Good clean fun
5 October 2013 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

In an era where we've been indundated with comic book-based movies, those Guallic warriors Asterix and Obelix have flown under the rader. Based on the classic French comic books, this is the fourth live-action movie, following 'Asterix and Obelix take on Ceasar' (1999),' Mission Cleopatra' (2002) and 'Asterix at the Olympic Games' (2008). While some of Asterix films can be quite cartoony and silly, 'Asterix and Obelix in Britain' is arguably the best of the series.

Based on the 'Asterix in Britain' comic book, it involves the Britons – who have been invaded by the dastardly Romans – seeking the Gauls and their magical potion for help. Of course, it falls to Asterix and Obelix, and their cowardly mentee Anticlimax (a bard more interested in romancing that battling) to travel to Britain and quell the Roman invasion (lead by a megalomaniac Julius Ceasar). Along the way Asterix and Obelix are nearly torn apart while fighting over women and meeting a tribe of Normans (Odin-worshipping Norse warriors), wanting to feel fear for the first time. Gérard Depardieu is Obelix for the fourth consecutive time. As usual he plays the role with gusto and childlike innocence, a perfect foil for the heroic Asterix. It's the friendship between the two heroes which makes the series so enjoyable, even when the closeness of their relationship is (jokingly) questioned.

The great thing about this film is the humor: while not as silly as previous films, it reflects the gentle satire and light-hearted tone of the comics. The Brits are depicted as uptight and obsessed with manners and etiquette while drinking their favourite beverage "hot water with a cloud of milk". Even while their village in being invaded by the Romans, the British guards don't bat an eye, instead talking about how hungry they are.

One of the strangest things about this films is it's completely in French; even the Romans, Normans and Britons speak French. It adds to the light-hearted feel of the film.

Needless to say, if you like the Asterix series, 'Asterix and Obelix in Britain' is worth watching.
