"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.

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

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.

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.

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.

I always had intended to watch the Librarian movies that TNT made and aired last decade. I’d missed them when they were on TV, and somehow never got around to tracking them down after that. But with the TV series starting up, they aired all those movies, so I was finally able to go back and watch them. I started with The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, which I enjoyed.

Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) is a professional student who is shocked and upset one day to learn that he is being kicked completely out of college for at least six months. Going home to his room, in the house he shares with his mother (Olympia Dukakis), he finally gets the wakeup call that he needs to go out and do something with his life. When he is asked to come in for an interview at the library, he thinks he’s found his job.

Only when he gets the job, he realizes that it is not about guarding books. He’s actually working of an organization that tries to keep the supposedly powerful objects of the world safe and hidden. That first night Judson (Bob Newhart), his new boss, is attacked and a third of a spear is stolen. Now Flynn must use research to go into the Amazon and find the next piece before the villains get the entire thing and the power that goes with it.

Watching it, I couldn’t help but compare this to Indiana Jones. I mean, the quest for the mythical objects is a bit obvious, right? There are plenty of superficial elements that are different, but for the most part, it is true.

But you know what? I didn’t care. I was having fun following Flynn as he finally gets some real world experiences. Granted, most of us don’t have our lives threatened multiple times our first week on a new job, but this is a movie, right?

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..:-)

This is number 1 in the Librarian trilogy, staring Noah Wyle. Getting it in North America (ie amazon.ca or .com) costs a lot! But I got it from amazon.co.up for $7.41, and that included shipping! Good movie, & great cost! (The format is in PAL, but I have a player for that, so that was no problem for me.)

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.
