5.0 out of 5 stars Good film
Not seen this film since the 80's and thought it was brill, then there was a sequal.
Didn't know there was a remake, not seen these yet.
But anyone buying one who doesn't know, I would recommend the 80's one

This is not a remake of the original film for those who actually saw it, but rather one that builds upon the myth of the incident known as the Philadelphia Experiment. In the superior 1984 film, 2 sailors transport to the future, not the entire ship.

This review is from: Philadelphia Experiment (1984 & 2012) [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this for my partner who remembers the original back in the 70's and it was great to see not only that one again but also the new version. Both are well worth the money.

This is not a remake of the original film for those who actually saw it, but rather one that builds upon the myth of the incident known as the Philadelphia Experiment. In the superior 1984 film, 2 sailors transport to the future, not the entire ship.

In modern times, a private company contracted to the military recreates the magnetic flux from the first experiment (actually I thought it was radar, but who cares). They managed to make the WWII destroyer appear in Pennsylvania. Lt. Bill Gardner from 1943 (Nicholas Lea) leaves the ship in 2012...in the same town where he lived. His granddaughter's boyfriend happens to enter the ship and get trapped on it. This coincidence was less believable than the magnetic field which can transport huge objects through space and time. Oh BTW for some poorly explained reason, the government wants Bill dead which leads to ridiculous conflict between people who both want to make the problem go away.

The special effects were CG and at times worse than others. The film incorporates the myth the men were trapped inside metal bulkheads. Bill adjusts to modern times fairly well, something they could of had more fun with, if they hired a comedy writer.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.
