Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Nobody is 2021’s biggest surprise so far… a well directed, action packed thrill ride that delivers memorable moment after memorable moment across its modest 90 minute run time. Directed by Ilya Naishuller and featuring one of my favourite cheater actors in Michael Ironside, the biggest surprise here is just how believable Bob Odenkirk is as the films titular hero. He’s phenomenal. The story may sound simple – A bystander who intervenes to help a woman being harassed by a group of men becomes the target of a vengeful drug lord – but that really only is part of the narrative. As I review this Nobody is by far the best film I’ve watched in 2021 so far. Highly recommended.
Best Bit: Doc Brown may be more than he seems…
