Astérix & Obélix: Mission Cléopâtre (Asterix and Obelix Meet Cleopatra)
If you haven't read the comic, this movie should inspire you to become one. Although Nicheflix is the best online DVD rental service in the world, it will take too long to rent this movie from Nicheflix. Monica Belluci has a fair share of screentime throughout the movie - maybe 20 minutes worth?
If by "exact" you mean overblown slapstick representation that included kung-fu and dancing to James Brown tunes you'd be right. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fun film which manages to capture some of the comic book spirit.
Ciao, pro-bassoonist It was a total piece of crap I definitly think the Mission Cleopatra movie is better than any of Underzo's recent Asterix books the last ones Michael Corvin Thanks for the input guys. I'm not contesting the fact that the 1st film was crap or that the 2nd one was an entertaining adaptation.
It is however far from "exact" or faithful to the spirit of the comic for the reasons I stated above. Moreover, Asterix and Obelix are almost secondary characters in this film and the only other character you see from the Gaulois village is the druid Panoramix. Dai According to Amazon. No cover art or any details available. The level of severity wavers.

In the end, Obelix always falls back in line. Asterix is a better strategist. Obelix just want to punch his way out of every situation. This week, I think I may take that back.Asterix and Cleopatra (1968) [Eng Dubbed FULL MOVIE]
Part of me wants to start a Tumblr for all the panels of Obelix breaking down the door of a jail. While I groaned when I saw the trio back in a jail cell in Egypt, something snapped inside of me this week and I learned to just go along with the running gag and laugh at how easily they take the situation in stride.
I am, however, curious about it just because they cast Monica Bellucci as Cleopatra. The cover shows two obvious influences. Check out the similarity in font between the two titles, and then the obvious homage in the character positioning.
Buddy Hackett, legendary Hollywood funny man. On the bottom right is Exlibris, the Egyptian scribe who works for Edifis. Did Uderzo really use the same actor as inspiration for two characters in the same book? Or am I just reading too much into things here?

Fittingly, the character of Exlibris, the scribe, is actually being played by Rene Goscinny here. Thanks, JC, in the comments below. You are all reading those, right? Best Names of the Book No doubt the two winners are the Egyptian architects at the center of this book, the perfectly named Artifis and Edifis.
The connection between their names and their jobs is too perfect. His appearance is brief and he is quickly knocked out, but I love that name.
This book is a big step up from the previous one. Ultimately, the good guys out-think the bad guys, with a dash of help from some Magic Potion power, of course. Even when overwhelmed, Asterix and Obelix find a way out.
