2018 (UK), Comedy, 1h 45m
Starring: Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Isla Fisher & Hannibal Buress
One month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running for a no-holds-barred game of tag — risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take one another down. This time, the game coincides with the wedding of the only undefeated player. What should be an easy target soon becomes an all-out war as he knows they’re coming to get him.
Tag is based on an unbelievable true story, and winds up being an funny, crazy, and sweet but yet disposable comedy.
For all it’s repetitiveness and frantic silliness – the impurity of its absurdity – Tag ends up being good fun, with an unexpectedly sweet spirit.
The acting was quite campy and over the top, which was weird to see from the likes of Jeremy Renner, but what you expect from actors like Ed Helms – speaking of whom has definitely got his groove back after the abysmal Father Figures earlier this year.
Regardless of all it’s flaws, Tag is an okay movie to have on in the background and chuckle along to with friends.
