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

A fine piece of utter crap
30 July 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is up there with the BEST of them. The best of CRAP that is...it looks like it was written by a 13 year old schoolboy and the editing isn't much better. The actors involved in this must've been damned hard up for cash because their talents are totally wasted on this poor excuse for entertainment.

I'm not going to spoil it because there is nothing to spoil. The studio did a fine job of that all by themselves.

Just don't waste your time. Watch a soapie or go out and hire an old 50's scifi. I'm sure they had a thing called continuity and good editing back then. It seems to be a dying art these days.
