Audience Reviews for Triangle

While it is more convoluted than it needed to be, this film remains intriguing as it compels us to try to understand what is going on, creating a continual sense of confusion that makes it feel like a nightmare and offering a conclusion that is more bitterly ironic than we would imagine.

Twilight Zone meets Groundhog Day as the members of a stranded vessel are saved by a passing ocean liner only to have their situation go unexplainably to hell soon afterwards. It's true that, like a ex-partner, the work doesn't always make sense (and that's one in-your-face let down), but the overall effect is tense enough nonetheless to keep one engaged until the questionable conclusion.

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.

I am not even sure where to begin on this movie. A very interesting twist to the standard horror film. Im not going to try and explain it as Im not even sure I got it all yet. . .
