January 5, 2019
Susie Porter, Anthony Hayes and David Gulpilil are among the excellent supporting cast in an uncommonly thoughtful spin on the genre.

Cargo's big drawcard is its sheer humanity. There's a lot of tragedy on show here, and you'll have to be made of stern stuff indeed to make it through this outback odyssey without a few tears.

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.

Cargo is proof, if it were needed, that Freeman can carry his own movies.

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.

This familiar saga eschews jolting scares for survival-esque (and dark-heart-of-man) thrills, relying largely on Freeman's compelling lead turn to set it apart from the genre.

Cargo is a very strong, at times stirring achievement: a zombie film with soul and pathos.
