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.

Please Note: The 3 star rating is for the Universal 2002 DVD release of the movie. I would probably give the actual film 5 stars. It is listed as widescreen, when it is in fact Full Frame. This means watching the movie with black bars on either side or changing the settings of my flatscreen from 16:9 to 4:3, which makes the image look worse and rather stretched. AWOL would really benefit from a widescreen presentation as it is a relatively low budget film from the early 90s, hence why the picture quality isn't great. If I'm not mistaken, the Kickboxer DVD from 'Pyramid' suffers from the same problem. As for the film itself, if you're a Van Damme fan, then this is essential viewing. Double Impact and Bloodsport both look great on DVD so its a pity AWOL hasn't received the same treatment. Check out Blu Ray.com where 'Lionheart' (as it is known in the U.S) scored 4/5 on picture quality. Its a new release in the U.S, so it might be a while before the UK gets it.

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 certainly one of Van Damme's best early movies, a must have for action fans and cult fight movies of the 90's, also better known as Lionheart in America and A.W.O.L.: Absent Without Leave in the UK, Van Damme plays Lyon Gaultier, a deserter from the Foreign Legion arriving in the USA to find his brother has died and his sister-in-law without the money to maintain her and her child. To earn the money needed Gaultier decides to take part in some very dangerous street fights, There is plentiful action throughout this movie with lots of great fight scenes and Van Damme high kicking plenty of butt, its fast is violent its great entertainment, the rest of the cast is good too, look out for a cameo from karate champion Billy Blanks at the beginning, a must for all Van Fans!!

Blu-ray picture is pretty decent (101 films) a tad grainy in places but still looks better than DVD,
No special features which is a shame (not even a trailer at least?)
Region B, 105-mins, 1990.

Excellent Bluray. The quality is excellent for a 25 year old film. Full 1080p, MPEG-4 AVC Codec (Averaging between 20-30Mbps), natural looking picture, sustaining the grain, vibrant colours, good blacks. 101Films have included a lossless linear PCM 2 ch-soundtrack. One of my favourite JCVD films, the street fighting is awesome. This contains the Normal Theatrical cut (US-R rated) of the movie, not the international cut which is why i give 4 stars. Shame they couldnt either included the deleted/cut scenes or offered you a branching version to choose as extra's. I highly recommend this, you will not see a better version.

The movie itself, great, one of Van Damme's best (can't place one, JCVD is JCVD).

The blu ray is clean, clearer than DVD but you still get the grain in the picture, like other blu rays which are older, they're mastered onto blu but...carry the grain a bit. If you're not a nicky picky one about slightly grainy blu rays and enjoy the film that's fine you'll enjoy the movie.

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 ›
