Storyline

The Emergency Code for a plane hijacking is 7500: a tense, intense thriller, told from the cockpit. A flight from Berlin to Paris. Everyday routine in the cockpit of an Airbus A319. Co-pilot Tobias Ellis is preparing the plane for take-off, which then follows without incident. Then we hear shouting in the passenger cabin. A group of young men try and storm the cockpit, among them 18-year old Vedat. A fight begins between crew and attackers, with the desire on the one hand to save individual lives and on the other to avert an even bigger catastrophe. The cockpit door becomes a battleground - and Tobias ends up being the arbiter over life and death.

Goofs

At the beginning of the film, when they show all of the security camera footage from the airport, in the lower left-hand corner it is labelled as "BERLIN AIRPORT". Seeing as it is a German airport, the security system would most likely be set up in German, or even bilingual. See more »

A realistic view of an ✈ hostage scenario.
29 May 2020 | by tkaine3See all my reviews

This somber film isn't very expansive with about 15 characters in total and the entire film takes place in the pilot's cockpit. But where this film becomes robust is through intensity from a terrifying scenario. What I enjoyed about the 🎞 is it didn't try and create any false narratives or stupid ideas that most movies insert into scripts for cheesy entertainment value. No the lead character although under immense pressure followed suit with what most people put in that situation would do. Yes I would reccomend this movie it's not a bang bang thriller to fly through on a Sunday afternoon what have you but it's definitely a late-night dramatic flick that moves the needle provoking solemn reflection by it's end.
