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
Five hundred gallons of gasoline were used for the explosion in the Alaska airfield sequence. NASA had to be notified in advance because it was so big. See more »

I can see where professional critics may not be impressed by this film. It doesn't 'set the bar' or 'push any envelopes', and no we probably wont see Stealth making any waves at the 2006 Academy Awards. However, I found the film to be very entertaining, and though I'm not a critic for EW, MSNBC, MSN, ET, or AP, I do know that I paid very little attention, if any, to the fact that these damn theater seats couldn't possibly get anymore uncomfortable! My point, the film practically had my undivided attention until the final credits, if only I had more M&Ms, and in my opinion if a film captivates you, pulls you in, and removes your concept of time and the alternating numbness that moves from butt cheek to butt cheek, then its worth the time and money spent. The story flows very smoothly and progressively steady until it's climatic release leaving just enough time to wrap up some emotional loose ends, a quick tear or two, then a final laugh so the audience exits with a smile.
The acting, writing, and filming are all done well and incorporated very nicely so you not only see, but you also 'feel' the film. I wont say its one of the best I've ever seen but I'm glad I took the time to check it out on "The Big Screen." Trust no professional critics, ever, always be your own judge! And if you do need to gain some insight or just some simple straight advice, I always find the user comments here at IMDb.com to be most helpful and trustworthy. Why trust anyone who gets paid to voice their politically correct opinionated BULL, when you can get real thoughts from other people, like us, who simply share a common love and enjoyment for the movies and need no paycheck to share the experience. Always speak your mind truthfully and be respectful to the face of opposition, but most importantly enjoy and have fun, its what movies are for. Thanks to you all and enjoy Stealth!
