It's hard to find many films worse than "STEALTH". Even the over-rated piece of crap, "CACHE" has at least a couple of minutes in it that were semi-compelling. There's not one scene in "STEALTH" that isn't totally predictable. The acting is horrible and the film moves so sluggishly, it's painful to sit through. That said, the film "looks" wonderful! The film is filled with scenes that were intended to be "action-filled", showcasing CGI effects, and they're perfect samples to highlight blu-ray technology. The story(?) revolves around pilots working with a new "STEALTH" fighter, completely operated by its own computer. Unfortunately, and predictably, it starts making unsound decisions and would rather destroy all around it than be de-commissioned. Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx can't do anything with what they're given here, and Foxx comes across so badly that one almost wonders if he deserves to have his Oscar yanked from him just from what he did here!
SONY has done wonders with the look of this BLU-RAY release. While the dvd was impressive, the detail and resolution to every scene on blu-ray in comparison, blows away standard dvd. The 2.40:1 aspect ratio is intact. Colors have not looked better on BLU-RAY thus far, over what's achieved here. The darkest scenes have incredible detail and contrast. This film, while a piece of crap content-wise, is demonstration quality for the video quality of "BLU-RAY".
While the BLU-RAY doesn't offer the spectacular DTS 5.1 mix, it does offer a PCM 5.1 mix, devoid of any compression! It's outstanding and another perfect reason this disc stands out as a BLU-RAY demonstration disc.
SONY has chucked out the abundance of extras from the two disc dvd offering. But, an extra here includes a music video highlighting blu-ray technology with scenes from the film.
