Great concept with enjoyable flying scenes and some great background music.

The most underrated and underappreciated movie in history. It did not deserve the kind of treatment it got from critics. This is an exciting, well made action flick with a good cast, good acting, great music, great action scenes along with an interesting story. This is a great film.

It has a pretty poor first act, but the rest of the movie is pretty good, and takes AI in a direction you don't see too often. Fun action throughout though.

Can't understand why the critics slated this so much, I loved it. Don't wanna ruin the plot, but Jessica Beil would make a great Lara Croft in any future "Tomb Raider" movie and you'll see why if you watch this!

Throw science out the window and the idea of using spec ops ground forces for all the missions these pilots go on and yet one will still wonder why these pilots even exist.

Much better than I thought it was going to be. The plane stuff is all pretty cool, the acting is decent from the three leads the only real down fall is that I did not like the whole cover up angle, it just seemed kinda silly. The rest of the movie was good and Jessica Biel looks less and less like she was ever on a tv show about a pastor and his kids.

Pretty bad movie. Not that great of special effects, weak storyline (clear combination of Top Gun and 2001: A Space Odyssey), and not very good performances.

An ok film if you turn your brain off. Every cliche in the big book of cliches is used. For a film called 'Stealth' the action is anything but.

Despite its fast pace and mostly impressive special effects the movie fails miserably due to the fact that it tries to say something about drone warfare but the story seems set in a world where a lightning bolt can change a computers programing. Let me find out if a lightning bolt will turn my Playstation into an Xbox. Somehow I doubt it. That on top of bland characters make this mostly avoidable as its too silly to take seriously despite it wanting you to think otherwise

Stealth had a trailer which made it look like a film with a great quantity of aviation action sequences, and that seemed cool. But it was largely critically panned, so I had to look into it and determine why that was.

Stealth kicks off by showing off its most high quality element: its impressive visual effects. It uses CGI to create some awesome aviation sequences interspersed with plenty of explosions and well shot action. Soon after it shows just what its fatal flaws are.
Stealth borrows the story element from 2001: A Space Odyssey which relates to technology developing a mind of its own, but in Stealth that is senseless. Its used simply as a an excuse for lazy writing and isn't explored beyond an iench of the concept. It's like Stealth is a film that attempts to use that concept as a front for action and show the idea to the younger audiences that would appreciate the action, but with no intelligence behind it just collapses under a lack of structure and the way it can't handle its theme of Artificial Intelligence.
The AI is ridiculous as well because as it develops it learns to swear which is just pathetic. Its an example of the flawed script which is full of ridiculous dialogue which is obviously generic dialogue which parodies any government themed action film ever made without interesting any clever elements whatsoever into it Its all thoroughly weak throughout all of Stealth. Some of the worst lines are forced upon Jamie Foxx whose character is so weak despite his best efforts that when he dies in a poorly shot and shoddily edited death scene, the only thing viewers will feel is annoyance. And since Jessica Biel can't shut up with her lines in the scene where she ejects from her stealth jet, she just keeps throwing out more and more poorly conceived dialogue which reminds us the quality of the script and her shortcomings as an actress. For a character meant to be a United States Navy Lieutenant she conveys more a feel of a damsel in distress, and that is the last thing a film like this needs. Josh Lucas is the only one that comes out half decent even after the film has already dealt its damage to him.
Stealth is an example of a big-budget film which is excessively reliant on nothing more than CGI during all its sequences that are meant to highlight the better qualities of the film, but even at times the CGI comes off rather poor. Its good in the aviation sequences but bad predominantly the rest of the time, and it doesn't feel genuine because there is an overkill of visual effects in Stealth. It lacks the touch that Top Gun had, even though that in itself wasn't such a great film.
Stealth shows that director Rob Cohen knows less about being a good film director than he does about making use of visual effects, so Stealth ends up being an overblown and loud video game-ish experience, and not in a good way whatsoever. While its action may please the junkies, its overkill and lack of intelligence makes it $135 million letdown.

Boring, forgettable, ridiculous, cliched, and takes itself too serious. Week characters and a plot that was lacking.
½ January 14, 2014
I'm not gonna talk about this. It's not worth it.

A pleasant surprise! I expected Stealth to just be a mindless film about real human pilots fighting unmanned futuristic drones, with more emphasis on special effects than plot, but I was certainly mistaken. Taking elements from James Bond, XXX, and Behind Enemy Lines, this film managed to tell a real story with involving characters and very fun action sequences, both in the air and on the ground. The entire cast delivered great performances, the direction was outstanding, and the end result is a very entertaining 2 hours of cinema.

I rate this film a 3. I enjoyed it just that much.

1/6/2014: Not bad. A good story with some good action with an excellent cast.
½ January 3, 2014
Astonishingly stupid, quite possibly one of the most retarded films I have ever seen. I will never forgive Jamie Foxx for this.
½ January 1, 2014
Idiotic and predictable. One of the biggest flops of all time for a reason.

Three sexy stealth bombers pilots are forced to work with a computer-manned prototype extra precision bombing plane, which eventually gets out of control. Action film that is too long and dull, regardless of the explosions and flight chase sequences and has countless screenplay flaws as well as dubious acting.

As usual the very light Rob Cohen brings us a nightmare of a film! no just kidding, but the lad isn't famous for being light on action so be prepared to push the action full throttle and get little storyline. the cast do what they can, hey all look pretty and out of the gym,so even thoughthis film is prefectly frgetable,at least you will get to see some good looking girls and guys. Wow awesome no?

Awful movie... again, I only watched it for Richard Roxburgh... he's the only reason why I bought the damn thing too.
