How sad...
27 February 2013 | by (Québec) – See all my reviews

As a movie of its own its watchable and would deserve maybe a 4 out of 10, as an Atstérix movie its horrible and as an adaptation of the legendary "Astérix chez les Bretons" its a revolting abomination.

What made Astérix so good was the subtlety of the humour and yes they made references to modern cultures too but not in such obvious way.

Also the authors had so much talent and such a huge cultural background, comparing their work to this movie make it look like it was written by a bunch of drunk teenagers.

On the good side the guy playing Jolitorax was funny even tho he looked nothing like the original character.

In my opinion Edouard Baer is always funny but except for the costume he was just himself and nothing like Astérix, same with Cesar except Fabrice Luchini isn't so funny.

Depardieu did what he could with the lines he had, nothing special or memorable.

I was surprised by the Normand, they were like in the cartoons for once but one was named "Yadutaf" ... I wont write what I think about that cause they don't allow vulgarity on this website.

I don't get why they removed many good characters and moments to replace them by very bad ones... The worst was Gaulix, they just replaced him by a lame English character with no lines or personality. Maybe its just me but he was one of my favorite Astérix character. I had such hopes for this character and they just removed him ... I mean whats wrong with Gaulix ? Was he too "french" for an audience that is brainwashed into hating their identity.

Even tho the title was repulsive and the movie bound to be awful, I watched it out of nostalgia and ended up frustrated. If like me the original is one of your best childhood memories, do yourself a favour and keep these memories intact by not watching this pathetic "adaptation".

This movie is a good example of the decline of french culture and society, France really needs an intervention like they do with people who fall from grace although the same could be said about most occidental countries...

Yeah yeah I know, I'm done ranting.
