Some Interesting Bits at the End Make it Almost Worth Seeing.
27 April 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Long, tedious, and not really worth a look, The Glass Sphinx tells the story of a group of explorers out to find a great treasure buried with a "glass sphinx" in the desert. There's crosses and double crosses and a good many people die. Buts its not all that interesting, and may very well induce a slumber equal to that of the pharaohs.

There are only two things that are of interest in the movie. The first are some plot twists toward the end that seem mostly unexpected, then again I might have nodded off and missed something. The other good thing is the setting which is Egypt itself where the movie was filmed. So long as the film is out of the desert things are interesting simply because its locations that haven't been used over and over again.

I really can't suggest you see it, but if elephants break into your house, tie you up and make you watch it, you won't have too bad a time.
