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

The hi-rise bldg that is blow-up by the bomb is supposed to be in Rangoon Burma. But since scenes of the movie were shot in Thailand and they had a Thai staff, the building was actually CGI-ed in on the west side of the highway leading from downtown Bangkok to the old airport at Don Muang. Watch the cars on the nearby highway. They are driving on the wrong side of the road. Thailand follows the British style of driving on the left. Although they were (and likely because they were) a British colony, Burma followed that style for decades, but a few years ago (in a statement of independence) they flipped the entire roadway system to drive on the right.

[as Wade, Gannon, and Purcell are running out to their jets]
I'm out first, boys.
Lt. Henry Purcell:
I'm on that ass!

After you, ladies.

If there are any burgeoning film buffs out there with the naivety of an acorn, STEALTH the movie might be amusing to them. But it would take a complete novice to the world of films not to see the formulas of the past all present in this offering. The movies of the fifties, had a standard formula for entertainment and this picture uses them all. The only novelty to this film is the complete lack of originality. The mad scientists' (Richard Roxburgh) role who creates the monster (AI aircraft), has been updated to make him and his monster more benign. It's really not his fault and he has a lawyer/congressman to prove it. The role of bumbling Igor or disposable character is updated to cool, cocky, but sympathetic air wing fighter partner, (Jamie Foxx) The handsome and rugged jungle adventurer, is now the handsome and talented (Josh Lucas) Jet Fighter Pilot. He has all the originality of a bus ticket. The only different characteristic our modern hero possesses is that instead being suave and debonair, he is mentality adroit, physically combative and corrosively abusive of command. Finally, there is the ever present Scientists' daughter, (Jessica Biel) who's been transformed into the token female pilot, who traditionally is plunged into danger, time and time again. Curiously audiences know she won't ever die but will eventually be rescued by the hero. In the classic movie, the girl was helpless and forever screaming, she is now updated to buxom, bikini wearing all American sweetheart. All in all, a formula movie if ever there was one. *
