In the near future, the Navy develops a fighter jet piloted by an artificial intelligence computer. The jet is placed on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific to learn combat manuevers from the human pilots aboard. But when the computer develops a mind of its own, it's the humans who are charged with stopping it before it incites a war...Written by

Survival training must not have been a high priority for these elite pilots. Breaking radio silence over enemy territory to relay unimportant information and drawing attention to oneself while attempting to evade are just a couple of the errors these aviators make. See more »
After the end of the credits, we go back to Korea and see the wreckage of EDI. We pass through most of the wreckage until we stop on EDI's central core. Suddenly, the red eye begins to glow..... See more »
Spectacular aircrafts movie with lots of CG effects and noisy action
The picture concerns about two all-American boys(Josh Lucas, Jamie Foxx) and a brave girl(Jessica Biel).They are the best US Navy pilots and were chosen by Captain Cummins(Sam Shepard) to fly the latest marvel aircraft, Stealth fighter, called Talons, a supersonic fighting planes. They go behind world terrorists into Rangun and Kirghistan. Captain Cummins adds a new member to the team, an unmanned combat aerial vehicle that is being flown by a computer called Edi( voice of Wentworth Miller) with an artificial intelligence brain inside the cockpit and operated by a technician(Richard Roxburgh). But the exceptional Stealth is struck by a lightning and like HAL from ¨2001, Space Odyssey", starts to think for itself, rebelling against the humans. The trio ought to stop it , before begins WWIII.
This is a well produced and entertaining film though some moments is lamentably dull, for that reason is instantly forgettable trifle. The story of three valiant Lieutenants is much too-thin to sustain such a long movie. What's important here are the combats, shootings, airplane pursuits, flying sequences , among the best in the last time Hollywood history. Amazing computer generator FX are realized by Digital Domain, whose owner is James Cameron. Fantastic, memorable aerial cinematography by Deam Semler is the main asset of this silly story with stunning dogfighting and horrible disco-music by BT. Numerous films appear ¨Stealth¨, the next generation aircraft, as the production star, the first movie was ¨Firefox¨(Clint Eastwood)and two with Steven Seagal(Executive decision and Flight of fury) and several in B series, especially. The motion picture is lavishly produced by Neal Moritz and professionally directed by Rob Cohen, both are usual action movies experts. Rating : Acceptable and passable for its spectacular images.
