Tue Oct 13 2009

It’s déjà vu all over again for the heroine of Chris Smith’s mind-bending psychological thriller, which marks a quantum leap forward from ‘Creep’ and ‘Severance’. During a weekend sailing trip, a freak wave capsizes Greg’s yacht, forcing him, single mother Jess (Melissa George) and a group of his friends to board a passing ocean liner. Onboard the mysteriously empty ship, all the clocks have stopped, the ‘Shining’-like corridors are spookily silent, and Jess has an uncanny feeling that she’s been here before. Then a hooded figure starts hunting them down and killing them one by one. Shotguns are fired, fire axes are wielded and bodies pile up on the decks. Fiendishly constructed, this plays like a dark, disturbing ‘Twilight Zone’ episode. Events repeat themselves but are subtly different each time, so we share, as well as observe, Jess’s spiralling sense of dislocation. Melissa George’s fearless, credible performance grounds the madness in a moving emotional reality, even as her sanity is lost at sea.

If you haven't seen this movie (Triangle - 2009) then you haven't seen the absolute best horror/thriller ever made. Even after watching it 3+ times, it continues to haunt me even more severely than the first time.

Really good movie. I enjoyed it. Great story. Suspenseful. It keeps you guessing til the end, Last year I wanted to buy it on DVD but I had a hard time finding it. Perhaps I'll have some better luck finding it online.

i just watched the movie just then and it is really hard to understand unless you have the patience. i believe that if she did do it over again by the time she got back home and in the car driving with her son she would try and miss the truck because she had memorys of everything else that happened. anyways it is a briliant movie even know i cant stand movies that keep repeating themselves until they fix the problem. if you like this movie try watching "ground hog day" very similiar but in this movie eventually the problem is fixed.

I watched this movie 6 times since 2009. EVERY time I understand more little things about the movie. Look up the story of SISYPHUS son of "Aoleus". He made a promise to death as it says in the movie. At the end the main actress Jess promises the taxi driver she would come back and pay but breaks her promise. So like the myth of Sisyphus goes she had to do something over and over again for all of eternity. Sisyphus had to push a boulder up a hill only to watch it roll back down.

This film closely resembles the karmic life cycle theory in Hinduism. The lady has to play out the actions all over again repeatedly as the stock of karmic cycle is yet to get exhausted. She has scars of the previous cycle which she tries to set right in the succeeding loop. And the loops go on endlessly. Much like the karmic cycle in Hinduism. It is also somewhat aligned with the parallel universe theory that suggests that any action is repeated infinite times within the universe. A brilliant film, but I doubt the makers were inspired by the Vedic philosophy although we cannot discount that outright. Wonder how a bollywood movie like this would fare!

Spoiler**** To clarify a few points, nothing we see in this movie is real, except a "copy" of what had happened at her house and how poorly she treated her son. It is implied that she cracks and kills her son, that's why she is being forced to relive this loop of events as referenced to the Greek mythology. The car crash at the end is not real, it is her in the afterlife trying to save her son. Nothing on the boat or the ship is real. The goal is to make it back to her house and prevent herself from killing her son, though she doesn't know yet. I believe she may make it past the car crash in the future but it will always end in their deaths because that is her punishment. When she goes back to dock at the end of the movie, she still remembers everything because she says sorry to her friend, sorry for killing him and planning to kill him again, but when she falls asleep on the boat, her memory erases. Too bad silly people who can't understand this give the movie a bad rating and tell others not to watch. Don't say that, others may be smarter than you and figure it out!

It's sad that people who clearly lack the intelligent thinking to figure out a film that doesn't tie up neatly in a bow and does the thinking for you. This film requires critical thinking and paying close attention to the answers given. The main actress is either paying the price for abusing her son or possibly (as suggested by another review) murdering her son. When she finally makes it outside her house and is listening to herself abuse her son, she weeps, possibly at the knowledge that she is about to kill her son. Which is why she goes in and hacks that version of herself up, to save her son. She may always die at the point she crashes in the car, or maybe she makes it further at some points, but she always will die and start the loop over. She goes back on the boat to try again remembering everything until she falls asleep on her friends boat at which time her memory resets itself and she has to figure it out all over again. Brilliant film! I wish there were more films out there that requires this level of intellectual thinking!

I viewed this film for the first time last night. It's been out since 09 so it's been around for a while. To be brief I thought it was an interesting movie. A bit tedious on the replays but an important aspect to show the length of the cycle she was trapped in. i agree with the symbolic reference to the mythological storyline but it probably goes much deeper than that. I will delve into that question in another post but for now I have not seen reference to the number 237. Coincidental that the room # on the ship where much transpired and the address number of the house was 237. May possibly been in the number on the boat and other places. I will have to watch again to be sure. I would guess there is some symbolism to it's recurrence in the movie and may open another tangent for the storyline.

