NOBODY (2021): The Things I Liked…

From the writer of John Wick (2014), Derek Kolstad; action/crime/thriller Nobody is a movie that has some notable scenes. Yet, overall… unpopular opinion warning… I didn’t find it as good/fun as John Wick. Instead, Nobody felt more like a John Wick ‘spinoff.’ Only it’s less cool, less stylish, less fun, and unfortunately a lesser story.

Even with the moments I felt stood out most, specifically the opening song, the brief but cool scene involving Bob Odenkirk’s character’s seated father, and the dialogue plus set-up during the all-important meeting at the Russian club, Nobody still had me feeling far from satisfied.

Director Ilya Naishuller’s vengeance story about a man who is forced to return to his past dangerous activities isn’t exactly new. Furthermore, the way the story is written/delivered didn’t leave me feeling emotionally connected enough to all that was happening. I’d hoped that once the fight sequences began, at least they would be so cool and fun – the way much of John Wick is. I was wrong.

Watch Nobody if you’re curious. It looks like a lot of people enjoyed it. Just don’t be surprised if you like John Wick more. I consider Keanu Reeves’s movie to be more impressive in every way that matters… to me.

NOBODY (2021): New Trailer From Bob Odenkirk, Connie Nielsen, Christopher Lloyd…

When you help a woman who’s being harassed by a group of men, one of the things that can happen is you become the target of a vengeful drug lord.

At least that’s the case for Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk) in new action/crime/drama Nobody.

Directed by Ilya Naishuller; additional key cast includes Connie Nielsen and Christopher Lloyd.

The action sequences in this trailer appear fun, cleverly shot and funny. I’m looking forward to finding out the ways in which Nobody is different from Keanu Reeves’s very popular John Wick (2014). Perhaps it’s equally similar and different. Especially considering the revenge plot and the fact that both films share a producer.

Bring on the madness and let’s get back that ‘goddam kitty cat bracelet!’

J.P. Manoux, Paul Essiembre, Humberly González, Araya Mengesha, Gage Munroe, Paisley Cadorath, Aleksey Serebryakov and RZA also star.

Nobody Release Dates: March 26th, 2021 (US), April 23rd, 2021 (UK)…
