Af­ter live-ac­tion tur­keys star­ring Gérard Depar­dieu, it’s a plea­sure to see Goscinny and Uderzo’s Gauls back in an­i­mated form. One of their more overtly satir­i­cal sto­ries is recre­ated with much of its waspish­ness in­tact, the plot serv­ing as a critique on gen­tri­fi­ca­tion. Jack White­hall and Nick Frost lend vo­cals to an overly chatty dub that only marginally de­tracts from the bois­ter­ous 3D vi­su­als. Neil Smith
