STEALTH (2005) GO!, 10.40PM, M, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Ac­tion ex­pert Rob Co­hen ( xXx, Fast and the Furious) kept up his streak of churn­ing out films that value spec­ta­cle over logic with this amaz­ing-look­ing but amaz­ingly dopey flick. An at­trac­tive tri­umvi­rate of stars (Josh Lu­cas, Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx) play ace navy fighter pi­lots who learn they’re about to be joined by a new wing­man named “Ed­die”. Their new com­rade turns out to be a pilot-less, ar­ti­fi­cially in­tel­li­gent fighter jet. The premise is ripe for ac­tion aplenty, but Co­hen’s naval thriller (which was shot in Syd­ney) gets bogged down by its techno-babble and con­vo­luted plot. ★★★
