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

Did You Know?

Trivia

At first glance, the fact that Simone possesses a full-length mirror appears a bit odd; as a vampire, which in common lore don't cast reflections, she would have no practical need for it. However, it's possible that it holds sentimental value for her. See more »

Goofs

As Flynn enters the barber shop you see a man playing guitar. The music that you hear is a basic blues rhythm that is played with a (metal or glass) slide on the left hand. However you clearly see that the man does not have a slide on his fingers and furthermore his left hand rarely moves. It is impossible to get the tones that you hear without a slide and without more frequent hand movements with both the left and right hand. See more »

Keeps getting better
16 January 2009 | by vrangerSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the 2nd installment of this series better than the original movie (and I enjoyed the original a lot!), but I believe that they've improved yet again with the 3rd installment in the series.

"Curse of the Judas Chalice" had the same light hearted and comic view of Indianna Jones style adventure, but I found the plot to be deeper and more surprising. This series has a surprising character turn as part of its 'formula' in each installment. This time the surprise was two-fold. Although I saw one of them coming well in advance, the other one got me.

These movies are ideal family fare ... amusing and entertaining for adults without including content inappropriate for even young children. Such movies are hard to find these days, but the Librarian series pulls it off solidly.
