The war has ended but Jane,wearying of army life,is tricked by a greedy friend into returning to London and spending her husband's money. Meanwhile Sharpe is set up by defeated Major Ducos and charged with stealing the French imperial treasure. He is put on trial but escapes with Harper and Fredrickson and sets out to find the honest Major Maillot who was coerced into signing the false accusation. Ducos's men have Maillot shot but his widowed sister Lucille hides Sharpe whilst Fredrickson tracks down former foe General Calvet. Calvet allies with Sharpe to hunt down Ducos and regain the treasure. But Jane,now foolishly involved with fortune hunter Rossendale,may be harder to recapture. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

In both the written prologue, and the dialog, the king of France who is about to take the throne is referred to as "Louis Phillippe". It should actually be Louis XVIII, the brother of the executed Louis XVI. "Louis Phillippe" is their cousin, of the house of Orleans, who comes to the throne in 1830, some sixteen years after this movie. See more »

Quotes

[after Harper tells him that Jane has left him for another man, Sharpe waits about thirty seconds, then runs into the house and kicks open - literally - Lucille's bedroom door]
Richard Sharpe: Begging your pardon, ma'am. Your door was locked.

Give it a 9 because of the breadth of action.
23 May 2009 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I'll admit I'm a sucker for the Sharpe books and films. Both strands excellent.

Sharpe's Revenge is a little more complex than usual; the English and French combining to sort out a problem?.

As with most comments here, this episode belongs to Philip Whitchurch as Frederickson, and, yes, Cécile Paoli as Lucille is captivating.

But Abigail Cruttenden as Sharpe's wife really started to rankle me in this and following episodes. Could be good acting, but I just don't find anything fanciable in her - somebody else said "airhead" - exactly. Mind you Sean Bean might agree in retrospect - how long did their real life marriage last?.

Spare a thought for Féodor Atkine as Ducos. Excellent slimy character throughout. The running gag in the series of his stamped on set of good glasses is his undoing here.

Now - to all other viewers in the UK and Ireland - watch the US population react with a few "no"s to "was this comment useful". Everything has to be positive over there.
