Sharpe's Rifles- brilliantBy a customer from CUMBRIA , 04 Apr 2006Sean Bean stars in this epic screen offering of Bernard Cornwell's novel.
I found this dvd just as enjoyable as the first time I saw it on T.V,as always its not an easy task to transfer a novel to the screen but Sean Bean was the best choice for the character portrayal of Richard Sharpe.
GreatBy a customer from Dunbar, Scotland , 31 Mar 2006A great DVD of Sharpe's films. Good and exciting
Gets better after every viewing!By Dan Gibbins from Norfolk , 08 Mar 2006Likening this series to 'vegetable viewing' is, quite frankly, unfair. The complete collection of Sharpe's adventures stands as one of the best drama series from the 1990's. I would recommend this to just about anyone - the plot is fast paced, the characters gell very well together and they always leaving you wanting more.
Sharpe's Rifles introduces us to the rougish Richard Sharpe, newly promoted to the officer's ranks. Having to deal with his newly promoted status, Sharpe dishes out his usual charm and scathing verbal attacks on all an sundry.
If you haven't had chance to watch any of the Sharpe series, give these two episodes a go: Sharpe's Riles and Sharpe's Eagle, you won't be disappointed.
Vegetable viewingBy Robert Jones from Bridlington , 31 Jan 2006I call all of Sharpe's films Vegetable viewing, because after a hard day, you can sit with a big bag of crisps and sit on the couch like a dribbling vegetable and you'll still get the plot.
You have to admire the attention to detail on the uniforms and the soundtrack. All the films in the Sharpe saga are identical : Sharpe has a scrap, gets the better of a pompous officer and gets to have his way with some woman or other.
Sean Bean's acting is farcical. ('naah then 'agman, sing us a song... 'arris, read us a booooook'. ) Wife and daughter fancy the pants of him so think he's fabulous, but he cracks me up.
So, you ask, why have I rented every one in the series and spent 20 hours or so as a dribbling vegetable? Maybe for the same reason people watch Eastenders day after day then wonder why..

Napoleonic war actionBy a customer from UK , 20 Jan 2006This serialisation of the Bernard Cromwells books is a good history/action/romance affair simple and good fun. This instalment features Sharpe battling for an imperial eagle unfortunately for Sharpe theres a lot of French between him and it. If you like this type of dramatisation then I can recommend the Hornblower series and if you want to challenge your eyes read Death to the French (C.S Forester) another tale of the peace loving French in Spain.
