Animal World (2018) Movie Script

I have fought the good fight.
I have finished the race.
I have kept the faith.
am crazy.
I'm really crazy.
There's no cure for it.
It can't be treated.
This illness
is hopeless.
The cartoon on TV earlier
is called Super Clown.
I don't really like this cartoon.
But that scene of the clown fighting
has been imprinted on my mind
since my eighth birthday.
Ever since that day,
I've got this weird illness.
I always feel
there's a clown living inside me.
Whenever I get emotional,
this clown would jump out.
My brain
would feel like it's drowning in Vodka.
It becomes paralyzed.
At this moment,
the people in front of my eyes turn
into all kinds of strange creatures
and start to attack me.
The doctor says
it's a psychological disorder.
I don't believe it.
I feel that my life
must have some mysterious connection
with clowns.
Because people say
that I'm a clown in life too.
It doesn't matter.
What matters is you keep this in mind.
am crazy.
Zheng Kai-si.
I'm telling you,
if you don't want to do this,
go tell the manager.
Stop daydreaming.
You won't get any bonus
if you fail to achieve this month's goal.
Are you happy?
Little girl.
I have a small gift for you.
-Thank you.
-Here's your phone.
Please give me a few seconds.
I didn't know you miss me so much.
Aren't you really excited to see me?
What are you doing here?
Get to the point.
I don't have time for bullshit.
Go Nicolas Town.
Ever heard of it?
It's in the downtown area.
Luxurious condos.
Private elevator.
Great lighting and air circulation.
Did selling houses make you stupid?
What on earth makes you think
that I could afford a house?
I have a suite that's worth 12 million.
The homeowner is badly in need of money.
He'll sell it for six million.
I haven't told anyone else.
Not even my boss.
But my client wants to be paid in full.
I mortgaged my apartment
and got over two million.
I still need about three million more.
Regarding your apartment,
who owns it?
Don't even think about it.
No way in hell.
It's been years since my dad passed away.
This apartment
is the only thing he left us.
How can I sell it?
It's not selling.
You mortgage it.
Same thing to me.
If my mom wakes up and finds out
that I sold the apartment,
she's going to kick my ass.
Your mom has been in a coma for years.
She's not going to wake up.
What's your problem?
We'll make six million on this deal.
It's a really good deal.
Why did I tell you?
I'm looking out for you, buddy.
You've been taking care
of a vegetable for many years.
Medical bills.
-Nursing fees.
-Stop worrying about my mom.
Insurance covers half,
and Liu Qing helps me with nursing.
You have to think about Liu Qing.
You don't even have money to marry her.
Let me tell you one more time.
We are not dating.
Then what are you guys?
We are friends,
old neighbors.
Then why do you keep her photo?
You think you're too poor
and don't want to drag her down.
Please go figure out your own life
before coming here and talking about mine.
Ms. Liu, how are you feeling?
Much better.
You jerk.
Out of money again?
One thousand.
Didn't you just get paid on the third?
I was late for work a couple of times.
My pay was deducted.
Can you act like an adult?
Yes, I can.
Would you lend me some money?
The head nurse says if we don't pay up,
Mom will be sleeping in the hallway.
Won't you feel sad
if our mom is in the hallway?
Don't call her our mom all the time.
I'm not your wife.
Zheng Kai-si.
I have six patients
waiting for drip infusion.
If you want to act like a jerk,
please do it at another time.
Is Liu Qing there?
Yes, I'm here.
I need a Glycerine Enema.
Okay. Please wait for a second.
Take off your pants.
You help me.
Do you need it or not?
Of course.
Hurry up.
You hurry up.
Stop laughing.
Come out here.
What are you doing?
-Can't you see he's messing with you?
-I know, so what?
This is my job.
Then you should quit.
Are you going to provide for me?
I'm waiting for you.
Be gentle.
Stop hitting him!
Stop hitting him!
Stop hitting him!
-Stop hitting him.
Li. What's wrong, Li?
Stop fighting. See, you've frightened Li.
What's wrong with him?
Where is the head nurse?
In her office.
Would you stay away from Kai-si?
He always gets into trouble.
Why don't you keep that in mind?
Your dad went to great lengths
to get you transferred here.
It's not worth it if you get demoted
because of him.
Ms. Chen.
Don't say that.
He wouldn't become this way
if not for his mom.
He was the smartest kid
in our neighborhood.
Are you still defending him?
Anyway, don't blame Zheng Kai-si for it.
You can deduct from my salary
if anyone asks for compensation.
What if Mr. Li didn't make it today?
Can you take the blame?
Dr. Ma came back from France
and brought you a bag.
Get it from my locker after your shift.
You keep it.
Listen, he bought it in France for you.
Why would I keep it?
Text him later
and thank him.
Get to know each other.
Take this.
I'm not hungry.
I'll have some noodles.
Take it.
I just microwaved it.
It's getting cold.
I have to hand in my salaries
to my dad now.
