What You Need To Know:

NOBODY follows a middle-aged man named Hutch Mansell, who gets back into a world of violence and secrecy after intruders break into his home. After confronting the intruder one evening afterwards, Hutch fends off some young men who appear to have bad intentions for a woman on a bus. In helping the woman, however, he kills a man with ties to the Russian mob.

Now, Hutch must evade this well-connected drug lord and keep his family safe too. Will he be up to the task?

NOBODY takes a while to get interesting. Then, the plot speeds up. So, the movie is only mildly entertaining. NOBODY has a strong pagan mixed worldview where characters act out of selfish motives and revenge. There are some subtle Romantic elements, mainly because the protagonist isn’t content with his life. Light moral, Christian elements involve protecting one’s family, and a cross appearing around the villain’s neck. However, NOBODY has an excessive amount of foul language and violence with little redemptive content. Also, the villain is a drug lord, and there’s some brief drunkenness and miscellaneous immorality.

More Detail:

NOBODY follows a middle-aged man who gets back into a world of violence and secrecy after intruders break into his home. NOBODY has a strong pagan, mixed worldview with Romantic, pagan, moral, and Christian elements, but contains an excessive amount of foul language and violence with little redemptive content.

The movie begins with a middle-aged man in an interrogation room. The officers ask the man who he is and, with a cigarette in his mouth, he responds, “Nobody.”

Cut to the suburbs. This same man, who viewers learn is named Hutch Mansell, seems to live a monotonous lifestyle. Wake up, go to work at his 9 to 5 job, go home, and do it all again the next day. Until one night when intruders come into his house. Hutch has two children, a teenage son and a young daughter. His son gets held down by one of the intruders until Hutch comes to his aid, barely rethinking his plan to hit the intruder and cause serious bodily harm.

While at work the next day, Hutch talks to a radio and expresses a James Bond type attitude about the intruders. It seems that the voice on the other side of the radio is a friend and a confidant, so perhaps they have a history of this type of thing happening.

Through a series of leads, Hutch finds the intruder who threatened his family and shakes him up a bit, leaving his family late at night. It’s clear that Hutch, once again, has more combat training than his suburban life would lead people to think.

On the way home on a public bus, Hutch fights off some young men who appear to have bad intentions for a female minding her own business on the same bus. After injuring and even killing a few of the men on the bus, a Russian drug lord gets notified that his brother was one of the causalities.

Now, Hutch must evade this well-connected drug lord and keep his family safe too. Will he be up to the task at hand?

NOBODY takes a while to get interesting. It feels like viewers have to sit through too much exposition to get to the meat of the plot. Then, the plot speeds up. This said, the writers do a fair job of making the villains obvious, and as far as entertainment value, it’s only mildly entertaining and sometimes a bit cheesy.

NOBODY has a dominant Pagan worldview where characters act out of selfish motives and revenge. There are subtle Romantic elements mainly because the protagonist isn’t content with his life. Light moral and Christian elements involve protecting one’s family, and one cross appearing around the villain’s neck. However, NOBODY has an excessive amount of foul language and violence with little redemptive content. Also, the villain is a drug lord, and there’s some brief drunkenness and miscellaneous immorality.
