IT’S BAD ENOUGH that the Tomatometer is so wildly off for many bigger films, now I’ve found out that I need to be careful with tiny ones. Triangle was the sort of movie I was in the mood for, and with Apple Movies was telling me it had an 82% score, I went ahead and sprung for it.
Only afterwards did I find out no real consensus existed, and that only 2 “Top Critics” had reviewed it. That’s how small it was. Triangle begins with a rather fake setup and some blatantly bad acting, but then gets better as the story sets in. But you can do a lot better in the horror/thriller genre, and the (SPOILER ALERT!) doppelgängler genre — try instead Mulholland Dr., the generally underrated Secret Window, or Moon. I like the poster though.
Before jumping on those Tomato scores, make sure some critics you respect (like me) have given the thumb’s up. A few positives yield a 4/10.
