Multi-Award winning Sharpe is one of the most spectacular and successful action-drama movie series ever made. Based on Bernard Cornwells best-selling novels and set in 19th century Spain during the Napoleonic wars, these fast-moving, hard-hitting action adventures bring to the screen all the danger, intrigue and romance of one of the bloodiest periods in the history of warfare. Featuring a fantastic cast including acclaimed actor Sean Bean as Sharpe, the heroic soldier wed all want on our side, each movie will leave you wanting more.
Terrific series. Have watched them from start to finish and each episode is a riveting story. There's only one dud amongst them: "Sharpe's Gold" which doesn't seem to belong in the series, but it's still watchable all the same. Sean Bean is Sharpe - totally believable, a no-nonsense hero, quick witted, honourable and with a touch of mischief. The supporting cast is top notch. If you like period action drama you will not be disappointed. Best of all, the stories don't lose much with repeat screening!

This is one of the best television series ever. Each episode is a great story in itself. The acting is good, the atmosphere seems very realistic. None of the usual bad features of English drama (over-done female lead characters, lack of action or excitement, compulsory bitter endings)
I purchased this collection for m son in law who is a big fan. He is working his way through them. H said I couldn't have bought him a better gift. I myself enjoyed the series and will watch them when he has finished. I could watch them over and over again. The adventures never become boring.
Fishpond got this to me in record time. Great series, highly entertaining and recommended for anyone who likes good old adventure stories. Probably boring for today's microsecond attention-span audiences though. Sharpe's Waterloo is a bit sad for anyone who gets too attached to the main characters.
If you enjoyed any of the Sharpe series when it was shown on TV, or if you are intertesed in Napoleonic Military History, this series has got to be a must. The acting is excellent, from the main chararcter, right through the cameo roles, down to the foot soldiers. The atmosphere is just as you'd expect with the 'scum of the earth' (Wellington's opinion, not mine) in red uniforms led by a group of incompetent fops who had purchased their commissions. The uniforms and weapons are accurate and spectacular. As you would expect from a Rifle Brigade, most of the combat scenes reflect small scale engagements. But when the action moves to major battles these are also well handled. Well worth its price.
