The best Asterix-movie
18 June 2000 | by action-6See all my reviews

Astérix et la surprise de César(Asterix and Cesar`s surprise) is definitely the best Asterix cartoon. It captures the atmosphere and style of the classic comics extremely well and this is a must see if you liked the comics. Those who have read the comics will soon see that some of the plot-details have been changed, but it doesn`t matter since the end-result is very good. 9/10
