Action adventure starring Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx as U.S. Navy pilots who are part of a close-knit elite division of test pilots flying highly classified stealth fighter jets, referred to only as Talons. They're the best of the best and they know it. Then their commanding officer Captain George Cummings (Sam Shepard) introduces the team to their new wingman - an artificial intelligence-based UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle), nicknamed 'EDI.' Although Ben (Lucas) is hesitant about taking 'the human pilot out of the equation of war,' Cummings orders the team to execute their first real mission alongside 'EDI.' To their amazement, 'EDI' proves to be a cracker-jack wingman and they successfully eliminate their target. But on the return trip to their base aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson, 'EDI' is struck by lightning. The drone's brain expands in ways its creators could never have predicted. Despite Ben and Henry's (Jamie Fox) reservations, Cummings declares 'EDI' ready to rejoin the team in the air. On their next mission against a nuclear-armed warlord in a remote Chinese province, 'EDI's' seriously compromised circuitry problems only get worse. Ben decides that the risks of the attack far outweigh the benefits to himself, Henry and Kara (Biel). When he aborts the mission, 'EDI' goes against orders and executes the hit anyway. The danger escalates when 'EDI' decides to execute a top-secret mission that, if successful, could spiral into worldwide nuclear Armageddon. And only Ben can prevent it.
