What can be said about a future where the only renewable energy source is human faeces? Sure, you're rewarded with a narcotic popsicle for your 'donation' to the city, but there is the chance that you may mutate into a small blue subhumanoid.

Aachi and Ssipak are a couple of hustler/thugs in this odious world, caught between the Diaper Gang, mutants addicted to the Juicy Bars dispensed by government issue toilets, and the government's top cyborg cop, just looking to get rich and get laid.

The outrageous and kinetic animation style serves this garish and hyper-violent world perfectly. Chock full of anal humour, over the top shoot outs, and many obvious references to other films such as BASIC INSTINCT and INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM. It's rude and crude and hilarious at times, but not overly compelling as a story. It's like having street meat* at 2am, great at the time, but you feel a little dirty, and ultimately it's forgettable in the grand scheme of things. Watch it with your drinking buddies and a few pints for maximum enjoyment!

*Street meat refers to a hot dog from a street vendor, not what you're probably thinking with that dirty mind of yours!
