If you grew up with Asterix & Obelix, this one here is a classic for you. It has ups and downs, not everything is good, but it's still fun.
Very funny, one of the best Asterix movies
Asterix and Obelix were a big part of my childhood so anytime i stumble upon this movie on tv I'm gonna watch it, it's a classic.
Funny and endearing. Truthful to the comics.
I just love Asterix and Obelix and i am happy that the movie turned as good :)
Good sense of humor, good movie with classic plot.
The first Asterix movie with actors but not my very favorite. But this is just because the others are great
One of those movies that you should just leave in your childhood memories untouched.
I think it needed a bigger budget and more special FX to be done more effectively.
Funny movie and good live action representation of the source.
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.
