7500

Critics Consensus

7500 never achieves maximum altitude as a skybound thriller, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt's solid central performance manages to hold it reasonably aloft.

Movie Info

It looks like a routine day at work for Tobias, a soft-spoken young American co-pilot on a flight from Berlin to Paris as he runs through the preflight checklist with Michael, the pilot, and chats with Gökce, his flight-attendant girlfriend. But shortly after takeoff, terrorists armed with makeshift knives suddenly storm the cockpit, seriously wounding Michael and slashing Tobias' arm. Temporarily managing to fend off the attackers, a terrified Tobias contacts ground control to plan an emergency landing. But when the hijackers kill a passenger and threaten to murder more innocent people if he doesn't let them back into the cockpit, this ordinary man faces an excruciating test.

  • The ending, however, is also the film's weak spot and consistently flirts with Stockholm syndrome silliness. By then, however, sweaty, nerve-shredded and palpitating, you'll just be glad to be back on terra firma.

  • "7500" - the title is airline code for a hijacking - peaks at the midway point and dips slightly in its second half, but Vollrath's construct and his control is never not impressive.

  • Gordon-Levitt, absent from the big screen since 2016′s Snowden, oscillates nicely between maintaining an air of remarkable calm and then breaking down completely, and he pretends to know what all those airplane buttons do quite well.

  • You're never less than fully aware of the gambit, and while it's possible to marvel at the achievement on some level, there's never a moment where the story takes precedence.

  • "7500" is an exhilarating achievement that digs into the utter dread at its core, while reveling in the thrill of sitting through it and hoping that this time, it might yield a happier ending.

  • The key thing is "7500" refuses to follow a familiar flight pattern and winds up a well-made thriller with brains.

Audience Reviews for 7500

  • Jul 07, 2020
    Another indie film experiment, wherein the action all takes place in the cockpit of an airliner when terrorists attack. The crux of the piece is that one pilot is in love with one of the hostages that the terrorists terrorize. Joe Gordon-Leavitt holds the work together even if the writer/director is unsure of where to take his game once the pieces are set in motion. Meh.
