Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Think Top Gun meets WarGames and you've got the measure of this exceptionally silly B-movie action adventure from Rob Cohen, the director of xXx and The Fast and the Furious. Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx play top secret US Navy pilots who find themselves attempting to regain control of a "drone" plane piloted by a rogue computer (sounding like a mixture between Knight Rider's KITT and 2001's HAL) that, for reasons entirely of its own, has decided to bomb the former Soviet republic of Tajikistan. There's nothing inherently wrong with enjoying dumb movies like this, of course, but they have to be so deftly done that you can forgive the ludicrous premise and just enjoy the ride. Sadly, although Cohen directs the aerial footage with his usual hectic brio, Stealth's weaknesses - a lumpen screenplay, inept dialogue and uninteresting characters - make the gaps between the action feel very long indeed.
