Thus, you are left staring at Renner's arms. Here are some things you might notice:
• Renner spends a lot of the movie with his hands clasped behind his back in a kind of power stance. This is played off as a signal that his character is poised under pressure, but you know better. It's because he broke his damn arms.
• What about all those shots of Renner in close-up, taunting the other men on video screens of various sizes? Seems like a pretty convenient way to avoid showing the fact that his arms are relatively immobile.
• The same can be said for when he's stationed behind a bar with other people carefully positioned to block everything but his head.
• Also you might want to pay especially close attention to the very obvious presence of a stunt double in one action sequence where Helms' Hoagie -- yes, his character has the name of a sandwich -- tries to ambush his target in a mall and Jerry attacks back with by wildly swinging a handbag around.
According to statements from Renner and director Jeff Tomsic, CGI was only minimally employed, so Hamm's talk show anecdote perhaps overstated how Grand Moff Tarkin this whole thing was going to get. And, to be fair, the arms-breaking chair stunt that led to this is not very noticeable. Still, anything to do with Jeremy Renner's arms is a more compelling diversion than the rest of Tag.
