In the new thriller Nobody, the bad guys discover they messed with the wrong man in the form of... Bob Odenkirk? Yes, the unassuming star of Better Call Saul breaks out the fists and improvised weapons in this blackly comic onslaught, playing a family man who is pushed too far.
Odenkirk plays Hutch, a man whose house is burgled and family is threatened. He is eaten up by his apparently passive reaction to the crime, which later compels him to tap into some latent primal rage as he's targeted by a ruthless drug lord. Bob Odenkirk, the badass? Well, the movie comes from the writer/producer duo behind John Wick, so you'd better believe it – and here are some reactions from last night's Cineworld Unlimited screening as proof.
Just watched #Nobody at @cineworld and it was epic. Bob Odenkirk is just sensational and I lost track of the body count and the various methods of maiming. Completely took me by surprise as to how good it was. Round of applause for Bob and the writer Derek Kolstad 👏👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/l5JYBFjh1D— Andy Bower (@Endemoniada71) June 7, 2021
Went to the @Cineworld #UnlimitedScreening of that #Nobody movie and it was great! Some cool action sequences, humour, and a likeable badass with Bob Odenkirk’s character who never misses a beat. Has a solid balance of plot and style. I’d easily pick it over the John Wick films.— AdrenalinDragon (@AdrenalinDragon) June 7, 2021
I really enjoyed it. Bob Odenkirk was terrific as Nobody and it was brilliant how his character was bored with the mundane life and actively enjoyed his more questionable way of life as opposed to the other way round. Thoroughly recommend it. #NobodyMovie #UnlimitedScreening— 💙 Dave & his Magnificent Beard 💙 (@davidlee535) June 8, 2021
The ending was like 3 Kevin's from Home Alone but more violent!— Tinie Tempest ⚒️ (@FabienTempest) June 8, 2021
Really good fun. The script is kind of a big mess but what helps the film stand out is the absurdity of the plot. It’s an action film with a cheeky bit of self awareness to it and it helps make it entertaining and hugely funny.— Kyle Snape (@kylemsnape) June 8, 2021
