Audience Reviews for Astérix et Obélix contre César (Asterix and Obelix vs. Caesar)
I'm a huge fan of the comics, and I was excited about seeing this when it was originally released. This film is pretty decent, with nothing too good going for it. I felt that the film lacked the fantastic humor from the comics and that the humor in the film was far more silly, and necessarily a good thing. This film is enjoyable, but it definitely lacks what the comics had. I think that Asterix is not one of those comics that you can easily adapt to live action, and the end result is a film is a decent film that never is anything great. I liked the film, but I was disappointed as well. I just felt like it could have been much better than what it turned out to be. This film could have been great, but it just doesn't have the charm that the comics have. The two lead actors make it worth seeing and there are some good moments here and there. However the film is far from perfect and it's not as good as the comics. Considering that the books are wonderful, there was plenty of source material to draw from. But they only drew from the earliest comics, not necessarily the funniest ones. Overall I liked the film, but I felt that the live action ruined it a bit. A decent, but never anything great, Asterix et Obelix is a mindless film that has its flaws, but is enjoyable enough if you like the comics. The film is worth watching, but as a whole, it doesn't have the memorable comedy that the comics had.
pretty good adaptation of the french classic comic. Caesar's Birthday Gift was funny! As was poor Dogmatix on the torture wheel!
Hilarious movie. Christian Clavier and Gérard Depardieu make their fantastic performance as their title Gaul hero roles. Kids will love it, and adults will enjoy comparing the film to the comic books.
