SyFy Network Movie = Foregone Conclusion, 28 August 2013
Author: LeonLouisRicci from United States

There is still a chance that the Fortean/UFO/Paranormal Community will see a Movie based on the controversial claims about a Naval Experiment in the 1940's to render a Ship invisible to Radar. It is rife with Colorful Characters with Names like Einstein and Tesla inserted into the Lore. There are elements like Time Travel, Invisibility, and Scientific Parlance like Unified Field Theories and Space Time Continuum to spice things up.

Books have been Written and Talk Radio has had its share of Researchers, Witnesses, and Believers making various claims and tweaking Imaginations. So the Mythology is Rich and just waiting for someone to climb aboard and do it Justice.

So far the 1984 Movie of the same Name is an Entertaining piece of Fluff that is a Fun if Flawed Film. This one is not as good but contains enough of the Story to make it a bit Mystifying but is sunk by its lack of Intelligence and contains only a smidgen of connection to the "Real Life" Experiment. It relies on shoot em ups and is heavy on the Government cliché, lets stop this by blowing things up and if conventional Weapons fail, bring on the Mini-Nukes.

Maybe worth a view but this is a Made for TV Movie that wastes a lot of Money on a lot of Hooey and is another one of those Syfy Originals that continues to embarrass the Network and their Name is almost synonymous with the foregone conclusion of Mediocrity.
