Can you see the header image up top? The one with the man sitting on a couch? If so, then you've already pretty much watched this entire title. Up until the last minute, this is it, mixed in with footage of woman in various states of undress being sexy for the camera and like 2 or 3 interviews through a webcam. But mostly the guy, watching porn on his couch. Same shot. Same expression with slight degrees of variation. Not really any dialog until the end, and that comes in the forms of the webcam videos and this man signing up for a dating site. That's it for over an hour and a half.
To make matters worse the footage isn't even that good. It looks like you see it above, blurry, devoid of anything interesting and I doubt a tripod was even used. If so, maybe one of those 3 legged spider things you can purchase at any dollar store. Or maybe the camera was propped up on a book or something on the table. I'm not sure where the porn videos came from, but my guess is the internet. Since a proper tripod wasn't even used, I doubt the producers could afford to pay models to pose for the camera. And, they're not all that clear either. A copy of a copy of a copy it looks like.
To be fair, Philip Brocklehurst has tried to make a statement. A statement about the boredom and jaded way we've all come to see sexuality and woman. Excitement is attempting to show us that even porn featuring a beautiful woman has become boring and obsolete, because of the internet mainly. The point came across in about 5 minutes. After that, this was a hard title to watch. I kept hoping for something new to happen. It didn't, save a brief reprieve during the ending sequences. I don't like writing negative reviews but this title angered me because it was 100% overkill. Within 25 minutes I had to take a walk, and again at just under the 40 minute mark, right before something actually really happened. An interview style piece! Wow! Oh wait, it's over and we're back to the norm. I can't even think of anything that would improve this title, except to say to start over. It literally feels like it was a joke, and that no actual effort was put in.
I actually wish I could go under a 1 star review because Excitement really tried my patience. Had this been 10 minutes, or even 15 I could have handled it. It would have made its point and been done. But over 90 minutes? Of the same and the same and the same? Excitement is quite literally the opposite of what the title describes. Don't believe me? Just look at the giant header pictured above. That's the film. I can find no real redeeming qualities here.
