The first Film was okay and one could image that the experiment although improbable could possibly happen, possibly. The second film of the same name however proved that the script writers and associates had not read or seen the original film in that he USS Eldridge actually reappeared eventually back in the same place and year that it disappeared from. That said, then how come the second film mentioned that it never reappeared and was lost? Shouldn't the title have been The Philadelphia Experiment Revisited or something along those lines? And why did they say that the ship vanished in 1943 and was lost. Was the ship supposed to be stuck in a time limbo or elsewhere in the esoterical nether regions of the space-time continuum? Der!!

What kind of muncho-head, be it a cop or otherwise, would go up to an oddly sparkling lightning-zapping old navy ship stuck in the middle of the runway of a small airport and try to touch it without contacting the headquarters first. Another Der for the script writers. as for the undercover man who continually tried to kill the Eldridge crew-man, well that seemed a bit lame. I would have thought that the crew-man would be more likely brought in for questioning instead as to provide vital information regarding his part in the experiment. But it all turned out in the end and all the bits and bobs loose ends were laced up together rather quickly so as not to cost the film studio too much in the end, if rather awkwardly.

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.

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

I don't often write reviews but having spent an hour and a half that I'll never get back, I felt compelled. Many of the reviews quote the original 1980's version so don't be swayed, this is a completely different bucket of rotting fish. Completely unbelievable and badly edited with unbelievable characters (especially the baddies, not even the American government is that stupid!). Forget this film was ever made and spend your 85 minutes on something meaningful instead.

I loved the original 1984 version and had it on VHS so jumped at the chance to get another copy. Still a great film with no pretensions just a great way to spend 90 minutes.

The 2012 remake I watched as I had some extra time but have since asked myself why? didn't I have some paint to watch drying? It really isn't very good, and is obviously a made for some US video channel film only meant to fill time on the schedule.

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.
