From Amazon.co.uk

Based on the novels by Bernard Cornwell, Sharpe (1993-7) ran to 14 full-length television films that follow the adventures of the titular soldier through the later years of the Napoleonic Wars. The programmes are an outstanding achievement for the small screen, dominated by Sean Bean's central performance as the heroic, troubled outsider who turns out to be a resourceful and loyal leader. Bolstered by a strong supporting cast, particularly Daragh O'Malley as Harper and (in later episodes) Abigail Cruttenden as Jane, Sharpe is often visually striking, the action tense and gripping. Consistency is maintained by all 14 episodes being directed by Tom Clegg.

On the DVD: Sharpe's sound is full-bodied stereo while the very "sharp" picture has been transferred slightly letterboxed at 14:9. Though looking much better than the original TV transmissions the occasionally cropped framing makes it apparent the films were shot in 16:9 widescreen, so it is regrettable they have not been transferred to DVD in that format. Otherwise these are first-rate releases. --Gary S Dalkin

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing Richard Sharpe 31 Aug 2002
By A Customer
In Sharpe's Rifles you get to meet our hero for the first time. Although there is a certain amount of scene setting there is no lack of action - his approach to combat makes James Bond look like a pussy cat - not only does he have to contend with the French but with the attitude of the other Officers who have bought the rank they now fill. With the help of the Spanish partisan leader he learns how to get the most out of his men and overcome the initial resentment they have for an officer "raised from the ranks".
In Sharpe's Eagle he is called upon to restore the honour of the regiment after the colours are lost in battle, just to add to the task he has to do it with a bunch of raw recruits and, of course, some none too able officers. The battle scenes are realistic, providing an insight into what it would have been like to be there and not over the top in the way that some modern films are.
All in all some good old fashioned action with goodies and badies easy to watchand enjoyable from start to end.
