Within the Amazon Prime Video film 7500, Joseph Gordon-Levitt performs the co-pilot of a airplane that’s hijacked by terrorists. The title of the film refers back to the code which pilots use to speak a airplane hijack to air site visitors management.
Written and directed by German filmmaker Patrick Vollrath, 7500 already had its world premiere on the Locarno Movie Competition on August 9, 2019.
The movie appears unsettling and appears to have horror components, by which I don’t imply something supernatural, however a way of terror that Gordon-Levitt’s character Tobias Ellis feels — the helplessness as he tries to cope with the state of affairs.
So don’t count on a macho-man all of a sudden swooping in to take down the terrorists and save the day like so many Hollywood motion films. 7500 is striving for realism, which is sort of admirable.
The official synopsis of the movie reads, “It appears like a routine day at work for Tobias, a soft-spoken younger American co-pilot on a flight from Berlin to Paris as he runs via the preflight guidelines with Michael, the pilot, and chats with Gökce, his flight-attendant girlfriend. However shortly after takeoff, terrorists armed with makeshift knives all of a sudden storm the cockpit, severely wounding Michael and slashing Tobias’ arm. Quickly managing to fend off the attackers, a terrified Tobias contacts floor management to plan an emergency touchdown. However when the hijackers kill a passenger and threaten to homicide extra harmless individuals if he doesn’t allow them to again into the cockpit, this peculiar man faces an excruciating check.
7500 will start streaming on Amazon Prime Video from June 19.
