Goofs

The Sphinx, at minimum was always described or pictured as having the head of a human, the body (or haunches) of a lion, and the wings of a great bird; usually with a serpent for a tail. The Egyptian sphinxes were drawn or carved with the face of a man and were characterized as benevolent guardians. The Greek sphinx was pictured as having the face of a woman and characterized as malevolent, treacherous and merciless. See more »

Typical Sci-fi Channel crap.
28 September 2008 | by JaredCSMSee all my reviews

No surprise - about what you would expect from a third rate network. The budget was probably whatever the limit on the producer's credit card was. All of the typical clichés for a poorly written / directed / acted project that looks like it was done by a bunch of film students over a weekend in Vancouver. (Yeah, we noticed that Egypt, Greece, and Iraq all look a lot like British Columbia in the fall, cough, cough)

The only real surprise is that someone with the talent of Dina Meyer would agree to participate in this kind of garbage. Yeah she looked great, but come on, put any physically fit 40 year old actress in an outfit inspired by Laura Croft and they will too. Need the work that badly eh - what a shame.

A big waste of time and pretty sad considering how many other potentially decent projects didn't get bankrolled so this waste of film could.
