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

Argh ..... wasted effort
2 March 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I had looked forward to this and I was so disappointed. What a wonderful movie the first was ..... and now this

Acting awful despite good actors .... must be the directors fault.

There are under-laying music during the whole movie which is properly the only way they thought they could get excitement up with the viewers.

Its just awful, awful, awful.

What a shame ....... it could really have been good

Why would anybody do this and spoil the memory of an excellent movie is pitiful.