This is all I have.
Take it.
I don't need it.
I'll figure out tomorrow.
There was a mass food poisoning today.
Some are in a critical state.
That's why your mom is in the hallway.
But Ms. Chen said
that it's only temporary.
Liu Qing.
If you meet someone right for you,
just marry him.
I found him long ago.
But he won't marry me.
Is there an end to this?
You are always the tough one.
Now that you're lying here,
how can you take it any longer?
Mom, ask your colleagues and friends
what your son has become.
He can't even afford your medical bill.
I'm sorry, Mom.
Hello, this is Good Guys Real Estate.
I'm Li Jun, your property consultant.
It's under my mom's name.
Can it be mortgaged?
All done.
Give me the deed.
I'll have another look at the contract.
It's all in English.
Do you speak English?
Don't worry.
My lawyer has made sure that it's good.
Big Shrimp.
If you mess this up,
I'll beat you up.
If I mess this up,
my dad will kill me
in no time.
A pack of cigarettes.
The yellow one.
Hey, girl.
Look at this.
I handmade these.
Please take one.
-No, thanks.
-It's two yuan each.
-What do you think?
It's pretty.
Have a look.
I handmade these.
It's two yuan each.
And five yuan for three.
-Please wait for your change.
-Keep it.
Hello, this is Good Guys Real Estate.
I'm Li Jun, your property consultant.
Sorry. The subscriber you dialed
is unavailable. Please dial again later.
I'm so sorry, buddy.
I'll do anything to make it up
if I have the chance.
I'm so sorry, buddy.
I'll do anything to make it up
if I have the chance.
What's your relationship with Li Jun?
We are friends.
Here's the thing.
He was fired
two months ago.
He stole the seal from finance,
conned a client's down payment,
then he vanished.
Our company--
You are in the wrong place.
Who is this?
Get up.
And go to the window on your left.
This is my wife's favorite song.
What do you think?
Don't worry Mr. Zheng.
Its just a simultaneous
interpretation system...
to make our conversation more efficient.
Now, lets get down to business.
I'm Anderson and the gentlemen
by your side is Endo.
Three days ago...
You mortgage your mother's
house as collateral...
for your friend, Li Jun, $6 million
loan from our company
of the $6 million, $2.75 million
is interest on the loan,
leesion bard can be ford
The remaining 3.25 million...
Two hours and 45 minutes ago,
Li Jun lost it in a casino in Macau.
I'll answer all your questions
later just listen to me now.
The total value of your
mother's house is $2,765,327
Now let's calculate the amount
if you will pursue into
Article 3 of Chapter 5
Oh my god.
According to your current salary standard
you would need to work 4 jobs
and work for 30 years
to pay off this debt.
And this calculation assumes that
you don't need to eat or drink.
Course it also doesn't allow you continue
paying your mother's medical bills.
If you have any questions
you can ask now.
I want to talk to Li Jun.
Then why should I believe you?
I'm so sorry, buddy.
I'll do anything to make it up
if I have the chance.
I don't think your friend has time
to answer your call right now.
Apparently, your friend
can't pay the debt
So, his debt will be yours.
Is that right?
You know I have to say
that you are so lucky
makes me jealous.
You are just in time for our annual
sailing of the cruise ship, Destiny.
In three days, this ship
will set out from Acibom...
Oh shit!
I can never say this fucking
island's name in one breath.
Aracacamacabono island.
Right, okay.
It will depart from this island and
sail into international waters.
There will be many people
like you on board this ship.
You will all play a game.
And if you're lucky
Your loan will be cleared.
If you perform very well, you can even
leave the ship with a lot of money.
Course, if you are eliminated from the game
you have to comply our arrangements.
What kind of game is it?
You'll know when you get on the ship.
You have exactly 1 minute to thnk about it.
get on the ship
Or struggle for 30 years.
What's the worst-case scenario?
Are you going to provide for me?
I found him long ago.
Good luck Mr. Zheng.
I'm going on a business trip.
Please take care of my mom.
This is my mom's medical history.
Bankcard and--
What do you need your passport for?
I told you I'm going on a business trip.
Don't lie to me.
That arcade you work for,
what business takes you overseas?
What kind of trouble did you get into?
Are you trying to flee?
I saw Li Jun the other day.
Who was that man in black?
Is he a mafia?
Why are you laughing?
This is for you.
It's cheap, but it's all I have.
I'm leaving my mom to you.
If I don't come back in a week,
unhook her from the respirator.
Zheng Kai-si.
Can you stay?
If you need money,
I'll see what I can do.
One week.
If I come back,
I will never leave you again.
If I don't come back,
don't waste your time on me.
Just move on.
I can't move on.
If you're leaving,
then I'll wait for you
until the day I die.
Liu Qing!
-There's an emergency at bed 16!
-I'm coming!
Hurry up!
Don't leave.
Stay here. We're not done.
Don't leave.
Leave everything else to us.
Just sleep.
