    people are taking this too seriously
    The background of Hutch is too vague and the reviews seem to be trying to see this as a serious action flick. I can tell you, Odenkirk has not been in anything serious and he hasn't started here, either. If a more serious bad azz were in the lead, I'm still not sure how it could be taken seriously. This guy is an elite military who retired into the FBI as a desk jockey so he could settle down and have a family. But he's missing being in control and getting the sickness out of society. So he goes ballistic and ends up maiming the son of a huge Russian mob leader. His elderly father, played by the comedic actor Lloyd, sets up traps that would have taken elite military days to prepare within a few hours. That right there is comedy.

    I could have done without seeing this film but it was entertaining although gory (not extreme imo). I like Odenkirk and this film seemed a good vehicle for him. But please go in knowing it's not meant to be taken seriously.

    Gripping and violent story with full of intrigue, unstopped action, crossfire and breathtaking fights.
    It's an action-packed film with an interesting mingle of suspense, gun-play, bloody combats and various ironical and hilarious moments. The starring of "Better Call Saul" plays Hutch Mansell, a man who leads a peaceful and gray life, to the point of burning when his family home is attacked by thieves, he tries to avoid any type of confrontation. However, when his family, neighbors, and friends begin to blame him for his passivity, something explodes inside him,... something very, very violent. As 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. Two burglars coincidentally, leads him into a bloody war with a Russian crime boss, a dangerous adversary (famed Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon's McMafia)-and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again . 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. Never underestimate a nobody !. Sometimes the man you would never notice is the dangerous one of them all !.

    Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) takes on the role of a dangerous nobody in this violent and fun action film written by Derek Kolstad, author of the John Wick saga with whom it shares certain similarities. If in ¨John Wick¨ it is the murder of his dog that triggers a whole spiral of violence, in "Nobody" it is the assault on Odenkirk character's house. This is a thrilling and nail-biting picture with suspenseful events , family life, kinetic energy, violent combats, very high body-count and struggles in a comic-book style. There are a barrage of fists, gunfire and squealing tires, in order to get save his family.

    Stars Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska) gives a very good acting as a docile family man slowly reveals his true character after his house gets burgled by two petty thieves. Bob Odenkirk does almost all of his own stunts and the struggle scenes use long cuts to show that he is making the moves and not a stunt double. Completing the cast there're other good actors giving decent interpretations, such as: Alexey Serebryakov, Connie Nielsen, Michael Ironside, Colin Salmon, Billy MacLellan, RZA and special mention for Christopher Lloyd as the elderly grandfather who uses his peculiar means to take down enemies.

    It packs colorful, though dark cinematography by cameraman David Buckley, with several scenes shot at night. As well as pulsing throbbing musical score by Pawel Pogorzelski. The motion picture was well directed by Ilya Naishuller, known for directing videoclips and movies as Hardcore Henry (2015), Biting Elbows: The Stampede (2011) Danila Poperechniy: Fun/life (2023) and Nobody (2021). Rating: 7/10. Essential and indispensable seeing for thriller lovers.

    Wasn't expecting to LOVE it! A new side of Saul!
    I saw this movie has an IMDb rating of 7.4 and I love Bob Odenkirk from Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad so I figured I would likely enjoy this. But I wasn't expecting to enjoy it SO much from start to finish!

    It has a basic plot that we have seen before and maybe 0.4% of the plot was silly but it doesn't follow all the cliche recipe as usual. This movie didn't take itself too seriously. It builds suspense effectively and has a lot of violence but never loses its freshness and sense of fun. A hyper-violent "feel good" movie! You don't run into that every day.

    True to the genre, it doesn't do a lot of multidimensional development of all the characters but Odenkirk is extremely likeable in general and engaging throughout. And the secondary cast members play their roles well.

    The time just flew by. I very much hope there is a sequel. And this made me realize that I'd like to see Odenkirk in a wide variety of roles.

    The WOW Factor!
    We've certainly seen our share of vengeance movies. In fact, the past decade we've been bombarded by vengeance/revenge movies. Some are excellent, some are bad, and then there are some I simply can't stand - like the 'John Wick' sequels. 'Nobody' falls in the "excellent" category.

    Bob Odenkirk delivers a fantastic performance as Hutch Mansell, or the titular 'Nobody'. Hutch is married with two kids. He lives a monotonous life. His family view him as a bit of a loser, which intensifies when he lets burglars go one night. His family and colleagues now see him as a failure. But there's much more to Hutch than meets the eye...

    The character is well set-up, and I rooted for him from the very beginning. Hutch decides to find out who the burglars were. When a group of drunken guys harass a young girl on a bus, he attacks them. This scene is rather brutal, but exceptionally well done. Man, the film's fight scenes are wild!!

    It is later revealed one of the guys on the bus was the younger brother of ruthless Russian mob boss Yulian. Yulian now wants to find his brother's attacker, which leads him to Hutch. 'Nobody' hit me with surprise upon surprise, and it was bloody marvellous! The film features good photography, a good soundtrack and a great script. It was unpredictable with none of the usual clichés. I also didn't expect the film to also have such deep emotion.

    I enjoyed the fact Hutch was portrayed as an ordinary guy and not a superhero. Poor Hutch really got hurt! He was in pain, he was in agony, and he was bleeding all over the place. He fell down, but got up again. I really liked this character. And what a climax!! Hell, this film was fu*king awesome!!

    Perfect for what it is
    Nobody is really good. It doesn't have deep themes and won't make you think, but it is a perfect action movie. It's easy to see the inspiration from movies like Taken and John Wick, but Nobody has enough of its own style to make it unique. The action is gritty and brutal, the cinematography is surprisingly great, the acting is good, and the filmmakers made the most of their relatively low budget. I don't really have any problems with this movie, I enjoyed myself from start to finish. I highly recommend this if you like action movies, especially the John Wick movies and Taken. This seriously might be my favorite movie of 2021.

    It's a 16mil us production shot in Canada.
    It grossed 56 mil us for 16 mil production value in Canada on a 30c dollar. Pretty successfully for this day and age. Regardless of all the comments of the nitpicker couch surfing script and continuity editors out there. Bobs imagination here of an idea based on a real life experience with his family and brought to life for somewhat of a self healing experience is an enjoyable and entertains experience. Enjoyable to see a wonderful comedic writer expand and turn a page. He casts a wide net in his acting roles and is a joy to watch here in this role. I'm sure we will all love to see him perform such great content as in Mr Show.
