Storyline

A fisherman and his little alien pet go fishing on a desolate barren planet somewhere in the galaxy. With his gear he digs a hole in the crust up until the magma shows up. Now the fishing can start, some bait, and down the mechanical fishing rod goes. It won't take long until something eats the bait. But what kind of fish is this? One thing we know for sure: it doesn't want to get caught. Not at all. Written by Arnoud Tiele (zelva@tiele.nl)

Hooking The Big One
3 September 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is fishing in the 54th century, I guess, or "Tremors" on another planet, or some combination of the two.

It's very "sci-fi," very futuristic as we see a big, macho guy in his fancy rig on some desolate, rock-filled planet do his version of "fishing." He hooks the big one and it takes he and his pet dog-like creature on one wild ride along the rocky surface. When the "fish," finally emerges from the underground, you'll know what I mean about the reference to the film "Tremors."

There are no laughs in this animated short, but the graphics are excellent and it keeps you riveted to the screen for the full nine minutes. This is fishing like you've never seen it!

P.S. I didn't quite understand the ending but I don't think the story is going to capture most viewers, anyway, just the art and the action-packed sequences which will keep you wondering what exactly is beneath the earth that is so strong! Lovers of science fiction (and pets) should enjoy this.
