Stealth, was directed by Rob Cohen (the Fast and the Furious) and starred Josh Lucas, Jamie Foxx, and Jessica Biel.
The film follows three of the world’s best pilots as they are chosen to pilot the next generation of stealth fighters (rogerebert.com).
Bad reviews may have been the dooming force behind this project, as Rotten Tomatoes (%13 out of 100), Metacritic (35% out of 100), and Yahoo Movies (D+) all rated this movie poorly. The film was considered a Top Gun, knock-off, with an overly simplistic plot, supported by loud sounds and fast jets.
The Sci-fi action film was categorized as a “colossal box office bomb” making just under $77M Dollars (over $50M below its production budget).
