CHECK : Person (2021)

Movie reviews

When I saw the trailer for Nobody, I thought he would look like John Wick if his wife hadn’t died. An ex murderer pretending to be a normal guy, getting involved in life and all. I’m also not very familiar with Connie Nielsen or Bob Odenkirk. I’ve only seen the former in Wonder Woman and heard the latter in Incredible 2 and Unsolved. No one’s supporters were terrible. But if the theater had a choice, I wouldn’t do it. Let’s check out this action thriller and see how it does.

Nobody follows Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk), a suburban husband and father with a rather dull life. His mornings, workdays, and evenings run predictably day after day, until his house is broken into. Although he has the advantage, Hutch freezes and the robbers run off with his money and wristwatch. This bothers Hutch and does not impress his wife, son or entourage. Hutch tries to go about his business, but soon realizes that the incident has awakened something in him that demands he let it go.

The first thing I noticed about Nobody was the acting. From what little I knew of Bob Odenkirk, I could not have imagined him in an intense action thriller. It actually reminds me of Die Hard, not because the films are similar (they’re not), but because this film does for Odenkirk what the latter did for Bruce Willis. I don’t know if Odenkirk will be known as Willis now, but that’s what came to mind. Odenkirk embodies this character fantastically and is, in my opinion, the main reason to see this film. I didn’t go in. Nobody expects to feel anything. But especially the beginning of the movie really made me sympathize with Hutch. His job is boring, his wife is distant and cold to him, his son doesn’t respect him, and his brother-in-law considers him a verbal and literal punching bag. Forget burglary, if it was me, I’d leave first. Odenkirk doesn’t seem all that expressive in these mundane scenes, but his eyes speak volumes. He’s equally good in the action scenes. The bus scene seen in the trailers is breathtaking. Connie Nielsen is good as Hutch’s wife Becca, although I don’t think the conflict between them is resolved satisfactorily. Without spoiling the movie, I will say that even after the end, I didn’t know their deal was on. It’s like the movie is saying that his behavior is Hutch’s fault. It’s strange, but even if it is, explain it. Apparently the sequel has already started, so hopefully they’ll deepen that relationship. Alexei Serebryakov plays the role of the villain Julian well, moving easily from comic to menacing. I don’t think Julian is very well written as an antagonist, but that’s not the actor’s fault. Christopher Lloyd, RZA and Michael Ironside are delightful as Hutch’s father, brother and stepfather respectively. When Lloyd and RZA finally spar with Odenkirk, it’s magical (and sometimes hilarious).

I also think it’s helpful and necessary to discuss the difference between Nobody and John Wick. I’m sure no one was convinced that it would even remotely resemble John Wick to attract that audience, and the two films actually share a similar writer and premise. There is even talk of a secret underground group of criminals. Hutch isn’t as lonely as John Wick, though, and the differences don’t end there. None of them are stylistically different from John Wick, and Hutch is not as invincible/vulnerable as John Wick seems to think he is. Hutch talked to him a few times before he really got into shape, which reinforced the idea that he had been retired for a while and probably hadn’t figured it all out yet. It also makes the inevitable fight at the end even more entertaining, because you know it couldn’t have happened earlier in the film. Or rather, if it did, Hutch would be in trouble. The other big difference is that Vic seemed to prefer a quiet life with his wife. Conversely, Hutch is totally dissatisfied with his situation, both at work and at home. I can see that there is an audience overlap between this film and John Wick, but this is not a remake or an old idea with a new lick of paint. All films are derivative, some more so than others.

Odenkirk’s performance aside, the cut is an aspect of Nobody that carries very far. The cuts in this film are fast, visually appealing and, in some cases, quite funny. The action is lightning fast, but you can still see what’s happening, which I appreciate. Nobody’s music is also fantastic. The original music is by David Buckley, and it hits every emotion in every scene. The songs in Nobody really stood out to me because some were ironically connected to scenes that might have seemed illogical, which was very funny. These are also good songs in their own way. I don’t know many movies that only use parts I like and that fit the scenes they were in; only Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes to mind. I usually go through the songs in the film and explain why I like or dislike them or why I think they’re appropriate, but I don’t want to spoil it. Watch a movie.

Overall, no one was a great and pleasant surprise. I wasn’t expecting it to be bad, but I wasn’t expecting anything either, to be honest. Bob Odenkirk is great in this movie, and the rest of the cast is also very good. His performance, action and music leave no one in the dark.
