Storyline

The South Essex regiment arrives in Spain,led by the cowardly,stupid Simmerson with his nephew Gibbons and friend Berry to whom Sharpe takes an instant dislike. Due to Simmerson's incompetence on a mission to blow up an enemy bridge the British standard flag is captured by the French. Simmerson tries to blame Sharpe but Wellesley learns the truth and promotes Sharpe to captain. After Sharpe has caught Berry and Gibbons trying to rape a Spanish girl he challenges them to a duel. Berry accepts but tries to kill Sharpe during a night patrol and is himself killed by Harper. Sharpe and his men pursue the French and succeed in capturing their standard,an eagle belonging to Napoleon. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Maj. Hogan: [to Simmerson after the disasterous loss at the bridge] You've lost the Colours, sir. The King's own Colours, touched by his own hand. Now take my advice, and a pistol, and go behind that tent, and blow out what's left of your brains.

A SUPERB WAR DRAMA
8 May 2000 | by (Redcar, England) – See all my reviews

This installment in the career on Richard Sharpe is possibly the best of the series.

It is a mix of terrible leadership, outstanding battle scenes, and bitter rivalry between officers.

Sean Bean is perfect as Sharpe, but this film lacks the beauty of Elizabeth Hurley, who appeared in Sharpe's Enemy, later in the series.
