Trivia

The Excalibur prop used in the movie bears the mark of collectible/film replica swordmaker Marto of Toledo, Spain, visible in close-up as Flynn draws Excalibur from the stone near the end of the film. See more »

Goofs

Airplane doors are conical in shape with the bigger frame on the inside. Thus the door will be sealed against the side of the fuselage by the pressure inside the plane. To open it you must first pull it inwards and then out which can only be done when the air pressures are equal on both sides of the door. You cannot blast it out of the frame the way Nicole does just before she and Flynn leaves the airplane. See more »

Good, light-hearted movie
5 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

The Librarian: Quest for the Spear is a film that doesn't take itself too seriously. Though having a few minor errors in the proper names in legends, and having a protagonist that knows more and can put things together better than anyone ever really could, this movie is a very entertaining look at a work where every legend and fantasical story is completely true.

The basic concept is that Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) is a 30 something professional student with upwards of 27 advanced degrees. After his Egyptology professor graduates him early to force him into getting out of school and into the real world, he gets a job as the Librarian for the Metopolitan Public Library. Immediately after his interview he finds out that the Library that he is to be in charge of contains such wonderous treasures as the Ark of the Covenant, Pandora's Box, and the Golden Goose, as well as a fragment of the Spear of Destiny. Shortly after starting his new job the fragment is stolen by the nefarious Serpent Brotherhood. Flynn is sent to recover all of the pieces of the Spear with the help of Nicole No one.

While fairly predictable in resolution, this film offers light hearted romp though an interesting view on a more or less obscure legendary artifact.
