7500 operates as pure distraction - something to watch in the background without too much focus.

A kidnapping... used as a crutch to present an American hero who comes out of nowhere. Doesn't the story sound familiar? [Full review in Spanish]

It's a taut thriller when it's in the air, and a dud when it's on the ground.
June 26, 2020
But as much as it pains me to lean on such a fitting cliché, 7500 can't stick that landing. Eventually Vollrath wanders into distressingly melodramatic territory that sucks away any tension like the plane's windows had been shattered mid-flight.

Because according to 7500, even wine-sipping, Second Amendment-bereft Europeans will eventually rise to their own defense.

The real problem comes when things move from questionable cliche to questionable taste.
June 23, 2020
7500 skillfully squeezes its protagonist, and Gordon-Levitt proves compelling enough in the more demanding moments, but to what end? Sometimes when you hit the bottle of mustard enough times, you just discover that it's empty.
June 22, 2020
"7500" hits a fever pitch about halfway through and stays there, with lots of screaming and bloody violence.

It's not dynamic enough to be a great action movie, and not convincing enough to be a good drama.

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.

Calling it snail-paced would be insulting to snails.

As a matter of procedure you don't want to let hijackers into the cockpit, but when it's up to Tobias, he's endangering his passengers for nothing.

While Vollrath establishes some visual tricks, such as containing action sequences to the locked cockpit and a monitor showing black-and-white glimpses of mayhem in the cabin, his movie ultimately does not add up to enough hold-your-breath moments.
June 19, 2020
If it wasn't for the sloppy, predictable final stretch, 7500 might've made a deeper impact.
June 19, 2020
The shocks are all sluggishly drawn out and not very exciting or surprising - rather, they feel too convenient, and, dare I say, at times, almost expected.
June 19, 2020
But despite the clever setup for this (almost) single-setting B-movie, some half-baked plotting and unfortunate stereotyping keep 7500 grounded.
June 19, 2020
Director Patrick Vollrath aims high with his first feature length film, but doesn't quite succeed in driving home a compelling film despite the competent performances of all those involved.
June 18, 2020
[T]his night flight of a movie lands in an unsatisfying middle ground between a no-nonsense thriller and a movie that's trying for more.
June 18, 2020
Cobbles together two reliable cinematic subgenres -- the disaster film and the gimmick film -- and adds in a healthy dose of pretension in the hopes of distracting viewers from how hollow and reductive the whole thing ultimately proves to be.
June 18, 2020
"7500" shifts from "Die Hard"-style fun to big-time bummer with supersonic speed.
