Did You Know?


When Flynn and Nicole are walking through the Amazon Jungle, Flynn says something to Nicole, to which she replies "Be still my heart". ER: Be Still My Heart (2000) was the ER episode (season 6 episode 13) where the character played by Noah Wyle (who plays Flynn in the Librarian) is stabbed and almost dies. See more »


When Flynn climbs out of the river his bag is filled with water. The book was last seen in the bag, yet the book is undamaged by the water. See more »


Flynn Carsen: I just want to get to know the Nicole beneath the surface arrogance. Peel back the layers.
Nicole Noone: What do you think is below the surface arrogance?
Flynn Carsen: More arrogance. And then perhaps a few delicious layers of flaky disdain. All around a creamy sweet center of homicidal rage.

Entertaining Adventure
3 May 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The thirty year old nerd professional college student Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) has twenty-two graduation courses; lives with his mother and has no girlfriend. When his Professor Harris (Mario Ivan Martinez) releases him from his class and asks Flynn to find a job and face the real world, Flynn receives an invitation for an interview in the public library for the position of librarian. He succeeds and is hires, and finds a secret brotherhood that protects Excalibur, Pandora Box and other treasures of mankind. When a magic spear is stolen by the evil Serpent organization, Flynn is assigned to travel to Amazonas to retrieve a hidden part of the magic object. He teams-up and is helped by the sexy bodyguard Nicole No one (Sonya Walger) and together they face dangerous situations chased by the Serpent's agents.

"The Librarian: Quest for the Spear" is an entertaining adventure that follows the non-stop action style of Indiana Jones. The clumsy Flynn is very funny and shows a great chemistry with the athletic and gorgeous Nicole. Now I intend to watch the sequels of this enjoyable story. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Guardião – Em Busca da Lança Sagrada" ("The Guardian – Quest for the Sacred Spear")
