Fantastic movie
Verified purchase
NO SPOILERS
I viewed the early hype of this movie (and the connections with the John Wick films) with some skepticism. I waited for it to die down a bit before watching and I have to say I wasn't disappointed at all. Bob Odenkirk was fantastic as were Christopher Lloyd and Connie Nielsen.
It was an entertaining (if somewhat "brains off") slab of entertainment, and entertainment it is with some genuinely funny moments as well as extremely well crafted action scenes. There was no preaching from the usual Hollyweird hypocrites and you won't come away feeling like you've been smashed over the head with a "message bat" for 90+ minutes. A rarity these days.
Watch through to the mid-credit scene - Christopher Lloyd really looks like he had fun making this film.

I want my money back!

Awful. If you're expecting Breaking Bad or Better call Saul you're in for a big disappoinment. It's utter GARBAGE. Full of "one man takes on the world" cliches. The long suffering wife that stands by her hero hardman. Lots of shooting, gangsters who can't shoot straight and the star shoots them all in style. Cringeworthy one liners, special forces types coming out of retirement for "just one last job". One action hero taking on the Russian mob and making them all look silly. On a par with The Kingsman. If you liked the Kigsman you won't be able to read this because you're not old enough yet. What a waste of £15 and 1.5 hours of my life. I could have better spent my time collecting litter outside the local chippy or reading the terms and conditions of my phone contract. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

Dismal

Another rotten film: what is happening to the film industry I wonder? I do have a theory, incidentally: it's that films cost so much to make nowadays that in order to recoup the money they have to secure massive global syndication deals which means lots of places that do not have English as a first language, which means as little dialogue (and thus any real plotting or characterisation either) as possible and its substitution with familiar general stereotypes (revenge violence, mafia - Russian or Italian or Irish, makes no difference to these films - and lots of further violence and 'action' sequences that do not need words.
Anyhow, back to this stinker for a moment, as I already wasted enough time watching it: do not be fooled by the fact that the excellent Bob Odenkirk is in it, he can't save it, that's how bad it is.
So, basically, a couple of people break into Odenkirk's house and threaten his family ('Death Wish'), whereupon Odenkirk does nothing despite it transpiring that he's a retired FBI agent ('Taken' but CIA changed to FBI), then he decides to redeem himself and beats the hell out of various rogues ('Death Wish' again, pick any number, they're all the same), and then it transpires that one of the people he beat up is the son of a psychotic Russian mafia boss ('oh I really can't be bothered' - choose any one of the films with psychotic Russian mafia baddies in it).
It was so bad that, despite having paid £11 for it: 1. I literally couldn't bear to sit through any more nonsense and 2. Despite this amount having bought me the film, I am deleting it from from my Purchase List of films as I will only ever watch it again if someone puts a gun to the head of my son and says 'watch 'Nobody' again or the kid gets it' (which is the sort of line this film would have in it), and even then I'd have to think about it.

Great first half.
Verified purchase
Bob Odenkirk is fantastic as always. The opening act is brilliant, the second one less so and the concluding chapter is beyond ridiculous. 'Nobody' never fails to entertain though.

It's probably inappropriate to say this but I wonder whether Bob's recent heart emergency was prompted by seeing how much Amazon UK are charging for it. Sixteen quid! I paid it because I was drunk, reckless and fully aware that the cops are watching me.

Aside from all that, I want to wish Bob a swift recovery and urge his fans not to pay for this film. It will be on TV soon and I don't think any of our favourite actors will starve because we sat on a portion of our daily wages.

It's an alright movie but far from essential.

It's Just a Bit of Fun
Verified purchase
Obviously this film has to be compared to the John Wick franchise because it's basically the same with a few small changes.

However, I preferred this film for the simple reason it had a bit more pathos and had a kind of wry humour that John Wick doesn't have. The violence is still cartoon enough to move beyond grotesque into parody where it's hard to be offended.

