The Librarian 2 Return to King Solomon's Mines movie review

Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) is The Librarian -- entrusted with a museum of artifacts to guard, odd bits and pieces famed in tall tales and true. In this, the second Librarian tale, he has a new partner and a new quest -- to find King Solomon's Mines.

Be safe. Don't get killed. Save your receipts.

In the first episode, Carsen the habitual student and bookworm becomes Carsen the adventurer. Now the adventuring continues, despite the original's embarrassing acting and mortifying sets and special effects.

Veteran actor and Star Trek director Frakes takes the helm this time, with a considerably better budget it would appear.

New Continent. New Adventure. Still No Clue.

You'd be surprised what you can learn at the library.

An escapist adventure without much humour or any real originality. Mostly harmless.
