Ocean + Triangle = I thought it's about them stranded in Bermuda Triangle, well I'm glad that I'm wrong. It's been a long time I watched a movie that makes me keep guessing on what is this all about.
Such a well made and executed plot which keeps wondering what is really happening till the end. This movie does not lay the answers easily to the audience whereby it requires you to process the plot properly in order for you to understand on what's really going on.
'Driver' towards the end made this clearer on what's the whole story all about. Well, it's proven literally nothing in our hand to change the fate / destiny.
Please watch it, it's a steady pace movie with an solid good plot.
The only hole that bothers me in this movie is what happened to Heather (or why is she in the movie). Besides that, it's a great filme based on greek mythology
The idea of the main character getting is some kind of loop hole, be it purgatory, her going crazy, the bermuda triangle or whatever is pretty interesting. For me especially the greek interpretation.
But holy shit was it boring. As soon as you pick up on the idea of the loop there's no reason to keep watching. You already know it'll end on her being stuck in there forever. There's nothing else there to keep it interesting or scary. Most incidents are clear to you one minute before they happen and all you see is things repeating themselves, but it doesn't add anything to the story and then you have to watch scenes multiple times.
The dialogue had some foreshadowing and meaning to it, but the characters were so cliche and at some times just dumb. (ex. watching the storm come and not immediately heading back). The acting was mediocre too. All the main character does is look confused/scared the whole movie, which leads me to my next point.
Being a horror movie it didn't scare me either. All she does is "act" like she's in a horror movie because there's literally nothing to be afraid of in the first 30 min and as soon as you get the idea nothing else happens or gets under your skin. The characters don't matter either, they're just there for the plot (ex the girl who drowns is there so you think it's her blood on the ship, which obviously it isn't) The cliched music cues and sounds were just annoying.
So yeah. The idea was ok, maybe great. I can't really say because the rest was horrible.
I always recommend this movie as part of my “mind fuck” suggestions. Its such a unique concept and there were things that I didn’t even catch and had to look up later. Definitely a movie that requires lots of Reddit reading afterwards. A fun one to theorize over and potentially watch again to see if you can catch little things!
Wow. Bad on so many levels! Acting, casting, plot. This movie was over in the first 15 min. And I'm a big horror fan saying that. The only ppl that think this is great are too dumb to figure out the twist early.
If you're open-minded, attentive, and ready for something slightly different, chances are that you'll love this movie. I certainly enjoyed it.
So fukin well made, with hidden message of Sisyphus rolling stone into hill and watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever. Really awesome movie, ending was just osom, was wondering whole movie, how it will ends and it was great ending, like in Sisyphus legend. . RECOMMENDED
I wouldn't say "Triangle" broke any new ground. It's looks nice has some horribly gross moments and at times builds up a decent amount of suspense. It isn't scary but it leaves you edgy especially during the first act. After that it turns into a Horror movie version of "Groundhog Day". The main character keeps reliving the same day and leaves herself messages which kind of reminded me of "Memento" but in reverse. The problem is that I forgot much of what happened just moments after it ended.Even though it looks slick it's characters are the usual cast of Twenty-somethings that we don't give two shakes about and I think that's what disappoints the most about this. When characters die it has no impact because they are just so generic.The ending left me scratching my head too. I wanted to leave my thoughts on how things concluded here but I'd have to watch this again a few times and its really not that interesting.
genuinely enjoyable if you go in without knowing the plot. i highly recommend it that way. even when i was ahead of the film and figured out the twist, going into it blind kept me invested even when i knew what was going on. i imagine knowing anything more about the plot than the idea of there being a loop would really take away from the experience. i do have to echo the sentiment of why tf heather is a character but other than that, i liked this a lot.
Some interesting horror elements but a story that's so silly it kills those.
not the greatest movie. never-ending time loop. great actress. worth watching once.
If you think this movie is great, suggest you to watch a Spanish movie called Los Cronocrímenes aka Timecrimes, with only 4 actors, tells a awesome time travel story with got awards. Triangle is boring, confusing and in the end predictable and messy.
This film met with mixed reviews and opinions. Personally I really like it. I like Greek mythology and I like time travel/paradox stories so this ended up being right up my alley. It's an interesting story about single mother Jess and some friends that end up on a mysterious ship and soon are getting stalked and killed by unknown assailant. This ends up looping over and over but unlike a normal time loop, this one varies quite a lot. I could say a lot more about it but I would be writing for ages lol.
