I normally will watch a "bad" movie but this one I turned off.
Opitamus Poo
The first movie is coherent with the supposition of experiment really happened, but the second is only bad science fiction.

Then I could go back before I saw the movie and get 98 minutes of my life back.

Reading the variety of reviews here I see that some love this film and prefer it to the first. Some loved the first and didn't like this film. To each his/her own, I suppose. I preferred the original film and eagerly anticipated the sequel when I found out it had been produced.
I saw this movie back in the early 90's but didn't remember much about it except that Brad Johnson was in it, and it didn't seem as good as the first movie. So I ordered the movie used on the internet.
While I was watching the movie, I thought how cool it would be to have a time machine. Then I could go back before I saw the movie and get 98 minutes of my life back. By the time the movie got to the end, it had redeemed itself somewhat. One notable exception was the captivating Marjean Holden whom our hero meets in the (alternate) future. And the German scientist (Gerrit Graham), son of another German scientist from World War II provides (eventually) an interesting double (though it can be fairly argued triple) role.
It must be clearly stated. This movie is totally unlike the first film (except that it includes a bit of footage from the first), so prepare yourself. Apparently they were working on a tight budget and this shows up in the special effects.
I think the screenwriters (or film editors) decided to make the audience experience the same confusion as our hero does when he travels through time (I'm sure that didn't spoil the plot for anyone). For this reason, the film seems oddly disjoint and you have to be patient enough to wait for the ending to fully comprehend what happened. Are there plot holes? Yes, large enough to fly a plane through. But at least the ending brought the film to a (somewhat) logical conclusion. And for that I give the film three stars.

This movie was much better than the first. It made more sense for a time travel story. It continues on with the main character from the first movie living 9 years into the present he was accidentally sent into. From 1984 to 1993. They sure do show he had been there a while with him having his own son from the woman he met in the original picture. I do not understand why they did not have her in the second movie. But this movie did make a lot of sense with German decendants altering history by having their ancestors win World War 2 against the Americans. What great effects of time changing and the story turning out that the U.S. is no longer the free coountry it once was. Now it has been ruled by the Germans and is in honor of Hitler. The main character is the only one not affected becase he is not truly a part of that time line. But in the end he finds a way to travel back and undo the bad guys' work. Then history is set back the way it's supposed to be. It's amazing how he kills the bad guy's father and that results in the slug never being born cause he gets erased from existence. I wonder if there will be a Philadelphia Experiment 3? But I doubt it. No one is a huge fan of these movies. Or at least not from what I see.

THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT was a freshly original film when first released. This follow-up is so muddled and poorly realized that it's hard to tell exactly what is going on. Obviously filmed on a tighter budget, the movie moves at a snail's pace and Brad Johnson is lost in this convoluted and ultimately enigmatic film. Gerrit Graham is like the Klaus Kinski of B-movies, overacting with relish and abandon; it's a shoddy performance to say the least. Any movie that deals with time travel is bound to make some technological flubs, but this movie is bathed in errors. Tension surrenders to confusion and the viewer is left in the shadows of an unexplained vortex. There, did that confuse you enough???

It is probably hard to place David Herdeg [Brad Johnson] in the previous movie -- but he is living now in 1993 with his son -

But someone is conducting another experiment that is altering Herdeg's DNA makeup and zapps him into the future where he sees the way life is likely to end up.

The Philadelphia Experiment is being implementing to transport a Stealth Fighter back to World War II to alter the outcome of the War.

The son of the German Nazi experimentor has stolen some of Herdeg's blood so that he can be transported to 1943 with the plane and meet his father.

How can a man meet his father before he was even born? Quite a mind boggler.

I liked the way the events of time were knocked back into place [so to speak] -- I thoroughly enjoyed all of the Philadelphia Experiment movies and didn't find any of them hard to understand. Probably understanding that anything is possible, especially in the mind of men.

Definitely Recommend this good clean? movie [future looked a bit dirty] especially if you like Brad Johnson. Great ending.

This movie did NOT star Michael Pare. The movie was O.K. The first time I watched it...I did not get it at all! It can be very confusing. If you are a philadelphia experiment/Montauk project buff and have read a lot of books on this subject, you will enjoy it. It has a lot of what if's having to do with time travel. I plan on buying it. The first P/X was the best of the two movies.
