Storyline

In 'The Philadelphia Experiment', a secret government research project tries reviving the World War II "Philadelphia Experiment," which was an attempt to create a cloaking device to render warships invisible. When the experiment succeeds, it brings back the original ship (the Eldridge) that disappeared during the first test in 1943 - which brings death and destruction to the 21st century. It's up to the sole survivor (Lea) of the first experiment and his granddaughter (Ullerup) to stop it. Written by SyFy Official Press Release

Another Sy Fy Original.....
10 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sy Fy gets no respect when it comes to "Another Sy Fy original ....".

This one isn't so bad of a production. But the story really doesn't do any justice to the lore of the Philadelphia Experiment.

I come to Sy Fy channel for simple entertainment, and this movie was OK in this regard. Although I sincerely wish that one day somebody with Steven Spielberg caliber talent would create an Indiana Jones level expose film about the Philadelphia Experiment.

One thing I have to give this movie credit is that it's beautifully shot.

For a low budget movie it's well crafted, and my hats off to the producers for keeping the production quality high.

Not so compelling of a story, and that's the problem of this movie, but this is about the level of production I come to expect from "Another Sy Fy original ....".
