The map shows "Alexandria, Egypt" just before the team arrives at the Great Sphinx. They have just left Alexandria (where they were searching for the Lighthouse). The Great Sphinx is located in Giza, Egypt, not Alexandria. In all other cases, the map shows where they are arriving, not where they've left. See more »

Poor and unconvincing *1/2 out of *****
20 December 2009 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

Riddles of the Sphinx (2008) which I saw on the UK Sci-Fi Channel Today out of boredom more than anything, is clearly a homage (Rip-off) of Indiana Jones, Right down to the Main Character's job as a College Professor and his choice of clothes complete with Indiana Jones style Hat..

The biggest problems with this is the dire acting and totally unconvincing performance by the lead actor

The budget is VERY low as most of the 'action' in filmed in front of not-very anonymous Backscreen...as The Filming ALL took place in Canada and There are only 4 characters in the entire Film...So the 'Double Agent' is obvious from the get go...

I'm a big fan of these types of Adventures, but this badly needed more money spent...and as a result my rating is low.

*1/2 out of *****
