The mounted charge at the end of the film and some other scenes were directly lifted from the 1987 Australian feature film The Lighthorsemen (1987).See more »
T.E. Lawrence:There's a well at Beersheba called the well of Abraham.
Indiana Jones:Do you think Abraham used it?
T.E. Lawrence:Bible says that he brought his flocks out of the desert and watered them there, which in a way is what you have to do.
Indiana Jones:Only I'm no Abraham, and those soldiers aren't sheep.
T.E. Lawrence:Well some of the generals think they are.

Boys Own Adventures, 17 July 2006
Author: zeppo-2 from United Kingdom

Enjoyable hokum and a throwback to the days of Saturday morning serials at the local cinema. A young hero, evil baddies and a dastardly plot that must be foiled! If you like the old type Boys Own adventures, this will be lots of fun. Just don't expect all the nuances of today's modern film making. This is all action, seat of your pants stuff for almost 80 minutes.

I felt transported back to my youth and can recommend this series of films, some are better than others and others are worse, but they all have a sense of fun.

Also nice to spot all the faces from British television, one actor from long running UK soap, Coronation Street, plays a German World War 1 officer. Quite a change of pace!

A young Catherine Zeta Jones plays a Mati Hari spy before she went on to Hollywood blockbusters and marriage or vice versa....

As young Indy, Sean Patrick Flanery makes an engaging hero and like the rest of the cast in this, looks to be enjoying himself.

Although not big budget, this betrays it's straight to video origins and plays like a good Hollywood blockbuster and I've seen far worse films with much more money spent on them.
