Critic Consensus: Cargo takes a refreshingly character-driven approach to the zombie genre that's further distinguished by its Australian setting and Martin Freeman's terrific lead performance.

Critic Reviews for Cargo
Cargo doesn't often satisfy on the genre's more sensational vectors. There are no hordes, few gouts of creative gore and a limited sense of danger.
Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay it is that I think George A. Romero himself would have liked it.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Cargo
In a country overrun with zombies, Martin Freeman must find safe haven for his family. Only there's one catch: he himself has been bitten, and so time is running out. It's a nice walkabout the Aussie Outback as we see him struggle against the odds, and against himself. Not bad.
