In contrast to most shorts... this has a story, climax and excellent ending. That is the foundation of any film, and this does not disappoint. I'll not re-state the premise / summary, but will point out two (non-spoiler) fun things: they hand you a red herring and then pull a totally unexpected shift. That's skilled writing and makes this short a lot of fun.
The CGI is well-done, acting acceptable and believable, story consistent. They leave a couple of questions hanging but those questions are not essential to the plot line. Professionally done all the way through and well worth watching. I give it 8 stars because it's a fun, excellently-crafted short, but not amazing. If it has any flaw, it's that it's a short. If they'd have made it longer they could have added significantly more plot element and maybe turned this into awesome. But it makes perfect use of the time allotted. Well worth watching.
