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

Though Simone, a 17th century Frenchwoman, speaks English with an adopted French accent, Stana Katic actually can speak French, and it is one of five foreign languages in which she's fluent. See more »


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 »


Charlene: [following his down the stairs] Flynn! One million pounds!
Flynn Carsen: Please, Charlene. Not today. I'm not in the mood.
Charlene: [cynical] Oh fine! I'll just deduct it from your pay for the next fifty years.

By far and away the best of The Librarian series
6 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

The original movie was not terrible and had its moments, but I did find it lacking. The second is an improvement but is pretty much the same. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, the third in the series. It may not be perfect, the effects range from decent to excessively mediocre, some of the explanation of the plot points was rather obvious and unneeded and some of the supporting cast are still underused so that they can't do much with their roles. However, the photography and scenery are splendid, and the score is suitably rousing. The dialogue has its witty and clever moments rather than the tired humour of the first two, and the story while somewhat derivative is actually exciting with some thrilling set pieces. Jane Curtin and Bob Newhart continue to steal the film with their subtly deadpan delivery, while Noah Wyle is at his most natural and likable, Stana Katic is the first female lead to not feel out of place or bland, she is sexy and with some steel, and Bruce Davison is also enjoyable. Overall, very enjoyable and the best of the series. 7/10 Bethany Cox