When you wake up,
you will be where you need to be.
This is an anesthetic we developed.
It will help you sleep better.
Attention everyone.
Let me first provide you some information
on the interpretation headsets.
If you want someone to hear you,
just add his number to your channel.
Next, lets talk about the bag in your hand
It contains 12 cards,
starting with the images of
rock, scissors, or paper
Four cards of each image.
Your bag also contains 3-5 pointed stars
Which only to wear on your arms.
The rules of the game are the
same as you always played
watch the demonstration.
- Check.
- Check.
Rock defeats scissors,
scissors defeats paper.
and paper defeats rock.
You win.
The loser will lose one star,
and the end of each game
the referee will put the cards
back into the recycling box
Of course, if both players choose
the same card the game is tied.
And no one will lose a star.
Now above your heads will
constantly be displayed
The updated numbers of the three
different cards remaining.
The game will last 4 hours.
Each player will 12 cards and three stars.
To win, you have to play
all 12 cards in the game
and still possess at least 3 stars.
At the end of 4 hours, you will be
eliminated for the following reasons
First, you possess less
than 3 stars, you lose.
Second, you have three stars, but
failed to play all the cards,
you lose.
Third, you possess less than 3
stars and still holding cards,
you lose.
Stars and cards can be
transfered or traded voluntarily.
So, please remember the terms for
final victory by the end of the game
You possess at least 3
stars, but no remaning cards.
Of course, if you lose your three stars
early on, you will be
regarded as early elimination.
The cards remaining from
the eliminated players,
will be placed in the
recycling box by the referee.
What's with the tiger?
You will find out for yourself
if you are eliminated
and I can only kindly advise you
the result of elimination would be more
miserable than you can possibily imagine.
If you can survive in the game,
your loan will be cleared.
During the game we will also provide
you with another loan opportunity.
If necessary you can apply right over there
But remember you can
only retain a loan once.
which will also accrue
interest by the minute
Here we have no classes,
no countries, no morals
and societal limitations
to bind you
You can all just listen to your
animalistic instincts.
And you do what you need to do.
Okay everyone.
Welcome to Animal World.
Let the games begin.
No! Leave me alone!
Stop hitting me! I don't want to die!
Leave me alone!
Chinese, right?
I'm Zhang Jing-kun.
Zheng Kai-si.
Do you know why there are so many cameras?
We are here playing rock, scissors, paper.
Meanwhile, a lot of rich guys are upstairs
watching the live feed and betting on us.
Think about it.
They got us here from all over the world.
It must've cost a fortune to fly us here.
Guess how they make profit?
They need those rich guys.
This is not the first time I'm here.
And I'm telling you,
many of the players are not rookies.
Everyone has his own purpose to be here.
Mine is to get my loan cleared
and leave the ship in one piece.
This is far out of our depth.
We should get out as soon as possible.
Who doesn't want to get out?
I can leave if I give you all my cards.
Would you take them?
Don't forget it's a tie
if we choose the same card.
Of course,
if both players choose the same card
nobody will lose a star.
By this rule,
if we find the right partner,
we can get off the ship alive for sure.
Unfortunately, most people are greedy.
It's human nature.
Get the cards in the same order as mine.
Scissors, rock and paper.
Divide into four groups.
If you make up your mind,
meet me at Table Six.
Play cards in this order.
Twelve draws.
We will get it done in three minutes.
Number 22 is eliminated.
Last beaten by number 50
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
- Check.
You win.
Number 17 is eliminated
Last beaten by number 19
Sorry, buddy.
I accidentally messed up the order.
Don't worry.
Next round, you play rock
and I'll play scissors.
You'll get the star back.
Come on.
You lose.
You are cheating.
He cheated. Referee, he cheated!
Referee, he...
When that white guy explained the rules,
did he say anything about no cheating?
You can buy the stars back
when the game is over.
Just get your money ready.
You Westerner, are you even human?
I can't accept this.
I'm a human.
I won't let you butcher me.
My money!
Zheng Kai-si.
Zheng Kai-si.
Zheng Kai-si.
Zheng Kai-si.
Zheng Kai-si.
Zheng Kai-si.
Li Jun.
Why are you here?
Where else should I be?
You should go to hell.
You are a liar!
You're a big liar!
Give my deed back.
You have me as your guarantor.
Why did you end up here?
I want to try my luck.
If I'm lucky,
I will win back your apartment.
If I knew what you drag me into,
I should've pushed you off my balcony
and let you die.
I won't complain if you kill me.
But I won't die without a fight
if they try to kill me.
I don't think they dare to kill us.
Come one, buddy.
We are in international waters now.
If they toss our bodies off the ship,
no one will know.
Who will pay back the money
if they kill us?
Are they idiots?
See that mirror over there?
All the eliminated are locked behind it.
They call it the black room.
Everyone inside it
will have a chance to get out
during the last ten minutes.
If no one gets you out,
you'll be taken to the bottom of the ship.
