User Review

Worst of the three

Rating: 4/10


The first one looked good but just could not get the humor right. The
second one was quite good; close to the sense of humor of Gosciny (and
Uderzo as well). So I was hoping for something good. Now the third one
is kind of terrible. The visuals are okay (yes you see the CGI but it's
not a problem in a funny movie based on comics) but almost everything
else… The humor is worse than in the first one, the movie is just too
long, the cameo-filled last ten minutes seem to be shot only for the
end credits (they just don't make sense in the movie) but somebody must
have thought they are funny enough for the movie – they are not. There
are strange parts meant to be funny (e.g. the laser sword you could see
in the advertisements – if they had to include a star wars joke again
then why not make it at least a bit funny?), even the time between
intended (forced and overplayed) gags is too long. Alain Delon is
moderately funny as Caesar but his part is also overplayed, overly
long. The new actor playing Asterix is a, as high as Obelix… b, never
as funny/witty-looking as Christian Clavier. So what could go wrong did
go wrong with this movie; maybe children will enjoy it but probably it
will be too long for them as well.
