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.

THE TRIANGLE is a 3-part miniseries, and reveals the tropical pitfalls of many miniseries: too much talk, too much padding, too little action, bad music, etc. What saves it from complete oblivion is the cast, which includes topflight names like Bruce Davison, Lou Phillips, Eric Stoltz (who practically steals this movie) and Sam Neill. A team of diverse experts is sent to the Berumda Triangle to investigate the disappearance of several ships, only to run afoul of the Navy's notorious Philadelphia Experiment. They then find themselves lost in a series of time and dimensional shifts. If anyone had half a brain, they;'d take this overly long drama and edit it into a 90-minute feature, the way the makers of the original SALEM'S LOT did. I love most of the actors here, but the thing goes on way too long and my interest eventually petered out -- well, except whenever Catherine Bell was on-screen. She can be fully clothed, with her hair tied back and wearing little or no makeup and still be skiers than most actresses dolled up and stark naked -- well, except for Virginia Madsen, but she's not in this movie.
