The well-known little village from the Asterix and Obelix-comic books is in trouble: It is the last place not controlled by Rome. When Tax collector Claudius Incorruptus does not get his money from the villagers, Julius Caesar himself comes to the place to see what's so special about their resistance. A special magic potion, prepared by the village's druid, gives incredible power to those who drink it. And Obelix, who fell into the pot as a child has been invincible ever since. With the help of Tullius Destructivus, an intrigeur, the Romans try to get Obelix and the druid into their hands in order to wipe the little village off the map, when the last potion of it's stock has been used up. But each individual also has some plans of his own...Written by

The movie has two main problems : - Jokes will mainly entertain the children, not much for adults - The "Obelix in love" subplot is played serious and not for comedy like in the books and the facts its ends with a downer, with the girl telling Obelix "Whe should just stay friends" after he save the entire village... What kind of horrible massage is that for the children?
However on the plus side... - The cast is great (especialy Roberto Benigni)and most of supporting cast do a great job playing the characters from the books - Some scenes like the fish fight and fight with the Romans are like strait out of the book - The music is great and over all for most part the movie is entertaining to watch
While its far from good it not bad and younger Asterix fans will love it
