Edgier than its predecessors, THE LIBRARIAN: CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE runs smoothly on well traveled tracks. Only this time there is more drinking, drug use, sex, and blood. Flynn is still a likeable goof who's gaining self confidence in his role as the Librarian, and Judson (Bob Newhart) has some ancient secrets of his own. The love interest in this film, Simone, boasts a buxom figure and a strong appetite for love. But the partying and violence in the film are a bit heavy handed for the target age. Flynn's guide to New Orleans boasts that the town is all about "music, booze, food, and women," while calling Flynn's hangover a "badge of honor." There are frightening vampire, zombie, and devil images, which might leave a bad taste in the viewer's mouth. Fans of the series will enjoy this finale, though, as it takes the intellectual-adventure formula about as far as it can go.
