Astérix at the Olympic Games
Fantasy • NR • 2008 • 1 hr 56 min
Not as hilarious as the one with Cleopatra.
Hilarious (in a good way)-there are both simple and deep jokes. Also, the plot is full of historically right facts.
Pretty mediocre adaptation of the source material. As a long time fan of the comics, I don't think they pulled this one off.
Super-fun action packed light movie, don't remember all the details now.
It was cool, but in my opinion, it lacked the usual Asterix vibe and magic.
Been many films dedicated 2 this little French hero, live action & animated, but 4 me this is the best yet! Great ensemble cast, & story! 😂
Un classique inégalable et inoubliable à ne manquer sous aucun prétexte
Have so much in common with the original comic, so it has to be great. But actually still less entertaining
If you like the total franchise, you'll like this movie too
Entertaining at times, but not nearly as good as the first one.
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.
