Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

During the hippo attack, the danger was not exaggerated. According to a number of studies and gathered statistics, hippos kill more humans than any other animal native to Africa. See more »

Goofs

The scroll leading to King Solomon's mines is supposedly 3000+ years old, however Carson uses modern music notes and a five line staff to interpret it. The five line staff and modern music notes (like those shown on the scroll) weren't used until the early Baroque music period (mid 1600s). See more »

9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was extremely excited for the sequel of the Librarian. The first was mesmerizing at times, cheeky at others, but most of all it was good, quality entertainment (when was the last time you could say that about a movie you watched on TNT on a Saturday afternoon?). Noah Wyle has gone from geeky doctor to geeky librarian with the skill and poise of a very capable veteran actor. Unfortunately the entire premise of the sequel, the existence of the fabled King Solomon's mines is just way too preposterous. I'm not sure how we (the viewer) as well as the librarian himself are supposed to believe that these mines of myth actually do exist. I mean, hey, a floating, dancing Excalibur sword with an artificial intelligence... fine, I can accept that, but the existence of Solomon's mines? Insanity. The writers really pushed it this time around.

Nevertheless if you enjoyed this work then I could suggest a few other films of similar ilk and caliber: Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom, On the Waterfront, the Wizard of Oz, and Leprechaun: Back to the Hood. Thank you. btw I read the review by skalynuik and I am appalled...why do people always have to judge others by their appearances?? The hate that you are spreading is the same as racism...judge others and especially other actors by what they do and say and not by how they look. You should be ashamed of yourself skalynuik. Leave your hate at home!!!
