Did You Know?


The name "Anthony Peterson" is a reference to actor Ron Thompson's dual roles of Tony and his son Pete in the critically acclaimed film American Pop (1981). Producer J.C. Maçek III suggested the name as a placeholder during pre-production discussions on [Cargo] (2018). Writer/director James Dylan liked the name so much that it remained throughout the scripting and filming processes. See more »

Really Over The Top & Entertaining!
30 November 2018 | by redsrabbitead-01345See all my reviews

I felt compelled to review this thriller. It's a concept similar to movies like Locke and All is Lost and Buried. About one man trapped in an impossible situation as he tries to wile his way out of it. Ron Thompson gives a solid performance as antihero Anthony Peterson trapped in a metal cargo container and being held for ransom by, I'm guessing, terrorists. I liked a lot of the supporting voice over actors as well. The insanity and dark comedy of the film at times reminded me of Hong Kong cinema. Certainly not a film for everyone yet if you dig one man movies you'll probably like this one!