इसमें कोई शक नहीं है कि यह फिल�म बेहद सोचनीय है। यह आपके दिमाग की चूलें हिला देती है। इस फिल�म को देखकर जो मैं सम� पाया हूं वह यह कि -- फिल�म की श�र�आत �क घर से होती है, जिसमें �क मां और उसके बेटे को दिखाया जाता है। बेटा दिमागी रूप से बीमार होता है। चूंकि मां अकेले अपने लड़के और घर की जिम�मेदारी संभालती है इसलि� वह भी बेहद परेशान रहती है। उसे उस दिन अपने दोस�त की नाव पर सैर करने भी जाना होता है। वह अपने बच�चे को तैयार कर स�कूल ले जाती है। रास�ते में अपने बच�चे वह कहती भी है कि वह अब उसके साथ ग�स�से से पेश नहीं आ�गी। लेकिन इसी बीच बच�चे से बातचीत के दौरान उसकी कार का �क�सिडेंट हो जाता है। उसके बाद उनदोनों की मौत हो जाती है। फिल�म की मूल कहानी यहीं तक है। इसके बाद फिल�म की सारी कहानी हीरोइन की कल�पनाओं की उड़ान होती है। चूंकि वह अपने बच�चे को किसी भी कीमत पर बचाना चाहती है।

This was a eally great film!! The way that I would explain it is that when shes alseep on the yatch she looses her memory and thinks that all the past events were just a bad dream. Then when shes on the boat and realises the whole cycle, she tries to change the course of events thinking that the previous hers havnt tried to as well, when in fact they have (evident in the end when we see all the seaguls she previously disposed). See when shes in the car she doesnt remember being in that position before (because she lost her memmory on that yatch). If she knew the truck was comming of course she would have done things differently.Then she ends up dying in the crash and i dont think anyone else can see her besides the taxi driver who is an angel of death or seomthing like that. So he asks her if she needs a ride, perhaps to the afterlife? But he leaves the decision up to her..and she says yes take me to the larbour...because she wants to do things again to save her son. But the driver knows that she will be back so he says he'll keep the meter running (he'll keep the cycle running) and when asking if she'll be back, Jess replies 'yes'. Saying that she will return back to life, or maybe even she knows that she will return back to that exact spot...doing whatever it takes to spend time with her son and try to be a better mother, even if its only a short time.

Okay so, I think most of you guys are wrong. Personaly, i believe that at the end, the taxi driver is the angel of death (the grim reaper). Remember there mention of the myth? The god who cheated death and was doomed to repeat a task? Well. At the end, i believe she dies in the car crash, when the driver offers to "keep the meter running" and she responds with "yes, i promise to come back" she i cheating death- she doesnt return, and has lied to the reaper. Therefor, like in the myth, she repeats what she has done.

Steve

Regarding the ending, it cannot be changed. She will always have the car accident and die. When she wakes up on the beach she completely forgets about the accident that kills them, all she knows is to get back home to her son and that shes glad to be off the boat. Once she gets home and see's her self mistreating her son, she then axes herself. Once she jumps into the car she is completely unaware that they are going to die in a accident. So this is the loop that she will keep having to witness and go through. The driver is "death" and when he says he will "keep the meter running and asks her to come back" this pretty much means that shes in this sisyphean nightmare eternally (keep the meter or in other words keep the nightmare running)

A-K87

The best way to review tis film is with 4 words: 'Timescrimes On A Boat' I love Melissa George and she was great as ever in this but is clearly a rip-off of the 2007 Spanish language film, 'Timecrimes'. The repetition, the mask, the ending, it's all lifted from Nacho Vigalondo's film.

Bordeaux

Sean, that would be nice get away, and I am quite sure she very much wanted to. Unfortunately, the taxi driver is the devil himself, and killing the people on the yatch is her assignment. They are the walking deads themselves. Each time, she tries and we know she tries to outsmart the assignment but only to achieve her goal: redemption to her son.

Sean

I got the film but it's still pointless. Yes she dies and her purgatory is the events that occur as a consequence of her guilt or a punishment for her behaviour with her son. But why is she compelled to repeat like Sisyphus the mundane purgatory. She appears to have free will because she takes different actions in subsequent re-runs. But none of these actions will redeem her because none give her the ability to change how she treated her son. When the taxi driver leaves her at the dock, why not tell the crew, no thanks i'm off to the cinema today and end the horror for her and us.

