Buy it... if you're prepared to hear Travor Rabin's basic theme construction and library samples presented over the harsh electronica rhythms of David Arnold.

Avoid it... if you value an intelligent level of complexity in your scores that may never exist for any Rob Cohen film, and certainly not this one.

Stealth: (Brian Transeau) Why bother? Really, the quality of director's Rob Cohen films must be contributing, in some minor form or another, to the gradual dumbing down of America. From XXX to The Fast and the Furious, and now with the ultra-dumb Stealth, there seems no purpose to these video game films other than to a) develop video games from them, and b) make lots of stuff blow up. Spectacularly unrealistic and frightfully illogical, W.D. Richter's script for Stealth actually tries to touch on an ethical debate contemplated in films since 2001. What happens if the ultra powerful and sleek new flying drone of the military is magically struck by lightning and given an intelligence of its own? And what then if it starts downloading songs from the Internet and destroying innocent targets? Only the guys who get off on a flyboy buzz will find anything redeeming in Stealth, and amid its scenes of exploding and crumbling skyscrapers or utterly ridiculous dialogue from supposedly the same military that is currently dying in Iraq, critics took turns beating it to a lowly 30 million dollar return (lowly for this type of film) at the domestic box office. Cohen seems to enjoy accompanying these action films with an electronica/orchestral combination in the scores, and for Stealth, he would reteam with Brian Transeau, otherwise known as "BT" in his own remix and production career. Transeau makes a living doing dance remixes for movies as well as remixing artists such as Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, Diana Ross, Seal, and Tori Amos for album production. In the case of Stealth, he would continue composing in algorithmic codes and building artificial instruments on computer, but would also incorporate 100 orchestral players into that mix. "The exciting thing is getting to incorporate some of this musical technology," Transeau says. "You have these real polarities, these big pieces of orchestral music versus this crazy punk-rock sounding code." That quote will tell 95% of the readers of this review all they need to know as far as their purchasing decision on Stealth is concerned.
