Director Rob Cohen on Stealth
"I wanted the audience not to be sitting safely in their seat with their box of popcorn and watching a movie about flying--I wanted the audience to fly. So if you have motion sickness, take your Dramamine before you see Stealth, because the truth is, it will involve you in an experience in a way that I don't think other movies have done yet."
In director Rob Cohen's exciting action adventure, Stealth, U.S. Navy pilots Ben Gannon (Josh Lucas), Kara Wade (Jessica Biel) and Henry Purcell (Oscar Winner Jamie Foxx) are part of a close-knit elite division of test pilots flying highly classified stealth fighter jets, referred to only as talons.
They're the best of the best and they know it.
Then their commanding officer Cpt. George Cummings (Sam Shephard) introduces the team to their new wingman--an artificial intelligence-based UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle), nicknamed "EDI."
Although Ben is hesitant about taking "the human pilot out of the equation of war," Cummings orders the team to execute their first real mission alongside "EDI." To their amazement, "EDI" proves to be a real cracker-jack wingman and they successful eliminate their target. But on the return trip to their base aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson, "EDI" is struck by lightning. The drone's brain expands in ways its creators could never have predicted. Despite Ben and Henry's reservations, Cummings declares "EDI" ready to rejoin the team in the air.
On their next mission against a nuclear-armed warlord in a remote Chinese province, "EDI's" seriously compromised circuitry problems only get worse. Ben decides that the risks of the attack far outweigh the benefits to himself, Henry and Kara, for whom he has developed a romantic attraction. When he aborts the mission, "EDI" goes against orders and executes the hit anyway.
The danger escalates when "EDI" decides to execute a top-secret mission that, if successful, could spiral into worldwide nuclear armageddon. And only Ben can prevent it.
