In the final scene the stair bulkhead on the roof of the building (Kerckhoff Hall) is at the back of the building. Gersh is standing on this bulkhead when he is shot and falls off the building. Thus he should have fallen to the back or side of the building, yet his body is shown lying on the sidewalk in front of the entrance building. See more »
A small gem with good acting and no jazzy special effects
The first thing I notice when I watch "TAG" is that the film seems to have been made on TV tape....it has that feel. Sound and lighting are basic, and it's clear from the outset that this movie was made on a shoestring budget.
It is the acting that brings this film through. Linda Hamilton studied Lauren Bacall very closely, and makes a credible run at a "To Have and Have Not" moment, and Robert Carradine hams it up as a budding ace reporter. Bruce Abbott is darkly psychotic as the bad guy. Hard to believe that Linda married this guy!
Worth a look at least once, if you can find it.
