Critic Reviews for Cargo

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

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

Oct 21, 2011 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 20, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5

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.

Nov 15, 2011 | Rating: 6.9/10 | Full Review…

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

Oct 20, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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