Really, I can’t get it how come there’s “an” while there clearly should be “the”?!
Wiki says: “A definite article indicates that its noun is a particular one (or ones) identifiable to the listener. It may be the same thing that the speaker has already mentioned, or it may be something uniquely specified.”
It’s evidently that the speaker knows about the movie & has already received certain amount of strong impression about it. So, shall it be ‘the’ after all???
Or do I miss something?
May be an indefinite article here means: This is one of the exciting movies I had seen in my life?

You’ve come close to the explanation with your final line, Gheon.
It is one of many exciting movies, so you need to use ‘an’.
If you use ‘the’ then you are indicating that this is the only exciting movie in existence.

“That is an interesting book.”
“That is the book I found most interesting.”
