Storyline

Based on the novel by Bernard Cornwell, "Sharpe's Waterloo" brings maverick British officer Lt. Col. Richard Sharpe to his last fight against the French, in June of 1815. Sharpe is assigned to the Prince of Orange's staff, and is rejoined with Sgt. Harper (retired) and riflemen Hagman and Harris at the famous battles of Quatre Bras and Waterloo. Not only must Sharpe deal with incompetent orders from the Prince of Orange, that lead to slaughter, he confronts his wife's lover, Lord Rossendale, in the midst of battle. The film climaxes as Wellington's small army 'holds the line' against Napolean's veteran Imperial Guard. Written by Derek Relf

Trivia

In historical truth, the Prussians were indeed late to the battle, though that may have made all the difference. According to author Bernard Cornwell, if the Prussians had arrived on time, then Napoleon would most likely have backed out and would have fought another day. The way it happened, his army was far too involved to be pulled out, and Napoleon was utterly defeated. See more »

Hagman is shot in the head, and he falls on his front with his head facing the left. When Harris crawls over to grab his hand one last time, his head is now turned to the right. See more »

Try harder
14 March 2005 | by (Perthshire) – See all my reviews

I loved the Sharpe series but I have to disagree with comments about 'how British actors will have to speak so that us USA folk can understand' I see this statement so often throughout this site

So I am totally irritated at the continuing Whining about 'Understanding British Accents, TRY HARDER !!! we have to as some N American accents (Parts of Virginia and the deep south ) are quite difficult to understand for us Brits but WE USE OUR INTELLIGENCE to understand what they are saying. YOUR JUST LAZY Another thing. Please stop referring to British ACCENTS : there are English accents, Scottish accents, welsh accents Irish (N) accents but no British ACCENTS

I thank you
