"The Emo Zombie wave is here, and Cargo is one of the best entries, with Martin Freeman powering the drama as a father searching the Australian outback for a safe haven that will take his infant daughter - and he's only got 48 hours to do it before he, too, becomes a flesh eater. Cargo hits a lot of familiar zombie tropes (end of the world, dramatic acts of self-sacrifice, morally bankrupt people turning into savage opportunists when society falls) but directors Yolanda Ramke (who also wrote the screenplay) and Ben Howling add enough fresh details to make their zombiepocalypse stand out. And thanks to an excellent lead turn from Freeman, it's also touching enough to leave you in tears".
