Not Dumb, but not smart either.
21 January 2008 | by (Troy, Montana) – See all my reviews

Aachi and Ssipak is one of the new animated films coming from a foreign country and will probably be different, bizarre, life changing and overall, will be praised by anime fans world wide.

No, not likely. It's actually a new animated film from Korea, out of all those movies from Korea, This would be the first and only one I've seen from the country. It's different and bizarre, in that it's plot sounds something like "Mad Max", with "Idiocracy", "Robocop" and "Demolition Man" all compiled together. As for it being accepted by anime fans, it all depends on if you like the story and animation.

The Story takes place in an unknown future, where all energy is now powered by defecation. Yes, Human waste is what saves the world and supplies it with energy. The people who do this are rewarded with Juicy-Pops, sort of like a Popsicle with almost drug inducing side effects, the people get hooked on them, and everyone loves them.

As the movie kicks off, it introduces the Diaper gang, a group of mutants who can't excrete (How, I don't think is explained or yet, not knowing how come they can't, is a better use of words.) but love the delicious Juicy Pops so much, they hijack tankers carrying them to have them.

Within the first two or three minutes, this movie starts to go from a plot that John Waters could make with Adam Sandler, and moves to something that Michael Bay could make with Adam Sandler as the movie goes from excretory humor to an almost nonstop bullet festival as we find these little monsters, as well as average people want the delicious Juicy-Pops for financial and personal gain, and ammunition is spent faster than a World War II movie as it turns into an all out brawl with a mixed up plot to see what happens next.

Aachi and Ssipak are two poor guys whose lives are horrible, they barely have a thing but their motorcycles to their names. A mixed up plot with a crappy movie director (pun intended), the evil leader of the Diaper gang, the government, Aachi and Ssipak and a girl known only as Beautiful becomes the rest of the plot.

The plot is almost too crude to put into words, and as I felt this movie would go nowhere, it speeds up to an action plot and drops the comedy about 45 minutes in. At 1 hour and 24 minutes, it just about wears out its welcome, but because it drops off the bathroom humor about halfway through, there is more "plot" to focus on, which in this case means, watching bullets fly and ridiculous story to commence.

What does the movie provide to you, though? Well for one, it's not a date movie, it made be animated, but it's not for kids, and it's violent, yet cannot compare to Katsuhiro Otomo's "Akira", but how does it sit so well to be watched by anybody? If you look it at, it's basically another film to be remade in America with some famous actors, since "The Ring", "Premonition", and all these foreign films have been getting adapted to American Audiences, give it to the Happy Gilmore production crew to make a new movie idea.

It also felt like I could be watching the future. How? With Ethanol, Global warming, and other kinds of power for the future, this movie feels like the future to me? 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.

Still, I'm recommending this movie. To who? Well, You have to have a stomach for the plot, be willing to watch something so weird that you'd think 14 year old came up with it, and be willing to watch blood fly and have fight scenes that are so unreal, The Matrix couldn't even have fight scenes of its magnitude in it.

It's entirely inconceivable to make a movie like this, but it has been made, and you know what, it's actually not that bad. Be prepared for some humor that will make you feel like you repeated 4th grade and fight scenes that are simply silly, but it's still a good movie.

I give it an 8/10 Or easily a 3/5.
