Curse of the Judas Chalice Review

The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice (2008)

The 3rd movie in the series again stars Noah Wyle as the 007 wannabe Librarian. The 1st movie was fairly enjoyable, the 2nd was dreadful and this one was just dull. However TPTB do finally acknowledge that his love interests have changed from film to film.

Flynn (Wyle) heads for New Orleans to find the Judas Chalice for a Library that already contains a UFO, Noah's Ark, the Fountain of Youth and the Loch Ness Monster. Some baddies with wafer thin motivation want to raise an army of vampires. This film rips off not only 'Blade II' but 'Dracula 2001'. Via some idiot plotting and moronic plot development, Flynn gets lucky with a female vampire, fights Dracula and deals with his smug boss.

There is copious foreshadowing for a 4th Librarian movie, you just wish they'd stop hinting at all this war between good and evil to come and actually do it. The final image of the Library stacks shaped like the Tree Of Life was great - why couldn't the entire film be that good?

Best Line:
"How big is the Library?"
"As big as we need it to be."
