Modest low-budget science fiction which sees a US naval ship, the subject of a cloaking experiment during WWII, miraculously transported 40 years into the future.
Despite obvious financial restraints, the film is generally entertaining, although its attempts at carving a love story into the plot are unnecessary and the claims that it's based on a true story are a bit too far-fetched.
