Movie Info

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 Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon's McMafia)--and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.

  • This is not an emotionally deep film, but it does raise interesting questions about whether the life we once lived is the one we prefer.

    April 17, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Nobody is as visceral and smashing as it ludicrous and bonkers, and it is every bit the flashy and vigorously violent movie you'd expect to match its enormously high body count.

    April 11, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Pure fun, pure adrenaline.

    April 5, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Christopher Lloyd, 82, is having a moment. After playing wingman to William Shatner's late-life Romeo in Senior Moment, the Back to the Future star gets the film's biggest laughs as Mansell's Pops.

    April 2, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While Nobody can be taken as a species of parody, Odenkirk never lets on. The ability to deliver lines like "Give me the kitty-cat bracelet" with total, grim conviction: that too could be seen as heroism, of a sort.

    April 1, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • What makes this fantasy of cowboy-style self-defense so disturbing is that it isn't limited to the movies. It's the very same belief system that gets used, in real life, to justify the American obsession with gun ownership.

Audience Reviews for Nobody

  • Apr 29, 2021
    When a low-budget film comes along that simply wants to entertain its audience and ends up going above and beyond its promise, all I can do is praise it. It's rare that a film like Nobody comes out and feels similar to other movies like John Wick or Taken, while also having a completely fresh identity of its own. Honestly, I wasn't super excited for this one, given that the trailers made it look too similar to movies like the aforementioned, but I'm very glad I gave it the chance. Not only is this film possibly better than most of its kind, but I also connected with most of the characters here, and with a short 90-minute run time, that's saying a lot. Here's why I absolutely recommend checking out Nobody.  The film opens with a family man, overtired and in a looped daily routine, as two people invade his home and bring out his forgotten past. Having surpassed his rage in the past and left his previous life behind, he very quickly finds himself back in the game. The film takes its time letting you know where Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk) is in his life right now, which really made a bigger impact when you learn who he really is. Once this film gets going, it's pedals to the metal in terms of fights and cleverness. It does take its time to make you care about the characters, but if for nothing else, the attention to detail in the action is what will sell the movie for action buffs. Like many have already said about this film, Bob Odenkirk crushes it as Hutch. I never once thought of him as someone who would ever lead a film like this, but I'm happy to say that he did it extremely well. I always knew he was a very talented actor, but this felt like a new side of him as a performer. Yes, as the film progresses it begins to feel familiar, but it's all about whether or not you care about what is happening. It feels familiar, but fresh at the same time and I would happily watch a sequel. I just want to see more stories involving this character. Choreographing action was something director Ilya Naishuller knew all too well, after directing the film Hardcore Henry, so I wasn't really worried about that aspect going in. I'm just happy the film delivered that and then some. I would say that Naishuller has significantly improved as a filmmaker and I'm actually looking forward to his next project. I wasn't a big fan of Hardcore Henry (although I appreciate the effort), so I'm very surprised to say that. In the end, from the action to the solid enough story, my only big complaints were really just a collection of small nitpicks throughout the movie. Overall, this film lets you know what it's going to be and then delivers on its promise. Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention that it was very nice to see Christopher Lloyd having a blast in a movie again. Now streaming on-demand, I highly recommend checking out Nobody, unless you're someone who is squeamish when it comes to blood.

    Excessively silly at times, but otherwise consistently funny and replete with good action.

    The why of the popularity of this current trend in filmmaking would be a rich subject for social psychologist types to hypothesize about for some lighthearted fun in future, but in the meantime here we go again: yet another ex-secret agent ("license to kill, ol' boy, say what") reluctantly comes out of the drudgery of suburban retirement to, duh, kill scores of trained killers. This is the second time in films I've just seen in as many days wherein the heavies just happened to be Russian mob types - a necessary second part of the trope, supplying the heaps of expendable bodies, as Russian mobs are known to do. Maybe a inventive producer should look at having some writer flipping the script and instead do a comic turn about a Russian mobster trying to give it all up, leave all the trying to kill ex-spies behind, open a nice tourist travel agency somewhere, perhaps Greece, and finding love. Throw in a troublesome teenage daughter. Whatever, the body counts the thing in these movies and in that this one does not disappoint. As well there's the obligatory car chase/shoot-out with some vintage American muscle car to pad the time with some scenes of shooting an automatic weapon at cars behind you in busy traffic and while driving at top speed. Quite.

    If you ever wanted to see Saul Goodman crack skulls like John Wick, well you're in luck with Nobody, a perfectly enjoyable action movie that does little to separate itself from its influences. Bob Odenkirk has been on a wild ride of a career, beginning primarily as a writer and director of cult comedies and then turning into an award-nominated dramatic actor thanks to Breaking Bad and its spinoff, and now he gets his chance to try being an improbable action hero. Odenkirk plays a family man who freezes during a break-in. We think he's a push-over, an office drone, a nobody, but he's really nothing of the sort, and woe unto those who come after him for bloody vengeance. The plot is pretty thin and plays out very much like a combination of Joker and The Equalizer, even down to its final, explosive, booby trap-laden final act. Much like the John Wick series, the importance is heavily placed upon the action and stunt choreography. We're here for the spectacle. While Nobody doesn't rise to the dizzy action highs of the Wick franchise, it's an above average action movie and has fun moments of unique style thanks to director Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry). A fight scene aboard a bus is extensive and exhausting, leaving both parties gasping and bloody. Odenkirk's character isn't quite the impervious video game avatar that Keanu Reeves portrays; he's rusty and limited, but by the time that climax comes rolling, he might as well be the Terminator. It's not enough to disrupt the fun of the movie but the one area that could separate Nobody from the punchy pack just vanishes by the conclusion. The addition of Russian gangsters feels too cliche and unremarkable, as they just serve as a quick pipeline for bad guys to be abused. The addition of 83-year-old Christopher Lloyd as a sneakily formidable nursing home resident is much less cliche and much more enjoyable. If you're looking for an action movie that packs a punch without taxing your brain, Nobody hits enough of the right buttons to suffice. Nate's Grade: B
