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>

The F117A had a range of 930 miles. Even if the Germans had launched it from the closest point in occupied France (over 3,000 air miles), it would run out of fuel and fall into the ocean about 1/3 of the way to Washington. See more »

Why, oh why!
11 September 2000 | by (Cambridge, England.) – See all my reviews

This film has so much potential, and is ruined by corner cutting, and lack of any attention to detail. If this had been done properly, the idea could have produced one of the great films of all time. Alas, it was not to be and the quality of acting (whilst usually bearable) sometimes makes the film difficult to watch. With a bit more thought, some kind of accurate historical references (apart from to the first film), and a modicum of knowledge of Stealth technology (It wouldn't be called stealth if it was still louder as a Jumbo jet) the Philadelphia Project 2 could have been a thrilling, interesting alternative to Fatherland. Unfortunately through lack of thought, it's widely regarded as a big pile of tunky. Anyone fancy funding a remake?