There's a medical lab.
And we'll pay the debt as lab rats.
Who told you that?
One of the guys in my cage.
He's been here three times.
How did you know them?
I went to Macau on a company trip.
I lost everything in the casino.
They came to me
and lent me a loan without collaterals.
But the interest was calculated daily.
There was no other way,
but selling my dad's apartment.
But I couldn't resign myself to it.
So, I took a client's down payment
and went to Macau again.
I lost everything.
So, you decided to con me?
I thought it had to be
my turn to win.
Where does your dad live now?
At a nursing home.
We have less than two hours.
We're not going to die here.
We each have one star left.
We can't keep going like this.
There's no room for error.
We need to find someone
who possesses two stars
with no card.
We'll use one of his two stars
as a backup.
I saw one.
No way.
What if you trick me?
You don't have any cards left.
You have a better chance with us
rather than doing nothing.
I have no cards left,
but I can buy stars afterward.
Those people,
all of them have the same plan.
Are you sure you'll have enough money?
Okay, then.
Show me all of your cards.
I'll trust you this time.
I'll trust you this time.
Thanks for your star.
You lose.
You lied to us.
Stop crying!
You thief!
Damn it.
I'm begging you.
Please don't leave me here.
I only have one star now.
I don't want to be a slave.
If you lose, you are going to die.
No way.
I need to go home.
I have to get off this ship.
My daughter.
She's waiting for me at home.
See, this is my daughter.
Who's looking after her now?
My mom.
My mom has cataracts in both eyes.
She is almost blind. She can't even cook.
What's your name?
Meng Guo-xiang.
You can call me Fatty Meng.
Don't soften up.
He just stole our card.
You're not going to believe him, right?
I didn't mean to steal your card.
I got tricked too many times.
Besides, you got four scissors
and one paper.
Anyone would be suspicious.
It doesn't make sense.
Normally people would keep
each type of cards balanced.
But you have almost all scissors.
What if someone saw it?
You'd become the targets.
He has a point.
-If you tell anyone, you're dead...
Everyone has 12 cards.
One scissors, one rock
and one paper in a group,
divided into four groups.
Assuming that he plays his cards balanced,
no matter in what order
he plays out his first three cards,
he'll play out one card for each type.
If next round
he plays scissors and rock,
and hopes to keep his cards balanced,
for round three...
He'll surely play paper.
Not exactly.
If someone plays paper, scissors, paper,
for his first three cards,
and rock, scissors, rock, for next,
his cards still remain balanced.
Buddy, you have a weird logic.
If he plays the way as you said,
when he has three cards remaining,
he'll only have two types of cards.
You lost me, but keep going.
I copied all your Math papers anyway.
You guys go find someone
with nine cards left.
Keep an eye on him.
If he plays rock and scissors
in the next two rounds,
tell me immediately.
The order doesn't matter.
Go and find this guy.
I'll go get a loan
and see if we can buy a star
as our backup.
I need 500,000.
This much?
We need to be prepared.
We found the guy.
Fatty Meng is tailing him.
Which one?
That guy with a beard over there.
No time to buy another star.
We have to try our luck.
I'm telling you, Fatty,
we share this loan equally.
Do you want to play?
Why not?
Yes, we got him!
Hey, you one star losers
don't celebrate just yet.
This one star will save you to hover.
For a little while,
That's all.
Are you sure we're going to hell?
Dare to go for another round?
-Are you insane?
-Stay out of it.
Are you game?
I have one condition.
I want to play three rounds with you.
the three cards in your hand.
No changing cards.
Kai-si, we don't have to play with him.
We can find other players with nine cards.
That's right, we should stop.
I accept.
You win.
This won't end well for us.
If we lose in the next two rounds,
two of us will end up in the black room.
Can't you tell I'm putting on an act?
Think about it.
Why would he suddenly want to play
three consecutive rounds
without me changing cards
when he saw I have three cards left?
I guess...
After the first win,
I'm sure he's using the balance mind.
This conventional thinking
makes him believe
that the three cards in my hand
must be balanced too,
which are scissors, rock, and paper.
Just now I played out scissors.
So, he believes
that the remaining cards
are one rock and one paper.
As long as he plays paper twice,
he'll win at least one star.
That's why he wants to play
with me three times.
But he could never imagine
that the cards we have
are all scissors.
Whether you get it or not,
don't nod or show
any expression on your face.
shut your mouth.
Having second thoughts?
- Check.
- Check.
- Fuck.
- You win.
Was my explanation of the
rules no clear enough?
I said your cards should be played
out in the course of the game.
This man, he tried to flush
his cards down the toilet.
Every card can be trace.
Don't try to be smart.
Though he still has three stars
is also be considered early elimination.
The game has an hour and
15 minutes remaining.
33 participants have
already completed the game
with 25 of them assigning
the safety area
on the second floor with three stars
there are a total of seventy
people remaining on this floor.
