Fantastic experiment during WWII winds up throwing two sailors into future world

Based on an "actual event" that took place in 1943 and set during WW2 , a ¨Philadelphia experiment¨ about invisibility and involving an anti-radar goes wrong , causing an USS naval battleship -Navy Destroyer Escort- to disappear from the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard , Virginia , by means of a warp time . A pair of sailors (stars Michael Pare and Bobby DiCicco) find themselves thrown into a temporary hole and sent 40 years into the future . Then they find in modern world of 1984 and a cataclysm that threatens to destroy it and change the course of history . Meanwhile , they meet a beautiful girl(costars Nancy Allen) who help them .

This is a far-fetching but acceptable story about two sailors traveling forward in time to just to discover weird incidents and save the world . Reportedly (?) based on a true events that are developed with intrigue , suspense , thrills and noisy action . Familiar but satisfying and agreeable Sci-Fi yarn . Just amusement enough to cover production gaps and some flaws . Fine special effects for that time and liking performances by the leads manage to keep this one afloat . Good support cast as Louise Latham and Stephen Tobolowsky , among others . Colorful cinematography by Dick Bush and atmospheric musical score by Wannberg. The motion picture was professionally directed by Stewart Raffill . He's an expert on adventure genre as ¨Across the Great Divide¨ , ¨Sea Gypsies¨ and science fiction as ¨Ice pirates¨ , ¨Mc and Me¨ and of course this one . It's followed by an inferior sequel titled ¨Philadelphia experiment II ¨ with Brad Johnson . Rating : Acceptable and passable fare although better viewed in big screen .

Science Fiction teaser and fun to watch.

There are some mess-ups with technical stuff in the movie, but for me that did not take away from the movie, I enjoyed all of it, and thought some of the special effects were pretty good. It was well worth my time, and after it ended, I felt that I had seen a good movie, that's more than I can say for some movies now-a-days. Rent or own, in my humble opinion it is worth the price, I would own it:)

Worth Watching

I have heard of the "Philadelphia Experiment" before and read about it on the web but got the chance to watch this movie 33 years after its being made. The direction, execution, acting and the way it unfolded was extremely impressive. The story was well established and it goes according to the facts revealed on the internet. It was a fun to watch and did not allow me to waste a second as it was very much interesting and worth watching. I gave this movie 9 out of 10 as being a masterpiece keeping in view the technological advancements of the 80's. The acting of Michael Pare was excellent and he did what could be the best of his role. I recommend it to all of you who like to watch science fiction and time travel movies.
