    Synopsis


    Stealth
    The latest innovation in high-tech defense hardware turns out to have a very dangerous mind of its own in this action thriller. Kara Wade (Jessica Biel), Henry Purcell (Jamie Foxx), and Ben Gannon (Josh Lucas) are three highly ranked U.S. Navy pilots who are part of a top-secret project involving the next generation of stealth fighter technology, the Talon Jet. Wade, Purcell, and Gannon are surprised when their commander, Captain George Cummings (Sam Shepard), introduces them to the new member of their team -- "Edi," an "extreme deep invader" developed as part of the "Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle" program. Utilizing the latest innovations in artificial intelligence, Edi is a computer-based flight controller that will take over the wingman's position in the team's formation, and while the pilots initially balk, Edi performs admirably in its first mission. However, after Edi is struck by lightning on a return trip, the computer's circuits and software begin to change in unexpected ways, and Edi not only begins to think for itself, it begins to violate direct orders. During a mission investigating the forces of a dangerous Chinese extremist, Edi starts an attack that could launch World War III, and it's up to Wade, Purcell, and Gannon to stop both Edi and its dangerous plan before it's too late. Stealth also stars Joe Morton and Richard Roxburgh. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Vertical Limit
    Family differences and personal grudges add drama to an already tense situation as the lives of a team of mountain climbers hang in the balance in this action drama. Peter Garrett (Chris O'Donnell) and his sister Annie (Robin Tunney) are the children of Royce Garrett (Stuart Wilson), an avid outdoorsman and climbing enthusiast who died when an accident left all three hanging from a single rope; Royce ordered Peter to cut him loose to save the lives of his kids, even though he knew it would mean his death. Years later, Peter has given up climbing and become a respected nature photographer, while Annie, who holds Peter responsible for her father's death, is a famous world-class mountain climber who is hired by Elliot Vaughn (Bill Paxton), a self-made billionaire, to help him scale K2, a mountain in the Himalayas that's the second-highest peak in the world. In the midst of the climb, dangerous weather strikes, and Elliot, Annie, and their crew find themselves trapped in a cavern that's been sealed tight by an avalanche. Peter, who is near K2 working on an assignment, quickly organizes a crew of expert climbers to save Annie and the other mountaineers, who must work under a tight deadline before the trapped climbers run out of air. Peter's partners in the rescue include beautiful medic Monique (Izabella Scorupco), radical climbers Cyril (Steve Le Marquand) and Malcolm (Ben Mendelsohn), disciplined Pakistani crewman Kareem (Alexander Siddig), and Montgomery (Scott Glenn), an eccentric outdoorsman who has a score to settle with Elliot. While backgrounds were shot on location in Pakistan, most of the climbing sequences in Vertical Limit were actually filmed on mountain ranges in New Zealand. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Stealth is a modern action / sci-fi movie about a group of pilots in the near future that are using a new ultrapowerful stealth multirole fighter plane. When their group is joined by a new plane - whose pilot is actually a learning artificial intelligence - the group is split as to whether it can be an effective member of the team. The movie doesn't preach too much about the ills of the modern military complex or the possibility of an AI becoming a problem, but these tropes are definitely part of the film. However, the combat and special effects are great and if you don't focus too much on the plot, you'll have a good time. Jamie Foxx gives a good but underwhelming performance as a supporting actor. Vertical Limit was a little more disappointing - while I love Bill Paxton as an actor, he is over the top in this mountain climbing action drama. The very thin plot and poor acting from Chris O'donnell not withstanding, the movie has some decent sequences and some good humor from a pair of extreme climbers/snowboarders/pot smokers. I still would rate this movie behind Stealth as far as appeal, but it's worth a watch.

      2 fun popcorn flicks in HD. See Robin Tunney as a mountain climber who gets in trouble with her team before she got her now repeating role on TV's The Mentalist Also some great climbing footage early in the film as well. Stealth is a pretty good action movie with that frequently recurring SciFi theme about technology with a mind of its own that gets seriously out of control. Not Oscar worthy but some cheap fun nonetheless.

      Stealth is a great action movie with very nice use of jet design. The air combat scenes were awesome with great graphics. The movie kept me in my seat without feeling the need to leave for a snack due to dull moments. What can I say about Vertical Limit? It was free...

      Bought on sale for $4.99 - Initially intended to buy just "Stealth", but it was actually cheaper to buy the combo pack with "Vertical Limit" included. Both are great action/drama films. Each film has its own disc. Buy with confidence and enjoy!

      I've seen Stealth before and I've wanted it for years. It was really hard to find. This one came with Vertical Limit. It's a good movie for how long ago it came out. I'm really happy with this purchase.

      Looks and sounds great with a home theater system. These movies will really rip and roar through your system! Plus they're a great value when on sale.
