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

not bad for syfy
29 July 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

First of all this is a SyFy movie so be warned not to expect too much from their movies. In all honesty this is the best SyFy movie i've seen from them by far (sadly i've seen more than a few)

Do not get your hopes up , it are all the familiar faces again and the usual story arcs but at least this time the writers have made an effort to come up with a story that isn't an insult to anyone with more than 3 working braincells. Then again giving it your full attention may cause pain and irregular bowel movements.

You can see they are learning with every flick they make. Instead of bad cgi they are now using less fx and more suggestion leaving more budget for effects when they really need to have it included.

The acting isn't bad considering the script the actors have to work with but please leave logic at the door.

In short this is a movie for when you want 85 minutes of "no brainer" activity or somethng in the background while you are multitasking but i think the movie works best if you watch it in group with a few drinks so you can slam the scenario or the lines as you go along.

Give it a shot but don't expect to be blown away.
