With John Wick writer (Derek Kolstad) writing the script and David Leitch (directed John Wick/ Hobbes and Shaw), it is no wonder that Nobody is being compared to the franchise. In the new film, Bob Odenkirk plays a former mob assassin turned family man who taps back into his anger when his family’s home is invaded and his enemies find out that he’s still alive.
Is it the most original idea? no, but it does look like fun. Odenkirk is always a blast to watch, especially when he’s given the chance to let loose. Add to that that his brother is being played by RZA and Christopher Lloyd is his dad? it’s hard not to want to check this one out.
Nobody is slated to appear exclusively in theaters on February 26, but we’d bet that it will end up seeing a dual-release.
“Sometimes the man you don’t notice is the most dangerous of all. Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad) 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 Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia) and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.”
