Triangle

Triangle is spicy nice little film. Among all the plasticy and plain taste commercial options, it will certainly make you remember, intrigue you and get you to talk about it for a while.

Our single mum girl left home for a sailing day getaway. A sudden storm over-turned the boat and the survivors had to board a cruise ship knowing little about whats awaiting. And obviously, it wouldn’t be comedy, as our JAS here in BB avoided linking a trailer to reserve the surprise for the upcoming viewers.

Without ruining JAS's effort I certainly can't/shouldn't spoil the plot any further, if your mum's bedside drawer you will be seriously worded by mum, monthly allowance canned by dad, and you might suffer post trauma just by what you witnessed unauthorised. And as all food lover know, if you know everything about how a food is made it might really start to taste less interesting. There you go JAS.

I expected the movie to have blood and scary moment, and told my gf that it was a horror movie. There sure are some horrific moments and they were well handled, and they go on to stunt you some more than just behind-the-doors and screams. For people who can handle a little thrill spice and plot originality it sure will be a choice packed with flavour.

To be fair, the acting in the movie is not that spot on. From time to time it shows the trace of over or under acting, though never drifted far from the center; the CGI was a force-believe, it could be done way better 10 years ago, but the movie makers obviously didn’t care. It is over all a low budget movie which belongs to the bucket with Mulholland drive or the Cube or Momento, or Run Lola Run, with the Prestige as an exception; the Triangle is not a polished film but the mindset behind it is there. The movie is not to show you some nice things to look at; it is there to show you some things to think about, if you are up for it.

To that the movie did solid job. It left a few things open for you to connect and make up for, or we called the plot holes in Avatar, but it certainly does keep u interested and focused.

Watching the Trangle is like biting on a wrap in a brown paper bag. It looked like nothing fancy but sure packed that spicy punch. Sure it is greased and cheap to buy, but nothing stops you to enjoy that zing and it keeps you to take another bite until you finish it all, and still licking your fingers for the juice. Would it taste better if I tell you what’s in the wrap? I guess it doesn’t matter cos the ingredient list sure weren’t going to tell you what it taste like. Go find out.

For treat like this, JAS will re-visit for times and I, I will just write a review and telling everyone through facebook.

By no means is it masterful, but it is interesting and reasonably well handled. The script is pretty good especially since it manages to tie everything up regardless of the mess it makes (intentionally).

Thanks for the review, Que!

no, it is not a muster piece. and maybe even too many loose ends for users to make up for. however by looking at my options right now, walking out of Robin Hood and next will be Prince of Persia, Triangle sounded and worked out wonderfully.

We're gonna have to discuss, via chat, what the loose ends are. I thought it tied up neatly, but only after processing what the ending really meant for the character.

sure, and also the situations in the movie. I hope I have a quiet day.

see, this is the part that the movie will keep you talking about it for a while.
