Cargo (English) Movie Review:

This one is a decent zombie movie with a heart that keeps one engrossed from start to finish.It is based on a 7 minute short film by same name that was released in 2013. It is touching to see a father’s quest to save his infant daughter in zombie infested land of Australia. The plus points are well written and acted, perfectly set in various locations of Australia. The movie is a perfect example of how one could make a better movie with a good script even if it is a low budget movie.

The acting is natural and heartwarming. I have seen some good zombie movies like “Shaun of the Dead” or “Train to Busan” and even “Warm bodies”. This one adds to that list of good Zombie movies I have watched todate. The other best thing about this movie is good cinematography.

Cargo is far better than any average thriller as it focuses on the lead character and creates sympathy towards him in that way viewers become interested in the movie. The minus points are not so good editing as it drags at some places. Martin Freeman was perfect choice for the role of Andy.

Antony Hayes performace was good too. Martin Freeman puts in arguably a career best performance in a zombie movie of one man’s quest to find a new home for his baby daughter before it’s too late.

My rating is 4.5/5. Highly recommended
