Triangle Movie Review

Jess (Melissa George of The Amityville Horror and 30 Days Of Night) and a small group take a boating trip out to sea, where they encounter an unexpected storm. They hang onto the capsized boat until a mysterious ship comes along, but after they board it things get even worse. Unfortunately, to say too much more about the plot would be a major spoiler. It is easy to get frustrated early by this movie because it moves slow in the start, the special effects, especially of the storm, reminds you of a cheap made for television movie, and once they board the ship it starts to come off as a Ghost Ship rip off. However, once this movie starts, it really takes off on a mind-bending journey that will leave you hooked and wondering right up to the end (and possibly beyond).

"A little help?"

George does a typically outstanding job here, and the rest of the cast is actually pretty likeable as well. The plot makes the movie, and the real key to the film (as I saw it anyway) is explained in passing and very briefly during a conversation. That is actually something I love about this movie--you have to pay attention, even when it seems nothing important is going on, because you find out later just how important some of the stuff is. After the slow start, Triangle becomes a pretty entertaining, and as I said before, a mind bending film. I recommend it.
