Stealth - August 2005

On paper, "Stealth" should have been terrible. The commercials showed us hot shot pilots who have to battle an unmanned fighter jet that goes rogue. Yawn. But "Stealth" isn’t really like the previews. The renegade jet is part of it, but it’s more about the pilots and their over-the-top missions. Sure, "Stealth" gets science, politics, geography and military stuff wrong, but it strikes the right tone and gives us enough eye-popping, high quality graphics to allow us to buy in. If you’re an action fan, see "Stealth" on the big screen rather than waiting for it on home video.

[2009: Too late. Home video is now the only choice.]
