Trivia:
The "Chosen Men", although fact based, were not a unit but the equivalent of Lance Corporals. The producers brought them together so that Sharpe's character would have a regular team around him, with a sense of camaraderie.See more »
Goofs:
Anachronisms: After Teresa has helped Sharpe and his men to gain access to Torrecastro she appears to pull down a zip fastener to remove the skirt she was wearing over her trousers. A functional version of this type of fastener was not perfected until 1913 by Gideon Sundback in the U.S.A.See more »

Man in Black:You say you are an Irishman. Why should you be loyal to the British dogs, who want to take you to Lisbon to shoot you?
Patrick Harper:Jesus, you took the words right out of my mouth.
Man in Black:I can help you. Give me the box?
Patrick Harper:And if I do?
Man in Black:You will be rich.
Patrick Harper:And if I don't?

Excellent action and drama. Always interesting., 31 March 2006
Author: bowtro from United States

This is one of 14 "Sharpe" movie series. They are all very good. They are never dull. Mixes enough historical data to create interest. Costumes and equipment authentic. His struggle to overcome his lowly birth and better himself through military service achievement is heart rending. Gen Sir Wellesly who commissioned him from a Sgt. believes in him and backs him subtly. His faithful friend Sgt.Harper shares many adventure and helps Lt.Sharpe through many escapades. Assumpta Serena as his love interest, Teresa, and later wife is very well played. Sharpe has to constantly overcome hardship, discriminations and problems his peers do not. He is constantly being ragged on by his superiors and fellow officers who are much less brave. Sharpe has integrity and grit which is a big help to him. But he always wins the girl and overcomes by sheer determination and street smarts. One of the best TV series ever.
