Alien Cargo

1999 | Thriller | Science Fiction | Feature | More info on IMDb


Pretty decent, under-rated sci-fi movie!

It's really pretty good. The problem with a lot of sci-fi pictures today is that they fail to create a believable fantasy world. Bad sci-fi flicks suffer from gaping plot holes or scientific impossibilities that anyone who paid attention to 4th grade science could figure out. This film doesn't suffer from such ailments. The writer and director painted a believable picture of a future where humans live on Earth, Mars, and mine the moons of Saturn and interplanetary shipping of cargo is a high pay / high risk job. The two lead characters awake from hyper-sleep 10 months past their scheduled date only to discover that the ship has been ravaged by the two members of the previous shift... both of whom are missing. The suspense starts from there continues to build for remainder of the film. It was pretty suspenseful flick. A lot of that is due to excellent acting jobs by Missy Crider (Frailty, Powder, the TV series The Others) and Jason London (The Rage: Carrie 2, Safe Passage) and a script by Carla Jean Wagner that didn't sacrifice accuracy for an abundant amount of official sounding techno-babble. Put the acting and writing together and you actually end up caring about the lead characters. If this movie a larger budget for props and special effects, it could have ranked up there with films like Alien, or Blade Runner. The ending isn't typical, which only adds to the class of this film.

A clever outer-space-mystery, and no scream-and-run-alien-copy film!

An intelligent SciFi movie, very well done!
Surprisingly intelligent unhackneyed script for a somewhat familiar space subject!
Sexy post-adolescents in space!

The best made for Sci-Fi channel movie I've seen!

This movie was a refreshing scent into the Sci-fi genre!

Director: Mark Haber Stars: Jason London, Missy Crider, Simon Westaway
