Critical reception[edit | edit source]
Ain't It Cool News wrote "This is a low budget horror film. This entire movie sticks in that storage container. If you enjoy a film that dares to give you every shot possible within a large box like BURIED, SAW, and DEVIL, then I think you’ll enjoy CARGO."
1428 Elm said "So overall Cargo is a suspenseful movie that delivers. Ron Thompson gives a solid performance. You can feel his anxiety and pain (there is one scene where he “tortures” himself). He is the only one onscreen, after all. I would give Cargo 4 out of 5 stars. It’s a short movie with a strong message, money can't always save you!"
Film Threat wrote "Since then, strong entries in the subgenre like Locke and 10 Cloverfield Lane have kept the fire alive. The new indie film [Cargo] wants to join their ranks, but within the first minute, it’s clear that its contents should be left to suffocate and die."
Rue Morgue said "If [CARGO], was a five-minute short film, I’d recommend a watch with a drunken batch of friends, but as a feature. . . Well, I’ve already labeled the movies it borrows from, so just watch those instead."
