- "Sci-Fi Inside: The Triangle" featurette
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
