An unsuspecting, disenchanted man finds himself working as a spy in the dangerous, high-stakes world of corporate espionage. Quickly getting way over-his-head, he teams up with a mysterious femme fatale.
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

In the alternate 1993 where the Nazis had conquered the U.S., no German was spoken by anyone including the soldiers and guards. It seems unlikely that The descendants of the Nazi's that occupied the U.S. would somehow switch to English. In addition to this, Mailer seems to be having trouble communicating in German when he meets his father in 1943. It's very unlikely the descendants of the occupying Nazis would abandon their home language and not force the surviving U.S. civilian population to learn German. No explanation for this is offered.

Dr. William Mailer:
What went through your mind on your way here?
Truth is twisted, who's responsible?
Dr. William Mailer:
Well, responsibility is, generally, one of those things claimed by the righteous, whereas consequences are assigned to the meek. What's your choice?
Strength... to make the right choice.

OK, so this isn't a great movie. And it isn't really a sequel to the original Philadelphia Experiment movie. But once you get past the first 10 minutes or so, it's a decent "what if" alternate-universe story, with a fun performance by Gerrit Graham in a TRIPLE role, and some occasional wry humor. At least as good as the average episode of shows like Star Trek and Quantum Leap.
Some elements of the movie (the use of tattooed bar codes to track people, for example) are clever and thoughtful, while others verge on silly. But overall, it's pretty good. I'd rate it 6 out of 10. Give it a try; you probably won't be disappointed.
