Lost Cause

When Brian (Tom Verica) and his wife Mary (Charlotte d'Amboise) discover she has fallen pregnant it should be a moment of happiness but unfortunately Mary is undergoing treatment for Ovarian cancer and her specialist suggests an abortion is the best way to go. In need of some space to think they decide to have a short vacation in Bermuda where Brian hires a boat. Unfortunately disaster strikes when Mary vanishes whilst on the boat and Brian finds himself with the local law suspecting not only foul play but with a large life insurance policy of Brian being behind it. In order to clear his name Brian hires Charly Simpson (Christina Haag) who believes Mary may have ended up in the Bermuda Triangle to find the triangle and take him through it.

It is a long time since I got excited by nudity in a movie and even longer since the sight of a nipple protruding through a woman's vest lifted my expectations but so uninteresting is "Lost in the Bermuda Triangle" that it was the note I made at around the 40 minute mark when we see the character of Charly in a vest top and you can see the clear bump of a protruding nipple. Beyond that I didn't make many more notes as "Lost in the Bermuda Triangle" doesn't warrant it and in truth shortly after the 40 minute mark I gave up hoping the movie would come good and just hoped for it to be over.

I suppose I could say that "Lost in the Bermuda Triangle" is trying to be clever by tying in the mythology of the Bermuda Triangle with the not so uncommon concept of foul play on a boat when someone goes missing. But it doesn't do a very good job of making this enthralling and whilst we have Mary's disappearance and Brian hiring the attractive Charly it kind of plods along failing to create anything close to atmosphere. And I could go on with a stream of negativity from continuity issues to tacky special effects to a question as to why one minute in the cold of night Charly has a sweater on and then the next she is back in the vest top.

What this all boils down to is that "Lost in the Bermuda Triangle" is to be perfectly frank a lost cause of a movie which I will tell you now spends the first half of the movie plodding along before finally anything close to decent happens.
