An ultra-modern warplane á la Stealth goes mustang and tries to start World War III with Russia. That's the basic plot line of "Stealth", one of those *very* light entertainment films we all just love to hate.
The actors are supposed to be super-tough fighter pilots, but look vaguely gay. On a vacation to Thailand, all three main characters (two men and one woman) get to "show their ware". Despite the undertone of straight eroticism, they still look slightly gay. None of the other actors look convincing as military men either, except for the Asians starring North Korean soldiers!
The rips from more on-the-level productions are obvious. The unmanned Stealth plane sounds and acts like HAL 9000 in "2001: A Space Odyssey". The Russian intermezzo is similar to "Dr. Strangelove". The good-looking girl in a fighter jet might be a muted reference to "Starship Troopers" (the movie). I'm sure I missed some references. Feel free to fill me in.
But no, I don't think I'm going to watch "Stealth" again, LOL. This one was definitely "under the radar". Only two stars for Rob Cohen.
