The moment we've all waited for....
9 September 2002 | by PlanecrazyIkarusSee all my reviews

OK: I'll admit it. I don't remember all of the details of the story any more. But this movie was one of my favourite Asterix movies. It is based on the Asterix comic of the same title (the 2nd or 3rd one in the series, I believe), and it contains the one moment that I, a big Obelix fan, have always been waiting for.... I won't spoil it, but it's been the best bit of the movie for me.

Also, it contains such a remarkable nose...

Funny and enjoyable, one of the better Asterix cartoons and movies.
