I remember about a year back when my father in law was raving about this movie he saw on TV. It was called "The Librarian". It was part of a trilogy, and he just couldn't wait to see the rest of it.
The little he told me about it (knowing that I don't like to know the whole movie before I see it) sounded interesting.
That's why, when I ran across The Librarian in New Zealand, I wanted to check it out.
But, to be honest, it wasn't very good. It felt like Noah Wyle was trying to be an actor instead of being one.
The story was too far-fetched, and not far-fetched enough. It had a great idea and premise, but it fell short on delivery.
A man becomes the new Librarian, but his real job is to protect the "mythical" objects of lore. Of course, one of the most powerful objects falls into the wrong hands, and it's his job to get it back and save the world.
Sounds good right? Wrong. They should have either over played this, or underplayed it. Instead they went for the middle ground, and in this case that was the worst thing they could have done.
