Aachi and Ssipak are two likable street hoodlums who scrape by stealing and selling "Juicybars," highly addictive blue popsicles distributed by the government in exchange for human excrement, the only usable fuel in Shibal, a dystopian, futuristic, post-apocalyptic city.
Aachi and Ssipak hook up with "Beautiful," a blue-haired, wannabe-actress with a lucrative knack for making the Juicybars pile up. Aachi, the entrepreneur, exploits her special talent and Ssipak, the romantic, falls in love with her. Rich in Juicybars, the threesome go on a rock star tear-up that makes them a target. They are pursued relentlessly by both the Diaper Gang, an army of violent blue mutants led by the Diaper King, and the police.
AACHI AND SSIPAK is a crazy, high-octane story driven by a contemporary dubstep soundtrack by Mad Decent with some of the most mind-blowing action scenes ever to be animated.
Story: The story makes sense while you watch it, but if you think about it too much it begins to seem kind of stupid. So my suggestion is don't overthink it. There was one continuity error, but it's only noticeable if you overthink it. The ending is a bit weak too, but I am almost never satisfied with endings so that probably doesn't mean much coming from me.
Art: The visuals are stunning! Have to see it to believe it. The 3-D meshes with the 2-D in a way that no other anime really accomplishes. (For example, the 3-D in "Last Exile" or "Ghost in the
Shell" are good, but a bit too distracting.)
Sound: The soundtrack is really neat, from the background music to the SFX to the character's voices. The only quibble I have is I didn't really like the sound of the opening narrator's voice, but luckily you don't ever have to hear it again.
Character: All the characters are great! From the chibi-SD girl who is the "Chief", to the android policeman, to the Diaper King (who manages to be really badass even though his name is "Diaper King"), to the quirky porno director, etc. etc. The characters don't have much backstory, but, again, that's only a problem if you over-analyze it.
Enjoyment: Extremely high rewatch value. Watch it by yourself or with friends, or both!
Overall: This Korean movie is a weirdly kickass piece of work that rivals much of the cliche'd series that come from Japan.
Lulz……This movie really gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Shit Happens”
Storyline - (Another crazy one)
In the future due to an energy crisis the government has found a way to make people’s sh*t into a viable energy source…so to that end the government enforces a law where every citizen must have an ID chip placed inside their anus for monitoring purposes and to reward people for contributing their sh*t for fuel the government hands out extremely addictive, popsicle-like "Juicybars", which in turn also makes people constipated.
Our two lovable characters Aachi & Ssipak are essentially street punks who rob people for their Juicybars whilst
trying to get rich but through this initial misadventure they get caught up with a violent gang of mutant rejects, a beautiful yet aspiring porn actress and a crazy cyborg police officer
Hmm…..so what’s missing here
oh lets not forget to throw in tons of toilet humor and make a bunch of Hollywood movie jabs
Sounds like a good time to me.
The animation had a hint of the studio 4oc style imo but really reminded me of how Studio Gonzo like to do things where their character designs are purposefully drawn lazily but the backgrounds and surroundings are quite beautifully animated…and that’s where this show falls into.
Not to take anything away from the Korean animators mind you…I’m just drawing some parallel’s
There’s a ton of violence and quite a few cool action scenes which feature a crazy cyborg police officer that really stands out each time he has a scene.
Overall the animation is pretty hectic in terms of movement but ultimately I was impressed with how it all came together to compliment the style of this movie
And hey aren’t those little blue mutants the same imaginary creatures in Welcome to the NHK…maybe it’s just me….@_@
Absolutely forgettable to be honest, and I just finished watching it. BGM is un-noticeable imo and the only standout things are the voice actors who play these zany characters…and that they do pretty well
Well overall I’d say all the characters are likeable in this twisted reality. From our bickering two main characters to the porn director to the entire crazy mutant army and of course our silent but deadly robot super soldier…err I mean cyborg police officer.
All the characters are pretty humorous and play well off each other, so overall I’d say they were all quite likeable
At first I thought this was going to be a run of the mill toilet joke movie with little substance…but to my surprise they kept things going with a albeit crazy but central storyline, funny toilet humour, extreme violence and a bucket load of sexual innuendos.
I found the more I watched the more I was enjoying it!
As far as one off movies go this is pretty good. I mean it’s not all that long, has great visuals and definitely kept me entertained…so yeah…if you like dark twisted toilet humour and can take a lot of violence up in your face……I think you’ll like this
FUN FACT: According to Twitchfilm.net MTV has licensed rights to adapt this movie into a series…..will it actually happen tho..who knows but yeah an English dub would make this particular title all the more better if you ask me…it’s pretty much in the same vein as P&S and Dead Leaves for that matter so yeah there’s certainly an existing fanbase for these kinds of titles….so again I’d say check it out if you like this kinda thing
