Bob Odenkirk plays a seemingly ordinary man with a hidden set of special skills in this John Wick-style action movie.
Bob Odenkirk – who is best known for playing lawyer Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul – is not an actor you would expect to lead a John Wick-style action-thriller, but that’s the whole point.
He portrays Hutch Mansell, a seemingly ordinary man with a wife, Rebecca (Connie Nielsen), two kids, an unremarkable 9-5 job, and he seems to be moving through his monotonous life on autopilot.
One day, he steps in when a young woman starts being harassed by a group of drunken louts on a bus – but it turns out they’re not just random people, Hutch has inadvertently messed with men connected to Russian Mob boss Yulian (Aleksei Serebryakov), who now wants revenge.
If you’re a fan of Keanu Reeves’ John Wick films then you’ll be sure to enjoy Nobody too.
It’s written by that franchise’s creator, Derek Kolstad, and is basically a lighter and more comical take on those movies.
