Bob Odenkirk stars as Hutch, a 'Nobody' whose boring life becomes filled with excitement and danger after he crosses paths with some notorious Russian gangsters. In his quest to defend his family from numerous gunmen, he reverts back to his old self; a merciless killer with the ability to beat the sh*t out of people.
This movie is an unconventional look at a seemingly conventional man whose unconventional way of doing things leads to an unpredictably bizarre outcome.
The talented Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) is Hutch, a man who is far more than his boring demeanor suggests. To his family, he is mediocrity personified, and to his teenage son, in particular, he is a coward who amounts to nothing.
Everything in Hutch's life points to him being an underachiever and a big-time loser, that is until his family is threatened by some Russian mobsters. Then Mr. Nobody becomes an unstoppable force of nature!
The fight scenes will keep you at the edge of your seat because you never know what will happen next. The protagonist is the kind of dude who will face an army of gunmen empty-handed, beat the crap out of them, get bloodied in the process, and walk away from the scene calmly.
Hutch is not the kind of guy anyone would want to tangle with. There is no method to his madness, he just keeps throwing kicks and punches, using anything in sight as a weapon.
I confess that I made the mistake of underestimating the film such that I didn't bother watching the trailer. What made me change my mind was when those who saw it refused to stop talking about it. I'm so glad I watched it cos it was a thrilling encounter from start to finish!
As the eponymous character, Odenkirk is phenomenally brilliant! He plays Hutch with so much gusto and perfection that the viewer becomes lost in the character.
The fight scenes, gunplay and gore add to the overall appeal of a movie that doesn't need your approval in any way. It is awesome in every ramification.
More than just a guy who kicks some major ass, Hutch has a code and abides by that code. He is not a mindless killing machine, just a killing machine with a mind.
The final showdown is definitely the highlight of the film (as it should be). While the protagonist is battling the baddies, he gets help from two unexpected sources; dudes so crazy that they could all be the trio of wacky lunatics!
Nobody is, in my opinion, one of the best action movies 2021 has produced so far. I look forward to a sequel and can't wait to see Odenkirk blow my mind again!
