Yeah the comparisons to Time Crimes were startling - not only the time loop and the multiple characters thing, but even down to the events of the movie - Melissa getting dressed up in the mask and overalls was almost indentical to the scene where Hector wraps his head in bandages and puts on the coat in TC.
The difference was that Time Crimes kept it's concept simple, to it never got itself wrapped up in knots and was enjoyable to watch, Triangle, on the other hand, just got completely lost in itself and became almost impossible to fathom - during the Q&A I even got the impression that the director and Melissa weren't entirely sure what was going on the film themselves.
Also Time Crimes gaves us a reason why the time loop was occurred (the time machine Hector had been tricked into), but in Triangle, no real reason was giving as why the time loop was going on.
As an opening film, this was dissappointing - almost identical to a film we'd seen a year ago, only much worse. Certainly compared with the opening films of the last 2 years, Black Sheep and Eden Lake, this was a big let down. I think Dead Snow or House Of The Devil would have made far better openers.
