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

I really enjoyed Stealth. I watched it when I was in the mood for a movie I didn't have to think too much about. I was rewarded with a roller-coaster of a movie.
Yes, i know that the aeroplanes in the film wouldn't fly, it isn't realistic, and all of the other comments I have heard about it's authenticity. However, planted in the film (i know they are not mentioned much), but there are some valid issues about the use of unmanned war machines, and detaching the horror of war from war, essentially making it more morally acceptable.
To be honest, when you watch a Rob Cohen film, you really shouldn't be expecting Oscar winning stuff. You should expect entertainment, and this film delivers.
