The Librarian Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) is back in the last part of the trilogy! Flynn is in an antique auction, trying to buy a Ming-vase. Flynn has a new girl friend Katie (Beth Burvant). However the auction does not go quite as planned and also Katie ditches Flynn. Flynn is stressed because his job disrupts his personal life and his best friend is a flying sword. He takes a vacation and travels to New Orleans.

Meanwhile a former KGB-agent and Russian nationalist Sergei Kubichek (Dikran Tulaine) is searching for the grave of Vlad Dracul. He kidnaps Professor Lazlo (Bruce Davison) to help him find the grave. In New Orleans Flynn meets a singer Simone Renoir (Stana Katic), who has something that the baddies want. After escaping, Flynn and Simone have a romance. The bad guys are searching for Judas Chalice that resurrects dead vampires and Flynn and Simone must stop them. They get help from a local taxi driver Andre (Werner Richmond) who knows New Orleans like the back of his hand.

Judson (Bob Newhart) and Charlene (Jane Curtin) are again aboard bringing some deadpan comic moments. The library still has some relic storage areas not shown previously. Effects are the best of the trilogy, good TV-movie level CGI. The movie does not make huge changes to the working formula, but reveals a bit more about the origin of the Librarians. Flynn uses again his vast knowledge to survive dangerous situations. The ending gives the possibility of sequels, tying the Librarians to the eternal battle of good versus evil. Again this is a fun adventure film, but perhaps having a little bit more melancholy than the previous two films.
Now that's weird