And each person
has an average of 5.55 cards
and 2.8 stars.
Compared to participants
from previous years
Your performance has been pitiful.
Remember, the only way to protect yourself
is to quickly eliminiate others.
Good luck.
Game resume.
We are doomed.
They really dare kill people.
If we lose, we are going to die.
-What are we going to do?
-Stop it.
You are talking too much.
There are fewer cards every minute.
It's now or never.
I think
we should save the money
for stars in the end.
We need four more stars to survive,
but each person has an average
of less than three stars now.
But if you buy cards with the money,
which kind of cards
will guarantee our survival?
Look at it.
Paper has the least left,
scissors are the most.
Think of it this way.
When the game begins,
all types of cards begin decreasing.
They are like three lit fuses.
Three hours later,
the ratio of the cards looks like this.
If the cards decrease in the same speed,
in the time remaining,
papers will be the first to run out.
In this situation,
if we only have rocks,
we could never lose.
That's right.
We have the chance to win much more,
let alone four stars.
We can't do it by ourselves.
No one will play with us if they find out.
We need to find players with three stars.
Ask them to buy rocks for us.
In return,
we pay them and take
all their remaining cards.
That way, they'll be safe
to go to the second floor.
After they leave,
no one here will know our plan
to stock up rocks.
Hiring people to buy cards for us,
is it against the rules?
It has been hours,
haven't you noticed
that there are no rules?
The referee is even blind to cheating,
The white guy only gave
terms of elimination.
Anything not mentioned is allowed.
As long as when the game is over,
we each have at least three stars
and no card remaining in hand,
then we'll get off the ship safely.
Thirty rocks.
Two scissors.
Four papers.
Do we need more scissors and papers?
Shall we buy more?
It's perfect.
What's wrong?
Scottish Black Sheep.
The last Math story my dad told me.
His dad was our Math teacher.
I've been thinking about it
since we began buying cards.
What color is this Rubik's cube?
Three tourists went to Scotland together
and saw a black sheep.
The first one said,
"All the sheep in Scotland are black."
The second one said, "It only proves
black sheep exist in Scotland."
The third one said,
"None of you are accurate."
We should say right here right now,
from our point of view,
that the sheep has one black side.
When we are so sure about something,
we ignore the whole picture.
That's how that dude
lost to us earlier.
He's all by himself.
There are three of us.
At least three different points of view.
That's right.
Three heads are better than one.
Take it.
You keep it.
You have no objection, right, Fatty Meng?
No objection.
We have to trust each other
if we want to survive.
It's about time.
Fatty Meng, keep an eye on the card count.
When there are only two papers left,
it will be our cue.
We have two stars
as backup.
Every time I asked you
what happened on your eighth birthday,
you told me you forgot.
All I can remember is
Scottish Black Sheep.
And scattered memories.
There was someone whistling.
It terrifies me
whenever I think about it.
I have fought the good fight.
I have finished the race.
I have kept the faith.
Since then
whenever I get emotional, I get crazy.
I can't get the clown out of my head.
To be honest,
I can't tell if my memory
is real or not.
Old man, we are running out of time.
You still have so many cards left.
You won't get out without my plan.
You need money for your son, right?
If you don't make it...
-Let's go somewhere else.
Come on.
Something is wrong.
You guys need to check it out.
Papers haven't changed for a while.
Only scissors are decreasing.
It's not the same proportion.
Did you see that?
Scissors go down in pairs.
Scissors are dropping fast.
Too many tied games.
Each draw takes two scissors.
Why are there so many draws
all of a sudden?
According to our theory,
paper should be
the first card type to run out.
We stocked up rocks,
so rocks don't decrease.
The consumption of the other two cards
should not be affected.
But now scissors are decreasing fast
due to lots of draws.
There is only one possibility.
It could be
that someone put out the paper fuse.
Someone stocked up the cards like we did.
They want to buy out the remaining papers.
Kai-si, what are we going to do?
We have to do something.
There are only 46 scissors left.
If we keep waiting,
the rocks we have will be useless.
We can't wait anymore.
I have to play now.
Me too.
Play a game?
Let's play?
What's up?
I'm Luca.
I need 500,000.
Those two guys behind him
are the ones who won our stars.
It seems that
we became prey.
I see that you borrow 500,000 dollars
and just after time pass.
Such a big move
many people here must
have kept an eye on you.
We move fast.
Seeing you storing rocks,
we quickly buy up papers.
Can you sell us your extra stars?
I'll sell a star to you,
if you play me one game.
How much?
400,000 dollars.
I know you spent 100,000 collecting cards.
How about this?
We'll borrow more money,
and you sell me your three extra stars?
We're not here to sell stars
Everybody knows the price will be
much higher after the game is over.
I was worried about
you don't dare to play with
me with just one star left.
So, sell your star as a pickup.
Sell three to me,
then I'll play three rounds with you.
You see this?
One card, just one game.
Doesn't matter if you lose, you win
We are done.
