4.0 out of 5 stars Sharpe's Challenge - review, 25 April 2006
By 
This review is from: Sharpe's Challenge [DVD] (DVD)
Retired colonel Richard Sharpe (Sean Bean) is requested by Wellington (Hugh Fraser) to travel to India in order to put a stop to a rebellion there. He is only persuaded, when he hears that his best friend, Patrick Harper (Daragh O'Malley) has disappeared there some time ago. On arrival, Sharpe meets his old nemesis, now General Simmerson (Michael Cochrane). When General Burroughs (commanding officer) daughter is captured by the rebels, Sharpe and Harper must embark on a dangerous mission, where things do not go entirely to plan.

A true 'Sharpe classic', full of all the components that made the original series so good. Nice to see a lot of the old cast members back, and Toby Stephens puts in a great performance as William Dodd (renegade British officer now fighting for the rebels). A bigger budget than previous films means that the battle sequences are even better than before, and the whole film is fast-moving, and tense. Overall, an excellent production.
