CarGo is a 2017 American direct-to-video computer-animated comedy musical movie produced by The Asylum. This is The Asylum's third animated feature and a rip-off of the Cars movies made by GMW.
A young car learns the importance of family when he embarks on a mission to rescue his father, who's been sent to Clunker Island to be repurposed as scrap metal.
Why It Sucks
- As mentioned earlier, this movie is a rip-off of the Cars franchise by Disney and Pixar, which started in 2006, and had a third film being made around the same time this film came out.
- The car puns are unfunny and boring.
- For example, there's a character named "Cabigail", which is a terrible pun on "Abigail" and "cab".
- Poor animation.
- There's a scene where Danny pukes oil during class, which is really gross.
- Predictable and Boring story.
- The scene set in the theater might count as filler.
- The demolition derby scene looks so much like the one from GMW.
- The camera angles can be nauseating.
- The characters talk with their whole bodies moving.
- If a car is old or has a malfunction, they're sent to Clunker Island, were they're taken apart and made into new cars. This is basically the equivalent of taking old or dying people and making new people out of their corpses, which is straight up terrifying.
- False advertising: In the cover, Danny’s dad is orange, but in the movie, he is blue.
- Speaking of Danny's dad, the scene where he gets wrecked by Rudy is very brutal, even for a kids' film.
- The music is quite decent.
- There is an unexpected Sharknado reference that is funny, complete with Danny’s dad looking at the poster while saying "I hated that movie. It was just too unrealistic. A tornado full of cars. Could never happen! They just don’t make 'em like they used to. When I was your age, I was in love with Greta Carbo, and I wanted to be Sean Carnerry.".
- The character designs are decent for a low-budget movie.
- The voice acting is pretty good.
- For something made by The Asylum, a few of the songs are actually pretty good and are sung well (Kudos to Haley Joel Osment AKA: The voice of Danny because he is actually a really good singer.)
