Synopsis Movie NOBODY 2021

Hutch Mansell seems ordinary. He has two children with his wife Becca and an unremarkable office job in his father-in-law Eddie's metal fabrication company. His marriage is strained, and his working life seems tedious.

One night, an armed man and woman break into his house, and his teenage son, Blake, tackles one of them. Hutch is reluctant to intervene and pleads with his son to release the man, who punches the boy. The thieves leave. The incident causes everyone to think he is a failure. Hutch contacts his brother Harry on a hidden radio in his office and explains that he held back because the burglars were desperate, scared, and using an unloaded gun.

Later that day, his daughter, Sammy, asks for help finding her missing kitty cat bracelet. Without a word, he goes to see his father David and borrows his old FBI badge and gun to track down the burglars. He finds their apartment and threatens them, but when he discovers their sick baby, he leaves. Thugs stop the bus he takes home, and Hutch beats them under the pretense of protecting a young woman from sexual harassment. At home, he realizes he hasn't been communicating with his family and tries to reconnect with them.

Harry persuades him to see "The Barber", who provides Hutch with information about one of his victims: he is the younger brother of Yulian Kuznetsov, a Russian crime lord. In retribution, Yulian sends a crew led by his right-hand man Pavel to capture Hutch at home. Hutch hides his family and kills most of the attackers before Pavel tases him into unconsciousness and captures him. Finding a fire extinguisher in the trunk of a car he is locked in, Hutch uses it to blind the driver causing the car to crash, killing Pavel and his remaining crew. Hutch sends his family to safety before setting his house on fire to destroy any evidence.

Hutch is a former "auditor" ("the last guy any organization wants to see at their door"), an assassin employed by intelligence agencies. After letting one of his targets go free, Hutch found him a year later, reformed and happily living with his new family. Wanting a similar life, Hutch retired, against the wishes of his superiors.

After buying Eddie's company with a stash of gold bars, Hutch burns the Obtshak money Yulian was protecting for the mob, along with Yulian's art collection. Yulian pursues Hutch to the factory with his men, where David and Harry show up to help eliminate the gangsters using a variety of weapons and deadly traps Hutch had set up. They kill all the gunmen until only Yulian is left. Out of ammo, Hutch charges him with a Claymore mine attached to a pane of bulletproof glass and detonates it, killing Yulian. After ensuring that his father and brother escape, Hutch is arrested, only to be released with no charges filed.

Three months later, while buying a new house with Becca, Hutch receives a call suggesting that his services are still required. In a mid-credits scene, Harry and David are shown driving to an undisclosed location in an RV filled with guns.

Critical response

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 84% of 270 critics have given the film a positive review, with an average rating of 7.5/10. The website's critics consensus reads: "Nobody doesn't break any new ground for the genre, but this viscerally violent thriller smashes, shatters, and destroys plenty of other things – all while proving Bob Odenkirk has what it takes to be an action star.

" On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 64 out of 100 based on 43 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A–" on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported 83% of audience members gave it a positive score, with 69% saying they would definitely recommend it.

The Hollywood Reporter's John DeFore praised the film's "enjoyably absurd violence" and wrote: "Taking itself much less seriously than the Taken series and its predecessors, it's a wish-fulfillment romp just as ludicrous as any of them but more fun than most." Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 3 out of 4 stars, writing: "Most impressive of all is Odenkirk, who looks and sounds nothing like an action star until it's time for Hutch to become an action star, and we totally believe this physically unimpressive, normally mild-mannered guy as a simmering cauldron of rage who could take that teapot over there and kill ya with it."
