Storyline

In the near future, the Navy develops a fighter jet piloted by an artificial intelligence computer. The jet is placed on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific to learn combat manuevers from the human pilots aboard. But when the computer develops a mind of its own, it's the humans who are charged with stopping it before it incites a war... Written by austin4577@aol.com

Trivia

For most of the flight scenes, the artists at Digital Domain used "EnGen" (Environment Generator) to create the virtual landscapes. An earlier version of the program, called "Terragen", is on-line available for free. See more »

Goofs

Although the aircraft carrier is identified as the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) early in the movie, and initial action is indeed on the Lincoln, subsequent scenes are on both the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) and the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) as indicated by the large "68" and "70" on the flight deck and island structure.

'Short Circuit' meets 'Top Gun'.
11 December 2010 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

'Short Circuit' meets 'Top Gun' in Rob Cohen's CGI-packed action-fest Stealth, in which a trio of ridiculously attractive elite US fighter pilots (Josh Lucas, Jamie Foxx and Jessica Biel) must do battle with the latest in aeronautical warfare technology—an Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV), flown by a computer called EDI, which goes haywire after it is struck by lightning.

Tearing out of the stratosphere at Mach Impossible to blast the crap out of anything that looks even the slightest bit foreign, the hi-tech aircraft in this film are about as stealthy as a herd of stampeding fluorescent pink elephants blowing vuvuzelas; they sure are cool looking though, and provide action fans with plenty of moments of spectacular mid-air madness, Cohen's virtual camera whipping in and around the state-of-the-art aircraft with as much speed and agility as the planes themselves.

Anyone looking for realism need not apply (the film's corny plot is about as believable as an email from a Nigerian businessman), but with endless huge explosions, a psychotic A.I. jet plane, Foxx ploughing into the side of a mountain, and gorgeous Jessica Biel in a bikini, those after some slam-bang, big-budget popcorn trash to give the old brain cells a rest could do a lot worse than Stealth.

6.5 out 10, rounded up to 7 for IMDb.
