Trivia:
Author of the Sharpe books, Bernard Cornwell has stated that a popular idea among the cast was that the next film would open up with Obadiah returning from the grave. Cornwell has also stated that he has long regretted killing off Hakeswill, for as he puts it, 'Useful villains are hard to come by'.See more »

Obadiah Hakeswill, the name just oozes villainy!, 30 November 2002
Author: grendelkhan from Xanadu

This is my favorite of the Sharpe series. Why, you may ask? Obadiah Hakeswill; it's the perfect name for the most foul of villains. Pete Postlethwaite is wonderful as the evil deserter, rapist, thief and all-around bad egg. From his guttural language to his head twitch, he exudes the greatest villainy this side of Ian Mckellan's Richard III.

Sean Bean is the swashbuckling Sharpe, with Daragh O' Malley as the faithful Sgt. Harper. We have the "Chosen Men" and Captain "Sweet William" Frederickson. What's not to love? OK, Elizabeth Hurley doesn't distinguish herself, but the rest of the principles do, including Feodor Atkine as Major Ducos.

The whole series captures the flavor of the Cornwell books, although some of the battles are fought on smaller scales. Still, the productions make the most of their budgets and score points for character. If you like historical adventure, romance, swashbuckling, or just great character acting, watch these films.
