Good Sharpe film!!! All the usual action and drama set this time in India with LCol Sharpe now on half pay overtly but covertly undertaking a special op for God, King and Country. It was great to have RSM Harper to lend a hand for the festivities as well.

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.

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.
