Pleasant, but lacking something.,
This review is from: Sharpe's Challenge [DVD] (DVD)
An acceptable addition to the other titles. Cleverly contrived using the Cornwell books set in India before the Iberian campaign and Waterloo, allowing the film to cash in on the camaraderie between Shapre and Patrick again. An enjoyable story, but not quite up to the high standards set by the originals.
The DVD though seems very rushed - why does it suddenly break and show what is coming in "next time". I bought the DVD to watch it - I don't need teaser trailers half way through, and there seems no way of switching this annoying feature off. Surely 20 minutes more editing could have produced a much slicker programme for those of us that actually felt the urge to part with cash for this?
Overall an adequate addition to the Sharpe series.
