Nobody is the kind of film that people will underestimate and be proven wrong.
Nobody is a film about a “regular guy” who is in a bit of a rut when his house gets robbed. While at gunpoint, he gives in to their demands rather than fight and is left feeling conflicted as to whether or not he handled it the right way. Especially after the way his son and wife have their say. It’s not until his daughter’s bracelet goes missing that he springs into action. That decision sets off a chain of events that are filled with suspense, action, and intrigue.
The fight scenes are intense and they are so well done (and believable) which was refreshing and kept us engaged. Given all that is going on in the film, you won’t be disappointed by the level of action throughout, once you get through the first 20 minutes or so of the film (which really dragged). Despite its slow start, once the action kicks in, it goes full speed ahead until the end.
I loved Christopher Lloyd’s character (he plays David, Hutch’s dad). He doesn’t say much but he left a major impression. What I didn’t love was that there are a few questions are left unanswered if you care about the story line at all but if you are just there for the action, you won’t even notice.
Honestly, the premise of this film (something valuable being taken from you and it spiraling out of control) reminded me of the John Wick films…but this film was milder than those films. Nobody is John Wick meets Equalizer. Because Hutch appears to be your average Joe, you are reminded that you should never judge a book by its cover.
Nobody is worth the watch! Be advised that there are a ton of bad words and extreme violence but I guess that’s part of its charm.
Nobody is now in theaters!
More about Nobody
Sometimes the man you don’t notice is the most dangerous of all. Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska) stars as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on the chin and never pushing back. A nobody.
When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son, Blake (Gage Munroe, The Shack), is disappointed in him and his wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder Woman), seems to pull only further away.
The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch’s long-simmering rage, triggering dormant instincts and propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and lethal skills. In a barrage of fists, gunfire, and squealing tires, Hutch must save his family from a dangerous adversary (famed Russian actor Alexey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia)—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.
