What could have been a typically didactic message film instead resonates with thoughtful humanity.

Top Critic

The film leans almost exclusively on the focused performances of its two leads, who create a credibly barbed chemistry that goes a long way toward distracting us from the film's low-budget deficiencies.

Top Critic

With the certainty of bad melodrama, Cargo moves gradually into superficial moral complexity, an inevitable display of heroics, and the perfunctory title card ensuring us that sex slavery is indeed a real-life problem.

Suspenseful and captivating albeit not as unflinchingly horrifying as it could have been.

An intense drama about human trafficking and the yearning for freedom.

Cargo can feel like a "film about human trafficking" from beginning to end.
