Movie review: The Philadelphia Experiment (2012)

Do Not Watch This Movie.  It is an hour and a half of your life that you will never get back.  The acting is uniformly bad.  The script is bad. (The dialog makes George Lucas look like Shakespeare.)  The movie, of course, centers around the rumors/conspiracy theory of the WWII experiment on the USS Eldridge.  A degaussing experiment on the ship goes wrong, rendering the ship invisible and also transporting it thru space and time.  In this version, in the current day, a lab conducting similar experiments based off the original ones open a portal which brings the original ship back from when it disappeared in 1943.  The details of the rest of the plot don’t matter, because, have I mentioned, this movie is BAD.  Don’t watch it.  Go model.  (One interesting piece of trivia.  There have been two movie adaptions of the Philadelphia Experiment, his one and one from 1984.  One actor, Michael Pere is on both movies.)
