Synopsis:
In 1943, a secret government project attempted to create a cloaking device that would make warships invisible. But during the first test, the USS Eldridge successfully vanished... and could not be found again. 70 years later, the Navy destroyer momentarily reappears on a Pennsylvania runway allowing the sole surviving crewman to escape and a local lawman to board. What is behind a sinister reactivation of the project? Where will the massive ship materialize next? And what will become of two men trapped in a time/space catastrophe?

Good update on 1984 version - The Philadelphia Experiment review by RL

Spoiler Alert
05/08/2016

3 decades after the 1984 version, Michael Pare reappears, but not as the hero. This time he took a bit part as a middle aged baddie. He could well have resumed the hero role, as the new hero is not young, handsome nor charismatic. The budget is medium, with good computer graphics to compensate for physical effects that would have been beyond any movie budget. In this respect it's better than the 1984 one; also the plot is more twisty, with more character interplay.

Like it or not, it follows the present day Hollywood style of corporate treachery enforced by police violence, which is the reality of this era. The corporate baddies are the best actors, who you will love to hate. All in all it's a decent bit of sci-fi, based on an allegedly true event.
