Cargo | Ratings & Reviews

"Often when it seems like there’s nowhere for zombie movies to go, a little out-of-left-field film comes along to prove you wrong, squeezing a smidgen more life out of the genre’s exhausted conventions. Aussie epidemic pic Cargo does just that: injecting bracing, subtle layers into long-established flesh-munching lore while not completely reinventing anything."

"This familiar saga eschews jolting scares for survival-esque (and dark-heart-of-man) thrills, relying largely on Freeman's compelling lead turn to set it apart from the genre."

VarietyVariety

"A zombie film with soul and pathos."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Pitting Martin Freeman against the undead in the Australian outback, Cargo may take a bite out of a teeming genre, but it does so with heart, smarts and some weighty matters on its mind."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Co-directors Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke (the latter of whom wrote the screenplay) sacrifice some tension with their more character-based approach, but the cumulative effect is emotionally powerful."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Who’d have thought that the secret to new life would be to inject a little humanity into the old shambling corpse?"

FilmInkFilmInk

"The Australian setting brings a fresh, and epic, quality to this now done-to-death genre, and the directors introduce a few nice new kinks to the zombie mythology."
