Felix Trench (Wooden Overcoats and Quid Pro Euro) and Tom Crowley (Wooden Overcoats and Crowley Time) join Flixwatcher to review The Twelve Tasks of Asterix.

The Twelve Tasks of Asterix is a Belgian/French 1976 animation feature film based on the Asterix comic books. It is the only Asterix animated film (to date) that is based on original material rather than existing comic books. In this film, Asterix and Obelix are tasked to complete a series of 12 tasks inspired by the Twelve Labours of Hercules. If they perform these better than the appointment challenger, observed by Caius Tiddlus, then they would be declared Gods. The Twelve Tasks of Asterix relies very, very heavily on stereotypes (sometimes pretty racist by today’s standard) and it’s humour draws strongly on the Monty Python sketch show vibes. Definitely an “old fart film” appealing to what is possibly now a narrower but still in existence fan base. Scores

[supsystic-tables id=161] At 82 minutes it is just about bearable for the non Asterix fan (Helen), this isn’t a film you watch for a good story or even an engaging plot - it’s more time spent with characters you know inside out and the nostalgia that comes with it. Definitely one for the Asterix fan and less likely to win over any new fans, The Twelve Tasks of Asterix scores 3.63. What do you guys think?
