Sadly not the full length film (which is not available at all on Blu-ray), it's still nice to have this to go with the previous 14 films.

Format: DVD
Since first seeing Sean Bean in TV reruns in 1999 in the role of Richard Sharpe, the lowly soldier who is given a field commission by Wellington for saving his life, I have been a devoted fan. Subsequently, I bought the whole series on VHS, some of the Sharpe novels & even several volumes of Napier's War in the Peninsula so I could better follow the action and Sharpe's character as he rises through the ranks.

Naturally, I was quite excited when a new episode, Sharpe's Challenge, appeared on DVD. It is based on 3 novels, which chronologically were set before the Peninsular (ie Napoleonic) War but the script has been re-worked so that it is set after the Wars, mainly I guess so that the aging - but still handsome - Sean Bean does not have to play a twenty-year old.

The film has everything going for it - colourful locations in India, battles, skirmishes, elephants, explosions, old friends Patrick Harper & Romona, the Duke of Wellington, beautiful young women, dastardly villains, even Sharpe's old bete noire, the ridiculous Col. Simmerson. I give the producers 3 stars for effort.

And yet -- something is missing. Like so many hit productions, it has become a victim of its own success. It is all spectacle and no heart. I could not get emotionally involved in this film as I had in the earlier Sharpe series. It was - dare I say it - boring.

Nevertheless, the film is a must-have for all Sharpe fans, who I am sure will want to judge for themselves.

For myself, I think it's time Sharpe hung up his tunic, once and for all.

This movie fits in perfectly with the rest of the series. It has the same feel and dynamics, and Sharpe and Harper are back together just as we remember them. Fans will enjoy it immensely. The DVD has a very good "behind the scenes" feature.
(PS: The book "Sharpe's Christmas" has a story about Sharpe's life in the time just before this movie's adventure.)
