June 19, 2018
The conceptual contribution of Cargo is rewarding, almost always well matched by its on-screen images. [Full review in Spanish]
June 14, 2018
The film's best feature is a fundamental respect for humanity in all its gross forms.
June 14, 2018
Cargo injects bracing, subtle layers into long-established flesh-munching lore while not completely reinventing anything.
June 14, 2018
It takes some time for Cargo to find its heart, but once it does it grips you.
June 14, 2018
Proficiently directed by Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling, with some haunting cinematography and great editing, the story really moves across the jagged, threatening landscape.
June 13, 2018
Amidst nearly relentless peril, directors Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke manage to carve out some deeply tender moments, putting an intriguing spin on the zombie genre at the same time.
June 13, 2018
Sinks its teeth into the undead basics, and yet still manages to carve out its own territory rather than mindlessly following the masses.
June 11, 2018
Metaphors aside, Cargo has an exceptional contribution from the director of photography Geoffrey Simpson (Oscar and Lucinda), who knows how to capture the nature and desolation of the Australian open horizon. [Full review in Spanish]

Original zombie movie with heart; violence, language.

"Cargo" also uses the zombie genre to comment on the human condition, in particular the exploitation of native populations.

It's like the film-makers have deliberately not embraced the ludicrous potential of the subject matter and there is thus an awkward tension between its sombre tone, the absurdity of its premise, and the flatness of its cliched narrative.

May 29, 2018
Reminding one of 1970s Australian horrors and Kiwi man-alone movies, Cargo... is an evocative, provocative tale.
May 29, 2018
Achieves what was once thought impossible: a unique and original zombie movie, filled with humanity and depth to go along with plenty of terrific scares.
May 24, 2018
An apocalypse film of unusual subtlety and suspense.
May 24, 2018
It can't entirely shake the familiarity of what is being explored, but there's more than enough storytelling ingenuity on display to warrant your attention.
May 22, 2018
While its Australian setting is a bit of a deviation, Cargo adds little more to the formula concocted by Romero back in the '60s and '70s.
May 21, 2018
Beyond a nod to fracking and the clash between aborigines and Westerners, Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling hardly bring anything new to the genre. [Full review in Spanish]
