There is no article to comment on. So i guess a general comment on the movie is all I can give. I havent seen it. It is another one of those movies that hundreds of millions of females will think is the most romantic story of all time. They will cry. They will wish their bf/husbands were like that. Yet, if any man... in real life ever attempted such a thing he would at the very least be sent away. More likely the man would be considered a stalker immediately. A PFA would be issued almost immediately. His passion would keep him trying and, being a war vet, he would be considered dangerous. He would be 302'd into an inpatient facility in which his military pay would not cover. In fact he wouldnt receive any pay for a number of years until he files a suit with an attourney. Being locked up with a PFA against him would hinder this proccess and possibly send him into a psychotic break and aggravate his more than likely case of PTSD. He would probly have a flashback while in hospital care and severely would another patient, possibibly killing them. Then he would be sent to a military court and quickly found guilty of murder and locked up. Dishonerably discharged and lose all benefits that he may havereceived after waiting 5-7 years for the government to actually pay him. He would likely rot in the stockade and commit suicide while grasping the photo of that woman with whom he was so fascinated with. His last breaths unnoticed by any human being. Just a rat passing by on his way to eat his leftover food from lunch. As his heart slowly comes to a stop he realizes his life meant nothing. That there is no love. That right and wrong dont matter in love, or war or anywhere else. His last thought is that absolute power corrupts absolutely... he accepts his fate, a smile comes to his face and his life force leaves his body. Thats real life. No happy ending. No trule love. Just war. Stalking. Protection from abuse orders. Accusations. presumtions. expectations. reality. acceptance. life and death. and finally... a bunch of people with too much time and money making millions so people with even more time with less money can waste their money and their time being entertained because they are unable to entertain themselves.
