[6.50/10] Triangle (2009)

Triangle (2009)

Short review: No doubt about it, "Triangle" is clever - it doesn't just look smart, but it remains coherent throughout its running time. Attention to detail is paid and even though the initial viewing may leave you confused as you simply haven't got the time to take it all in, after it's over and you've read up about the plot, then things start to fall into place and you come to realize the extent of its brilliance. A fair balance of gore and suspense, "Triangle" is consistently gripping, twisting its way through the events shown in the film, right round 'the loop' and back to the beginning, where the actions and behaviour of the characters become slightly more clear. What the movie does lack is humor. Taking itself far too seriously the pacing needs to release some tension for the next scene to be even more effective. The leading lady, Melissa George takes on the role of a single mother named Jess caring for her young autistic son, but is suddenly plunged into a spiral of chaos as soon as the main plot jumps forward. Her performance is impressive! The other actors provide an exceedingly decent performance considering they're all supporting actors and actresses. In conclusion, "Triangle" is an unexpected little gem - a very original and entertaining film!

  • My Rating: 6.50/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 82% (6.5/10)

Though bit confusing but I think the film was enjoyable. If it reminded me of another movie, it was Memento, because of its implications, rather than it being told backwards.
