Trivia

Producer Kristina Ceyton said of this film: "The decision to shoot in South Australia was based on various factors...First and foremost, we had such a fantastic experience on The Babadook (2014), with great support from the SAFC [South Australian Film Corporation]. We had access to outstanding facilities, including the Adelaide Studios, and the crew and industry partnerships formed in SA [South Australia] have endured...For Cargo (2017), the landscapes are so central to the power of this story and the directors' vision, we all felt very strongly that South Australia's diverse and stunning outback locations would add beautifully to the film's screen impact...We are really excited about bringing our next, bigger production to the State."

Wow, Pretty Darn Good
18 May 2018 | by neener3707See all my reviews

When I saw the trailer I was a little weary about this film. I wasn't sure if it would suck like many other indie epidemic survival movies that have been released in the last 5 years. But thankfully I was not right, this film was very good and not your typical infection film. Its about a couple and their infant child dealing with the end of civilization, where a massive epidemic sweeps across the land. I found this to be less about the disease and more about the relationship between parent and child, and the parent doing absolutely anything to help there baby. This really comes through in the film, you really feel the desperation and love, that often is very intense. Very emotional and had me on the edge of my seat a few times. Not to mention the great acting that only adds to the intensity of any given scene. I've always loved Martin Freeman, another great performance from him.

The cinematography is absolutely wonderfully done, and is complemented by the beautiful Australian outback. Whoever did the location scouting for this deserves more than A+. You could almost feel the heat, the thirst, the dryness. I cant describe how well the film portrays helplessness and desperation in such times as a massive epidemic, the emotions come through perfectly. I felt connected to the characters, as little as they are, and I was interested until the end of the film. I also worried it may become too slow, but even in the "slow" parts were interesting and kept me invested in the story and characters. I really was surprised how much I liked this film, it was a welcome change of pace from the typical Walking Dead rip-off junk.

Watch it.
