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.

A great series. Sean Bean is an amazing actor and never fails to deliver. Some scenes where a major battle is displayed, the lack of extras in the scene does not convey the size of the real battle. Other than this a great series.

This has was always one of my favourite shows and I was waiting for a long time to get it. Sean Bean's portrayal of a man rising through ranks from a simple soldier can never disappoint.
