From time to time Sci-Fi gets it good, 3 June 2006
Author: siderite from Romania

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.
