Did You Know?

Goofs:
Factual errors: Ryder makes a comment about the sphinx not being able to catch them at mach 5. Apparently referring to the heroes making an escape in the organization's corporate jet. Mach 3.5 is about the fastest a jet plane has ever traveled. In addition, this would be a military jet, not the private jet pictured shown in the movie.See more »

Poor and unconvincing *1/2 out of *****, 20 December 2009
Author: Celticnationalist from Wales

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 *****
