“Stealth”

 

SYNOPSIS: courtesy of http://www.sonypictures.com/homevideo/stealth/title-navigation-4.html

From the director of XXX and The Fast and The Furious comes an exhilarating epic blockbuster starring Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx (Best Actor, RAY, 2004). Breathtaking from take-off, it thrusts you in the cockpit, hits Mach 5 and never looks back. Henry, Ben and Kara are hands down the world’s best tactical fighter pilots. But a new member joins their team, a state-of-the-art, fully-automated, pilotless, super stealth warplane – inhuman and invincible. But once this stealth goes up it’s never coming down, wreaking destruction in seconds across the globe, leaving the team with one last no-fail mission: to stop it – no matter what.”

MPAA RATING: Rated PG-13 for intense action, some violence, brief strong language and innuendo.

CHARACTERS: Includes Josh Lucas as Lt. Ben Gannon, Jessica Biel as Lt. Kara Wade, Jamie Foxx as Lt. Henry Purcell, Sam Shepard as Capt. George Cummings, Richard Roxburgh as Dr. Keith Orbit

I think this 2005 movie is just freakin’ awesome! Below is a clip of a trailer of the movie. You do have to get through the advertisement that plays to begin with..but it is definitely worth the wait! Also, there are some VERY memorable lines from this movie…one of the funniest being…

Capt. George Cummings: [as Purcell turns around in shock over getting a fourth wingman in the squadron] What’s the problem, Purcell? You look like you just been hit in the gut.
Lt. Henry Purcell: Well, for one, Captain, we’ve been flying together for a long time, and it’s good; but FOUR is an unlucky number.
Capt. George Cummings: Unlucky?
Lt. Henry Purcell: Yeah! It’s not a prime number. See, prime numbers can only be divided by one or itself. THREE is a prime number. The Holy Trinity? The thesis and antithesis that come together to form the synthesis…
Capt. George Cummings: Look! This is not a seminar on metaphysics, son. This is the U.S. Navy. Now we ship out Wednesday at oh five hundred. Dismissed.
Lt. Henry Purcell: Okay. IF he’d let me finish I was gonna say Three’s Company, Three Stooges, Three Musketeers, three-peat, three strikes you’re out, “Three Times a Lady”.
Lt. Kara Wade: Three dimensions?
Lt. Henry Purcell: Three Blind Mice.
Lt. Ben Gannon: Menage a trois. Don’t forget that one. Right?”

Overall, this movie is worth 4 & 1/2 stars!!! It is exciting and as action packed as you can get, plus I can relate to Lt. Kara Wade because she is “one of the guys” and can totally hang with them, hands down. I’ve been in that spot, doing what is considered a “man’s job”, but showing them that a woman can do it just as well…maybe even better ;o)

  1. I saw this movie a while ago, It was exciting , I sill remember the vertical flight sequence.

  2. Ah Stealth, I remember this movie. I thought it was pretty good. I like Josh Lucas a lot but was bummed he wasn’t as “hot” in this movie but he wasn’t bad either lol. The plot and all was not bad I dunno though I think the movie was about 3 stars (I only saw it once though).
