User Reviews

Another good episode of the Sharpe series
14 December 2002 | by John_DaveySee all my reviews

Third in the Sharpe series , Sharpe's Company introduces Sharpe's nemesis , Sergeant Obidiah Hakeswill ( Peter Postlethwaite ) .

Hakeswill is a thoroughly nasty piece of work , having had Sharpe flogged when he was a young soldier , and starts with the same tricks again.

This film gives some idea of the tribulations of the ordinary Redcoats , at the whim of sometimes hopeless Officers whose commissions were bought , and who wanted NCOs who kept order , and didn't mind how it was done.

As with many of the Sharpe series , this is based around a historic battle . In this case it is the battle of Badajoz , where Hakeswill gets up to even more mischief .

Another great Postlethwaite performance !
