Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel, and Jamie Foxx star as naval pilots who get a new wingman in the form of a state of the art artificially intelligent robotic stealth bomber. Of course, it gets struck by lightning and goes crazy and tries to bomb the shit out of Russia. (It even downloads songs off of the internet!) Director Rob (The Fast and the Furious) Cohen delivers what is probably the dumbest movie in recent memory. The sheer awfulness of the acting, the ludicrous scripting and the bad special effects will crush your soul and insult your intelligence. There’s also a woefully inane rescue-behind-enemy-lines subplot that takes up way too much of the movie.
Foxx again proves that after you win an Oscar you have to make the dumbest movie possible. At least he had the good sense to get killed off an hour into the flick. This nonsense manages not only to rip off Top Gun, but also Terminator 2 and 2001! Argh! My brain still hurts from this one. I think I need to go lie down.
Co-starring Sam (“Wasn’t I in The Right Stuff? What the hell am I doing here?”) Shepard as the commanding officer who tries to cover his ass and Joe (Terminator 2) Morton.
