In the future, all energy sources are depleted, except human excrements. To reward production, people receive addictive, Popsicle-like Juicybars. Aachi and Ssipak are street hoodlums who struggle to survive by trading black market Juicybars. Through a chain of events involving their porn-director acquaintance Jimmy the Freak, they meet wannabe-actress Beautiful, whose defecations are rewarded by exceptional quantities of Juicybars. For that reason, Beautiful is also wanted by the violent blue mutants known as the Diaper Gang (led by the Diaper King), the police (most notably the cyborg police officer Geko), and others.

A very out-there “anti-conformist punk” style movie that pokes fun at consumerism.ART: I stepped on poop- Very distinctive concept in artwork. Everything and everyone have a very humorous / creepy look that turns this feature into a memorable watch.- The characters look like Saturday morning cartoons for kids but are in fact very sinister (part of the whole irony thing). The Diaper gang members look as sweet as the Smurfs, yet don’t think twice before chopping your head off and steal your wallet. The mayor of the city looks like a cute little girl but treats people as roaches. Very funny in a twisted way. A thing I didn’t like was that all the stunts in the film were identical, such as the police officers and the mutants. Almost clones of one another, I found it rather lame. If they were all different in some way, it would truly be a blast.- Very detailed, with a constant “everything is rotten, society sucks” feeling. Even the use of 3D blends nicely with everything else.- Frenetic animation in the least. Nothing seems to be able to stand still for over two seconds. During action scenes the camera keeps changing angles like crazy and the screen keeps getting filled with debris or some poor guy’s guts. It is depicted in a very cartoony way and does not really follow the laws of physics but does its job.- The movie does its worst to be as pointlessly violent and gory as possible. It spares no one in terms of showing a gruesome amount of splatter, blood bath, butchering and blowing up pretty much every setting it features.SOUND: Pull my finger- The original version is in Korean, if you care about such things. Beyond that, all characters have distinctive amd exaggerated voices. The punks sound like the retards they are, the villains sound … villainous and the Diaper gang members sound like silly little critters.- The words “shit” and “ass” repeat almost every 2 sentences, while dozens of other profane words are used. They are excused in such an anti-conformistic story and are in fact used in an ironic way most of the time. Still, you may want to keep the moral viewers away from it.- Sound effects are very reminiscent of Hollywood action films, with some attempts at making some sounds artistically incorporated into the atmosphere of the story. Quite good but not great.SCRIPT: We are in deep shit- The story is practically a parody of idealistic scenarios and action films. Global energy resources have debunked to good old manure, which is why everything in the story revolves around shit and people are addicted to lax popsicles, offered by the merciless authorities when someone takes a dump. Mutants and gang members are stealing and trading with these Juicy-bars, so the whole fuss is about exploiting the system for making easy money … and blowing everything to Kingdom Come… The story is a very ironic depiction of today’s advanced societies and their capitalistic greed … and it is damn funny.- For a movie feature, it packs a lot of events. It feels really long and has good pacing.- There are dozens of Easter Eggs, in the form of references to famous Hollywood films and ideological movements. You are made to laugh at how the animators twist everything highly idealistic into a pile of amoral garbage.- The conclusion is not a solid one but it leaves no unexplained loose ends, a thing most anime fail miserably at. Not great but decent.CAST: A bunch of shitheads- The cast is very funny as sons of bitches. Everyone’s motive is “easy money” but that doesn’t lessen their image as “the perfect idiots for the stupidest idea.” The small time criminal duo and their madonna are airheads but that is excused the way they grew up. Terrorists and the authorities are violent and too extreme at times to feel real but also manage to play their part properly.- Backdrops are weak and there are no redeeming qualities. They are all selfish, greedy, and love being so.LEGACY: Enjoy your Silver Lax, while taking a dumpThe people who made this really had a lot of fun. Never before in a movie was the anus such an important part of the body. It is not famous, nor it left a legacy. The chances of a second view are high if you dig the whole fuss. Compared to the average anime flick it is remarkably different and entertaining. Annoyingly ironic, humorous and different, you may not like the general story but you will definitely love the general idea.SUGGESTION LISTRed LineDead LeavesFLCLPanty & Stocking
