Storyline

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

Trivia

The movie's plot is loosely adapted from the comic Asterix and the Great Crossing, with a number of changes to it. See more »

Goofs

Caesar and the other Romans seem to think the world is flat. In truth, they would have known it was round, since scientists from Greek culture had determined this several centuries earlier. See more »

Alternate Versions

In 2003 the film was re-released in Germany with a different dubbing featuring the voices of John Friedmann and Florian Simbeck (the infamous comedy duo "Erkan & Stefan", best known for their pseudo-Turkish/Bavarian accent). That dub was also included on the DVD/Blu-ray (called the "Schwörerdeutsch-Version"). See more »

Fun! (for a Saturday afternoon)
27 December 2005 | by dcldanSee all my reviews

Well that's a film for kids, that is clear! However, that not means that Asterix in America is boring. The story is simple, but results convincing and entertains, which is its intention. The quality of the draws is not very good (I didn't expect them to be good, either) but the film doesn't try to result impressive. The only intention of the film is to make some laughs and to pass a good time, and, if you are not very exigent and you try to relax and smile, it is very possible that you enjoy this film. Of course it is not a masterpiece, but it has any intention of being it! Just relax and try not to be very critic, nothing more...
