In addition to Han's writing and script mess, Animal World is still able to appear alive thanks to the cast's main cast. As a person who had a childhood trauma and a life full of various dilemmas, Li was able to make Zheng Kaisi's character seem sympathetic. The public might have lost track of the conflicts experienced by the character, but they clearly would not forget the strength and charisma that Li gave to his appearance. The other fillers in the acting department also performed satisfactorily - including Douglas, who despite appearing in a minimalist length but able to make his presence so strong.

Story: Okay we'll start here, the story-line is very intriguing. I'm all about these smart leads being thrown into games that test their brains. With this movie we also get a character that has had a traumatic past that has caused him to see himself as a clown. The only part of the story that I need more of is this. I see why the Clown scenes happen I just need to know exactly why they are there and why it was important to move the plot-line along. I know the movie is to be continued as the credits scene said so. I really hope we get more of that because the scenes just seemed irrelevant to the plot-line but regardless weren't annoying or anything, they looked visually pleasing. Onto one other thing, I love that the game is simple like rock, paper, and scissors but I wish the entire game wasn't just that. I kind of was wanting more than one round on the ship. I want more to be explained about what happens to those who don't get 3 stars and no cards left rather than just rumors?

Acting/Cast: Brilliant! That's all I have to say here. They were brilliant. I really loved how many races and languages were spoken in this movie!

Music: It was perfect when it was needed and not overly used and annoying. Nothing stood out to me though.

Rewatch Value: While I wouldn't watch it again right away, I could see myself watching it again before the next movie comes out. Or if I suddenly wanted to show a friend or family member this movie. (Which is possible.)

Overall: (9/10)
