Critic Reviews for The Riddle of the Sands
Perhaps director Tony Maylam was being too literal in adapting the novel to the screen, a novel that didn't translate well.
Well-acted but punishingly long and dull.
Audience Reviews for The Riddle of the Sands
Great movie...suspense & espionage, story, acting and action all superb. Has one of the best sailing scenes ever when the villain uses his yacht to attack the hero's small sailboat during a storm. Takes place in the years before the 1st world war. I never tire of watching it.
