Editorial Reviews

"Compelling viewing for adventure lovers." - The Daily Mail

Acclaimed actor Sean Bean (The Island, The Lord of the Rings) stars in this action-packed series set in the midst of the desperate missions and battles of the Napoleonic Wars. Adapted from Bernard Cornwell's bestselling novels, Bean portrays maverick British officer Richard Sharpe who rises through the ranks of Wellington's army by his own daring deeds and ambition. Fast-moving, hard-hitting adventure, Sharpe brings to the screen all the danger, romance and sheer spectacle of one of the bloodiest periods in English warfare.

Includes: Sharpe's Rifles / Sharpe's Eagle / Sharpe's Company / Sharpe's Enemy / Sharpe's Honour approx. 8 hrs. col.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon: Get a new supplier for this March 10, 2010
Format:DVD
I just bought the complete collection at Sams Club for 5 x $24.88. Five, three-disk sets that include all 14 episodes and the finale special. I had this on my wish list since I saw part of the series on A&E on cable and am delighted to have the full set now. Please make this available to Amazon customers at a more affordable price, less than half the price of your listing for the full set.

3.0 out of 5 stars Picture Quality lost during PAL to NTSC transfer February 1, 2009
Format:DVD
My wife and I are Sharpe fans. Collected (and read) all the books so we decided to buy all the DVDs based on the reviews (many 5 stars).

I was extremely disappointed with the picture quality. I have an upconverting DVD player with Faroudja chipset and a PS3 with great upconverting capabilities. All my other DVDs look good (especially my superbit collections) but this looks terrible. It's almost as if the entire series was shot in very soft focus because it appears grainy and the upconverting doesn't work well with it.

Another thing I was slightly disappointed with was the DVDs plots/action do not really follow the books very well. Obviously it would be difficult to portray everything from the books but I felt that the writers could have included more.

For $240 (all 3 5 disk boxes) I feel a bit cheated due to the quality of the picture and sound but we are enjoying them very much (sometimes it's hard to get used to the picture but the series does a decent job of drawing one in) so I'd probably buy again. Hence the 3 star review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live Major Sharpe! March 26, 2007
Format:DVD
I enjoyed the Sharpe series as shown on PBS a few years ago on their "Masterpiece Theatre", but they only televised 4 episodes. Until recently, I hadn't realized how many episodes of "Sharpe" there were, but I was unable to afford the entire collection at USA prices. I went shopping in the UK, and discovered they had a complete collection at a fraction of the cost, and since I had purchased a region free DVD player, I knew I could buy the set from Amazon UK and enjoy the whole Sharpe saga.

The entire cast is magnificent! The amount of sword play, battle scenes, rugged terrain must have meant many hard filming days and nights, and an awesome stunt crew. The costumes as far as I can tell are spot on. Familiar faces appear in many episodes. Pete Postlethwaite as Obadiah Hakeswill is sooo evil. Daragh O'Malley is perfect as Harper. John Tams (who also wrote the music), Jason Salkey, Michael Mears & Lyndon Davies as the Chosen Men. Assumpta Serna, Elizabeth Hurley, Alice Krige, and others, all excellent!

Sticklers for historical accuracy may not enjoy the series. I on the other hand had a fabulous time watching them. And I am positive you will also!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharpes Rifles Set January 4, 2007
By Harry L
Format:DVD
I became a recent fan of the book series and am working my way through them as I find the next in line in my local bookstores. I purchased the DVD set fully expecting to be dissapointed as it was hard to imagine how the many battle scenes described in such graphic detail in the books could be succesfully depicted with what I'm sure was a limited BBC budget. Having now viewed all of the DVD's in this collection, and now part way through the subsequent 'Sword' set, I am far from dissapointed. The episodes are exceptionally well made and when based on a book manage to retain a remarkable amount of details from the written version. The lack of massed armies on battlefields is very skillfully handled by the producers and very rarely is there any feeling of watching a budget movie, which is what the episiodes essentially are. In fact in many respects I find the scaled down action sequences to be a positive aspect as they can get a little tiresome in the books. The acting is terrific from the entire caste, with some of the minor charactors often stealing the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss it, great! January 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great series, This a story about a common english soldier who rose from the ranks who was not treated as a real officer, one who did not buy his commisson. I couldn't stop watching it, I have bought all of the Sharpe series, this one shown here is not as complete as buying the sets. This part was made for Sean Bean, I wish there would be a finale as to his daughter. Assumpta Serna was terrific also as well as Daragh O'Mally and all the fine actors " The Chosen Men" all well cast in their parts. War, some humor, love and the trust of his men. I enjoyed the history. I seldom like movies with war but this is a series not to miss. Sean Bean also starred in "Game of Thrones" season one on HBO. You're better off buying the sets such as those listed below, more programs on these. Also the last two are Sharpe's Peril and Sharpe's challege sold individually at present. Tho some reviews say the history has its errors,as well as USA series. I didn't mind, I loved the entire series.

Are these Sharpe sets digitally remastered or widescreened?
Does this product (Sharpe's series) have CC or Subtitles or SHD?

Closed Captioning on Sharpe's series
I thought all DVDs were " CC ", I feel cheated even though the show looked very promising , I won't buy any more.
