Cargo (2009)

I started watching this totally on the off-chance: it was on Amazon Prime, said it was SF so I thought I’d give it a go!

Turns out, it’s a pretty good SF thriller!

I thought at first it was gonna be a creepy Event Horizon-type thingy but I’m glad it was actually more of a whodunnit.

Top marks for restrained CGI and particularly adept sound design, both of which helped tremendously with the believability of the situation.

The cast were all knob-on and I liked the twists and turns of the story. I had been expecting some kind of dodgy SyFy-channel film but I was impressed with the humanity of all the characters.

So, if you’ve got access to it and you like your SF both hard and maybe scary, give Cargo a go!
