I thought both Lea and Ullerup were extremely good in their roles and their performances made the film all the more enjoyable.

It's sort of a remake of the old movie of the same name which was definitely better and more engaging.

I thought both Lea and Ullerup were extremely good in their roles and their performances made the film all the more enjoyable.

Even more confusing is that the person he sees as his coworker, maybe boss, is obsessed with continuing on and on after it is clearly too dangerous.

There are hardly any details in the movie that it makes it boring, dull, and an unworthy movie to watch.

On the other side the film has its dosage of scare-propaganda towards the positive effects of Nikolae Tesla's inventions.

The Philadelphia Experiment Reactivated is a very entertaining and good movie with a plausible connection to the original movie about the Philadelphia Experiment (1984).

What I enjoyed most about the first half is simply the confusion of the Bill Gardner character as he tries to figure out what went wrong in the 1943 experiment and how it has gotten him placed in 2012.

The story was a great concept with some equally good ideas and moments, but there are one too many moments where it is dull and lacking in any kind of heart or freshness.

Rest of the story is on you or other reviews to waste your time with such an awful movie.

So far the 1984 Movie of the same Name is an Entertaining piece of Fluff that is a Fun if Flawed Film.

To add my own cliché to the movie's, I'd say they built them destroyers well in those days.

It relies on shoot em ups and is heavy on the Government cliché, lets stop this by blowing things up and if conventional Weapons fail, bring on the Mini-Nukes.

The problem is that it is very confusing.

Take one of the better science fiction films of the the past, add an even more intelligent script, superb direction, and excellent production values and you have this stunning remake of the 1984 Philadelphia Experiment.

don't waste your time with this POS .

I thought the early scenes between him and his granddaughter were quite entertaining and I thought the action scenes that followed with the two were well directed.

highly entertaining .

Just don't waste your time.

The action is constant, though tedious at times.

Enjoyable watch, don't know why so many bad reviews.

Interesting, but confusing .

Very Entertaining .

I thought the early scenes between him and his granddaughter were quite entertaining and I thought the action scenes that followed with the two were well directed.

It made me waste 80 minutes of my life that could have been used for something totally useless...

What I enjoyed most about the first half is simply the confusion of the Bill Gardner character as he tries to figure out what went wrong in the 1943 experiment and how it has gotten him placed in 2012.

And, very entertaining it was.

An entertaining movie...

Don't waste your time with this one.
