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.
June 19, 2020
The key thing is "7500" refuses to follow a familiar flight pattern and winds up a well-made thriller with brains.

Brutally simple and brutally efficient.

This one isn't a bad high-concept thriller but, as is often the case with movies hampered by undercooked storylines, there's a feeling that something better could have resulted from the same basic plot points.

"7500" shifts from "Die Hard"-style fun to big-time bummer with supersonic speed.
June 18, 2020
Gordon-Levitt takes 7500 as far as he can, but the film still stalls on the runway, unable to turn its limited perspective into something thrilling or insightful.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives his all and then some as a pilot who most battle terrorists while singlehandedly landing a passenger jet. It's too bad this claustrophobic cockpit thriller quickly loses altitude.

[An] exercise in opportunistic fear-mongering disguised as a thriller...

Yet just as Tobias can't escape the tragedy unfolding just beyond the cockpit door, 7500 struggles to overcome some unfortunate and very outdated optics.

Although "7500" - the air traffic control code for hijacking - lacks the real-life stakes of Paul Greengrass' "United 93" or the bigger-budget action of movies such as "Executive Decision" and "Non-Stop," it manages to make the story land emotionally.
June 17, 2020
Gordon-Levitt keeps acting and acting, but for all the height of the stakes, the story is inert.
June 17, 2020
Besides Gordon-Levitt's performance, the only real reason to watch "7500" is if you're desperate for a quarantine time-filler.

"7500" is, at heart, a chamber piece. The setting, the number of characters and the setup are all constrained in an elegant yet dramatically effective way that belies the film's low budget.

Will work most effectively as an answer to the question "Whatever happened to Joseph Gordon-Levitt?" The answer being: "Sadly, this."
June 15, 2020
This is one well-made thriller, and for a director who wants to work in that genre, this is as strong a first feature as any filmmaker could hope for.
June 15, 2020
Slightly more compelling than actual air travel.
