A very watchable gritty British action film, based on harsh real life
I went to watch Freight on its opening night at the cinema and ended up going back the following night as well. Freight is a gritty, British action film, based on the cruel reality of human trafficking from eastern europe; the women forced into the sex trade, the men into cage fighting. The film pulls no punches in showing this. The good casting of the cold, ruthless Russian gang members really adds to the harshness of the film. Freight grabs your attention right from the opening scene and holds it throughout. If you watch Freight not expecting multi million dollar, over the top, Hollywood action and special effects, you will have an enjoyable and impacting 90 minutes
