Goofs

While it is stated (and shown) near the end that whoever used the tainted magic potion has a blue tongue, a few minutes earlier when Brutus has already drank the potion, his mouth is wide open when he is holding on to the reins and his tongue is clearly visible for a while. It is not blue though. See more »

Celebrity cameos festival, but nothing more....
4 February 2008 | by zxgerardSee all my reviews

Of course I was expecting celebrity cameos, but I hopped the movie won't stand only on this. Unfortunately it does it.

At each minute a celebrity face arrives, (french and European celebrities of course) makes a reference and gets out. What about ASTERIX himself ? Well, he's also making a "cameo" since he is not the main character of this movie. And the worst stands at the end of the movie (when the story is finished) when a bunch of sport's stars arrived to show themselves without having nothing to do in the spot line. Sort of "we didn't have time to put you in the story, but you will appear at the end, to increase our credits"...

The good points : The special effects and the set decoration are really great. We understand this picture costs the price of a "STARWARS". Too bad to have spent so much for a tiny joke...

"THE MOST EXPENSIVE FRENCH MOVIE OF ALL TIME !".

What a pride ! :)
