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

Terrible attempt at producing a remake...
2 August 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Ingredients for an utter failure but still watchable enough for mainstream viewers: Add a couple Barbie's, mix some special effects, come up with anything resembling a loose story, put on some techno music and last but not least include some thugs to add to the pace of the movie.

A result to be proud of: An extremely weak remake of the original movie which the mainstream (also called mass-) audience might even like! This is to what "sci-fi" TV movies have come down to...

This is a disgrace to television coming from the U.S.A... Money doesn't seem to be the problem here, creativity is. Where are the original concepts and hits?!
