Product Description

"The Librarian" tells the story of a repository for humanity’s greatest secrets, all hidden beneath the monolithic New York Metropolitan Library. From the Golden Fleece to the Ark of the Covenant, every enigma and artefact from every known and unknown civilization is protected from the forces of evil who, if given the chance, would use the priceless treasures for their nefarious plans.

Only one man can keep them safe: The Librarian.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Indy 8 Jun 2007
By Nick
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw the second movie return to king solomans mines first but i have to admit after watching Quest For the spear Flynn is the Indiana Jones of the 21st century. from a arkward nerdish start to becoming "The Librarian" this is new hero on the block and a worthy successer to Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones( dare i suggest that Indy V be a Indy and Librarian crossover?). If you liked Indy you will like this too

4.0 out of 5 stars Good film, but this is the shorter version 11 Jun 2007
By Matt Chase VINE VOICE
This a fun TV film produced by Dean Devlin. An action adventure, Indiana Jones style. Be warned though that this is the broadcast 90 minute version. The Region 1 USA DVD contains a longer extended cut of the film by 15 minutes which is much better. The extended cut is better because there's more character interaction and things develop at a better pace. If you have a multiregion player import the USA version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quest for a wet afternoon 14 Jun 2007
By Kulgan
It would be easy to write this off as a cheap Indiana Jones; which on first glance it is. However, for all round family entertainment, it hits all the buttons, full on. Jane Curtain and Bob Newhart are always a joy to watch and Noah Wyle excells. This is a great antidote for those wet Sunday afternoon blues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Indiana-Lite - Great Fun! 14 Mar 2009
By Scots Lass TOP 1000 REVIEWER
For fans of the Indiana Jones, Mummy and National Treasure films, this delightful film introduces us to the world of "The Librarian" - a guardian of all important artefacts whose real job and adventures must remain a secret - especially from his mother!

Noah Wyle (ER) has a great time as the Uber-Geek Flynn who lands the job of a lifetime after receiving the employment equivalent of a 'Golden Ticket'. The action is very much tongue in cheek, the characters fit the expected stereo-types and the action acknowledges this as the story romps along with thrills, spills and laughs for all the family. In one scene, Flynn's elderly ex-Marine boss, deals with upwards of 20 would be killers - who patiently 'wait their turn' to attack in the great tradition of baddies everywhere.....And the evil female and the good girl just have to have it out for the love of the Geek....

Olympia Dukakis has fun as Flynn's match making Mother and Kyle McLaughlin is a hiss-able baddie in this first of the series. One thing, my copy is rated PG rather than 15 as is suggested here. There is certainly nothing in the film unsuitable for young children to watch and enjoy.

Looking forward to seeing the other films and can recommend this series to all fans of comedy adventure drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Librarian (first of trilogy) 17 Jan 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter bought me this for Christmas as I'd seen all three Librarian films on the TV but the first is my favourite. Love Noah Wyle, in this film and dont think they could have picked anyone better for this part. He's not too much of a hero and playing a bit of a geek, is perfect.. Love the fact that the woman is the 'macho' part in this film..
Arrived in plenty of time and am now debating whether to get the third film in this trilogy..:-)

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Helps to be a fan of Noah Wyle. This is all good clean fun with an affectionate wink to the original action films of Indiana Jones. Some good original straplines from the Librarian as well.
Great leading lady character, as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The librarian-Quest for the spear
A common film plot, geeky nerd helped by amazon female saves the world. But done with style and humour to make very entertaining. A couple hours enjoyable escapism.
