Storyline

Our story begins at the end of Sharpe's Challenge. Sharpe and Harper are en route to Madras when they encounter a baggage train from the East India Company traveling through hostile territory. Chitu, a legendary bandit leader in control of the area, strikes fear in the members of the party. When an attack occurs Sharpe takes control of the situation, leading the group 300 miles through enemy territory and training the disorganized, rag-tag group to be proper soldiers. Despite all these responsibilities, Sharpe still manages to find time for a little romance... Written by anonymous

Trivia

The character Pvt. Daniel Deever (Charles Venn) dies a heroic death, but it is just after he commits an act of cowardice -- abandoning his post and comrades in the face of the enemy. In 1890, Rudyard Kipling penned the poem "Danny Deever" about the execution of a British soldier for murder. To "do a Danny Deever" is archaic slang for committing a hanging offense; cowardice is among those offenses. See more »

Goofs

During several of the battle scenes when the flintlock muskets are fired, neither the hammer nor the strike plate move, though we see spark, flame and smoke. The hammers are not even pulled back so the weapons can fire. See more »

Quotes

Richard Sharpe: [Wants to kill Hakeswill's son] Stand aside Pat.
Patrick Harper: Can't let you do it.
Richard Sharpe: Stand aside, damn you!
Patrick Harper: You'll have to put me down first.

Another fine addition to the Sharpe series.
13 February 2011 | by (The San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

Sean Bean returns as the ever intrepid Richard Sharpe in this latest reworking of Bernard Cornwell's earlier books. Shot on 35mm this film, and the previous film from a few years earlier, "Peril" has z different look and feel to it, but regardless we get to see Sharpe's continued exploits and share in his adventures.

The production values are higher than ever. The Indian productions seem to have been taken up a notch or two from the films shot in the 90s. Sun drenched scenery, both plush and arid, they're a far cry from the relatively frigid realms of the winter locations in Spain and Portugal.

For whatever reason the direction feels a little different as well, but ironically enough seems to hearken back to the feeling that the earlier Sharpe films gave the audience. There's a sense of adventure, intrigue and the exotic, as well as the romantic.

Sharpe is presented with some internal challenges as well as a plethora of external ones. Teresa, though long gone since the fourth film, is still very much alive in Sharpe's memory. To find out why, you have to see the film.

If I had one critique it's that Sen Bean, being a smoker, has aged prematurely. Oh sure he's old, but his smoking habit doesn't help sell him as the dashing hero type. He looks ragged, which, ironically enough, actually helps accentuate the character. Still, it would behoove him to toss the cigarettes and add some years to his life.

Still, it's a solid installment. A bit longer than usual, and it does take liberties with some of the characters, but it's a decent watch.

Give it a whirl and enjoy.
