very inaccurate and sensationalized
8 October 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie as a kid, so naturally I was taken in by it. The thing is that its a good time filler, but its almost completely inaccurate. There was a book I read a long time ago called The Bermuda Triangle Mystery Solved by a man named Larry Kusche who had done extensive research on all of the disappearances and had come up with startling facts. More then a few of the disappearances never happened, they happened away from the Bermuda Triangle, or they were perfectly explainable. They did an investigation once and compared the number of disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle to the number of disappearances in other areas of the ocean that are the same size, they actually said that the Bermuda Triangle is one of the safest areas to travel through! This film claims that no debris was ever found in all the "hundreds" of disappearances in the triangle, Kusche pointed out that there was debris found after some of the disappearances. This film devotes a lot of time to the disappearance of Flight 19. The facts are this, these pilots were not experienced, they were all student pilots except for their flight leader Lieutenant Charles Taylor and he was new to the area. They found out that Taylor's compasses malfunctioned and he thought they were way off course and instead of flying towards their base they were actually going away from their base. The weather got very bad and in this bad weather, in rough weas in the dead of night, the planes ran out of fuel....well you get the idea. There have been a number of Avenger bombers found in the ocean so you cant say conclusively the wreckage of Flight 19 has never been found. Also there was a big PBY that disappeared searching for Flight 19. A ship saw a huge explosion in the air where this PBY was flying and they said later on that some fool was sneaking a cigarette and...well you get the idea. This film plays so fast and loose with the facts that its almost laughable.
