Jaw-droppingly awful

STEALTH is an incredibly bad Hollywood blockbuster and the worst I can think of of its type. It's an adventure story about a new fighter jet imbued with artificial intelligence that goes rogue after a lightning strike, leaving the human pilots with no option but to attempt to take it down. It sounds workable on paper but in terms of execution this is appalling stuff indeed, a mindless CGI adventure and nothing else.

The story points are ludicrous and unbelievable, the characters cardboard-thin and clichéd. The film is nearly all action, action depicted by CGI which must have looked awful on release and looks awful now. You feel like you're watching someone play an old Playstation 2 game, not a film with real-life jets and hardware. There's a trio of heroes: Josh Lucas, wooden beyond belief; Jamie Foxx, awkward and out of place; Jessica Biel, basically treated as a sex object by the director.

Outside of the awful effects, there are some hilarious moments in this. The Americans manage to shoot down a couple of Russian fighter jets over Russian airspace as well as pretty much invading North Korean and blowing up their defences and a helicopter at the same time. Apparently there's no comeback after these hostile incursions; no WW3, just gung-ho flag-waving and sentiment. STEALTH really does have to be seen to be believed because as bad films go this is one of the very worst.

You Want Action? We Got Action!

I don't know why they call this movie "Stealth." There are a lot of stealthy looking Naval aircraft in it but stealth counts for nothing. There's no action in being stealthy. And this has nothing but action. When the pilots are on foot and not exchanging machine gun fire with enemy troops on the ground, the airplanes are whipping around through the sky, doing maneuvers at Mach 1 that would generate G forces that would squash any ordinary human being into something resembling the world's biggest pizza pie.

Oh -- and another thing. Why do they call these guys on giant modern aircraft carriers "sailors"? They're not sailors. They're city dwellers living in a gigantic apartment complex with an ocean view. I was a sailor on a Coast Guard cutter the size of a destroyer, and a sailor is somebody who gets waked up in the middle of the night by some boatswain's mate with a cup of coffee in his hand and is ordered to mop up the sea water that's been shipped into the crew's quarters.

I'm glad I was finally able to get that off my chest. Yes. I feel much better now, Doctor.

Let me see about the plot. It rips off so many other films that I lost track. A fully computerized fighter bomber goes berserk like an airborne HAL2000 series and begins to disobey orders until at the end it sacrifices itself to save two American pilots. The pilots and the flying junkyard and their joint boss, Sam Shepherd, are real beauties too. We're not at war with anybody, yet -- let me thing -- we blast hell out of a ten-story building in Rangoon where some terrorists are supposed to be hiding. We then obliterate a scud missile base in Cloud Cuckoostan, sending a roiling billow of radioactive dust over a nearby village full of innocent but swarthy people. We violate Russian air space and shoot down a couple of their interceptors. We violate North Korean air space and obliterate the troops that pursue our downed pilot. Our losses: one pilot, by accident, sort of. I don't think I left anybody out.

The award for best performance in a junky movie goes to -- envelope, please -- YES, HAL2000 Series C! Here name "EDI", Hal has a somewhat soothing voice, the kind that might come from a late-night classical music program on FM radio, but it's kind of feminine too. And, unlike HAL, it can make wisecracks and argue with its controllers. It even makes a little joke before it commits altruistic suicide. "Good-bye," says HAL casually before ramming a North Korean helicopter.

When "Something Wicked This Way Comes" was released, critics were disappointed. They'd been promised a glimpse of these new things called computer-generated images, and all they got was a few seconds of some digitalized choo-choo. Those CGIs were embedded in a human story. Now it's the other way around,.

Sinful but EntertainingÂ…Fast and Furious Flag Waving

"Stealth" is an Awful Movie Starring Josh Lucas, Jamie Foxx, and Jessica Biel, an Iraq War Propaganda Piece released during that Middle East Debacle. The War in Iraq was Raging when this bit of Nonsense made its way into Theatres.

It Could be Called Sinful, and it has. But Unlike "Jet Pilot" (1957) this is at Least Entertaining on a Video Game Popcorn Planet where Thinking is Discouraged and Waving the Flag is Encouraged.

From the Get-Go the Action Never Stops. It is one Hair-Raising and Mind Numbing Scene after another. There is No Time to Think, and that's a Good Thing if there is any chance to Enjoy this Critically Demolished Movie.

Everything Looks "Pretty" as if War is a Postcard to make Us Forget just how Immoral it has a way of becoming in the "Heat" of Battle and in the "Cold" Political Arena. "Mission Accomplished"

If You have any Concerns about the Philosophy and Political Mindset of Modern Day War (on terror), it's best to Stay Far Away from this Problematic Picture.

But if You are Smart Enough to Recognize what's Going On here and View it in Perspective, as Reprehensible Rot-Gut, that can be Blasted for its Lack of anything Approaching Intellect, the Movie can be Called the Cinematic Equivalent of Fast and Furious Food.

The Film must be Forgiven a lot of things to keep from Throwing Up. Like its Dollar Menu Brethren there is No Nutrition here or anything of Substance. It Exists to Fill a Need for many Folks, to be Entertained, and at the Same Time, Pump Up the Citizenry. It Certainly Pumps the Adrenalin and in that regard it is Successful if not Commendable.
