London, present time: Tom wakes up in the middle of the night to see his twenty year old self, Tomas, pointing a gun at his face. Tomas just traveled through time from 1980's USSR to see how Socialism is prospering. As a dedicated party member and future soldier, has been chosen specifically by the Socialist government for this vital experiment. Tom laughs in his face and shows him the events of last twenty years. It becomes very clear to Tomas that there has been a huge mistake. He has to do all he can, to save Socialism from its fate, at any cost.
There are no digital effects in the film used even though it is considered to be a Sci-Fi film. Grof likes to avoid digital effects if possible, but he likes to use them if necessary. See more »
When Tom and Tomas are first standing face to face, you can see the young Tomas is 2-3 inches taller than Tom, possibly more with old Tom's bushy hair making him look taller. See more »
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.
