After a long year of slow releases and movies that never would have made screen time – it seems that the new year and movie season is kicking off with movies that will get you excited to get back into the theater. With minimal advertising compared to other movies, one of such release this week is Nobody. While the poster doesn’t give viewers much to go on, the trailer is just enticing enough to get you to want to check out the film – and we’re glad we did.
Nobody is an action movie, unlike others. The story almost seems to be a weird mix of John Wick meeting suburbia and a little bit of Rambo Last Blood mixed into it. A former agent who went in to finish the job and take out the bad guys, turned suburban dad that everyone underestimates – including his own family. But much like in Taken, when his family is under attack, the underlying rage and skills come boiling to the surface.
With fun gun fights, places prepped and set up for a final battle and some fight scenes that will have you laughing and cheering – Nobody is a fun time that you will want to again. It seems to break the chain of bad releases that we had last year. And where some movies failed in the last couple years (like Rambo Last Blood’s final rage room style scene), Nobody executed the final battle well and with some laughs thrown it.
Nobody is entertaining, rage filled, and a not so gentle reminder that the quiet guy down the street may not be who you thought he was. It perfectly brings together the fast paced battles of the genre and brings it down to the every man status – making it more relatable to the viewers and maybe even more enjoyable.
Nobody will be in theaters where they are open on March 26th.

Sometimes the man you don’t notice is the most dangerous of all.
Emmy winnerBob 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 Alexey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia)—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.
Nobody is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry), from a script by Derek Kolstad, the narrative architect of the John Wick franchise, and co-stars legendary Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd as Hutch’s father and multi-hyphenate musician-actor RZA as Hutch’s brother, whose own hidden talents aid Hutch in his quest for vengeance.
