Product Description

Sharpe's Peril (BBC/2008/BD)

The rollicking Sharpe's adventures, based on the wildly popular British books by Bernard Cornwell, continue in fine form, with the splendid Sean Bean once again appearing as the buccaneering Richard Sharpe, in Sharpe's Peril. Fans of epic adventures, British history, and even the cheeky heroics of James Bond will enjoy the panoramic historical sweep of Sharpe's Peril, and the weary knowingness in the performance of Bean, a quick-witted leader of the King's Army under the most dire of circumstances, yet also a ladies' man who seems to have no problem finding romance in the roughest of war zones. Sharpe's Peril follows our good Colonel Sharpe as he has finished his tour of duty in 19th-century India, as the British Empire is on the rise. But just as he thinks he's en route back to England, circumstances draw him into one last, ferocious battle--against an Indian warlord, with might and terror on his side. As Sharpe fashions a makeshift army from unlikely, unprepared fellow travelers, the adventure unspools at a furious pace. Bean, whose ruggedly handsome face is now synonymous with the colonial titan Sharpe, manages to play nuance in his face, showing that Sharpe is growing battle-weary, yet is unable, or unwilling, to resist one last challenge. Though Sharpe's Peril, like all the Sharpe's series, was shot for BBC TV, the production has spared no expense, and the experience is like watching a splendid film--with vast vistas of rugged landscape showing the wilds of 19th-century India, grand costumes, elephants, and battle adventures galore. And Sharpe still has a way with the ladies--multiple subplots allow for Sharpe to have his head turned--and face slapped--by all manner of lovely English noblewomen (including Marie-Angelique Bonnet, played by the comely American-born actress Beatrice Rosen) in the farthest outposts of colonial India. With the sweep of American Westerns and David Lean epics, and the cheeky heroics of the Bond films, Sharpe's Peril is a rip-roaring adventure. --A.T. Hurley

While Bernard Cornwell's books are truly fabulous stories and great reads, the film does a great job of transferring his incredible characters through terrific actors. Understanding some of the realities of filming costs, hats off and over-the-hills to these Sharpe productions for promoting a realistic sense of history and, in this case, the magnificance of India.

The originals were much better. Plot was not as good as expected. Rather far fetched considering the time gaps and turns that we're not really believable. Seemed to have been shot only to take advantage of the success of the previous series.

Sharpe's Peril was a excellent movie but it was not in line with the books. Sean Bean always puts on a great show.
