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 »

Truth is twisted, who's responsible?

Strength... to make the right choice.

Almost leading man falls back to the B's with OK sci-fi yarn
PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT 2 (PG-13) - Vidmark Video (Original 1994 VHS distributor): After a brief flirtation with the Big Screen in (in 1989's ALWAYS and 1991's FLIGHT OF THE INTRUDER) Brad Johnson begins what could be his journey back to the B-pic obscurity from which he sprang with this decent, albeit cheap, sequel to the first PHILLY EXPERIMENT. Johnson, replacing Michael Pare from the 1984 flick, finds himself `shifted' into an alternate 1993 - one in which Germany won World War II - when a power-mad scientist (Gerrit Graham) tinkers with the timeline by sending a stealth bomber back to the Germans circa 1943.
Although it assumes you've seen its predecessor, and plays sketchy several plot details, this is still a skillfully constructed, resourceful sci-fi adventure. I give it an 8.
