Storyline

Caesar has had enough when another legion is hacked to pieces by the damned single indomitable village in Gaul because of the druid's magic potion, so he decides to tackle the problem at the root before conspiratorial senators exploit his humiliation: sycophant Lucullus is ordered to capture the druid (believed immortal) and push him over the edge of the earth (according to the story still believed to be flat as a pizza; actually Greeks and Romans knew better). By pure luck, Lucullus' first net traps both druid and Obelix's pet dog, so the giant and Asterix follow them by ship on the Atlantic, and crash after a storm on the North America coast in pursuit of the druid who was catapulted off the Roman galley before Lucullus triumphantly sets sails back for Europe. They find the druid and meet a tribe of Indians (believing to be in India), literally a whole New World for the equally primitive Celts. At the home front, Caesar sees his chance to overrun the village, but has to wait till ... Written by KGF Vissers

Although I had never heard of the character "Asterix", I decided to chance the classic cartoon. Upon watching, and reading the synopsis of the film, I clearly understood the "effect" it reasonably portrayed. However, I also realized that within this film, there is clearly a nude scene of male genitalia! (The man had his pants down. *Also noted in a recent post in the message board.*) I myself was just as surprised. As an adult, I laugh at "hidden jokes" a lot of cartoons insinuate and even word around what should be "adult humor". However, this is flat out unrighteous! They may have gotten away with that in the 70s, but "new age" cartoons can only give fart jokes and bare-bum shots! (Including their resort to subliminal messages for the older generations watching along.) Rated 2/5 due to the distasteful display of a crotch-shot, but short framed enough that most (luckily) don't catch-- sorry kids.
