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 as bad as all that...
12 January 2014 | by Lars-Toralf StorstrandSee all my reviews

The Philadelphia Experiment Reactivated is a very entertaining and good movie with a plausible connection to the original movie about the Philadelphia Experiment (1984). However, the reintroduction of Michael Paré as a different character than David Herdeg, screws things somewhat up. He didn't change that much.

That fact aside, it is fair to say that the film has a decent story, a good plot, but what pulls a little bit down is the poor choice of actors for some of the roles.

On the other side the film has its dosage of scare-propaganda towards the positive effects of Nikolae Tesla's inventions. It seems that some people (yes, I know this seems like conspiracy theory) are really scared of Tesla's inventions coming into everyday use by common man.

Anyway it is reasonable and good entertainment.
