Editorial Reviews

Sam Neill, Eric Stolz, Catherine Bell. A spectacular sci-fi experience in which billionaire Eric Benirall handsomely pays a team of four specialists to investigate how and why his cargo ships keep disappearing within the waters of the Bermuda triangle. But before very long, the journalist, the scientist, the nautical engineer and the psychic are uncovering such bizarre truths that they doubt if any amount of money was worth it. 2 DVDs. 2005/color/2 hrs., 15 min/NR/widescreen.

Format:DVD
Billionaire and shipping mogul Eric Benirall (Sam Neil)contacts four people (Eric Stoltz, Bruce Davidson, Catherine Bell and Michael Rodgers)with expertise in different from psychic ability to weather conditions with one skeptical reporter in the mix to discover why his ships keeping disappearing in the Sargasso Sea or the Bermuda Triangle. When a 747 goes down into the area and they investigate they discover the plane looks like its been submerged for fifty or sixty years. When they come back from the region they begin having strange experiences suggesting that reality has somehow been altered for them.

A fun diversion, "The Triangle" comes with a good pedigree; it's written by Rockne O'Bannon who created "Farscape" based on a story by O'Bannon, Bryan Singer (director of "The X-Men", "Superman Returns" and "The Usual Suspects")and Dean Devlin (co-producer and writer of "Independence Day" and "Stargate"). These three come up with a unique story that is an involving and fascinating puzzle.

Lion's Gate has the mini-series on two discs with a play all feature for the episodes. There's also a promotional featurette that ran on the Sci-Fi Channel included. The extras are disappointing to say the least with no commentary track, no featurettes on the production (outside of the promo one)or the visual effects on the show. The image quality of the series is top notch throughout most of the set although some of the night scenes could have used a bit more contrast.

Overall this is a fine mini-series with some top notch performances that recalls "The X-Files" in terms of the strong plotting and mystery. While the second episode felt stretched a bit the show is an entertaining diversion. This is a terrific set despite the lack of extras and well worth watching if you're a science fiction or fantasy fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Acting. Good Story. June 26, 2006
Format:DVD
I rented Triangle of a whim at a local video store. Honestly, I exopected it to be a flop. Most sci-fi projects have a huge cheese factor, or are full of bad acting. The Triangle was anything but bad.

The acting was incredible, the plotting was strong, the characters were three dimensional, the special effects engaging, and the story? Well, the story was good enough to turn well worn ground (The Bermuda Triangle) into a fresh delight.

I highly recommend this mini-series.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Triangle: Old Equation, New Solution January 24, 2006
Format:DVD
The latest in a growing line of slick miniseries produced by the Sci-Fi Channel, Dean Devlin and Bryan Singer's The Triangle draws from a number of standard sci-fi story elements in an effort to provide an original take on a tired enigma. While the miniseries concerns itself with a mystery long celebrated as unsolvable, The Triangle keeps itself from descending into maddening vagueness by demanding concrete answers from both its characters and its story. That's not to say this story is not enigmatic, but this is a brain-teasing puzzle with a surprising solution. Writer Rockne S. O'Bannon should be commended. The Bermuda Triangle here is more intriguing than it has ever been, kept entertaining by the slow revealing of the shadowy sources of its power. The threat escalates as the film progresses and scientific theories--ranging from wormholes to alternate realities to exotic matter--are blended into an engaging, reality-threatening cataclysm of apocalyptic proportion. At the outset, single ships are threatened but by the time of the paradoxical climax, the globe hangs in the balance. The inevitable time-travel is elegantly handled amidst all of this and the endgame is both intelligent and stunning.

The acting here is above average, too, and each of the leads elevates not only their character's role but the film's believability as well. Eric Stoltz, Bruce Davison, Catherine Bell, and Michael E. Rodgers are excellent as a team of unique experts in unusual fields of study. Keeping the story emotionally grounded is Lou Diamond Phillips, whose individualized subplot allows us to experience the film's reality-altering oddness through the eyes of an everyman. The miniseries is beautifully produced, nicely photographed, and the considerable visual effects are always impressive.

4.0 out of 5 stars One side of the triangle May 19, 2006
Format:DVD
Good mini series from the sci-fi channel. What elevates this offering is the cast. Take all the movies about the Bermuda Triangle and squeeze them together and you have the plot. This show may have gotten 5 stars if the plot lines were thinned down a bit and the remaining expanded. All in all it is a fun thing to watch. It can definitely spark the dorm room bull session with the right company of viewers, those who believe or would like to believe in things beyond our perception. If you think the triangle is just a load, skip it. The rest of us, enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Impressive Work from a Year Known for Sci-Fi TV June 17, 2010
Format:DVD
It wasn't overly apparent at the time, but 2005 is quickly becoming a year known for its primetime science fiction television. Don't take my words for it- you could sit down and watch Lost, Surface, Invasion, Threshold, and The 4400 without having to endure a single rerun. SyFy, back then the SciFi Channel, understood that the world at large was suddenly celebrating what was supposed to be their niche and came out swinging with a miniseries created by and starring some serious heavy hitters.

Enter The Triangle, a 255-minute picture that reads like a Hollywood blockbuster rather than a made-for-television miniseries. Written by the powerhouse trifecta Bryan Singer (of the first two X-Men films, Superman Returns and the upcoming Battlestar Galactica film), Dean Devlin (Independence Day and Stargate), and living legend Rockne O'Bannon (Farscape and Alien Nation), the production crew was certainly taking no shorts. The cast, it would turn out, would be no less qualified to deliver the goods.

The story centers on billionaire shipping magnate Eric Benirall (played perfectly by Jurassic Park's Sam Neill) who has a record of losing ships in the Bermuda Triangle. In addition to the resulting financial loss, he begins experiencing troubling hallucinations. Having enough with the mystery, he assembles a motley group of "experts" to provide a reasonable explanation for the mysteries haunting the Bermuda Triangle for centuries.
