Storyline

After retrieving the philosopher's stone at an auction but losing his girlfriend, The Librarian Flynn Carsen has a breakdown. Charlene and Judson ask him to spend some time on vacation. Flynn travels to New Orleans and he has a crush on a French singer (Simone Renoir). However he discloses that she is the guardian of a key to access the Judas Chalice that is capable to resurrect vampires. Meanwhile the former Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Kubichek is seeking the chalice to revive Vlad the vampire with the support of Professor Lazlo. Also to raise an army of undead to bring Russia back to the top of the world. When Simone reveals that she is a vampire, Flynn question whether she is not using him to reach the chalice and increase her power. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

A plesiosaur can be seen swimming in the pool in the last shot of the library floor. In a later episode of the follow-on series, Jenkins mentions that the largest animal they have in the library is Nessie, a.k.a. the Loch Ness Monster. Nessie believers have speculated that the monster might actually be a plesiosaur. See more »

Goofs

Datura hallucinations are quite different from what is depicted in the film. Although, seeing someone grow an extra finger, for example, is possible, datura is more along the lines of temporary psychosis. The most common hallucinations would be seeing people who aren't there, hearing voices, having conversations with people who aren't there, and seeing inanimate objects move and float. The character in the film would have never been able to remain so coherent after consuming a fairly large datura tincture. In reality, he would be extremely paranoid, probably running from or grabbing at his hallucinations. See more »

Quotes

Simone Renoir: Flynn, are you okay?
Flynn Carsen: Oh, my eye really hurts. These doors are made out of iron, these walls are six inches of wood, and it's about twenty hours 'till they resurrect Vlad. Okay, Simone, do your thing.
[Simone grabs the door handle and yanks, to no avail]
Flynn Carsen: I could do that.
Simone Renoir: I'm sorry, Flynn, okay? I am too weak. I haven't fed in over twenty-four hours.

How often do you see the nerd getting the gorgeous gall ?
27 February 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Well I've enjoyed the other two parts of the movie , and I had high expectations for this one too. I wasn't wrong. If you want a funny adventure movie, filled with action and thrills this isn't a bad choice. It's a great one. Although I wouldn't let someone under 12 watching it, especially if it will be played at night. Some vampire scenes ( a few I have to say) will make your heart go faster. The plot of the movie is well constructed and it is light and refreshing. A young librarian who saves the world and fights vampires and former KGB agents ,just in time to rescue ( or in this case, be rescued by) the gorgeous maiden in distress. What can you want more for a Friday or Saturday evening movie ? I have to admit, there are some history issues, easter European medieval history ( I'm from Romania and I do know my history) but this will only make the movie interesting to watch. It will bring a new perspective over some boring stuff. To sum it up ... Go and rent this movie. It will be fun. How often do you see the nerd getting the gorgeous gall ?
