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

Absolute Pitiful
23 December 2012 | by mikeclymerSee all my reviews

I saw the first movie of 1984, it was great. This one hardly made any sense at all. If most people don't like a movie they rate it a B movie. This one truly deserves deserves a D rating if their is such a rating. You like a movie to make some feasible sense, what were you all thinking about. Did your right hand not know what your left hand was doing........ Brother...... Some of the actors were good in the show and some were down right awful. The director must have had a hang over or something. He wasn't piecing together anything that that I could swallow. If I were one of those actors I would not admit that I made that movie. Just tell them that wasn't you, it was a look a like.
