Reviews Movie Cargo
Switzerland’s first attempt at sci-fi, and Ivan Engler’s first feature film, Cargo harks back to numerous icons of science fiction cinema – everything from The Thing to The Matrix, and, most notably, Ridley Scott’s Alien. It belongs to that particular breed of dystopian science fiction – where the world is ruined and the human race is living on borrowed time.
Cargo is a competent sci-fi, but it’s nothing special. The first half is effectively tense and engaging, but it loses its way towards the end. Visually stunning considering the budget, but unfortunately, it’s nowhere near original or creative enough to be considered a particularly revolutionary sci-fi film.
