Discussions of being good pilots, some deception and disobedience.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of explosions, video-gamey and mostly from the air, so bodies fall away and catch on fire, mostly anonymously.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie features lots of fighter jet action, explosions, drinking (martinis, beer), smoking, tough fighter language, and sexual references, sometimes raunchy (ménage a trois).

Is It Any Good?
The action bits are predictably well-choreographed and boisterous, but also distracting (yes, even in an action movie, too much of a good thing is still too much). Stealth wants to be a smarter movie than it is, posing the cases for and against technological warfare, tracing foibles not only of individuals within the financing and command systems, but also in the systems themselves. A self-declared post-9/11 action movie, it's mightily conflicted, exhilarating in the visuals and visceral effects, but stubbornly clinging a core idea, that war is actually bad -- for everyone.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
