Amusing adventure with Asterix and his inseparable Obelix fighting against Romans in Britain
29 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

The year is approximately 50 B. C, Britain is entirely occupied by the Romans commanded by Julius Caesar. Well, not entirely..One small village of indomitable Bretons still holds out against the invaders. And the life is not easy for the Roman legionaries who garrison the fortified camps. Similarly happens on Gaul, where a small village located in Armorica live our friends, the intelligent hero Asterix, the menhir delivery and addicted to wild boar Obelix, the venerable Panoramix with his potion which gives the drinker incredible energy, the majestic,hot-tempered, brave chief of the tribe Abraracourcix... There come a Asterix's cousin asking for help against Romans. As always the perilous mission is immediately trusted to shrewd and cunning Asterix .Obelix, ready to drop everything and go off on a new adventure with Asterix; then they set out to deliver a barrel plenty of powerful potion getting superhuman strength and brewed by druid Panoramix. His mission transport it for the Britons and vanquish the invaders Romans.

This is a nice adventure with hilarious moments here and there, and has Asterix and his inseparable friend fighting, as always, against stupid Romans. Full of customs critical about actual British way of life and modern anachronisms that's common thing in comic books. The cartoon movie brilliantly captures the outrageous adventures, tongue in check, satire, humour from original story with the same title and drawn by Albert Uderzo and writing credits by Rene Goscinny . As usual, on the finale the village people eating boars in a gargantuan lunch and the Bard Cacofonix tied a tree and accompanied of a lively musical score by Vladimir Cosma with a catching song on the start and the ending. The film will like to Asterix and Obelix fans , it's an funny entertaining for kids and grown-ups and nostalgics
