In a world where oil has run dry, in a country where the government robs its citizens of hope, in a land where freedom is a four letter word, there is one substance more valuable than gold: your poo. A vertiginous slide down a swirling toilet bowl of bad taste, AACHI & SSIPAK is a deliriously detailed, over-the-top animated sci fi thriller 8 years in the making. If Michael Bay and John Waters were forced to make a cartoon together, it would be AACHI & SSIPAK. A series of exhilarating action setpieces that leave Jackie Chan and Steven Spielberg in the dust, it dishes out massive action scenes so hyper-detailed they take your breath away. Not since the animated anti-authoritarian head trips of Ralph Bakshi has a movie done so much so quickly: within the first reel it’s dispensed more ultra-violence than a thousand action films, annihilated all boundaries of good taste and bent numerous intellectual properties (like Batman) over the table and violated them so gleefully they may never recover.
