Audience Reviews for Alien Cargo
A lackluster antagonist creatively stifles this coulda-been-better effort as the crew from a space cargo transport discover something amiss in this cargo hold. They had the money to make it, you can see that in the costume and set design. And they had the talent, seen in the camera work, the acting, the edit, the choices made. Somehow though the threat in the piece never translates, the threat implied in the title, and the twist, when it comes, is equally unmoving, so it's a "meh".
Considering that it is only a made-for-TV production (for the Sci-Fi channel, no less), I will concede that it is better than most of its ilk, mainly due to the fact that it doesn't rely on special effects but rather the paranoia between the crew members. Unfortunately, as is the bane of almost all television productions, the script is rather flat, the acting is rather weak, and the direction is workman-like. It had potential but ended up being a disappointment on almost every level. Not worth your time. Skip it.
