"Freight"- a film to watch!
12 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I went to see this film when it came out in Leeds on 8th October. "Freight" is a very well-rounded, British film, with some very searching and probing contemporary topics about our country. Illegal human trafficking has never been portrayed in such a compelling way, and provides the viewer with a gripping, edge-of-your-seat, drama from start to finish.

"Freight" is not without humour, and the audience laughed a few times early on...then the tension mounts, as you are drawn into the plot, which is as follows: Families promised the dream life in the UK are smuggled in, split up and then forced into a fight for their survival. A sequence of unrelated events bring "Gabe Taylor" (Billy Murray) into the middle of the situation, and when his daughter gets kidnapped,all hell breaks loose, with "Jed"(Craig Fairbrass) , Gabe's right-hand man, leading the way into an all-out assault to try and get his daughter back....

The film is exceptionally well-crafted, with suspense, heartache, and drama all the way through. It's great to see a British film as gritty and characterful as this, with great performances from Murray, Fairbrass, and Danny Midwinter, who radiates pure evil throughout the movie. Andrew Tiernan makes a star appearance as Midwinter's evil henchman, and, boy does he do it well!

Gabe Taylor's family were both credible and their characters well developed, drawing you into the emotional trauma the family suffers. Sterling performances from Laura Aikman, Luke Aikman, Jean Heard and Sam Kennard, which when "Julie"(Laura Aikman)gets kidnapped, really hits home-definitely a tear-jerker!

Finally, may I suggest that you go and see this film, and if it is not in your area, that you should request it at your local cinema...you won't regret it!
