Flight 7500 DVD Review
“Flight 7500” is a bumpy ride.
To say much about “Flight 7500” would be delving into spoiler territory, but I will say the story revolves around a rag-tag group of passengers on a flight from LA to Tokyo. Suffice to say, the trip does not goes smoothly as it’s riddled with plane issues, death, and something altogether supernatural.
As you may or may not have heard, Director Takashi Shimzu’s (of “The Grudge” fame) “Flight 7500” was originally planned for a theatrical release, but was later shelved for quite a long time. Now, the film has finally been given a home video release to little fanfare. Truthfully, it’s not hard to see why.
While the relatively short film starts out as an intense airplane centric horror-mystery film, it quickly loses steam. Again, without giving away too much, the story devolves into “Lost” level territory once the supernatural “mythology” angle rears its head. The twist simply doesn’t work here as it makes the film decidedly less interesting and significantly less scary.
As for the cast, Leslie Bibb, Ryan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Jerry Ferrara, Jamie Chung, and especially Scout Taylor- Compton all commit to their roles, but the material just lets everyone down unfortunately.
Presentation: 1.78:1. How does it look? The moody horror film gets a fine transfer.
Audio Track: Dolby Digital 5.1. How does it sound? It does the job a horror film should do.
Extras include a digital copy, Lionsgate trailers, and a short featurette titled “Inside Flight 7500” which contains film clips, interviews, and plot and character discussions.
