Quotes

[while Loup is holding Lucy as a hostage, he tries to rape her. She smashes a bottle over his head, pushing him away. He brushes glass out of his hair and laughs]
Loup: What are you going to do with that, my lady? Kill me?
[She holds the bottle to her own neck]
Lady Kiely: You will not defile me, sir. On my child's life, you will not.
[Loup pauses, uncertain. He takes a step toward her, and she nicks herself, drawing blood]
Lady Kiely: I will do it, as God sees me.
[pause]
Loup: [sighs] My men will show you to your quarters.

Sean Bean and Sharpe are in top form
30 May 2004 | by nevoySee all my reviews

Sean Bean and Richard Sharpe are in top form here. The film is gritty, it gives Sharpe some of his classic "I'm going to make soldiers out of you" speeches, the supporting characters among the Riflemen have a lot to do, and there are some fairly hard-hitting, realistic looks at politics, war, and the "Irish Troubles" along the way. Plus Sharpe does not end up bedding every woman in sight, which is a lot closer to the books than some of the other Sharpe films which end up making Sharpe a Napoleonic era James Bond who sleeps with every woman within 1000 miles. The Sharpe films are very variable, and some of them are lot weaker and cheesier than others. This one is one of the good ones.
