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

Melissa George's fearless, credible performance grounds the madness in a moving emotional reality, even as her sanity is lost at sea.

An erratic yet ultimately rewarding time-travel tale...

April 6, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Smith's mind-bending mystery will leave everyone as lost as protagonist Jess, no matter whether they are trapped in an unravelling mind, a never-ending twilight zone - or in the prisonhouse of cinema itself.

December 1, 2010 | Full Review…

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.

A tense and interesting psychological thriller.

Audience Reviews for Triangle

An unusual thriller that deserves credit for its exquisite direction and genuinely oppressive, mysterious atmosphere. But even though the plot seems ingenious and smart, it is in fact too illogical and with so many plot holes that by the end it doesn't really make any sense.

A pleasure boat capsizes during a freak storm and its occupants are rescued by a deserted Ocean Liner inhabited by a mysterious stranger with murderous intent. Triangle is one of those cause and effect paradox stories that science fiction writers are so fond of and reminded me of The Butterfly Effect crossed with Back To The Future 2. Like Twelve Monkeys it obviously owes a debt to La Jetee, but as it concerns itself with the same five characters over the same 90 minute period, it seems far more like small potatoes than Terry Gilliam's film. The premise is simple, having a familiar Twilight Zone feel about it and because of this, once you twig the big twist you know exactly where it's going to go. It's funny, but I feel like I've written this review before...That'll be because it is EXTREMELY similar to Spanish film Los Cronocrimenes released two years earlier. Enough to make me wonder if legal action has been taken. Although "Timecrimes" makes a little more logical sense and requires less in the way of leaps of faith, Triangle's superior production value, more sympathetic lead and superior punchline makes for a better film. Not a bad little mind-bending sci-fi/horror hybrid however, and worth a look if like this type of thing.

[img][/img] A very peculiar film that never lost my interest. Although narratively it develops very absurdly, it's a good quality entry into the cat and mouse suspense genre. Powered by an eery atmosphere, great acting, and a brilliant leading screen presence from Mellisa George. It takes elements from The Shining and doesn't misuse them. Like all the best horror film's the direction is solidly executed and the cinematography is designed perfectly. It's got a believable as opposed to uncliche'd script, and is impressively made on such a small amount of money. By no means a classic but more of a benchmark, in the sense that it isn't the same old psycho flick. That's a brilliant achievement in modern horror cinema.
