7500 movie review: Joseph Gordon-Levitt hits it out of the park in harrowing hijacking thriller, out on Amazon Prime

7500 movie review: Unfolding in real-time and restricted entirely to a cockpit of a hijacked plane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Amazon Prime film is a harrowing thriller.

It’s a shame that all of 7500, the new thriller on Amazon Prime Video, couldn’t be as clever as its premise. Unfolding essentially in real-time, director Patrick Vollrath’s debut feature is a one-man show, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a pilot whose flight gets hijacked.

We’ve seen plenty of air-bound thrillers in recent years as the claustrophobic setting lends itself well to Hitchockian drama. Vollrath’s big creative gimmick in 7500 — that’s the emergency transponder code for a hijacking, by the way — is to restrict the action to the cockpit. It’s a truly ambitious move, because as any sane storyteller would tell you, the real drama lies among the passengers.
