If we're going to be fighting the war on terror in perpetuity, could we at least get better movies out of it?

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.

Stealth manages to be so ridiculously unconvincing you think you're watching a live-action version of last year's sublime action-movie puppet satire Team America.

Rob Cohen's airborne adventure Stealth commits the cardinal sin for an action movie: It's very, very dull.

No matter how hard Cohen flogs it, whips it, beats it, shakes it, kicks it and prods it with a sharp stick, Stealth, his latest, just doesn't spring to life.

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

Harsh and tasteless, it doesn't even qualify as a popcorn movie. Popcorn, at least, has some taste to it, and a certain airiness.

Beyond mind-numbing explosions, Stealth's effects are good, especially the whooshing flight scenes. But as Eddie shows, humanity matters, and computer wizardry won't fill an empty plot.

Cohen is no stranger to cornball excess but Stealth is his chef-d'oeuvre, a movie so audaciously preposterous and jingoistic it plays like a parody of the genre.

[Stealth] is the filmic embodiment of all that is indulgent, gratuitous and downright dumb in pop culture.

Stealth doesn't so much crash and burn as just fly and fade into its CGI-created sunset.

Stealth is a pretty fair military-hardware action movie until you start thinking about it -- at which point it turns incredibly sour in your mouth.

Stealth is so over-painted with CGI that it doesn't look as real as the sequence starring Shepard that inspired it in The Right Stuff, a movie made with model airplanes.

A slick piece of summer entertainment that is counting on elaborate special effects to make its derivative, convoluted story line all but irrelevant.

Stealth's strengths are obvious -- high-tech marvels and a good cast -- so are its flaws. At its worst moments, a mad robot seems to have taken over the movie, too.

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.

The stars are asked to chew on the driest of technobabble, and to strike poses of flyboy and flygirl moxie that make them look callow rather than heroic.
