An amateur production with some awful acting

A good idea doesn't necessarily make a good film and 'Excursion' is proof of that. Reading the synopsis, this sounded like an interesting film. But less than 20 minutes in and I was cringing at just how bad it was. It is evident almost immediately that this is a low budget production trying too hard to be something that it's not. The storyline is original and has potential but the poor quality of the film makes it difficult to buy into and I quickly lost interest. The acting is atrocious and the dialogue sounds like it was written by a ten year old. It honestly reminded me of some kind of amateur college production that was written and shot in a day. The only positive I can think of is the cinematography and camera work, which was the only convincing aspect of the film. Everything else about 'Excursion' felt completely amateurish.

Drives you 'loopy'

On the one hand, Excursion is highly original, but on the other, the acting and scripting of this film are mediocre. It's shot in an apartment in Shad Thames, and it has the unfortunate feel of a local drama group deciding to act out a novel script in someone's flat and basement. (Watch Hoshii Mamoru 'University of Laughs', if you want to see a master class in how a single setting film can work brilliantly, by the way). The acting settles down a bit half way through, but the former is needlessly snail paced even for the context. Some fans laud the interesting twist on time-travel and this is indeed a refreshing take that suitably steers clear of cheap and needless special effects. However, trying to follow the threads of the timeline and paradoxes will drive you 'loopy' and despite feeding into a clever catastrophic twist, it struggles to really make any clear sense of the tangled ball of time and events, unless as one of the protagonists says, that you pull on a thread and some of the knots sort themselves out. For me though, pulling on the threads just seems to tighten the knots of confusion.

Good idea, poor acting

The take on time travel is interesting, if a little convoluted, but the film is let down by the amateur acting and some poorly written dialogue (the actors' timing on delivering their lines gives it a 'student film' feel). That being said, there is potential in the script and production values which makes me think that the filmmakers, with access to better actors, are capable of producing higher quality material.