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brad, the one walking around at the end of the movie isn't the ghost it's the dead body of the other her. You can tell because she's wearing the dress she was wearing at home. When she gets on the boat again she's still alive. One thing I don't get is why she's acting the same way she did at the beginning of the movie... It suggests she didn't change anything... She lost her memory of the last loop when she had the dream..? This was definitely one of my favorite horror/mystery movies and movies altogether.

To all those who rated this poorly, you must have really missed the entire point of the movie. Without trying to spoil anything in the film, the movie is not supposed to be some straight forward horror film. In fact, the entire plot is hinted in the seemingly pointless dialogue. I suggest you rewatch (or for those who have not seen it just watch) this and try to figure out what is actually the message of the movie. If you don't like to think you will not like this movie

Wow, I can't believe no one on here appears to "get it". She actually dies in the car crash with her son. The scene is real and she and her son are dead. The woman standing there unscathed is her ghost. The cab driver is either the devil, or god. or an angel who administers her punishment. There is no escape from this punishment and she is destined to relive the whole thing over and over for all eternity including seeing what a horrible mother she was to her son... similar to the story of Sysiphrus... which tha cast discusses on the boat. All the events after her death are "Supernatural" which explains why it makes little sense - like the storm and the boat and the dozens of copies of the same individual. None of it is real. Stop trying to make sense of that. It's similar to 6th sense.... once you realize she's dead then everything else falls into place. - Fantastic film.

SPOILER!!!! For those who are wondering about the ending, look clesely, everything os explained but u need to use your mind including your imagination of course!!!! The car crash id the definitive event that ends and starts the whole story: the child dies could the mother have escaped without a scrach? Look at the taxi driver... doesnt he seem to be knowing much more than he should? Her answer to him about coming back to the taxi, wasnt it like cheating? remember the Sisiphous idea. As for the memory loss, afterlife can be a bit blury... And remember that the woerst nightmare is not just the one that you can not escape from but the one that, even though you u know how terrible it is, you have no other choise but to relive it eternally... The human condition in its absolute horror of beauty: love for your child that u'd do anything to shave it, including killing yourself for mistreating it, guilt and fear of what u might turn to, inability to escape the ultimate fate, being the hero and the villain at the same time, the utter hopelessness of human existence... Awesome movie! for those who dare think about it of course...

You're all not getting it! 1) There is one big loop: the one where -the original Jess goes on the ship, -witnesses her friends get shot -throws an alter ego off the boat -sees new friends arrive -tries to save those new friends -witnesses them get stabbed -after that sally girl dies with the other sallies, she sees herself get killed by an alter ego and thrown overboard (i'll come back to this) -sees another pack of new friends arrive -kills them with a gun -gets pushed over -arrives back home -kills her alter ego at home -sees her son die in an accident -gets back on the boat 2) Second: in the end she totally remembers what happened, mourns the loss of her child and thinks to herself that getting back on the boat will give her another chance to get back to her child! She then wants to do everything over again and choses her child over her friends, thus kiling her friends so the loop goes as it should go and as it's always gone before. By letting the loop take the right course she thinks she will get back thrown overboard at the exact same time as before and she can get back to her son when it's all over! 3) She doesn't take into account that at a certain point in the loop, one of her alter ego's will kill her. As you can see, one of the alter ego's kills her with an axe and then throws her overboard (somewhere around 1h05 in the movie). 4) continuing from where I left off in point "1)" -she goes back on the boat -lets the loop continue -and at some point she stand right in front of the alter ego that tries to prevent the shooting incident -she then stabs her friends to death -gets chased by one of her alter ego's and dies near the ship's edge, being thrown overboard after being mashed up with an axe By this I'm trying to explain why all of a sudden one of the Jesses dies => which has to be part of a loop (otherwise too many Jesses would be running around on the ship, cause each time two arrive while only one Jess falls off) Trying to explain why she would go back on the ship Trying to explain who that murderess Melissa is that stabs her friends It's still got alot of flaws though, i'm under the assumption that the big loop i've discribed is part of an even bigger loop: having the melissa go on the ship, off the ship, back on the ship (and I think she stays on the ship long enough for 4 or 6 batches of friends to arrive on the ship, hiding somewhere) and then DIES. Making a total of at least 3 Jesses on the ship and possibly more.

