While chasing a whaler, the Greenpeace boat sinks with the vessel, pulled by a mysterious force underwater and only Meeno Paloma survives. Meanwhile, after the disappearance of six ships in the Bermuda Triangle in one year, the millionaire owner of the Mineral Shipping Lines Eric Benerall hires the skeptical journalist of The Observer Howard Thomas; the scientist Bruce Geller; the offshore engineer Emily Patterson and the psychic Stan Lathem to investigate the reasons for the phenomenon in the area.

In part 2 (at about an hour into it), the character Meeno (Lou Diamond Phillips) picks up a newspaper and reads one of Howard Thomas's articles. The text of the article is taken directly from a fact sheet prepared by the US Navy and Coast Guard. See more »

Sci-fi channel is known for incredibly bad movies with occasional successes. This one is a keeper. A miniseries about the Bermuda Triangle that is done as a true story should be done: character development, cause and effect, a proper conclusion. I understand from other people here that seeing the series as a ... well... series, can taint the viewing pleasure. I took the liberty of watching it as a film, from start to end, and I was pleasantly surprised. The entire thing is about 3 parts of almost 90 minutes.
Actors. Lou Diamond Philips outdid himself, I think. Even in a secondary role, he had a difficult role, with a vast range of emotions. He played it well. Catherine Bell is cute as a whistle :) while Eric Stoltz does well as the lead.
All in all it is a film worth seeing, keeps you on your toes and, while some of the ideas are absurd and not everything is within the realm of logic, it is only a movie and should be taken as such. The effects are decent, without being too flashy, the music and atmosphere are also appropriate.
