Storyline

David Herdeg's participation in a failed 1943 experiment in radar invisibility has propelled him 40 years into the future. An aberration in his genetic makeup enabled him to pass through the portal of time. It has also made him sensitive to any alteration to the time continuum. Another disasterous experiment in 1993 sends a stealth aircraft through the time portal, into 1943 Germany. Simultaneously, Herdeg is pulled into the portal, and finds himself in the terrifying 1993 that resulted from a Nazi victory in World War II. Written by Kevin Ackley <kackley1@aol.com>

Surprisingly good for a DTV film.
31 March 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Plot Synopsis: In 1993 a more advanced version of the Philadelphia Experiment is created to teleport a stealth fighter between destinations. But during tests David Herdeg, the sole survivor of the original experiment, is thrown into an alternate timeline where the Nazis have won World War II by bombing Washington with nuclear weapons. David discovers that the stealth fighter was teleported to 1943 & captured by Nazi scientists. As he fights his way through to the experiment, he must find a way to travel back to 1943 to prevent the jet from taking off on it's mission.

This entry in the sci-fi genre has all the trademarks of a cheap direct-to-video attempt to cash in on the original "The Philadelphia Experiment". But instead of doing a rehash of the original, the film creates a whole new plot. The story is quite sophisticated for a time paradox situation & is well shot for a DTV film, injecting some atmosphere into the mix. But the film does not quite pull it off too successfully, with the villain being a bit on the campy side. Brad Johnson makes a far better hero than Michael Pare did in the original.
