YMMV / Stealth

  • Angst? What Angst?: Neither Gannon nor Wade seem to care much about the fact that Purcell, one of their best friends and one of the world's best pilots, died.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The movie's orchestral soundtrack is actually very good.
  • Designated Villain: The pair of Russian Su-37s that get shot down were only defending their nation from two foreign fighters well inside their airspace, one of which was actually planning to attack.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: Sure, Gannon and Wade end up together, and EDI is still alive, but Purcell is dead, they invaded several (hostile) nations' airspaces which will likely result in World War III, and North Korea could easily access the remains of EDI's technology to create their own EDI.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Josh Lucas would later be cast as Charles Lindbergh in J. Edgar.
    • An artificial intelligence named EDI?
  • Narm:
    • The evil supervisor calls his evil boss, to remind him that "This is the difference between warriors and politicians." Apparently, the difference is that warriors shoot themselves dead in restrooms.
    • As one review pointed out, EDI downloaded every MP3 on the Internet and yet he only listens to Incubus.note 
    • EDI telling Gannon to "leave me alone" when he tells EDI to return to formation. The Machine Monotone doesn't help.
  • Tearjerker: EDI's final line. "....Goodbye."
  • Values Resonance: A decade after the film's release, concerns about drones and keeping control of them are only getting more important.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Say what you will about the movie, at the time, the special effects were pretty convincing. Especially the crash that causes Henry's death as well as the explosion in Alaska. Digital Domain was responsible for the majority of them.
