The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice Movie Review

Are you looking for a great movie to watch this weekend?

The premiere date for TNT's The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice, starring Noah Wyle is December 7!! We were excited when we were offered the opportunity to review it before the premiere! This is movie is from a series that started in 2004,with a movie called The Librarian: Quest for the Spear. It was then followed in 2006 by The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines. This will be the third and final adventure in The Librarian series!!!

About the Movie:

The world is in danger of being overrun by vampires, and the only person who can prevent it from happening is Flynn Carsen in the third installment of TNT’s hugely successful Librarian franchise, starring Noah Wyle (ER). THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE, co-starring Bob Newhart (Elf, The Bob Newhart Show) and Jane Curtin (Our Town, 3rd Rock from the Sun), sends the bookish hero Flynn to New Orleans, where he tries to undo a nefarious vampire plot and rescue a kidnapped professor (Bruce Davison – X-Men, Knight Rider) with the help of a beautiful chanteuse (Stana Katic – Feast of Love).

TNT’s THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE will premiere Sunday, Dec. 7, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), leading up to the launch of LEVERAGE, an exciting, new action-packed series starring Oscar® winner Timothy Hutton, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). Both projects come to TNT from executive producer Dean Devlin (Independence Day) and his Electric Entertainment.

THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE was directed by Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation), who also directed the second Librarian installment, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines. The story opens with the kidnapping of Professor Lazlo (Davison), a brilliant language and history expert at the University of Bucharest. Elderly and using a crutch to walk, he is taken hostage by a group that wants to force him to locate the Judas Chalice. They hope to use the cup – which was made from the 30 pieces of silver Judas received for betraying Jesus – to bring the notorious Prince Vlad Dracul back to life and foist evil on the world.

Meanwhile, Flynn heads to New Orleans for what he hopes will be a vacation. He has been summoned through mysterious dreams by Simone Renoir (Katic), a gorgeous New Orleans jazz club singer. She has made it her mission to keep the location of the Judas Chalice a secret so it won’t fall into the wrong hands. When the secret is accidentally revealed and the cup taken, Flynn and Simone must do everything in their power to prevent Vlad Dracul from casting the entire world into shadow. Helping from the sidelines are Judson (Newhart), the enigmatic and always surprising head of the Library, and Charlene (Curtin), the extremely serious-minded, no-nonsense personnel director.

THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE was executive-produced by Electric Entertainment’s Dean Devlin, Kearie Peak and Marc Roskin. Wyle and Electric’s Phil Goldfarb produced the movie, with the company’s Rachel Olschan co-producing. The teleplay is by Marco Schnabel.

Overall , we loved this movie! It is a great series of adventure movies for the whole family! Since they are made for TV movies they are more family friendly. Our family really enjoyed the history aspect of the movie and combined with the historical fiction aspects of this movies it really makes the movie more interesting! This is definitely a must see movie!!
