4.0 out of 5 stars Sharpe's Eagle, great entertainment, Feb. 29 2012
This review is from: Sharpe's Set One: Eagle (DVD)
This movie / part one of the series / is good historical fiction. The main character and his men are fictional, but the players around them and the events they move through were real. This gives an idea of what it would have been like to be a soldier during the Napoleonic years. It gives you a good idea of the weapons and tactics. The movie shows a more realistic picture of a soldier than that of much television, no clean perfect uniforms here, the uniforms are worn, repaired, dirty as are the men. It shows the attitudes of officers and men fairly well also.

The only drawback to this series is the budget. It's hard to show a battle that had 8 - 10,000 men in it on a reasonable budget, so some imagination is needed to turn the men you see into larger units, they use about a company of men to represent a regiment, and they really don't try to show batallions.

If you can treat this as a representation of near history (with reduced numbers) then it is a full 5 stars.
