Stealth product reviews

U.S. Navy pilots Ben Gannon (Josh Lucas), Kara Wade (Jessica Biel) and Henry Purcell (Jamie Foxx) are part of a close-knit elite division of test pilots flying highly classified stealth fighter jets, referred to only as Talons. They're the best of the best and they know it. Then their commanding officer Captain George Cummings (Sam Shepard) introduces the team to their new wingman--an artificial intelligence-based UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle), nicknamed "EDI."

Although Ben is hesitant about taking "the human pilot out of the equation of war," Cummings orders the team to execute their first real mission alongside "EDI." To their amazement, "EDI" proves to be a cracker-jack wingman and they successfully eliminate their target. But on the return trip to their base aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson, "EDI" is struck by lightning. The drone's brain expands in ways its creators could never have predicted. Despite Ben and Henry's reservations, Cummings declares "EDI" ready to rejoin the team in the air.

On their next mission against a nuclear-armed warlord in a remote Chinese province, "EDI's" seriously compromised circuitry problems only get worse. Ben decides that the risks of the attack far outweigh the benefits to himself, Henry and Kara (for whom he has developed a romantic attraction). When he aborts the mission, "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 spiral into worldwide nuclear Armageddon. And only Ben can prevent it.

I wish I could go into some detail about this movie, but I can't really. Though it had few memorable highlights, it was such fun to watch as an overall plotline that it still rates significantly higher than first glance would appear to warrant.

Though it is somewhat believeable that such planes WILL one day exist, it is still a stretch against the limits we have found with computing at present. But oh, the 3d-object designers earned their pay well with the EDI craft... it was beautifully done, on both aesthetic and technical levels.

Overall, movies like this always strike me as peanut butter sandwiches on whitebread... no matter what they put on the label, it's always the same consistancy, flavour and texture... but it's strangely satisfying. I will probably buy this one just to watch the planes again and again.
