Trivia

In the novel of the same name, Sharpe fights at the famous Battle of Salamanca. In the film, the setting is changed to a key fortress in a town called Villafranca. In reality, there was a town of that name in Spain that saw action during the Peninsular war, but much earlier and without British involvement. See more »

Action, Romance and Two Very Sexy Actors

Truly a set of movies for all tastes: as the English fight the French, we see the corruption both in the English military, as well as in the bedroom. Sharpe is pretty sexy as is his Irish right hand man. There is some keen acting in here, despite the soldiers falling too long after the explosion that was supposed to kill them. But the principal actors do an excellent job, especially since this was 'just' made for TV. Prefer Bean as a hero than as the villain, which he plays beautifully well in a James Bond movie. He also looks like an ex-brother-in-law of mine, which makes for some interesting fantasies. My grandsons loved the battle scenes, and of course, the Spanish stripping the skin off the French soldiers made for some interesting discussions.
