Stealth (*)

Inane action flick clearly designed to appeal to those ten year old boys who just got their first X-Box. This movie wastes the talents of all involved, especially Jamie Foxx who is given nothing to do except play the horny flyboy. The movie is basically one long visual effects shot, and a boring one at that. Stealth fighter planes soar through the air at rapid speed, but who cares? The story concerns a Navy experiment with an artificially intelligent plane that goes haywire and starts acting out a la Hal in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The A.I. plane, or EDI as it's called (Extreme Deep Invader) is supposed to be scary and menacing, but for some reason, director Rob Cohen likes to use sub-level, generic Bush/'90s rock tunes as a sort of mood setter whenever the plane goes crazy. It's almost laughable how incompetent this movie is at times. Too bad the movie takes itself so seriously. It actually thinks it has something to say. It doesn't.