Overall a fun movie that's not going to in any way challenge your brain - apart from maybe avoiding thinking about some of the more OTT bits - and I'm fine with that.

Bob Odenkirk is "on the money" in a very different role!
Verified purchase
I firstly admit I think "Better Call Saul" is one of the best TV series I have seen (Acting, writing and production values) so I was keen to see how lead actor Bob Odenkirk would be in an all action role.

I must also admit to not liking any of the John Wick movies (too much like a shooter computer game for my tastes) but their writer ex-stuntman Derek Kolstad has been able to change his style enough in writing this script while keeping the action flowing to make a more memorable film. This is helped by Russian director Ilya Naishuller with his choice of the Russian villain, the highly regarded Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov, and Russian actors living in North America, making it feel very differently.

The greater emphasis given on Odenkirk's character (current family and his prior life) plus a character who reawakens to enjoying what he does best, trumps the standard trope of an operative being forced unwillingly back into action of many such action films. The Extras with the disc show how hard Ondekirk physically trained and the preparation of the fight scenes shows how much he invested in the role. Special mention also to Christopher Lloyd (of "Back to the Future" fame) as Odenkirk's father who is a star turn! The results are very visible in the finished film which has not surprisingly gone on to great commercial success worldwide!

The ending leaves it open for a sequel but the sad news that Odenkirk suffered minor heart problems subsequently during the shooting of the final season of "Better Call Saul" might mean he might not be able to do.

Nobody is killing me...
Verified purchase
Hutch Mansell (Better Call Saul Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk) is a nobody. Going through the motions of his mundane life. Following the same routine, day after day, after day...He loves his family but fails to physically defend them during a burglary. Their disappointment triggers a return to the man he used to be.

He tracks down those responsible. And then like the tattoo on his wrist, fate deals him an unlucky hand. In the wrong place at the right time he attacks a group of thuggish russian gangsters. He dispatches them in violent gory fashion not realising one of them is a somebody...

The result is a chain reaction of increasing death and destruction as the russian gangster boss (a gloriously over the top Aleksey Serebryakov) does what all evil russian gangsters do and throws his entire organisation at one man and his family.

You can probably guess where it goes from there. If you're thinking of a mash up of Taken, The Equaliser, and John Wick, then we're on the same page. Add in a great supporting role from a deadpan Christopher Lloyd as Hutch' equally lethal dad. There's even a cute kitten...

The result is a not too long, ultrviolent, action
thriller, that (if you suspend all belief) is actually pretty entertaining. Aided by a great soundtrack, and made on a shoestring budget (for these days) of sixteen million, this had a decent return, and could well spawn a sequel or two.

Totally bonkers - but thoroughly entertaining!

Like many, I was drawn to this movie because of the main actor, Bob Odenkirk, who was a revelation in Breaking Bad (the BEST TV series - EVER). Of course, he was so brilliant in the role of Saul Goodman, that an off-shoot series was written, Better Call Saul, which gave Mr Odenkirk the opportunity to show us what a super actor he is, and I’ve so far devoured each and every one of those excellent BCS episodes.

Anyway, I have to mention that I had no preconceptions of Nobody, I’d only seen a brief trailer, and thought to myself ‘I want to watch that!.’ In my opinion, this is a movie that’s best approached with little knowledge of its storyline etc - just pop the DVD into your player, switch off the lights, sit back with some munchies and a drink - and ENJOY! This was written by Derek Kolstad, who created the John Wick franchise - so that fact alone, kinda tells you to expect plenty of crash, bang and wallop! This really is one of those films that’s difficult to review without giving away spoilers, and I don’t want to do that, so all I’ll say is don’t take it too seriously. Despite the violence and mayhem caused throughout, this is very much a tongue-in-cheek, full-throttle action thriller - treat it as such, and you should have a good time, I certainly did!
PS It was great to see the wonderful Christopher Lloyd again, who plays Hutch’s dad.
