Action! Adventure! Thrills and spills! Eik Meiers, his fiancé, archaeologist Katharina and the lively art restorer Justus return to the screen to rescue Eik\'s mentor, Professor Bachmann, from the evil clutches of the really bad, totally unscrupulous, stop-at-nothing, beyond fanatical art collector von Hahn. Bachmann, it seems, has been researching the secret of the Holy Lance, the spear rammed into Jesus\' side while he was on the cross. Also known as The Spear of Fate, it gives its owner invincibility. What bunch of do-badders could say no to that? A race develops to find the Professor and the weapon. To make things worse (that is, more entertaining for viewers), the spear is guarded by deadly traps and spooky riddles thought up by none other than the last universal genius, Goethe! Eik, Katharina and Justus are led from Schiller\'s skull to the fabled Valhalla and on to the Brandenburg Gate, where they fall into the catacombs and climb to the very top. With von Hahn hard on his heels, Eik has to put his trust in God\'s hand to save humanity. But will he pass the final test? The chase across Germany, from the grandiose Alpine lake to the dazzling capital is on! A sequel to the ratings goodness (21.6% share, 4.16 million viewers for RTL, their most successful film of 2008) that was \"Die Jagd nach dem Schatz der Nibelungen\", \"Die Jagd nach der heiligen Lanze\" (\'The Spear of Destiny\') is directed by none other than Academy Award Nominee Florian Baxmeyer, of The Three ??? fame. The script is by Nibelungen-writer Derek Meister. Budgeted at a super 5.2 million Euros, \"Die Jagd nach der heiligen Lanze\" promises to be bigger, faster, bolder and, quite simply, have more of everything that worked so well the first time round.
