Entertaining adventure that isn't a version of the popular Astérix & Obélix comic books, being a free rendition
28 February 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Amusing and fun feats with Asterix and his faithful friend Obelix fighting Romans . The diminutive Asterix (Christian Clavier, who provides the voice and he previously starred Astérix y Obélix against Caesar 1999 and Astérix and Obélix: mission Cleopatra 2002 ) and his rather larger companion Obelix (voice by Guillaume Briat) , warriors of the last village in Gaul still free after the Roman invasion, set out on a mission to search for a talented successor in order to deliver the cauldron of their druid's famous magic potion to help villagers to fight off the invading Roman army . The year is approximately 50 B. C , Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans commanded by Julius Caesar . Wel l, not entirely..One small village of indomitable natives still holds out against the invaders . And the life is not easy for the Roman legionaries who garrison the fortified camps. There a small village located in Armorica live our friends , the intelligent hero Asterix, the menhir delivery and addicted to wild boar Obelix, the venerable druid Panoramix with his potion which gives the drinker incredible energy, the majestic,hot-tempered , brave chief of the tribe Abraracourcix , the Bard singer playing harp ... As always the perilous mission is immediately trusted to shrewd and cunning Asterix . Obelix , ready to drop everything and go off on a new adventure with Asterix and this time accompanied by Panoramix and a little girl .Meanwhile , in order to wipe out the Gaulish village by any means necessary , Caesar plans a sinister plot . Following a fall during mistletoe picking up , Druid Panoramix decides that it is time to secure the future of the Gaul village . Accompanied by Asterix and Obelix , he undertakes to travel the Gallic world in search of a talented young druid to transmit the ¨Secret of the Magic Potion¨ usually brewed by druid Panoramix . As they set out to find a new druid to prepare the powerful potion getting superhuman strength . As Panoramix sends a small herd of boars to call his 'fellow druids' for a special meeting at the forest , while the invading Romans are attacking the surrounded village .Then Panoramix has to confront Sulfurix , the heinous and envious druid allied with the Romans , who results to be clearly more powerful and whose only flaw is not to have invented the magic potion .

Bemusing 3D computer generator movie about the immortal heroes , based on characters created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo , though this time the plot is not adapted from an already existing comic book , it stars Asterix and his inseparable partner Obelix , from French comic-books .This is a nice adventure with hilarious moments here and there , and has Asterix and his inseparable friend battling , as usual , against silly Romans as well as a nasty and moustachioed druid . Full of fights , noisy action , chases , jokes , customs critical about way of life and modern anachronisms that's common thing in comic books . The movie brilliantly captures the outrageous adventures , tongue-in-check , satire , absurd humour from original characters created by Albert Uderzo and by Rene Goscinny . Christian Clavier, who provides the voice for Asterix in this picture , formerly portrayed him in the first two Asterix live-action-movies . As usual , on the finale scenes the village people celebrating a wild party and eating boars in a gargantuan lunch . After this is the second animated Asterix movie that is based on the original characters by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny but not on a specific Asterix volumen .

This passable second entry shot in computer generator 3D , was preceded by several cartoon movies , such as : ¨Asterix the Gaul¨ (1967) , ¨The Twelve Tasks of Asterix¨ (1976) , ¨Asterix in Britain¨ (1986) . And various live-action movies as : ¨Asterix vs Caesar¨ directed by Claude Zidi with Christian Clavier , Gerard Depardieu , Robert Benigni , Laetitia Casta , Arielle Dombasle . ¨Asterix and Cleopatra¨ by Alain Chabat with Monica Belucci , Jamel Debbouze , Claude Rich , Marina Fois , Gérard Darmon . ¨Asterix and the Olympic Games¨ by Frederic Forrestier with Clovis Cornillac , Santiago Segura, Monica Cruz , Jean Pierre Castaldi and Janel Debouzze . ¨Astérix and Obélix: On Her Majesty's Secret Service¨ (2012) by Laurent Tirard with Gérard Depardieu , Edouard Baer, Guillaume Gallienne , Vincent Lacoste , Charlotte Le Bonn . The motion picture was professionally written and directed by Louis Clichy and Alexandre Astier . Both of them wrote and directed the prior entry ¨The Mansions of the Gods¨ (2014) in 3D that dealt with a Caesar's plan to absorb the villagers into Roman culture by having an estate built next to the village to start a new Roman colony . Director Alexandre Astier is a notorious actor , writer , producer and filmmaker . While Louis Clichy worked at the Animation department in 2009 : Up , 2008: Burn-E and 2008 : WALL·E as an animator . The film appeal to Asterix and Obelix fans , it's a funny entertaining for kids , grown-ups and nostalgics
