If you’re into Stealth bombers, cool special effects, and flying, I still don’t recommend the movie, “Stealth,” out Friday. Starring Jessica Biel, Jamie Foxx, and Josh Lucas, I thought I would like this film. But I was wrong.
Action-packed? Yes. Patriotic? No. The soundtrack comes from anti-war, leftist proletariat band, Incubus. That should tell you all you need to know. But here’s more:
Like most Hollywood anti-American, anti-military trash, “Stealth” has its evil commanding officer willing to kill his own men to protect himself (complete with an evil Southern accent–Southerners are always evil or stupid in the world according to Hollywood), corrupt Pentagon official, plus a Stealth plane run by a robot gone haywire.
Then there’s Foxx’s character, a walking, talking version of every Black stereotype imaginable. (Strangely, it didn’t seem to bother the largely Black crowd with whom I saw the flick.)
I remember when defense-minded conservatives pushed against Congressional leftists to get funding to develop Stealth bombers. And I’m glad we have them, now. I like Stealth bombers, but not this movie. If you want to see a military movie that makes you proud to be an American, blow off “Stealth,” and see “The Great Raid,” instead (“Raid” comes out on August 12th).
