Sharpe's Enemy

Sharpe's Enemy ★★★★

Liked this one a lot, maybe my favourite so far. A touch bleaker, and the stakes felt much higher despite it being more of a personal story. Good action setpieces and stellar choreography. TV budget really shows at a couple points (as it always has), but they worked well with what they had.

Also, pretty great cast. Particularly liked the young French officer and his wife. Nairn doesn't hold a candle to Brian Cox's Hogan from Sharpe I and II, but he's certainly more than passable. Cracking performance from the new Wellington actor - I wasn't sure about him in Sharpe's Company, but he's a right good bastid after all.