One game
for three stars.
Is this damn translation machine
not working?
I told you I won't sell you three stars.
I never intended to buy your stars.
What I want is to bet our three stars
on your extra star.
You are insane!
Have you lost your mind?
We don't have much time.
We need six more stars.
Any other choices?
I disagree.
I agree.
If it weren't for you,
I would've already been conned
into the black room.
My life depends on you.
Two stars.
Add mine.
Talk to them.
You've got to try no matter what.
What do you say?
Guys, even if we lose we
don't have to die right?
Okay then.
Three stars,
all your money.
If you agreed,
we can play.
Come on.
If you lose,
money is useless to you, right?
Wait, wait.
The game can't be interrupted
after you put down the card, right?
I don't want to stop the game, okay?
I just want to change this card.
What's wrong boss?
I don't know.
Doesn't feel right.
He doesn't feel right.
It proves that my deduction
might be right.
When he took a card out of his pocket,
I suddenly realized
that the total number of cards they hold
must be an odd number.
If it's even,
they could use up all the cards
by deliberating ties between them.
But if it's an odd number,
they need one more opponent
to use this extra card
before they are safe.
That maybe true.
Nothing to brag about.
Unless you know what that card is.
When I stocked a certain type of cards,
I also paid attention to the amount
of other two types of cards.
I need to make sure
that the total remains an even number,
so I can get rid of them with draws.
Two scissors.
Four papers.
It's perfect.
But for the total number
of cards I stocked,
even or odd doesn't matter.
Because I don't know how many games
I have to play in the future.
It might become an odd number easily.
For example, suppose you have 30 papers,
and it becomes odd after three games,
you'll need a fourth opponent
to become an even number again.
When you've played four games
and want to stop,
but someone still wants to play with you,
and you have a good chance of winning,
you'll play again.
The total of cards
will be an odd number again.
Surely you can use other types of cards
allocating stars internally
to make papers even,
and other types odd.
But for you,
you'd rather keep papers odd,
especially when you're competing
with someone who stocked up rocks.
Surely you'll use the card
with better chances.
So, I guess this extra card you have
is a paper you stocked.
Paper. And mine is scissors.
You win.
If you weren't crazy about money
and kept pushing me.
This wouldn't have happened.
Sell me your extra cards.
You could've asked anyone for help
to get rid of this annoying card.
But you're too arrogant.
You just wanted to gloat.
That's why you lost.
I don't care.
I'm safe at least.
You're not.
You really think so?
Look over there.
They sold all the cards to me.
Bastard! How dare you betray me!
Let's work together.
yeah sure.
Give me 100,000 dollars,
and I will give you all my cards.
You should give me 100,000 dollars
and I'll take all your cards.
You're kidding me?
You really think
Without those two jerks,
I cannot dispose all of my cards?
there's full of people
here that want to buy.
Then I'll tell all of them
what cards you have.
Whoever buys, becomes an easy target.
They seem to be
eight papers
and two scissors.
Your friends told me.
Nice working with you.
Screw you.
Go to hell!
Stocking up papers after rocks.
Too bad. It's not necessarily safe.
Those who did this before,
all failed.
I'll give you a star.
Let your stupid friends have the cards
and you can get out with this star safely.
All right. Give it to me.
You have to give me five cards.
Three rocks, one scissors, and one paper.
I knew you are up to no good.
Rest assured.
These five cards
will be used against others.
I will never abandon my friends.
Care to know what comes after elimination?
The first time I was on board,
I was on the brink of elimination.
Then someone had a seizure.
I escaped from the scene in chaos.
That time,
only five of us got off the ship.
One of them told me that
there's a medical lab on the bottom deck.
They were doing genetic tests there.
I swear on my life.
I'm not lying this time.
If you can't get off the ship,
you'll wish you were dead.
Loyalty means nothing
in this animal world!
We have 69 cards in total.
We have 30 rocks, 34 papers
and 5 scissors.
Besides us three,
there are 38 people on this floor.
And 22 of them have no cards left.
They're waiting to buy stars.
Now there are only 16 people
that can still play.
Besides the cards we have,
there are nine rocks, nine scissors
and five papers left.
We'll make our move
when two more papers are recycled.
Let's go.
May I have your attention?
Please adjust your headsets to my channel.
Not many cards are left among us.
Your opponent probably
already knows your cards.
Therefore, I propose
we gather all the cards
and reshuffle them!
This will expose our plan.
Some of you might think I'm bluffing.
All right then.
Let me prove it to you.
No. 57, the man wearing a hat over there,
you have a scissors card left.
No. 7, the man with long hair,
you have a rock left.
The man with blonde hair,
you have a paper.
Am I right?
My card isn't scissors.
Stop lying to yourself.
Many of you bought cards from others.
Those who sold the cards to you,
without any hesitation,
would sell the information to others.
Many bought information from them,
so all of you
are easy targets.
-I'm in.
-Me too.
-Me too.
-Count me in.
