Directed by Jonathan Frakes

Aha! This movie had something I was arching for, a frustrated and tired Flynn Carsen.

Been watching the whole TV Movie series and I have to say TNT did a good job with these movies. But I have been curios and asking myself with all these running around the world saving the world over and over again, would Flynn not be tired and eager to get a life?

In the first movie, he was kicked out of class by a teacher asking him to go get a life. Flynn then got this job and I don’t think he found a life, he just found something else to distract him from the obvious, he didn’t have a life.

Being The Librarian means, your life is focused on service to humanity alone, but Flynn wants more and in the premise the movie Flynn had a nervous breakdown. This breakdown caused the library veterans Charlene (Jane Curtin) and Judson (Bob Newhart) to doubt if he will return back to be the Librarian.

He is given some holiday time and Flynn learned the hard way that being a Librarian means you do not get any day off.

In this movie, Flynn’s female side kick, which has been what he gets in every movie is Simone Renoir (Stana Katic). Stana plays Detective Kate Beckett on the ABC series Castle, in Castle her acting is top notch and very impressive, but here it was more cheezy, making me wish some stick a stake in this woman's heart quick.

Simone is a vampire who is hunting for the man who turned her. Her path intertwines with that of Flynn who is in hunt for the Judas Chalice. Flynn’s decision to go after the Judas Chalice was formed when on vacation he met Simone and the men who are after what she guards which is a rear medallion which points to the hidden place where the Judas Chalice can be found.

Get ready to meet Vlad Dracula in this movie, but be ready to be disappointed on how he is going to be taken down and destroyed for all eternity I guess.

TNT’s decision to now turn all this movie franchise to a TV series is a good idea from where I stand I hope we don’t get bored quickly by a bunch of people hunting down mysteries week in week out.

Now I guess I can go start watching the series now, and be up to date with the current order of things.
