Decent Sharpe movie
28 October 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Although I enjoyed this episode very much I did miss something! The previous episodes had more impact than this one! The characterizations were flat! And there was not enough interaction between Sharpe and Harper! It did show the first signs of trouble for Sharpe concerning his wife Jane! Overall there was enough humor and action to keep you satisfied but the intensity from the previous episode is gone! What i really liked in this episode that they showed what the chosen men are about! I mean they showed respect to true soldiers no matter what colors they are wearing! If this actually happened in that time,I don't know, but it was a nice touch!
