Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra
Family • PG • 2002 • 1 hr 48 min
Un film largement à la hauteur de sa réputation à ne manquer sous aucun prétexte
Always good to come back to this. The humor never gets old.
It’s a decent movie with funny dialogue!
Great family comedy. Watched it 100 times.
Very funny. The humour is well translated to the movie format.
It was my favourite movie, when I was 10. It still holds up, I think.
Certains acteurs jouent trop gros et offrent un humour bas de gamme. Le film en est affecté, mais demeure à la limite inférieure de bon.
Classique absolu de comédie française chaque scène est hilarante
The best Astérix movie, a masterpiece that his predecessor try to replicate, without success. The lack of the Alain Chabat talent I guess.
Very funny especially if you are French
Set in 50 B.C., Asterix and Obelix are living in a small but well-protected village in Gaul, where a magic potion concocted by Druids turns the townsfolk into mighty soldiers. When Roman troops carve a path through Gaul to reach the English Channel, Caesar and his aide de camp Detritus discover the secret elixir and capture the Druid leader who knows its formula, and Asterix and Obelix are sent off to rescue them.
The Egyptian Queen Cleopatra bets against the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar, that her people are still great, even if the times of the Pharaohs has long passed. She vows (against all logic) to build a new palace for Caesar within three months. Since all her architects are either busy otherwise or too conservative in style, this ambivalent honor falls to Edifis. He is to build the palace and be covered in gold or, if not, his fate is to be eaten by crocodiles. Edifis calls upon an old friend to help him out: The fabulous Druid Getafix from Gaul, who brews a fantastic potion that gives supernatural strength. In order to help and protect the old Druid, Asterix and Obelix accompany him on his journey to Egypt. When Julius Caesar gets wind of the project succeeding, he has the building site attacked by his troops in order to win the bet and not lose face. But just like the local pirates, he hasn't counted on Asterix and Obelix.
Astérix and Obélix have to win the Olympic Games in order to help their friend Alafolix marry Princess Irina. Brutus uses every trick in the book to have his own team win the game, and get rid of his father Julius Caesar in the process.
Asterix crosses the channel to help second-cousin Anticlimax face down Julius Caesar and invading Romans.
Gallic heroes and forever friends Asterix and Obelix journey to China to help Princess Sa See save the Empress and her land from a nefarious prince.
