7500 – Drama, Thriller
Category – Movie – Available on Amazon Prime
Content – A seemingly normal day for co-pilot Tobias and his stewardess girlfriend Gokce. It’s a simple flight, Berlin to Paris. Along with the Captain named Michael, they take off and cruise to their flying altitude. Within minutes, there is chaos and confusion, as two men try and rush into the cockpit. While both men get stabbed, Tobias is able to get one of the terrorists out, while containing the other. The only eyes Tobias has is a camera that shows the outside of the cock pit door and a small ways down the airplane aisle. The terrorists plead for Tobias to open the cock pit door, which he cannot. A passenger is killed because Tobias does not open the door. And they take another hostage, Gokce, and threaten to kill her. Tobias struggles as he watches the men do the unthinkable. And when the contained terrorist gets loose, it becomes pure chaos inside the cockpit. The only question is…Can Tobias regain control and save what’s left of his passengers? Or will they all peril? The real intriguing concept of this film is the cinematography is shot entirely from the cockpit. We see only what you can see from inside the cockpit, which was a very unique concept. This is a gripping thrill ride til the end. This scores a 8.5 out of 10.
Acting – Since the camera doesn’t ever come out of the cockpit, we have to rely solely on the acting of Joseph Gordon Levitt. He is the only person inside this area for the entirety of the film. Since so much happens during this hostile take over, there are so many emotions that Joseph must portray. He has come a long way since 10 Things I Hate About You, and in this film you can tell he has truly grown into an exceptional actor. Score is 8.5 out of 10.
Duration – A simple 92 minutes. The time actually flies by on this one, which is surprising with only one camera angle. You would think you would get bored with this angle, but it is really a unique concept that keeps your attention. This gets a 9 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for 7500 – 25 out of 30
Recommended Watch – Absolutely, this is one thrill ride that should not be missed!
