Stealth flirts with competence when it reprises Behind Enemy Lines, and staggers into hilarious ineptitude when it borrows from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Despite its creative premise involving a robotic and intelligent fighter jet which goes bad, is remarkably uncreative in coming up with a story that actually makes use of this cool toy.

Weakly written and cynically contrived ...

The blueprints for Stealth called for long-forgotten spare parts, and the end result will likely cause a box-office crash.

Stealth is a offense against taste, intelligence and the noise pollution code -- a dumbed-down Top Gun crossed with the HAL 9000 plot from 2001.

Overlong, disjointed, and rarely compelling, Stealth has the capacity to put viewers into a catatonic state.

Its name is a likely indicator of its performance at the box office.

Doesn't really generate any emotion at all other than apathy.

Ultimately, however, how much can you act when you're confined most of the time in an ultra-cramped cockpit -- even if you do have a golden statuette?

This movie hated me from the opening scene; two hours later, the feeling was more than mutual.

The movie does deliver the video game goods but strands its characters in a no-man's-land of crude characterizations and silly dialogue.

Cohen undermines his own effort to make a 21st century Top Gun by using so many quick cuts and zooms that we can't even appreciate the action sequences. I almost got motion sickness.

You know the old joke about military intelligence being an oxymoron? Stealth proves it.

Stealth is about absolutely nothing, and pretty much everything at the same time: terrorism, technology, warfare, grungy alt-rock, conflicted choices and cool flying footage.

Almost apocalyptic in its stupidity

If Stealth were a recruitment film for aircraft-carrier duty, one would be tempted to say, 'Mission accomplished.' As a feature film, it's a washout.

Reflects Cohen's own aesthetic modus operandi of replacing all traces of humanity with digitized artificiality.

When your movie is about a magical talking airplane, and yet the magical talking airplane is not the silliest thing about the movie, then you should not make any more movies.

It's not new. It's not interesting. I wish it would go away.

Has the makings of a kitsch classic.
