I hate Zombie flicks so I was amazed to find myself totally engaged in this movie. Martin Freeman did not dissapoint with his acting but it was more than just good acting. The combination of beautiful scenery complmented by quality filming and very well thought out script produced something realistic and classic.
Not a horror movie. But an amazing movie (by rafvanhaver)
I love zombie movies. I've seen 'em all.But this is not a horror movie.If you're looking for a horror movie, nope. All the bad reviews are from people who expected one. Fair enough. This is not a horror movie.This movie is about a father, a wife, and a baby trying to survive.I cried my ass off at the end. I don't like drama movies, I don't like pishposh movies. I'm a full grown man that likes his zombies rotten and dangerous.This, however, is not a horror movie, made me cry like a baby, and I absolutely loved it.This movie is amazing. 10/10.Unless you want a horror <more>
A different but entertaining take on Zombie genre (by brandyjirik)
The acting was spectacular and i thoroughly enjoyed the strength and different take of this zombie movie!It's by no means a super fast-paced horror movie but it still kept me entertained and wondering how the movie would turn out in the end.In earnest desperation the main character searches for help knowing his time is quickly ticking away to find his baby a safe place to be.Emotional and riveting this movie delivered itself in the end...and it had Zombies so it doesn't get much better!
28 days since I was this impressed (by stacey-grainger1)
I'm no movie critic, but this movie had everything I wanted and more. Clever, genuinely believable and a stunning performance from Martin Freeman. If you want an intelligent movie about what might happen if the world had a pandemic without lots of unnecessary bloody gore, this is right up there.
One of the best storylines for a Z flick top 3 atleast. (by tkaine3)
Definitely a warm heartfelt zombie flick maybe top 3 ever as far as engagement, acting and pace.. Purely brilliant writing and the cast delivered on all levels. This movie didn't hinge on having off the wall non believable characters which was refreshing it maintained clarity by igniting believable characters and responses from beginning to end.. I really don't have any qualms with this film I think in todays hollywood era we want super over the top action and spectacles but this film gives you action but stays in the realm of reality... I would definitely say make some time to see <more>
I've seen a LOT of zombie movies, and Cargo ranks as one of the few that actually has something to say and actors who can say it. Cargo is well-focused on its topic and thankfully! not overly concerned with its zombies. They're simply the threat, and the movie stays solidly with it's succession of heroes and heroines and allows commitment to pull through. If you're looking for Z, this isn't it, but if you want to answer the eternal question "Which zombie movie will my wife watch and actually enjoy?"... well, then, here you go. I've empirically determined it <more>
Hey, you.Yes,you, stop reading the reviews and watch the damn movie : it's not an Oscar movie ,but it's pretty good.
A zombie film with heart (by brisvegan1971)
I read some of the negative reviews of this film before watching it. I almost avoided it for that reason but I'm so glad I didn't. It's a great film, well written and acted, perfectly staged in various locations of the Australian outback to complement the characters and situations they find themselves in. I felt it conveyed realistic human dilemmas and heart, and brought something new to the genre. Forget the naysayers, do yourself a favour and experience this film.
These reviews are from movie snobs! (by abbyeb97)
Some of the reviews here are extremely harsh on this movie. This movie is an adaptation of a 7 minute short film, was produced by netflix, didn't have a huge budget, and they still managed to create a fansastic film with incredible acting and a heartwarming, if tragic, storyline. This is not an oscar worthy film and wasnt created under the same standers as some of these comments seem to believe, but it was definitely worth the watch. If you want an exciting, emotional story about a parent's devotion to his child amidst the end of the world, give this movie a shot!
