Asterix and Obelix Take On Caesar (1999) Film Review


Based on the fabulous Asterix comics that I grew up reading, this French follows the people of a small Gaulish village as they hold out against the invaders from Rome. Aided by a wizard who creates a magic potion to give them super human strength, they are always ultimately victorious.

Asterix has been made into a series of cartoons, but now there are live-action films. Asterix is played by Christian Clavier and Obelix by none other than Gerard Depardieu, and there is a lovely appearance by Roberto Benigni as Lucius Detritus. It’s a fun film, probably a good film for the kids. It does capture the spirit of the comic books, but I have to say that I prefer the comics.
