Beat em up Action!!!! - Nobody (2021) Review

Emmy winner Bob 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 Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon's McMafia)-and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.

What a fun beat-up shoot-em-up instant action classic. If you like movies like Die Hard and John Wick you have to add this one to your list. Action heroes are much more entertaining when the hero takes as many punches as he gives. Takes a beating but still gets back up and delivers are harder hit back. I loved this film for what it was. It's not trying to be anything more than a brass knuckles sucker punch and man does it deliver. Best line in the brought a lot of shotguns...yeah well you brought a lot of Russians. Sit back, pass the popcorn and watch the beat down of all the bad guys.

Ranking 8/10
