Hidden beneath the monolithic New York Metropolitan Library is a repository for humanity’s greatest secrets. From the Golden Fleece to the Ark of the Covenant, every enigma and artefact from every known and unknown civilisation is protected from the forces of evil who, given the chance, would use the priceless treasures for their nefarious plans. Only one man can keep them safe: The Librarian.
Having spent his life ensconced within the cloisters of academia, uber geek Flynn (Noah Wyle, ER) finally finds a use for his encyclopaedic knowledge of the obscure and esoteric when he's selected to join the mysterious order of Librarians. But this is no quiet desk job; on his very first day, The Serpent Brotherhood steal a fragment of the Spear of Destiny, the spear used to pierce the side of Christ, and it’s Flynn’s job to get it back! With a sexy Amazon bodyguard Nicole (Sonya Walger, Coupling), he must journey to the most exotic, inaccessible and treacherous corners of the earth on a mission to recover the spear - a mission that will determine if the nervous but charming Flynn really has what it takes to be a superhero.
An action packed comedy adventure from Dean Devlin, the Writer/Producer of Independence Day and Stargate.
