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. If the team succeeds in their quest for the truth, each one would receive five million dollars. They find a high-tech underwater facility from the Navy, and each one of them has glimpses of alternative reality after their discovery.

Even though this is a Sci Fi Movie Channel, Television mini-series (over five hours in length), it is perhaps because of its particular media (a mini-series), this serious and well made sci fi presentation is one of the best sci fi experiences to come out in a number of years. Even with a few weaknesses, this epic sci fi movie includes some of the most creepiest but subtle sci fi scenes ever captured. The character development, the script and plot, the special effects all combine to make for a consistent, original, intense, and powerful movie going experience. The movie never over does its, over plays its hand. There are some amazing short scenes that throw the viewer off balance and the character flow of Lou Diamond Phillips that portrays one of the best dynamics over time on screen. This is an awesome television mini-series that almost qualifies as a two-part feature film. Not all of the special effects hit the top-notch quality and a few places of editing is perhaps choppy, but the overall effect is leading edge stuff. In the same league as The Lathe of Heaven (1980) which also featured Bruce Davidson, The Triangle is an amazing, sci fi experience produced by sci fi geeks. Eight out of Ten Stars.
