One word review: Dapper!
Did you know? There are plans to converge the universes of John Wick and Nobody.
What do you get when you bring together one star each from Breaking Bad TV series and Back to the Future film series? Well, it equates to Nobody. Nobody is an action thriller movie that is quite absurd in its own way but still stays dapper all the way. I just watched the trailer having observed Bob Odenkirk in the thumbnail; I'm a big fan right from the episode he started appearing in Breaking Bad and followed him in the Better Call Saul series as well. I think he is the audiences new favorite right now. What do you think?
Favorite Movie Quotes:
I’m thinking you did the best thing you could. You know, you being you.
The movie begins with an interesting and bemusing exposition of our fidgety protagonist that surely gives the viewers a misleading interpretation. Because what we perceive the protagonist to be, is in fact stands corrected later. Moreover, the action sequences are both impressive and incredible. There are several "How the hell did he manage to pull off that?" moments but in the chaos one tend to forget them. There are indeed certain shortcomings in the movie. To name a few, the background stories of the protagonist and his father are not exposed thoroughly or deliberately. And the antagonist of the film is introduced abruptly though formidably.
I’m a good man. I’m a family man. Most of all I’m a man that didn’t deserve your gun in my face.
The film stands out with an engaging screenplay that makes us forget the drawbacks. Also, the performance of Bob Odenkirk is quite charming and captivating. I felt he is a suitable contender to portray the renowned novel character, an action hero - Jack Reacher, better than Tom Cruise. Yes, such was his performance, in both action sequences and emotional subtleties. Christopher Lloyd is entertaining and it was amusing to see him handling guns rather than time machine equipments here. With few characters to play around, the movie stays enthralling right through and doesn't get tepid anywhere.
They say God doesn’t close one door without opening another. Please God, open that door.
Overall, Nobody is an engaging and entertaining film that is captivating with it's short runtime and racy screenplay. Don't miss out if shows are still available in theatres nearby.
Deep down I always knew it was a facade. It lasted a lot longer than I expected.
Verdict: Swag, All The Way!
