Predictable. You already know how it is going to end. It was still decent entertainment though.
The enemy is the classic “evil countries” from the American perspective, i.e. Russia and North Korea. I guess that will never change.
It is quite fancy tech for the fighter jets, but not close to realistic in my opinion. This adds to the brainless action factor for this movie.

Jessica Biel is super hot, but if you manage to disregard that she does an amazing job. She is the voice of reason, and you sense the caution of her character. She also does a big part of the on-ground peril/action scenes, which were executed very well.
The lead character is played by the actor Josh Lucas, who was not known to me before this movie, and I think I understand why. His performance was not memorable at all.
Jamie Foxx got the role of the comic sidekick. He does it all right, but the role just seems very stereotypical. Not his fault, just poor writing.

If you get super excited about movies with jet airplanes, fighter jets, stealth airplanes etc., this might be something worth watching for you. For me, though, it did not really light my fire.
