EJ Moreno reviews the Bob Odenkirk-starring Nobody…
Ilya Naishuller returns to the director’s chair following Hardcore Henry with a new action-comedy, Nobody. While it has a vibrant style and plenty of “dad rock” needle drops, there’s not much else to Nobody. Our host EJ Moreno dives into why this film needed to find balance in its tone to make the action work better.

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 Alexey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia)—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.
Directed by Ilya Naishuller and written by Derek Kolstad, Nobody features a cast that includes Bob Odenkirk, Connie Nielsen, RZA, Aleksey Serebryakov, and Christopher Lloyd. It is set for release on March 26th.
