or different starting at the camp where Leon's superior tells him How about 2 weeks labour, and it stops. On the uncut dvd it says Starting tomorrow, you got something to cry about Leigonaire? That has been cut. In the ship you see another cut, Leon doesn't say I paid for the trip showing his hands.Also the conversation at the Doctor has been changed. In this the Doctor says they caught the criminals. Also Leon talking to his brothers wife has been cut.the argument with Sinthia at the hotel room has been cut. The part where Sinthia buys Leon clothes is extended as someone speaks to them in the changing room: all ok in there! Leon says Yes everything is fine.some angles are different too. In the beggining where Leon's brother is set on fire you see a further out camera not the close up as the uncut dvd. Now the picture quality is good and a big improvment to the dvd versions but I think a better job should had been done. Lots if grain and I mean lots of it. I am actually disappointed by this UK blu ray release of AWOL ( Lionheart). And where is the DTS sound? Just LCPM 2.0 sound. I know we have seen different dvd versions like The French and the US version but make a blu ray with every available scene included don't delete and ad things like its nothing. We the fans love this movie and we want to see a real UNCUT version of the movie not 105 min. That is a shame as I love the movie.Read more ›

Jean Claude Van Damme is one of if not the best Action Heroes of all time. Wrong Bet or AWOL as it is known in the UK is also one of his best. So to hear there is a dutch release of the film Uncut and Uncensored I was really excited. I received the DVD and watched it immediately only to find that it is the same as any other release I have owned included the VHS I bought some 15 years ago. To say I am gutted would be an understatement. The film is still class but if your hoping for some extra footage then your in for a let down. The quality of picture on this DVD is far worse than the UK release which was also a let down as it is the same quality as the old VHS!
Please note my 2 star rating is only for this DVD release not the film itself and certainly not for JCVD

This one of the Van Damme's new blu ray released being part of the The Cult Movie Collection, which include titles like Missing in Action, Black Eagle or Death Warrant. This blu ray was one of my favorite movie that I've watched when I was young boy and I really enjoy it. I like that the release company kept the original print which it is cool. The disc dosn't have any extras but definitely the quality is amazing.

this is a very good film good fight scenes all well done the only bad point is the picture quility is not that good but if u like fighting you will love this film it is well done with the plots is basically about JCV aka leon who joined the the leigon and told his brother he will always be there for him hes got 6 months left to go when he gets a letter from his sister in law telling him his brother is in hospital she phoned him before but the leigon didnt tell him so he has to escape to go and see him when he meets josh i think his friend is called he fights for money to pay for his journey to his brother and they found out he is good so they want him to fight more but he dosent want to when he goes to his sister in laws house he founds out she is in debt so he starts fighting to try to take her n her child away from all this very good film would of got 5 stars easily but the picture quility is a bit of a let down but u really have to watch this and for the price u can buy it for its so cheap and if you like this you will love kickboxer and bloodsport these are a must see for a person who loves fighting films
