The fat centurion whose camp the Gauls attack is a caricature of Pierre Tchernia, the writer of the movie. The same caricature of him appears in several Asterix books as he was a good friend of René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo, the Asterix creators. See more »

Lively adventure with Asterix and Obelix enlisted into foreign Roman Legion and as gladiators to rescue Falbala
This cartoon movie concerns about our friends, this time Obelix falls in love with Falbala, though she has a fiancée already. Obelix is utterly enamored, blowing down a lot of trees with irritation his dog Ideafix. But they're kidnapped by a Roman patrol and taken to the African legion outpost. Then Asterix and Obelix are assigned by the chief Abraracourcix and druid Panoramix for looking them for.Our intimate duo, the intelligent Asterix and Obelix with super-human strength, enlist Roman Army and as gladiators into a fighters school. As always, on the ending the bard is tied and the village people eating boars in a gargantuan lunch. This is one of the best Asterix film, it's a sheer pleasure throughout, capturing outrageous adventures, feats and hilarious moments. Full of modern anachronisms that's common thing in Asterix' comic books and the animation is more careless than former renditions. The picture brilliantly retrieves the humour, strong satire and adventures of the original story based partially in 'Asterix Gladiator' by the masters René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo. Enjoyable and lively musical score by Vladimir Cosma, though with songs on the preface and the finale to much catching. The motion picture is well directed by Brizzi brothers who posteriorly directed a segment of 'Fantasia 2000'. This is a lot of fun for children, grown-ups and nostalgics
