U.S. Navy pilots Ben Gannon (Josh Lucas), Kara Wade (Jessica Biel) and Henry Purcell (Jamie Foxx) are part of an elite division of test pilots flying highly classified stealth fighter jets.

Then their CO George Cummings (Sam Shepard) introduces the team to their new wingman - an artificial intelligence-based UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle), nicknamed "EDI."

To the team's amazement EDI proves to be very effective and their first mission is a success. But on the return trip EDI is struck by lightning. The drone's brain changes in ways its creators could never have predicted.

On their next mission against a nuclear-armed warlord in a remote Chinese province, EDI's seriously compromised circuitry problems only get worse. Ben aborts the mission, but EDI goes against orders and executes the hit anyway.

The danger escalates when EDI decides to execute a top-secret mission that, if successful, could trigger a nuclear Armageddon.


"A slick piece of summer entertainment that is counting on elaborate special effects to make its derivative, convoluted story line all but irrelevant."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"Stealth is flimsy and forgettable, but it does have a few worthy action and special-effects sequences."
- Jami Bernard, New York Daily News

"Stealth is a offence against taste, intelligence and the noise pollution code -- a dumbed-down Top Gun crossed with the HAL 9000 plot from 2001."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

An artificial-intelligence-driven fighter jet goes beserk and a team of pilots must prevent disaster.

Stealth The story was flimsy, very much a Raiders of the Lost Arc type of film but the special effects were outstanding and as a affecianado of action films with special effects this was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the aircraft, they were outstanding - where can I get some jpg's of them? yes
