Quotes

Jane: I hate the bugle because I hate the army. Because I hate the war.
Sharpe: We all hate the war.
Jane: No you don't you love it!
Sharpe: I'm a soldier.
Jane: What will you do when you get home, Richard? You'll still be a soldier, but there won't be a war. And if there's no war then you won't be happy. What will you do all day?
Sharpe: Well, what every officer does. What every husband does. Whatever that is...
Jane: I'll tell you what they do, Richard. They ride, they hunt, they gamble, they play cards, they look after their gardens, their dogs...

Sharpe Rides to the impossible finish again
20 June 2002 | by imgoingdownthepubSee all my reviews

A brilliant film in which Tom Clegg had no book to base the film on, yet still manages to make a film worthy of the quality of the books. A great epic once again pitting Sharpe against the odds. Using spectacular scenery (especially Harper's fight with Pope in the lake). Culminating in an exciting end to the film. A must see for any who have even thought of reading the books.