-Me too.
-I'm in.
-Me too.
-Count me in.
-Me too.
-Count me in.
-I'm in.
-I'm in.
How come there are only a dozen cards?
The board shows there's more.
Some of you must be stocking cards.
That's why they're afraid
and don't want to reshuffle cards.
How about this?
After reshuffle,
we only play among ourselves.
This will lower the risks.
We're in too.
How many cards do you have?
Three scissors are missing.
You are offered another chance.
If you don't join us now,
you'll be stuck with your cards.
No more waiting.
Hurry up and play.
You asked for it!
There are 32 rocks.
Three scissors.
And 34 papers.
We have all the papers.
Besides the cards we have,
there are two rocks and five scissors.
There aren't that many scissors left.
No time for that.
Play the rocks.
The worst case is a draw.
Don't touch me.
Or I'll show you how bad I can be.
-Don't touch me.
-Losing will only cost you a star,
which you can buy afterward.
But if you don't use this card,
you are dead for sure.
Don't push him if he doesn't want to play.
I'll play with you.
Play with me.
I'll give you two stars if you win.
If you lose, you can give me just one.
How about that?
Are you stupid?
He has 69 cards in his hand.
Surely he can figure out
what card will win.
I've told you.
Stocking cards won't work.
How do you know that I won't lose?
My guess.
Why else would you bet two stars for one?
Are you sure?
That means you know I have 34 papers.
This is the only way I'll win this game.
What are you implying?
Since you're sure
that I have all the papers,
you must know a rock will guarantee a win.
He defeated my scissors
with a rock just now.
-That was a coincidence.
-That was not a coincidence.
This man,
at the beginning of the games,
won two stars of mine by cheating.
Then he tried to trade stars for my cards.
He has targeted his prey.
He won't lose
as long as he has the right cards.
When I refused him,
he suggested reshuffling the cards.
If I'm right,
he cheated again
while reshuffling the cards.
He gave me all the papers
and saved the rocks to himself.
He gave the scissors to his prey.
Those who has only one card left.
Have some common sense.
I dealt the cards face down.
You all saw that, right?
Even if I could save rocks for myself,
there's no way for me to know
who has scissors.
What if you marked the cards?
Three scissors are missing.
No more waiting.
You have scissors, right?
Zheng Kai-si.
What the hell are you doing?
It's like we are playing
with open cards now.
Nobody is willing to play anymore.
Then I'll play it blindly.
Now, I'm the only one
who has all the three kinds of cards.
I'll mix up the order
and put them on the table face down.
You can choose the card I play.
I won't touch them.
Once the result is revealed,
you can flip the other two to confirm.
It's fair enough.
It all depends on luck.
Is it to our disadvantage?
It's paper.
Do you want to get off the ship?
I won!
Who didn't participate in the reshuffling?
We have five minutes left.
It's almost showtime.
Five minutes!
It's not going to help
if you hide in the crowd.
Step out and play the game with me.
If that person really wants to play,
he'll play with me.
At least he still has a chance.
I can give you stars
and make sure you get off safely!
-Just step out and play with me!
-Stop yelling.
There's no such person.
Remember the guy
who flushed his cards down the toilet?
Three scissors are missing.
And now, it seems like
he flushed three scissors.
What a shame.
The board only counts recycled cards.
You've been fooled.
I found that out
when you were reshuffling.
There aren't that many scissors left.
Winning or losing doesn't matter
in a blind game.
The point is to consume the others' cards.
Now, I'm the only one who has the cards.
If you've made up your mind,
find me at Table Six.
I'll be there waiting for you.
I'm safe. Goodbye.
I bet five stars.
You don't have the leverage
to bargain with me.
I don't mind anyway.
I'll just drag the three of you
down with me.
Totally worth it.
You are so familiar
with the cards we have,
then why don't you do the math?
We have 69 cards in total.
In the blind game just now,
we used one scissors,
one rock and one paper.
So now we have 66 cards.
An even number.
If you don't play with us,
we could consume all the cards
through draws among us.
You'll be the only one
who'd end up in the black room.
As for us,
we can still buy stars.
But we may get into trouble
if you play with us.
If I win you with a paper,
we'll have 65 cards left.
There will be an extra card,
which will never be played.
One of us will go to the black room.
-Don't worry.
I will go.
Big Shrimp.
You said there's one last chance
of redemption.
It could just be hearsay.
What if--
This whole time,
no decisions were risk-free for us.
to all the people you have cheated.
I'm sorry.
Slap yourself hard.
-We don't have time, Zheng Kai-si.
-Hurry up!
Too soft. Do it again.
Not hard enough. Do it again.
Harder! Again!
Just get me out.
Do you still have the chance to get out?
Come here and sit.
This seat is for the VIP.
It's easy to point you out later.
Young man!
Did you see a man
in a white suit outside?
You mean No. 29?
That's him. No. 29.
He should be upstairs long ago.
Am I right, old man?
