The practical tragedy of the main character and his ultimate sacrifice raises the film above now-standard zombie fare.
October 29, 2019
A simple but effective story about fatherhood and sacrifice, Cargo is a zombie movie that you shouldn't overlook on Netflix.
October 15, 2019
With that brilliant cinematography comes a harrowing story of a father's love in a lawless, unforgiving world.

Martin Freeman delivers a well-crafted performance in Cargo while the story taps into some unexpected layers of emotion. The ending packs a softhearted thwack to your delicate inner organs that is nearly as heavy as the finale to Logan.

'Cargo' does not come to revolutionize anything, but the typical modesty of Netflix productions benefits it. [Full Review in Spanish]

Unlike A Quiet Place, Cargo has more talking. Just like A Quiet Place, Cargo should come with a discount on a vasectomy.

In essence, Cargo is a film about what it means to be a good parent, yet it also tackles far more unusual and challenging themes such as Aboriginal perspectives, white guilt and the potential for reconciliation
February 12, 2019
Contains just enough scares and gore to keep horror fans happy, but through taking an unfamiliar path manages to offer something quite unique.

Susie Porter, Anthony Hayes and David Gulpilil are among the excellent supporting cast in an uncommonly thoughtful spin on the genre.

Cargo is a very solid outing - the type Netflix really needs to push harder.

Cargo is a cruel, wrenching piece of work, if frustratingly beholden to the subgenre's tropes; the film's novel touches lend it just enough flavor for it to linger.

It's a movie about humanity, humility and determination when all is truly lost. It's a tragic road movie with a wonderfully optimistic finale which will uplift you even as it tears you apart. Wonderful.

It's easy to see how one makes a compelling short in this world. Making a feature-length film takes more than a cool concept and themes of fatherhood.
October 25, 2018
Less a scare film than a smart psychological drama on how to handle tragedy with compassion.

[Cargo] offers subtle commentary on oppression, race relations, and environmental struggles set against a zombie apocalyptic backdrop.
August 29, 2018
We still get the zombies, but this time there's more effort at going beyond dining on brains.
August 28, 2018
It's actually very powerful.
August 6, 2018
For all the wonkiness of its character choices, I liked Cargo because it's a movie that says, elliptically, that colonialism screwed up the lives of indigenous people.
June 28, 2018
As it closes in on an unavoidably bleak ending, Cargo fails to generate much suspense, choosing mood and ambiance over bullet-ridden shootouts and violent beheadings.
June 19, 2018
The conceptual contribution of Cargo is rewarding, almost always well matched by its on-screen images. [Full review in Spanish]
