Gruz 200

Aleksey Balabanov Russia, 2007

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Cargo 200

Lacks a dramatic focus and it too scatterbrained in its ideology. Cargo 200 lacks sustained tension and never feels like it's heading anywhere. There are too many plot and character strands to properly build understanding and characterization. It also lacks momentum and emotion and is too dull to be a genre or comedic film, while its lack of pathos makes it undramatic. Cargo 200 just leaves you cold and indifferent.