JZStyle

well i think the ending messed up everything because: - if she's trying to save her son that means her son also "loops and revives" altough he wasn't on the boat! -also when she gets back home there's an agressive Melissa which apparently knows nothing about the boat where did melissa came from? -when she gets back on the boat she doesnt remembers nothing? instant amnesia? -assuming that if she gets on the boat and suffers from amnesia when she enters again the boat the whole world has to loop so her son can be back at home and also another copy of her can be there hum maybe she's schizoprenic and its allucinating xD cheers but i think the idea was excellent maybe they have an explanation for the ending that can fit everything...!

hawkeye

The intelligence side of the flick is overstated. The story line is extremely simple. The Bermuda Triangle creates a time warp that cycles back into itself. The trauma of losing a son and shipwreck drives a single mom into schizophrenia. The inconsistencies are numerous. Somethings are conveniently persistent while others are not. Corpses, be it birds or humans, maintain persistency. So are blood trails but not writings in blood. Neither is used up riffles and gun shells, nor hooks as weapons. The real ending would be interesting, when the ship overflows with corpses and copies of her. Since there are three in each cycle, this should happen first.

not much action same sh*t over n over .. she didnt even choose to do the logical thing ... :/ ending was really weird to .. 0/5 seriously waste of time tbh

Tenshi

all in all doesn’t make sense by the end of the movie. If she got back on the boat to bring her son back and it loops back to the beginning as is inferred, then why is she suddenly unaware of what’s going on when she’s back on the boat. Also, very obvious solutions to the loop seem to fly over her head for no reason… such as when she dons the mask and shotgun and prepares to shoot the guy on the balcony, why doesn’t she realize that simply NOT killing anyone would solve the entire issue. The entire movie plays on a good idea, but with more holes in the logic of the plot than I can point out in this short review. I’d say watch it for novelty, but for nothing more. I honestly don't know why people are calling this moving intelligent or saying that they don't understand it... the premise makes perfect sense, its all of the holes that no one seems to notice that bother me. I found myself becoming angry at how stupid she was the entire film...

Hidayat

I just watched this movie with my friends and are having a major discussion on the whole point of this movie. Firstly, this movie doesn't make sense because if you think about it, how did this all start at time = 0. who started all the killings and how did she get the idea to kill everyone in the first place. Also, the killings must have an end point, cause Sally's bodies would eventually pile up and till there's no space for a new one. Secondly, there are far easier ways to stop the loop. A suggestion would be to avoid the accident with the big ass truck. If she had avoided the accident and hence the death of Tommy, so she wouldn't have to board the boat anymore. Anyway, I would give the movie a rating of 4/5.

Don

Great movie, the ending was really hard to understand. However, for though who concern about how she can get out of the circle is that the reason she stuck on it was because they were attacked by the storm and aboared on the boat, however, if they could have sail the boat slower and and hit by the storm in a different coordinate they could have not fall in to the "triangle area" and don't have to aboard on the "Ship". Just a thought.

I absolutely loved this film! I thought the trailers were perfect so new I wanted to watch it but was expecting something like Ghost Ship and what I got was altogether miles ahead of that! If you like time-travel, LOST and Momento type mind benders you will love this. SPOILER ALERT There are a couple of times where I thought, hang on if she knew that was going to happen, why did she continue. EG she knew she defeated the masked assassin so knew she would be defeated - if you follow? Also who set the record playing? Where did the writing on the mirror disappear and surely you would remember the truck and therefore avoid it next time? END SPOILER You do feel an urge to help her get out of the cycle and I think Melissa George played a brillient part (a far cry from Angel in neighbours!!). Loved it - Temporarily satisfied my LOST hunger - Come back LOST!

I see this as an intelligent, cleverly done psychological drama with violence rather than a true horror film - if you're looking to be riveted to your seat with fright, look elsewhere. Basically it made sense to me from beginning to end, but there were a few things I wasn't quite sure of (why did she do X, knowing Y?). I think I will have to watch it a second time to judge whether it really does make perfect sense, but here's my take on it so far:- ... MAJOR SPOILER ALERT ... The Sisyphus reference is the key. IMHO it's flagged up too early. ... The kid is her world. So, even though she pretty much knows the deal, she puts herself through it all just for the sake of (1) a few moments with him (but at the cost of what happens to him? nah) or more likely (2) a chance (however slim) of breaking free of the loop. MAYBE her memory of some of the details of what she's facing isn't perfect at times during the cycle, because of the trauma she's going through. But there's definitely a reason why she says she's sorry on the jetty, so she remembers a lot at that stage. The most difficult thing is the stupid way she acts in the car journey. Surely after about twenty tries you'd get that right... the only explanation why not is distorted memory? ... The (taxi?) driver is death? ... The most chilling thing is not the pile of human corpses. It's the pile of dead gulls. ... SPOILER ENDS
