The well-known little village from the Asterix and Obelix-comic books is in trouble: It is the last place not controlled by Rome. When Tax collector Claudius Incorruptus does not get his money from the villagers, Julius Caesar himself comes to the place to see what's so special about their resistance. A special magic potion, prepared by the village's druid, gives incredible power to those who drink it. And Obelix, who fell into the pot as a child has been invincible ever since. With the help of Tullius Destructivus, an intrigeur, the Romans try to get Obelix and the druid into their hands in order to wipe the little village off the map, when the last potion of it's stock has been used up. But each individual also has some plans of his own... Written by

For the pit-scene a fake alligator was used, as well as real ones. To calm the alligators down they were put in cold water. For a certain scene, Gerard Depardieu's stuntman was supposed to jump on a model-alligator and surf across the pond. Unfortunately, the stuntman made a mistake and jumped on a real alligator. He just managed to get away fast enough without being hurt by the animal. See more »
One of the things I enjoyed during my childhood was reading Asterix-comics. And I still do. But then the cartoons came along and I hated everything about them. The humor was made more childish and everything was so stupid. And I keep thinking how bad they would have been, if they were live action. Both the live action and the cartoons are bad, but the live action is the worst. The movie tries to relate closely to the comics, but fails hard. And one thing that really bugs, is that they even were allowed to make a sequel after this flob. I actually had a bad taste in my mouth after watching this, so I'll warn you about watching this. I'll give it one more point for some of the music.
