Aachi and Ssipak is a crazy ass film. It is very faced paced and surprisingly funny. It’s actually a new animated film from Korea, that follows two poor guys whose lives are horrible, they barely have a thing but their motorcycles to their names. This is not for kids and not for folks who can’t take satire and black humor that lives somewhere between the bottom of the toilet and the sewer. Fair warning: this movie never apologizes for where it goes.
Hope this wont take away anyones appetite watching it, because this is a movie with lots of black humor, beautifully graphics, lots of action. The good guys are violent hoodlums who want to get rich by selling drugs on the black market, the bad guys are the diaper gang, the police is the tyrannic force in the city. The power source of the future is human feces. And the state collects it and rewards the people with addictive juicy bars. I havent even touched on the craziest thing. May I introduce cyborg police officer Geco. He is like Robocop, defying the laws of physics, mainly with unlimited ammo usage. heir anti-heroic struggle against overwhelming odds to control the unlikely source of energy in their bizarre world should be an inspiration to entrepreneurs everywhere.
In an animation so concerned with faecal matter and the anus, there’s not much subtext to be gleaned from its fascination with butts other than its producer’s willingly gleeful lapses into iniquity. Also, the biggest deterent for most people is the religious aspects of the film. What is it, if not satanic material that goes at the beginning of the cartoon? Quite possibly, the creators of this “new-wave entertainment” are the followers of some satanic cult because a more a less normal person (even an atheist) would have never used such provoking images in a film and would have never promoted this kind of “pop-art” so fiercely. So, if you like poop and satanism, and are in love with sex & prostitution, go for it! You’ll love this one.
All in all, this is an entertaining film, because I didn’t take anything serious or to heart. If you found anything I said offensive, it would be best to say away. The animation quality is pretty good. However it isn’t enough to cover-up the faults. I believe the producers could have made a better film if they spent a little longer in contemplation and creativity. But, what IS there, is passable and I had fun, what can I say? Yes. I can’t imagine we aren’t much farther away from using defecation for something in society, just have to find a scientist who says it’s a great alternate fuel source or something to believe it. Until then, we have….this film to go by. Enjoy!
