The Philadelphia Experiment 2 is a 1993 science-fiction movie, directed by Stephen Cornwell and starring Brad Johnson, Marjean Holden, and Gerrit Graham. It is a sequel to the 1984 film The Philadelphia Experiment. The movie is set in 1993, and it tells the story of a group of people who travel through time to find the crew of the USS Eldridge, which disappeared during a military experiment in 1943. The Philadelphia Experiment 2 is an action-packed adventure that will take viewers on a wild ride through time.

The movie begins with the main character, David Herdeg (played by Brad Johnson), who is haunted by his experience in the first movie. He has been experiencing strange visions of his former friend, Jim Parker (played by Gerrit Graham), who disappeared during the first experiment. David's life is further complicated when he is contacted by Alison (Marjean Holden), a scientist who is working on a project to recreate the Philadelphia Experiment. Alison believes that David has the key to unlocking the secrets of the experiment and convince him to help her complete her mission. They hope to go back in time to the 1940s and find Jim Parker, who is still alive, trapped in time.

The plot thickens as the team travels back in time to the 1943 experiment, only to find that the USS Eldridge is still trapped in time and the crew missing. They must race against time to find Jim Parker and prevent him from altering history. The story takes a twist when they discover that the US government is behind the experiments, and they will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

Despite the different plot, the movie does a good job of connecting with the original film's storyline, allowing fans of the first movie to appreciate the sequel's motives. The movie has a potent theme of time-travel, and it explores the paradoxes and complications of altering history. The characters are compelling, and the actors have an excellent chemistry on screen. Brad Johnson's performance as the main character is strong, and it's evident that he has a deep understanding of his character's motivations.

The special effects are impressive and add to the overall allure of the movie. The filmmakers do a good job of recreating the 1943 period, making the audience feel like they are watching a movie set in that time. The time-traveling gadgets used to travel back to the past are futuristic, but the design has the slightly dated feel of early 90s sci-fi movies.

One of the movie's shortcomings is that it doesn't go much further than the original concept of the Philadelphia Experiment. It doesn't offer any new developments, and some scenes from the movie will feel familiar to viewers of the first film. The plot has an acceptable pace, but at times it feels rushed, and viewers may struggle to keep up with the twists that the story takes.

The Philadelphia Experiment 2 is a fun movie that should be enjoyed as a standalone movie or as a sequel to the original film. It's loaded with action, science-fiction, and time-traveling concepts that will fascinate fans of the genre. Although it has its flaws, it is still an enjoyable movie that is worth watching, especially for those who are fans of science-fiction or Brad Johnson.

The Philadelphia Experiment 2 is a 1993 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5.
