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

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 »

Alert these checkpoints, distribute his photo, clamp down the neighboring townships.
Sir, the productivity loss...
Dr. William Mailer:
I'm aware of that.
My department will need written authorization, countersigned by central council.

Well, fortunately, your department is part of my department. Now go lock down... and smile while you're doing it.

I am one of the biggest fans alive of the original "Philadelphia Experiment" and have watched it tens of times. Unfortunately this sequel really is a let down compared to it. The script really is pretty hopeless and confusing. There is no love element, little contact with the female sex, and little pleasure derived from the juxtaposition of two time periods that we saw in the first film or in Time after Time. The relationship between Herdeg and his son is not properly developed and far too much of the film is shot in grizzly dark night scenes with little view of the countryside. The film is a little too "scientific" without enough of the human and love elements. For a film of this type to be successful and last in the mind of the
spectator, their needs to be a good balance of love/science/humour/time logic/sets. This film is too gloomy for me and thus spoils what could have been a very good idea. Compare this film with another minor Time-travel film called "Tomorrow Man" and you will see that the latter has far more to offer than this one ! Sorry to be so negative on this one, but couldn't we have had just a little more romance and tenderness to counterbalance the grim scientific side of the film ??????
