Don't judge stories you don't really know...
23 January 2007 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A previous comment on AWOL stated that the film was stereotypical, empty and pretty much lame with a typical story.

This is such a false accusation. The film is based on the ACTUAL EVENTS of James Edwards and Daisy who went AWOL. This isn't just a work of fiction created to wow audience. My Great Uncle wrote this story as dedication to his wife Daisy about what he had to go through to be by her side.

The movie while not spectacular is enjoyable, authentic and has an innonce about it that captures real life desperation.

Watch it. Learn about it. Don't just write about it in your own arrogance.
