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
A scene where the UCAV launches a strike against and destroys a high-rise building in Burma was edited before release because the filmmakers found the initial footage too closely resembled the collapse of the World Trade Center towers in the 9/11 terror attacks. See more »
The USS Abraham Lincoln is located in the Philippine Sea. The three Talons and the EDI fly westwards, to Myanmar. It is daylight in the Philippine Sea but nighttime in Myanmar. Although it is conceivable that they were flying from dawn westwards to where it was still just before dawn, there were a lot of people and traffic on the street, which would have indicated that it was early evening in Myanmar.

After the end of the credits, we go back to Korea and see the wreckage of EDI. We pass through most of the wreckage until we stop on EDI's central core. Suddenly, the red eye begins to glow..... See more »
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.
