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

Why does this have to be the end?

Certainly the acting and photography are excellent. The in depth character development was something to admire. I now have the whole series, and as far as I can tell, it's historically accurate. But I would dearly love to get a French movie depicting the same war...since History is a tale told by the winner.

Shall I say anything about Bean's wife now turning into the villain. Wonder if it was about the time their marriage was breaking up. He and the author are mates, it appears. The fact that he physically favors my brother-in-law who lost a leg in Korea has nothing to do with my admiration for the series. But I must say that seeing "Essex Boys" made me wonder if that title came from him leading the South Essex contingent in the movie. I really don't like seeing him as a villain, but you can tell the English don't mind having their heroes be unfaithful to their girlfriend. That made me rather squirm, as he beds his old girlfriend while married....and elsewhere, does the same while betrothed. But we do have a different style here: serial polygamy, but no screwing around while you're married....plus a healthy heaping of hypocrisy.

Great series. Somebody make them make some more.