You must have been tricked.
What happened?
He told me
in here.
I can see their cards from behind.
He asked me to come in
to give him signals.
When he has enough stars,
he would get me out of here.
he went to the bathroom halfway.
I can't find him anymore.
You helped him cheat?
Why are you so surprised?
My partner and I
played this trick several times.
Those over there
were sent here by us.
That man said
that cheating is allowed.
So, I agreed to his plan.
But you came in with empty hands.
So did you.
You might not make it.
What do you mean?
You mean...
I wonder if I could skip the trade
and use my extra stars to save my friend.
Did you see that?
He is my childhood pal.
-What the hell?
This is for saving my friend.
-For 200,000!
-Shut up!
Shut up!
We have one extra star anyway.
Just sell it.
Let's rescue him first.
We can't get through without selling.
It's 500,000 for one star, any buyers?
-Sell it to me!
It's not for sale. It's for my friend!
-Big Shrimp.
-I want to save him.
No. 72.
I disagree.
I don't want to save him.
Three stars
worth at least 1.5 million dollars.
It can get even higher later on.
Meng Guo-xiang.
You're despicable.
I made up my name.
The wallet?
I stole it.
I don't have a daughter.
I have nothing except these three stars.
I don't know why you got on board,
but don't you think that these three stars
are our only hope?
Do you really want to give up
a chance like this?
Big Shrimp!
Now I see who you really are.
If you listen to me right now...
Big Shrimp, don't listen to him!
Don't save him.
We can get off the ship with a fortune.
At least ten million.
Ten million.
If you rescue him,
we could leave here alive.
But don't forget that the interest
on the 500,000 we borrowed
rolls by the minute.
Do you have any idea
how big that number is?
Do the math.
Who can pay it off?
Who can?
If you are in,
I'll give you a share.
If you want to rescue him,
you can have this money.
Figure out how to save him on your own.
Big Shrimp.
Go get the stars back!
My life depends on it!
Stars for sale!
Who wants to buy?
Follow me if you want to buy it.
Big Shrimp!
Big Shrimp!
Big Shrimp!
Big Shrimp!
Big Shrimp!
Big Shrimp.
People die for wealth.
It's the human nature.
I'm sorry, buddy.
From this day on,
your mom
is my mom.
I'll take care of her for you.
Big Shrimp!
Li Jun!
Li Jun!
Coming in with empty hands,
you can't even trust your blood brother.
You should've brought something valuable.
why would they redeem you?
You'll die here sooner or later
if you're so naive.
In this animal world,
there's only profit, no emotions.
There's a medical lab on the bottom deck.
They were doing genetic tests there.
And we'll pay the debt as lab rats.
If you can't get off the ship,
you'll wish you were dead.
People die for wealth.
It's the human nature.
You can't even trust your blood brother.
Young man.
Are you all right?
Three stars are worth
at least 1.5 million.
It's 10,000 dollars per stack.
Thus, 1.5 million
requires at least three bags like so.
The money in Scar Face's bag
can only buy one star.
But they'll pay triple to get him out.
According to his theory,
he must be worth much more.
Therefore, I'm sure
he must carry something valuable.
My partner and I
played this trick several times.
It's not the first time
they've been on board.
They must know
how to bring valuables up here
and take it to the black room.
Tight bandage is bad
for discharging fluids.
It limits new flesh to grow.
Airtight environment
will form an anaerobic zone,
which breeds anaerobes,
causing tetanus eventually.
-Are you okay?
My friend recited this every day
when she was preparing for her exam.
To be more accurate,
she is my girlfriend.
Show me the stuff.
Where's the bandage?
-This is all we have.
-Redeem him.
Young man.
Young man.
Young man!
Send a message to my son.
Tell him to change the medications
to cheaper ones
so he will survive a few more months.
And please tell him
that I've tried my best.
Just a call will do.
It's 17310511913.
Young man, please!
-I have fought
-I have fought
-the good fight.
-the good fight.
-I have finished
-I have finished
-the race.
-the race.
-I have kept the faith.
-I have kept the faith.
No bottom line.
These things tried to turn me
into an animal.
No way.
I'd rather be a clown
who fights for himself his whole life
than become a group of scums like you.
The game is yours.
But the rules
will be set by me.
To hell with the Animal World.
don't give a damn.
Give me the stars.
Give them to me!
Our years of friendship
couldn't beat these bags of money.
I will redeem him.
I think it'll be better
if you tell your son that in person.
I lost my dad when I was eight.
So, I understand how your son feels now.
He might not need expensive medications.
But he definitely
needs you.
Young man.
Thank you.
Zheng Kai-si.
You should go to hell.
That's what I deserve.
But I only want to die in your arms.
I have fought
the good fight.
I have finished
the race.
I have kept the faith.
goes on.
And I'm still crazy.
I'm still the clown in their eyes.
I don't care.
Mr. Go to Hell.
Wake up.
Come get the medication.
Just like your father.
