Caesar has had enough when another legion is hacked to pieces by the damned single indomitable village in Gaul because of the druid's magic potion, so he decides to tackle the problem at the root before conspiratorial senators exploit his humiliation: sycophant Lucullus is ordered to capture the druid (believed immortal) and push him over the edge of the earth (according to the story still believed to be flat as a pizza; actually Greeks and Romans knew better). By pure luck, Lucullus' first net traps both druid and Obelix's pet dog, so the giant and Asterix follow them by ship on the Atlantic, and crash after a storm on the North America coast in pursuit of the druid who was catapulted off the Roman galley before Lucullus triumphantly sets sails back for Europe. They find the druid and meet a tribe of Indians (believing to be in India), literally a whole New World for the equally primitive Celts. At the home front, Caesar sees his chance to overrun the village, but has to wait till ... Written by KGF Vissers

Average Asterix
25 October 2014 | by bazmitch23See all my reviews

I remember watching this flick as a kid, so last night I took a trip down memory lane by watching it on Youtube.

The first two acts were great, but the third one sucks. The finale was rushed. Normally the climax of a film is meant to action packed and entertaining. Here, it just flies by and you don't care.

I didn't buy the relationship between Obelix and the Indian girl. The scene where they say goodbye is meant to be sad, but we feel nothing because we only had one scene of them together. Maybe if they had more scenes, that goodbye scene would work properly.

Craig Charles is miscast as Asterix. When you see Asterix, do you think to yourself "Dave Lister should play him"?

The guy playing Obelix works though. But the star of the movie is Christopher Biggins' villain. He's such a kiss ass, yet his plan works. And Chris had fun camping it up.

I liked the Oxford/Camberidge joke and the Romans forming into a pie and slicing a piece. That joke was well done.

The CGI sucks and it's not a film that'll grab you. It doesn't leave you with the urge to watch it again.

Worth watching if you like Asterix, but its not as good as The Twelve Tasks Of Asterix which is my fave Asterix movie.
