After retrieving the Crystal Skull in Utah, Flynn Carsen receives a map in the mail with the secret location of King Solomon's Mines. When the scroll is stolen, Judson explains the power of the Key of Solomon's book and assigns Flynn to retrieve the map. The map is useless without the legend piece to decipher it, which is located in Volubilis near the Roman ruins in Morocco. Flynn heads to Casablanca to the ruins where he is chased by a group of mercenaries leaded by General Samir. They too want to find the location of King Solomon's mines. Flynn teams-up with Professor Emily Davenport working in the dig and they escape from General Samir and his men. While traveling to Gedi, they save the local Jomo from death and the trio faces a dangerous journey through the wild Africa.Written by

Factual error: A character states that the drive time from Casablanca, Morocco to Gedi, Kenya is five and a half hours. The actual timel needed to drive the 9.668 kilometers is 143 hours. See more »
In the first scene of "The Librarian - Quest for the Spear" (at the recreation of the pyramid), Flynn states that he has 22 degrees; his professor states that the degree he was currently working on was signed off. This now makes a total of 23 degrees. Flynn states at least twice in "Return to King Solomon's Mines" that he has 22 degrees. In addition, Emily states early in the film that she has 25 degrees and is beginning work on her 26th in June; at the end of the film, Flynn says that she has 25 PhDs. See more »
What fun! Noah Wyle strikes gold as the intrepid explorer/adventurer Flynn. I had been waiting for a sequel since the first one some years back. And I couldn't have been happier with the results.
Aside from the brilliant production it is the writing that shines here. Well-thought out plot line with all the magic and silliness this kind of entertainment demands. Everything was in its place and geared up to thrill you.
Having dispensed with the background of how Flynn becomes the iconic librarian, this second chapter hits the deck running from the get go, never stopping to catch its breath.
The twists on Solomon's story were creative and exciting. The romance like a hundred other ones yet -- surprisingly fresh because of the chemistry between Noah Wyle and Gabrielle Antwar. Fire!
Bob Newhart is just a giant in subtle comedy. His character is certainly mysterious and full of dead pan remarks. What fun!! Always nice to see Jane Curtain, and of course Olympis Dukakis. But in the supporting cast it was Mehboob Bawa and Robert Foxworth who stole the thunder. Can't tell you why. See it.
Just see it! No heavy violence. No crude toilet humor. Just adventure and very likable performances.
Mr. Wyle, you were producer, can we have more, please.
