Sharpe's Company Reviews

I've been working my way through the TV adaptations of Cornwell's Sharpe novels, with Sharpe's Company being the third of those adaptations.

This is the one that takes place during the siege of Badajoz, and introduces Sharpe's old nemesis Hakeswill (from his pre-peninsular days), as well as revealing he now has a child. Of necessity taking liberties with the plot of the book, this still manages to remain pretty faithful throughout.

Sean Bean can command.

Ahh, here we go, the former Captain Sharpe, now dropped to Lieutenant, and his fellow rag-tags of the Chosen Men, no longer including Tongue, but consisting of Sergeant Harper, Hagman, Cooper, Harris and Perkins, the Company of the title. But more interesting was the debut of the wonderful Pete Postlethwaite, appearing as the evil Obadiah Hakeswill, who terrorizes everyone who crosses him. This was a good episode as it showed the loyalty now developed between Sharpe and his men, but also offered a consistent villain. Teresa again appeared, now in her third appearance and a new mother, Richard having a daughter called Antonia. This was really good as it gave him a different inspiration to just his promotions.

It was unfortunate that Brian Cox as Major Hogan and also David Troughton as Sir Athur Wellesy couldn‚(TM)t return, as they were both brilliant in their roles, but the overall film was still just as good.

Sgt. Hakeswill's madness nearly stole the focus of the story from Sharpe, but thankfully he arrived to save the day, his wife and his daughter.

Dette er absolutt ein film-serie etter min smak. Historisk. Tidleg 1800. Krig og ære.

It's hard not to love Sharpe and his men - even if the stories sometimes is ridiculous. :D
