The Outtakes Thoughts;
Nobody is an action thriller film, about an auditor who goes after the Russian mob after they decide to put a hit on him and his family. The movie is a nonstop thrill ride filled with violence, while the plot is a basic generic story; Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk) is a regular family man who is getting bored with his life, living day by day with his family and a 9 to 5.
This film has been widely compared to the John Wick franchise and it’s easy to understand why. It has the same bone crunchingly visceral action sequences involving multiple casualties, the same professional killer reluctantly coming out of retirement plotline and mainly takes place in the same style of urban, industrial, neon landscapes.
The difference, however, is in the choice of the lead actor, Bob Odenkirk who is an unlikely choice for this type of role, but he plays the action hero very effectively and adds some interesting layers to his character.
“Everyone dies, some sooner than others.” The fight scenes are thrilling, bloody, gruesome, and they never hold back. The action works amazingly with the setting they take place in, and work around their environment beautifully and the stunts are choreographed gorgeously. Bob Odenkirk even does his own stunts in the film.
It has an amazing soundtrack that helps play into scenes.
Other actors worth mentioning are Christopher Lloyd and the Rza. Both actors seem to be experts and mixing action and comedy. They were so much fun to watch. The movie was an overall blast that knows what it is and doesn’t try to be anything it isn’t.
