Consensus: Semi-comic-action thriller Triangle teams three leading Hong Kong directors together with confusing results. For asian cinema aficionados only.

Little of it however, is genuinely striking enough to suggest a welcome reception beyond the already converted.

The beauty of the final showdown is that it's a form in which anything could happen. It's an emotional wilderness, a sort of invented environment that brings To closer to André Téchiné than either of his two co-directors here.

London Evening Standard

The film is made confusing not only by the twisting plot but by the varied styles of the three cult directors.

Derek Elley

A seriocomic crimer by Tsui Hark, Ringo Lam and Johnnie To that's a diverting, sometimes head-scratching experiment that will mostly chime with Asian movie buffs rather than satisfy general auds as a single, homogenous pic.

Hollywood Reporter

The cinematic equivalent of an inedible mess where ingredients war with one another and no one has paid any attention to the poor fellow who must consume the meal.

Anton Bitel

Rob Daniel
Sky Cinema

But there is an inescapable air of disappointment that three brilliant directors have handed in a movie that barely scratches the potential of the experiment.

I liked the idea, but the actual movie is rather unmemorable (perhaps I would have been able to write a fuller review if I had hustled and gotten this done… More

Pretty interesting; very intriguing idea by the 3 directors to film this movie the way that they did- 3 directors directing a third of a film, one after… More
