Storyline

After another raid in an empty village, the chief of the Vikings Timandahaf misunderstands the explanation of his druid Cryptograf that "fear gives wings to the dwellers" and believes that fear actually makes the villagers fly. They decide to chase the champion of fear in Gaul to learn how to fly and make them invincible warriors. Meanwhile, the nephew of Vitalstatistix, Justforkix, is sent from Parisium to the Gaulish village to become a man and Asterix and Obelix are assigned to train the youngster. The stupid son of Cryptograf, Olaf, listens to a conversation of the coward Justforkix with Asterix and Obelix and kidnaps him. While returning to the Viking village, Justforkix meets Abba, the daughter of Timandahaf, and they fall in love for each other. But the Machiavellian and ambitious Cryptograf plan to marry his son Olaf with Abba and become powerful. In the end, Asterix realizes that it is not fear that gives wings, it is love.

Trivia

The movie is base on the book "Asterix and the Normans" however it extends the plot and uses elements from some other books, notably "Asterix and the Great Crossing" - such us the viking party scene and the joke about Obelix supply, while the scene when Asterix and Obelix dress up as vikings "Asteraf and Obelaf" with Obelix who can't stop laughing about it, resembles the scene from Asterix and the Goths when the duo dress up as Romans "Asterus" and "Obelus".

No humor, and not half as good as the other movies
5 August 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie in the Dutch dub, but that was enough to form my opinion about this movie.

I know that I shouldn't be so critical because this is a kiddy movie, but compared to the other movies, played with actual people and the animated, even compared to the comic books, this movie is a pure, money based production.

The animation looks beautiful, but it seems they were so busy with that part, they forgot to add everything else. I really missed the humor, the characters were boring and the story was as flat and thin as a nickel.

unlike a lot of kiddy movies (like Monsters Inc.), the only real way to enjoy this is to be a 4 year old.

I'm sorry if i'm this harsh, but i'm no liar.

You want something funny? avoid this and watch this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133385/?ref_=sr_2
