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

When Flynn first sees the map, he says it has strange characters on it, when they are, in fact, hieroglyphics. Since he's got at least one degree in Ancient Egyptology (according to the first movie), shouldn't he have recognized the characters for what they were? See more »
For the Sci-Fi channel The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines is not too bad. It is not a great movie, and could have been much more, but there have been far worse movies both from the Sci-Fi channel and in general. The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines had some lavish sets and photography, some decent action and special effects and a rousing score. Noah Wyle is a likable lead and Jane Curtin and especially Bob Newhart are subtly deadpan. However, Gabrielle Anwar is beautiful but bland and out of place and Erik Avari's villainous role lacks subtlety. Wyle and Anwar's chemistry just isn't there either, while Olympia Dukais is good but severely underused. The script and story are generally weak. The humour in the script comes across as contrived and unfunny with a lot of quite stilted dialogue, and the storytelling is dull and derivative of Indiana Jones except with more predictability and less of the thrills, suspense and fun. The characters are clichéd, that's not a problem but it is if they are not written well or not interesting, and generally while not as problematic as other Sci-Fi films that was the case with The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines. So all in all, not terrible, just not good either. 5/10 Bethany Cox
