Nobody is one of those rare gems we can put in a time capsule and show to generation to generation as one of the greatest action films of our era, especially early on in the 2020s where we haven’t had much fun brought our way, Nobody quickly changes that in a fast paced action packed violent film that straps you in a straight jacket and never lets you until the credits roll.
First of all, hats off to whomever decided to cast Bob Odenkirk who gives the performance of his career and man he should we all know him from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. What he does here is something truly unexpected and astonishing it’s a big surprise why he hasn’t been casted as the leading man in action movies before.
Next up is the great Christopher Lloyd who you can tell has an absolute blast playing Bob’s dad in Nobody that we will be reminded why we fell in love with him in the first place and the charismatic RZA who steals the show at the very end as Bob’s handyman who comes to the rescue. I hope we can see more of Nobody as a franchise, it could be the Death Wish franchise of the 2020’s. I think we can forget about the Bruce Willis version of Death Wish now.
I do also wanna give the stuntmen and stuntwoman men on this film so much credit because what they do is as entertaining we see in John Wick you can think of Nobody as a B- Movie John Wick or a Death Wish redo we never knew we needed. Fantastic job all around for everyone involved with Nobody.
Overall grade: 4/5
