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

When Professor Lazlo is describing Vlad in his lecture, he calls him Dracula, and explains it means Son of the Dragon, Son of the Devil. Vlad was really known as Dracula because his father, Vlad II, was called Dracul. This was because he was a member of the Order of the Dragon, which was founded to protect Christianity in Eastern Europe. See more »

The third and best 'Librarian' - Please DON'T let this one be the last!!!
27 February 2010 | by CelticnationalistSee all my reviews

Just forget that this is a Made-for-Cable (TNT) movie, THE LIBRARIAN: THE CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE is such a well made Film, with a fun pulp story with great acting and decent visual effects, it easily rivals theatrical releases.

Noah Wyle is back as Flynn Carson, The geeky Historian/Adventurer - this time around after retrieving the philosophical stone at an auction house in London and getting dumped by his Girlfriend in the process, Judson (Bob Newhart) and Charlene (Jane Curtin) decide that Flynn needs a Holiday, especially after his meltdown at the Library, so Flynn travels to New Orleans for a break away from his work as 'The Librarian'

His Holiday doesn't last for very long as an incredibly sexy & mysterious woman Simone Renoir (the gorgeous Stana Katic 'Castle') A guardian to a key which gives clues to finding the Judas Chalice (An artifact capable of resurrecting vampires) needs Flynn's help, because a former Russian defence minister is after the Chalice himself so that he can resurrect Vlad the Vampire along with the forced assistance of Professor Lazlo, an acclaimed Historian who they kidnap (Bruce Davidson).

The Direction by Jonathan Frakes is first class, The acting by all is solid - Wyle,Newhart and Curtin give very likable performances as always and Stana Katic is such a mesmerizing beauty. The Visual effects (considering this is a TNT Movie) are outstanding.

THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE is just such an entertaining Film from start to finish - I have thoroughly enjoyed all 3 'Librarian' movies - They are the most superior quality of TVMs that I have ever seen, and would love to see another!
