After another raid in an empty village, the chief of the Vikings Timandahaf misunderstands the explanation of his druid Cryptograf that "fear gives wings to the dwellers" and believes that fear actually makes the villagers fly. They decide to chase the champion of fear in Gaul to learn how to fly and make them invincible warriors. Meanwhile, the nephew of Vitalstatistix, Justforkix, is sent from Parisium to the Gaulish village to become a man and Asterix and Obelix are assigned to train the youngster. The stupid son of Cryptograf, Olaf, listens to a conversation of the coward Justforkix with Asterix and Obelix and kidnaps him. While returning to the Viking village, Justforkix meets Abba, the daughter of Timandahaf, and they fall in love for each other. But the Machiavellian and ambitious Cryptograf plan to marry his son Olaf with Abba and become powerful. In the end, Asterix realizes that it is not fear that gives wings, it is love. Written by

Influenza (or "Zaza", as her family calls her), from the book "Asterix and Caesar's Gift", makes a non-speaking cameo appearance in this movie. Justforkix dances with her briefly during the party in the village at the start of the movie. See more »

Do *not* leave me alone with them!

[Asterix and Obelix look ashamed]
Uh, nobody asked *me* if I *wanted* to be a man!

In the 11-year gap between Conquering America and this a lot had changed with animated movies. As lovely as Asterix and the Vikings looks it does feel like a TV show at times and it just doesn't feel the same anymore.
Paul Giamatti and Brad Garrett provide the voices of the two Gaulish heroes (in the English dub) while Sean Astin is the Chief's visiting nephew Justforkix. The kids is a wimp and a pacifist, and for contrived reasons he'd kidnapped by the Vikings. Asterix and Obelix are on the trail to the rescue and...none of it really feels epic or exciting, and although there is some humor it just doesn't have the same inspired magic.
Alexandre Azaria's score is loud, intrusive, and obnoxious and does not allow any scene to speak for itself. It detracts from the moment rather than enhancing it. Directors Stefan Fjeldmark and Jesper Møller know how to make it look nice, but fail at making it work.
