For years I was a big fan of Rene Gościnny comic books. Asterix, Lucky Luke, Iznogoud, Pettit Nicholas (which is not a comic book but a book but it's still very good), Les Dingodossiers, Umpa-Pa and all the rest he created. Fantastic stuff. After the second Asterix movie turn out to be very good I had big hopes for this one. The trailer was promising enough with cast and the visuals appear strongly similar to the comics.
Sadly this movie turn out to be horrible! Story is bad and have little to do with the comics, or even being a western spoof to be honest. Script is just mess with plot points handle poorly, weak humor (some times makes no sense) and character are simply annoying especially the Daltons themselfes. The only positive thing I can say is that actros who played the four Dalton brothers did their best and you can tell they did put a lot of energy to their parts but it didn't helped much. It's just painful to see two talented actors stand there and throw horrible bad lines at each other while two just stend in background since as lest known actors they only got the left-over lines and are mute for most of the movie despite of being in 70% of the scenes.
In fact I find it odd how on one hand the movie tries to make the Dalton brothers look like lovable loosers who are just trying to make their mother proud but at the same time still treat them like the villains of the story. So what the point? It must be confusing for the kids since mainly them will watch this and sadly the jokes are way to vulgar for them. Lucky Luke who is the main hero of the books have little to no screen time until the last 1/4 when he appears and captures the Daltons... Hurray? I don't get why they waste CGI for the character of Rantanplan since all he do is a quick cameo and his lines aren't even funny. There is a quick moment when the movie looks like it will turn into a spoof of "the Magificent seven" with the Daltons and got a little interesting... but that last for about five minutes and just got more terrible after that.
By far the worst adaptation of a Goscinny comic book which lives nothing but bad taste.