What I'll conclude this with is...just give this a chance. Excellent story.
Interesting and kind of creative.
This movie is dark and full of plot holes. I did enjoy it never the less. If you want to enjoy it, turn your brain off for the duration of the movie.
I really enjoyed this movie. Seriously how many movies take place in the Bermuda Triangle???
10/10This Movie hasn't aged a day and still holds as the absolute best of it's unique type. This movie is super frickin awesome amazing and I've watched so many times over the years I have to be hitting triple numbers, but I will never ever get board of this phenomenal movie.I've noticed every little hint and change to the point I've matched up the seconds and minutes to certain scenes.I absolutely love these kind of stories, multiple versions and all that and this movie is definitely right at the top of that genre. This movie is perfection how it brings all the events together like off the charts perfection as in the tv show "LOST" Perfection. I love how you are left wondering actually how far back does this time loop go, just how many Jess's are there running round in these damn loops.(Does it go back as far as Jess's birth, Jess's Moms life, further, it's all rather fascinating and I love every single second of it. Was that Death at the end are a Reaper, who knows it's left up to you to decide.
Melissa knocked it out the ball park, I absolutely love her as an actress she's Awesome. This movie is so clever and so well thought out and they just don't make em like this anymore, which is a damn shame but I am really glad Stephen King the master himself has turned his talent to recently doing one called "In The Tall Grass"Where he definitely took his inspiration from "Triangle" for his idea of a time warping, mind bending, wormhole falling,Awesome Multiple realitiesMovie experience.Thank-You Stephen for keeping this extraordinary concept alive.I am super pleased to have them both in my collection.They are the best at what they are and are the only 2 done exceptionally right of their kind.
:heart:x7If you think you know what's going on, you probably don't. This is a bit of a time-loop movie. Which has been done to death, but, this one is a little different. We only watch and stay with one version of Jess in the movie (well, from a certain point). It's fascinating to see how each iteration of the time loop is different, yet the same. Even when you get to the very end of the movie you're still not quite sure if it's going to be the final iteration or not.
How I rate:1-3 :heart: = seriously! don't waste your time4-6 :heart: = you may or may not enjoy this7-8 :heart: = I expect you will like this too9-10 :heart: = movies and TV shows I really love!
Decent time loop movie I expected more from the ending, not completely satisfied. It was a bit confusing at times. Showing multiple bodies of the same person at once was cool tho!
A pretty good mindfuck movie
I'm blown away. Many reviews will say this is a time loop movie. (I would think something like should be spoiler tagged, but that's just me.)
It is not a time loop movie!
What I love about Triangle is that everything that explains what's going on is handed to us on a silver platter early on, yet the important bits to fill in the blanks are parceled out to the viewer at a near-perfect pace throughout the film.
The protagonist, Jess, goes for a first date on a boat with another couple, a single woman who the woman in the other couple invited along, and Victor, a young homeless man who the owner lets live on the boat. Aaaand now that I write that, I wonder if there is any deeper significance to those characters.
The film is beautifully shot. Some of the CGI is awful but that doesn't negatively impact the experience. The way it looked just made sense. I got the sense of a story being shown, and no feeling of an auteur showing off. I don't mind artsy films, but this film was well served by being shot straightforwardly...even if it may not seem straightforward at times. You may wonder why the POV of the camera suddenly goes from straight on the characters to looking down in the characters' backs from atop a staircase. Things like that.
The music and sound design were spot on as well. I just liked this movie a lot.
Loops, holes, time loops and horror. It's not a perfect film but it is a fun one and easy to get lost in while also creating an endless ebb and flow to the film. I had seen this when it first came out and wanted to revisit - glad I did. It may not live up the greats of this specific genre, but it does have a good foothold.
In short: meh. Decent actors, decent plot line, overall okay. It just missed that little bit of extra oomph that would have made it great.
Pretty cool little horror flick. The time loop idea is done well and has a pretty cool twist. There's a couple ways you could look at the movie, and for that reason you could discuss it endlessly. For that reason alone I think it was successful.
This through me for a loop in the most literal sense.
I'm surprised. It's much better than I expected before watch. Nice plot.
Excelent Film, One of the most best written movies out there, my love for greek mythology made this movie even better and excelent actors.
Awesome film, would recommend it to ANYONE!!!
A wonderful film, and makes you think.But there is not sure of his understanding.How it all began!Horror was when she saw copies of her dead friend.This film made me feel nervous for hours.
