Customer Reviews

This collection is brilliantly acted and beautifully portrayed.
Smart Reader
Sharpe gets to do not one, but two sword duels, so that he has some nice action moments to go along with the strong dramatic moments between the characters.
Amazon Customer
This whole bit with the Aztecs... well just let's leave it as a very low point in this otherwise great collection.

One of my favorite Sharpe books and definitely one of the better adaptations, even though the action is transferred from Salamanca to the ficitious(?) Villafranca and the romantic subplot involving a novice nun is best forgotten. Sharpe is assigned the task of tracking down Colonel Leroux, who is after Wellington's chief spy, El Mirador - a task complicated by the fact that Sharpe isn't even told who El Mirador is. Sharpe must also contend with an old enemy returned and a traitor to be uncovered, even as he is gravely wounded during the assault on Villafranca, and hovers between life and death...
Sharpe's Sword is great from beginning to end - never skipping a beat, even if there is that annoying nun in the background. Sharpe, Harper and the rest of the supporting cast are in fine form, and a top-notch set of guest stars including Jack Spears, Father Curtis and Colonel Berkeley round it off. Leroux is suitably slimy and deadly, and the climatic sword fight one of the more brutal I've seen in the series. All this, and Sir Henry Simmerson (from Sharpe's Company) too. And of course, Harper dipping into grail lore by forging Sharpe a new sword out of loyalty and love. A must-watch.

Format: DVD
In "Sharpe's Sword," it is still 1813 on the Franco-Spanish frontier and the French army is now in full retreat from Spain. But Napoleon is planning a surprise counter-attack and to make it work he has to flush out and capture Napoleon's master spy, El Mirador. Of course, Major Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean) is in the middle of the intrigue, although for a large part of the story he is sidelined by a severe wound. There is a battle sequence at the end of this one, as the British take another French fort, but this one is much more of a character drama, where all of the subplots pretty much come together in the end.

Major Munro (Hugh Ross) knows the identity of El Mirador, but he is not about to tell Sharpe. Napoleon has dispatched Colonel Leroux (Patrick Fierry) to find and kill El Mirador, but he is captured by the British. Pretending to be a mere captain Leroux is given his parole, and none of his superior officers will listen to Sharpe who sees through the pretense and tries to avoid the inevitable tragedy that will result from this stupid mistake. Sharpe also comes across a frightened lass (Emily Mortimer), who will not speak, and evidence of a code book that suggests there is a traitor among the English.

Meanwhile, Sgt. Harper (Daragh O'Malley) and Ramona (Diana Perez) are having fighting because he is not sure about bringing a Spanish woman and an illegitimate baby back to Ireland when the war is over. Sharpe and everybody else thinks the two should get married, but Patrick does not see the sense of it. Then we find out that Sir Henry Simmerson (Michael Cochrane), the oaf who was Sharpe's commanding officer in "Sharpe's Eagle" and who once lost one of the King's flags, is back to cause more trouble as he takes an interest in the lass.

This series is amazing! A must for any true fan of Sean Bean. If you loved his portrayal of Boromir in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, be prepared for more daring-do and fantastic sword play! This series is set in Napoleonic times, and Bean plays a soldier in the British army. He's definitely earned his heartthrob status in the role of Richard Sharpe. But the secondary characters are nothing to scoff at, either. A great cast and a killer storyline, romance, betrayal, spies, intrigue and a few of the odd comical elements combine to produce a feature length episode you'll have to own. For history buffs, Bean fans, LOTR fans, or anyone interested in a marvelous storyline.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This five-disc set is the second of the three sets of DVDs portraying the adventures of Richard Sharpe, containing the episodes "Gold," "Battle," "Sword," "Regiment," and "Siege." Set during the Napoleonic Wars, they tell of the adventures of Richard Sharpe, an Englishman who was born the illegitimate son of a prostitute, orphaned at the age of three, survived a Dickensian childhood, and through an act of near-suicidal bravery, became an officer. As every one of Sharpe's promotions are based on courage and merit, rather than money and birth, this does not make him popular. This collection shows Sharpe hitting his stride as an officer. The first episode, "Gold," is possibly the weakest of the series because of its B-movie plot, but the characterization makes up for it. The scene in which Sharpe punches out the provost makes this episode worth watching on that basis alone. Neither "Gold" nor "Battle" have much in common with the Cornwell books from which their titles and some characters are taken, but every episode in this collection is beautifully acted, there is plenty of adventure, and Sharpe's characteristic gallantry towards women is well portrayed. "Sword" is a must-see for hurt/comfort fans. "Regiment" not only portrays what life was like in the British Army of Sharpe's day, it is excellent at demonstrating what goes around, comes around. "Regiment" is nearly unique in that a woman, Lady Anne, comes to Sharpe's rescue rather than being rescued by him. It is also the episode that has the most in common with the Cornwell book from which it is derived. "Siege" is a typical Sharpe episode in which Sharpe overcomes great odds and completes his mission in spite of his coevals, rather than because of them, but that does not make it predictable. This collection is brilliantly acted and beautifully portrayed. Every Sharpe fan should own it.
