Disappointing. The previous two movies were significantly better.

This is a movie about a man who behaves like a precocious eight-year-old, only it is not suitable for eight-year-old kids to watch unless you want to teach your kid that picking up a woman in a bar and having aggressive sex with her that very night is how people form relationships that result in love. Other than that flaw in the script, this is a made-for-TV movie, fade-to-commercial-style directing by Jonathan Frakes, that has decent visual effects and some witty dialog. As someone said before, it's a lightweight Indiana Jones-style adventure, an old-fashioned serial that would appeal at the Saturday matinee (if it weren't so irrelevantly sexual).

Such an enjoyable series! The heroine in this case is Stana Katic, star of "Castle", and the hero is Noah Wylie of "ER". They are delightful; I recommend the other two movies in this series, as well as the TV series, "The Librarians", on TNT. I just wish Jane Curtin's role were bigger; she's still a joy, as is Bob Newhart.

fun, corny, librarian version of Indiana Jones.

Considering the nature of his job, Flynn might as well give up on the idea of having a long-lasting relationship.

Why do the writers insist on shoe-horning romance into these films? Flynn and the new woman here didn't have chemistry IMO. I didn't care for the vampire aspect either.

I really enjoyed this movie, and hope they make a fourth. This is a good action flick that doesn't take it self to seriously. I would highly recommend watching the other two first, but it isn't necessary. I would recommend this to fans of action comedies.

Ok, so I am a librarian. The secret is out. But this totally cheesy movie was still very cool.

Not a great movie, but good light entertainment when you're not expecting to be wowed. An interesting continuation of the librarian-themed movies. One funny line during Flynn's violent encounters: "I think it only fair to warn you that I am a librarian."

This third movie in the series finally found the right mix of adventure, drama, romance, and chemistry. A fun film to watch.
