Editorial Reviews

From the director of XXX and The Fast and The Furious comes an exhilarating epic blockbuster starring Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Academy Award(r) Winner Jamie Foxx (Best Actor, RAY, 2004). Breathtaking from take-off, it thrusts you in the cockpit, hits Mach 5 and never looks back. Henry, Ben and Kara are hands down the world's best tactical fighter pilots. But a new member joins their team, a state-of-the-art, fully-automated, pilotless, super stealth warplane - inhuman and invincible. But once this stealth goes up it's never coming down, wreaking destruction in seconds across the globe, leaving the team with one last no-fail mission: to stop it - no matter what.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just leave your mind at the door for two hours and enjoy February 20, 2006
Format:DVD
Stealth is one of those summer action flicks that has leave-your-brain-at-the-door written all over it. It's really a simple and mindless fun action movie that delivers on the premise of ultra hi-tech weapons (mainly all the futuristic warplanes) piloted by great looking people and lots and lots of explosion. Rob Cohen directs from a script by W.D. Richter that is point for point something that Michael Bay has made a living on. Rob Cohen is not a rookie when it comes to mindless, action fun since he's also directed Fast and the Furious and xXx. He knows what the teenage and young male demographic likes and caters to them. This mans that Stealth is not something that will receive much critical acclaim but then its not made to be.

The plot written by W.D. Richter is simple enough. Trio of hotshot pilots (played by Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx) tests new futuristic warplanes for the Navy with all the requisite action movie repartee. They're soon joined by a fourth wingman who is actually a flying computer with a HAL9000 complex and even sounds like HAL but with a penchant for hard rock music. They're all commanded by a commander (Sam Sheppard) whose agenda may not be as altruistic and honorable as the military requires from all its officers. The HAL9000 wanna-be gets all haywired and all hell breaks loose. That pretty much sums up the basic plot of the movie. Just add gratuitous destruction and explosion with music seemingly lifted from any number of Michael Bay movies then stir the pot. I swear I thought I heard a few soundtrack pieces from The Rock and Pearl Harbor in Stealth.

There's really not much to say about the acting in the movie other than its pedestrian and good enough for the type of film Cohen and company were making.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2001 meets Top Gun January 24, 2006
Format:DVD
A trio of the best the US air-force have to offer are selected for a special mission - to fly with an experimental AI stealth jet. A lightning-strike later and the AI goes whacky, breaking loose all hell.

Okay, so this is more Top Gun than 2001 - hammy acting, a cliched script and plot-holes aplenty - but this movie should not be underestimated.

Any seasoned fan of the action genre should have little trouble predicting the plot frame-for-frame for the first hour, and will be quite content - as I was - to ooh and aah at the pretty pictures and flashy effects (not to mention Jessica Biel in a bikini).

But then, all of a sudden, something unexpected happens. There's a plot twist! And rather an interesting one (albeit within the regular themes of what it means to be 'alive', how far are those in power willing to go to further their own ends and finding friends in the most unusual places). The results aren't exactly innovative or thought-provoking, but it's nice that they tried and it certainly justifies the latter hour.

On the technical side of things, the special effects are superb and the action sequences are well choreographed and exciting, with some imaginative exploitation of the completely unrestricted 'camera'. The actors' performances are nothing of merit, but good enough in the context of the movie and there are some pretty stonking tunes on the soundtrack.

All in all, Stealth is very entertaining and well worth a Saturday night in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Top Gun for the new century??? August 5, 2005
First of all, this is a popcorn, get-their-butts-in-the-seats, summer entertainment movie. It's not something worthy of Oscar consideration; nor is it intended to be an "art-house" or serious-minded film. I went into the theater fully expecting to see explosions, loud sound fx, and generic performances from the cast. Yes, Josh Lucas and Jamie Foxx waste their talents. Yes, Jessica Biel is little more than eye candy. Yes, the dialogue is horrible and contrived. However, I was also entertained. The three leads do their best with the clunky dialogue and situations; but don't hang them out to dry for it. They didn't write it, and from interviews and articles I've read, the director, Rob Cohen, put the kibbosh on the actors trying to add depth to their characters. In fact, Cohen apparently told Lucas that to be an action hero, you don't need to think or wonder what's the motivation behind the lines or situations. I think with a better script and direcor, Josh Lucas will become a sought-after leading man in Hollywood. I look forward to seeing him in Glory Road this winter. Overall, I think he does a good job with the material he's given, and I did identify with his character as the lead hero, especially when he goes off to rescue Jessica from behind enemy lines in North Korea. Some people are upset that Jamie Foxx's character is killed off halfway through the movie (sorry for that spolier) but like Goose in Top Gun, one of the buddies has to be sacrificed. Yes, the EDI plane concept is reminiscent of HAL9000 from 2001, although EDI has a "change of heart" after he goes haywire and his creator tries to reprogram him (it?).

If you want a good waste of two hours, go see this movie. Don't go in with grandiose expectations; take the movie at face value and you'll enjoy it. Don't read all of the reviews (even some of those posted here on Amazon) and don't listen to reviewers who've panned it without even seeing it (another review here).

3.0 out of 5 stars Top Gun in the 21th century? I think not ! February 11, 2010
Format:DVD
I really like fighter jet movies, which goes back to my high school day's fascination with the technology of the jets of the 1980s, back in the "good ole" days of the Cold War. So when Top Gun came out with Tom Cruise in 1986, it was more than obvious that I was going to watch it. Well, that was almost 25 years ago, hard to believe that that's a quarter century. But things were so different back then. I mean, there was a solid "real" enemy, which competed directly with the US in the arms race that produced real jets that rivaled those of the USAF.

Today, ever since 9/11 there's only a stateless threat and no real enemy (it's all contrived to maintain an excessively high defense budget) and Al Qaida of course doesn't have any jet fighters, so you can't have a movie with dogfights against them. That's one of the problems with this movie and movies like this. And in that sense Tom Cruise and the producers of Top Gun were lucky that they didn't wait a few more years (like about 5) when the Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1991.

But I digress, now to the movie itself. Stealth suffers from lack of a realistic enemy. Perhaps that's why the story seems so contrived and bloated, just overdone. Lacking an adequate or even halfway memorable enemy, the makers simply decided that if they didn't have a convincing external enemy, they would turn to an invented internal one. So they came up with not only the by far most advanced stealth jet in the history of aviation, no, they also made sure that its hyper capable computer system had more than just a few of the ordinary bugs. Thus, during a crucial mission the stealth on board computer turns against its own pilot and takes over the control of the aircraft.

Why are some DVD's the same price as the Blu-ray version?
because people who have not seen the light and made the switch will pay the same amount.

Studios to support HD DVD
HD DVD sucked. I knew from the moment they brought out Blu-ray, that it was going to be the " One Format To Rule Them All." I still can't figure out why people still like DVD. I have a High Def 1080p TV and Blu-ray is superior to DVD in every way. They will eventually completely replace... Read More
