Trivia

Astérix creators René Goscinny & Albert Uderzo had no input in the first Asterix feature, Asterix the Gaul (1967), which was made by Georges Dargaud without their consent. For this second animated film, they decided to take control. Uderzo even came to the conclusion that Astérix's legs had to be made a bit longer to enable him to walk properly and subsequently changed the way he drew the character. See more »

Many sound effects are off-sync, for example an urn falls into the floor at one point, after the crash is heard. See more »

Not bad...
30 November 2005 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

This is the second Asterix film and, frankly, it's much better than 'Asterix the Gaul' (the first Asterix movie). Partly, I think this is because it's actually less faithful to the book than the first film. As a result, there are jokes that work far better on the screen than on the page, there are new scenes and there are even some fairly decent musical numbers.

I only have one real complaint about this film, and that is that a lot of the jokes lack subtlety- they are carried on beyond the point at which they remain funny.

That aside, not a bad film. More for the kids than the adults, but fairly entertaining nonetheless.
