SUMMARY: The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice is the third in The Librarian franchise of movies starring Noah Wyle as a librarian who protects a secret collection of artifacts. It is a sequel to 2004's The Librarian: Quest for the Spear and 2006's The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines. Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) travels to an auction house in England in order to bid on a priceless Ming vase on behalf of the Library. During the bidding war that ensues, he accidentally both outbids his competitor by going over budget and has a fight with his girlfriend on the phone. Once he has signed for the vase, he promptly breaks it open, revealing the philosopher's stone, the most powerful transmutational artifact in existence, known for changing any object instantly into gold. As his opponent bidder and henchman ambush him for the stone, he deftly defends the stone using a combination of historical knowledge and swordplay throughout the auction house, concurrently parrying his opponents' blows while the two debate the pricing of the items within. Once Flynn has won the duel, he proceeds to his hotel lobby, hoping to repair their relationship, only to find that she has abandoned him after a string of disappointments.

I liked the movie. A few years ago when we still had Cable TV, I caught a few episodes of the TV Series "The Librarians" and recently bought the first 2 seasons to watch when I stumbled across the 3 movies. I opted to purchase the movies and have now watched the last of the 3 movies with the family and we all enjoyed it. I am glad that I will watch the movies first because it adds a lot of backstory to the Library and the characters. It's sort of like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Romancing the stone but I think it is better.
Jane Curtain & Bob Newhart reprise their roles and Flynn ends up in New Orleans searching for the Judas Chalice, and falls in love with a french singer who turns out to be a vampire (Stana Katic of Castle fame). I liked the movie a lot and am now looking forward to the rest of the series (Seasons 1, 2 and 3). We also learn more about the library and how it came to be.
The hero is interesting and entertaining in what appears to be the last of the trilogy, as he portrays life's effects upon us all.
He needs a vacation from saving the world after his girlfriends disasterous telephone timing - something we've probably all done without being privelaged to be aware on the day.
Vacation obtained after the temper tantrum many of us might wish we could throw at work the poor man finds there is actually no way he can escape either work or love, even while on vacation.
One could say that workwise his cup runneth over while the his love life returned with something of a bite, working its way towards poingnancy.
The writers did a good job with this, there's everything from voodoo to vampires woven into the storyline, but well woven. The special effects are above average for this type of film, the acting varies from deadpan to hilarious but is consistently of better than average quality - and New Orleans is always an excellent backdrop.
I've now purchased the other two in the series - no, they're not Indiana Jones but for some they're possibly even more enjoyable, for the rest of us they're simply excellent entertainment and great for a quiet evening when a more action orientated family film is desirable.

Consiglio questo film a grandi e piccini. Non ve ne pentirete. Magari uscisse anche in italiano(visto che il film esiste in lingua italiana)
The Librarian: Quest for the Spear The Librarian: Return to King Solomon's Mines
The movies are similar to the TV show but not quite as polished and perhaps written for a younger audience.
That said, LOVE Noah and I must say I enjoyed the movies a lot.
