Previous review of Stealth (8/9/05)
I noticed the critics shredded this movie, and for good reason. However, there were some genuine "summer popcorn movie" moments in this film. I tried to ignore the obvious problems, the clichés, and the bad allusions to other movies. If you don't know anything about this flick, it's about three fighter pilots who are testing out a new, super-stealth aircraft. When they get assigned to an aircraft carrier, they gain a fourth wingman―a computer-controlled aircraft that no one likes (they christen him "Tin Man"). As I'm sure you can guess, the aircraft without a pilot goes haywire, and the real pilots have to clean up the mess. The last act of the film is actually better than the previous two, despite its unbelievable plot.
