Quotes

[Shellington has passed out from seeing the dead bodies]
Ross: What are we going to do with him, Sharpe?
Sharpe: Send him home, sir.
Ross: Home? He'll need an escort.
Sharpe: Send two of Brand's men back with him. They know the terrain. Gives us a perfect excuse for bringing Brand back.
Ross: What if he doesn't want to go back to Wellington's camp?
Sharpe: Oh, he'll want to, sir.
Shellington: [coming around] Where am I?
Sharpe: [to Ross] Might even try to seduce my wife.

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.
