Nobody: A Random Review By EJBJ
Nobody is a 2021 American action thriller comedy film directed by Ilya Naishuller and written by Derek Kolstad. The film stars Bob Odenkirk, Connie Nielsen, RZA, Christopher Lloyd, and Aleksey Serebryakov, and follows a mild-mannered family man who, after his house is robbed, returns to his dangerous former life, making him the target of a vengeful drug lord. Odenkirk and David Leitch are among the film’s producers.
Universal Pictures released Nobody theatrically in the United States on March 26, 2021, and in the United Kingdom on June 9, 2021. The film has grossed $57 million worldwide and received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the action and Odenkirk’s performance.
This movie was an action-packed thrill ride. It was so unexpected but also fun to see Bob Odenkirk as an action star. From what I understand the movie was pitched as John Wick as Bob Odenkirk and they absolutely delivered on this premise. Odenkirk really did do an amazing job selling the role. He was believable as a deadly assassin posing as a mild-mannered family man. I really loved him in Breaking Bad as Saul Goodman. His comic timing and ability to transition to dramatic scenes and moments is top tier in my opinion. Nobody begins and ends with his performance as Hutch Mansell. My only complaint with the film is that it didn’t include more of Hutch’s backstory with his brother and father played by RZA and Christopher Lloyd respectively. I give this movie a 9/10 or (4.5 out of 5 stars). Well Alright!
