Irritatingly that does look good. But it's got him in it!
I like him in movies. It's a shame about the Scientology. But then he got Katie Holmes to marry him and have his children, so he can't be all that bad... at first :)

Looks something like "Minority Report" crossed with "Screamers". They're both films I liked. I read the original short story for Screamers, and they kept generally to it too.

Definitely one to put on the "to watch" list for 2013. :)

Honestly it looks like a cargo rewrite to avoid paying for the rights to the remake.
Tom Cruise is a really good actor though, personal stupidity aside.

ECA, I honestly never heard of Cargo before. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, even if it might be a movies4men sort of film.

Movies4men is a channel on satellite TV that shows poor quality made for TV movies.

Some of them are excellent though, in a cheesy way.

That's the thing. Some of them are so bad that they're good. I remember watching some terrible sci-fi flick from the early 70's and the production quality was absolutely crap. I couldn't take my eyes off it, it was train-crash TV. :)
The other night they had "The Erotic Adventures of the Three Musketeers" with Ron Jeremy and Nina Hartley. That's a top-shelf porn film from the 80's, probably cut... but still on mainstream TV!
Another one they like to repeat a lot is "Apex", a really cheap looking sci-fi film from the 80's. I've seen better acting from fan vids on Youtube, it really is that bad.

"Cargo" however seems to have decent production value and decent suspense (I've seen a clip now).

I'll still go see "Oblivion" when it comes out. Not because it's got Tom Cruise, but because I like "scorched Earth" stories.
And it's got Olga Kurylenko.
I have a thing for Olga Kurylenko. :)

Mystery Science Theatre 3000, great series from the US that used to take the piss out of bad movies. Basic premise was a guy and two robots are stranded on a space station and forced to watch terrible Sci Fi movies. They ad lib comments and provide some background info, bloody hilarious at times. Like you said soo bad its good.

Yeah. Probably watch despite the cruiser.

I don't like to fund his movies, but I'm a sucker for any sci-fi...

Lots of questions but I enjoyed it.

How is Julia going to avoid getting sexed by at least 51 other Jacks? When they all realise something is up they are going hunting for hot movie stars.

Really? Every opinion I've seen that's not been from here is that it's an absolutely terrible shambles of a film.

Kinda moody, but the 'world destroyed and everything just happens to revolve around leftovers of famous landmarks' cliche has been done to death.

Me and my mates enjoyed it. I'd really love to swim in that pool.

Thought it looked great visually, and that red head is fit as hell.

Visual very nice, not popcorn style, but just very nice.
The story line could have been better I think.

Saw the movie with my son and have to say I really enjoyed it. Good story and a very decent sci fi, damn even TC was good as the lead.
