Film #6 of Scavenger Hunt #15
Task #30 - A film based on the Asterix comic books, animation or live action
"How can you know it's impossible if you don't try?"
I had a kind of half-hearted interest in the Asterix books as a child, so I was feeling a bit of nostalgia whilst watching this film. I have a feeling I wouldn't have enjoyed the film as much if I'd known nothing about the franchise and/or characters. Saying that though, I have always thought of Asterix as the fat, ginger one in the blue pants, and Obelix the smaller guy with the winged helmet. Turns out after all these years that Asterix is in fact the small one! In this he's voiced by the brilliant Paul Giamatti (English version obviously).
Anyway, yeah, not much really I want to add. I think Asterix and co are better off being a childhood memory for me.
