Noah Wyle is charming as Flynn, a professional student turned reluctant hero when he finds himself named The Librarian, and is charged with guarding a number of priceless artifacts he previously thought were only the stuff of myth. Flynn's race to recover the stolen section of the Spear of Destiny and prevent the Brotherhood of the Serpent from finding the remaining sections is Indiana-Jones-esque action and adventure at its light-hearted best.

Jane Curtin and Bob Newhart display their usual dry wit, with Newhart's scene with the bad guys near the end of the movie alone worth watching the movie for. Olympia Dukakis plays Flynn's mother, who wishes her boy would just find a good woman and settle down.

This is entertaining fare, a nice mix of action, adventure, brain teases and yes, a bit of romance. It isn't a big-budget Raiders of the Lost Ark production, but for a made-for-TV movie it does a fine job, and holds up on repeat viewing.

So, this movie wasn't Indiana Jones. So what? What is? They did they best they could with a limited budget. So it had factual errors? So did Indiana Jones, so did the Mummy, so did National Treasure and Sahara. Does that make them less enjoyable movies? Not to me. So, give this movie a chance before you bash it.

This movie was superbly cast, given the TV movie budget. Noah Wylie was the geeky and goofy, but kinda cute, intellectual Flynn Carson, who finds himself in his thirties, living with his mother, while having amassed 22 degrees (is that even possible?) and is no longer welcome in school. He's told to get a job (and a life) and is thrust into the real world. His well-meaning mother (Olympia Dukakis) is constantly trying to fix him up, in the mean time. So, here is Flynn, a genius with 22 degrees, and he doesn't have employers beating down his door with jobs? I took a star off for that being really inplausible.

Flynn finds an invitation to interview with the Metropolitan Libary. After waiting a whole day in line, he goes into an interview with cranky Jane Curtain, humorless director of library, although she was actually pretty funny. In a funny sequence, he deducts, with Sherlock Holmes logic, that she's recently divorced and had three different cats. Surprise, he meets a Judson, the senior librarian (Bob Newhart). They take him on a magical tour of the portion of the library that few people know about; it's stocked with antiquities that the rest of the world doesn't (or shouldn't) know about: the REAL Mona Lisa, the Holy Grail, unicorns, the golden goose, the arc of the covenant, pandora's box, among other things. The Librarians are keepers of these great treasures. And it's the Librarian's job to keep them secret from the public.

Yes, the DVD is from Korea. The cover, title, credits, etc., are all in Korean. The movie plays just fine in my made-for-America DVD player and television.

The movie itself is just a lot of fun! It follows the adventures of a "professional college student" who finally gets turned loose by the school and has to find a job. He finds a position that requires his unique mix of talents (or did the position find him?) and finds himself in a series of dangerous situations, deadly threats, and close calls. The movie is, above all, fun.

I watched it with my teen-aged daughter and we both had a blast!

I also bought the second and third movies in the series. I think it's a shame that the powers-that-be make it so difficult to get a movie of this quality and appeal. There's no real reason this title couldn't be available in American packaging and at a price that's more consistent with the other two movies in the series.

I though that, this movie had the best action scenes with just enough quirky humor in it to keep you laughing. The movie was well done and does have a original ideas to it but throw in some of the old movies with that and it came out great. There are great one-liners in the movie that keep you remembering it time after time.

I would suggest that you get this movie you wont be disappointed if you are looking for a good laugh!

I received this movie and at first thought it was going to be in Korean with subtitles. It was not! It is great to have the whole set now. I would order from these people again.

Even though this DVD was made for the Korean market it works just fine on a US DVD player and is in English.

Noah Wylie is a young man with 22 degrees and is being forced into the real world. He then received an invitation to interview at the Metropolitan Library. Hidden in the depths of the library is the true Library. Here as stored all the great knowledge and powerful artifact of the ages. It has been locked away for millennia. Wylie is offered the position of Librarian and he would be in charge of the collection. But no sooner does he start than the Library's defenses are pierced and a piece of the Spear of Destiny has been stolen.

Wylie must go in the field and retrieve the remaining pieces and rescue the stolen one before its power can be used for evil. Lots of action and silliness follow as Wylie tries to fulfill his job and his destiny. Add an excellent supporting cast of Bob Newhart, Jane Curtin and Olympia Dukakis really help keep this show entertaining and fun.

But fun or not, this movie bears resemblance to Armageddon, the fun action picture that didn't make a lick of sense. First we have Wylie have to find the remaining pieces of the spear instead of just rescuing the stolen one. By finding the others, they just become vulnerable. One an international flight the cockpit is open to visitors (there is an air marshal so we know the time frame). A door on the plane is opened at cruising altitude and it doesn't depressurize (in fact passengers are shown to be completely unaware). Cell phones apparently can work deep in the Amazon where there are no cell towers. There is a Mayan pyramid a hundred times larger than anything they build and so tall it would have been seen from anywhere in the amazon. The name of god has been lost for 4,000 years (and not just from the second destruction of the Great Temple in 70 AD).
