Leakier than a hedgehog's cagoule, and you'll be picking holes in the plot long before the end.

The film would have been better served by a stronger sense of the metaphor it was trying to construct, but as it is, the unravelling of the puzzle is underwhelming.

If you're a fan of Christopher Smith's previous work and want to see his cinematic maturation, it's definitely worth seeing Triangle as it certainly isn't a complete loss.

The real mystery, mind you, is how a film this dreadful ever got made.

The film only makes some kind of sense on its own fantastic level.

Until a film-maker can square that circle of repetition, time loop movies will continue to bore.

Echoing the tone of a wicked childhood nightmare, Triangle suggests big things are back on the horizon for Christopher Smith, even if he hasn't quite hit a home run just yet.

A decent supernatural thriller undone by an unfortunate structural flaw.

Triangle is one of the most ingeniously constructed horrors of recent years, and one you'll want to watch again to get your nicely baffled head around.

A tense and interesting psychological thriller.

If you can get past its logical inconsistencies - and they are legion - it's not bad.

April 6, 2010
A crisp and refined little mind-bender that gets pretty contorted, but makes just enough sense to deliver a strong finalé.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

The story springs several leaks, but a cool concept, striking set-pieces and an outstanding central performance manage to keep Christopher Smith's vessel afloat.

October 12, 2009
The sort of brainy, twisty thriller that keeps you wondering what the hell's going on while still managing to keep you engrossed.

Destined to become a fully-fledged classic of the horror genre.

Triangle leaves you feeling no less lost, confused and full of despair than its heroine Jess (Melissa George) as she struggles, seemingly in vain, against the darker aspects of her own nature.

October 16, 2009
Without question Smith's most mature film to date, and one of the best (and most bewildering) genre films of 2009.
