Film Synopsis: Hutch Mansell (played by Bob Odenkirk) is an underestimated & overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on the chin and never pushing back. A nobody. When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. The aftermath of this will cause secrets from his past to surface to ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody ever again! Does this sound like something awesome – or what?
I’m trying to figure out where – and how to start my rating for the film, actually. I will say this about it though: IT IS NO JOHN WICK AND CANNOT EVEN BE CLOSE TO ANY OF THE JOHN WICK FILMS! I can say that because those films are all about planning and precision. To be brutally honest, I think people are lifting this film to be some fantastic, post-COVID blockbuster when really it was nothing but an action film with a bunch of actors that I have never even heard of before except Christopher Lloyd. The main actor, I’d never herd of ever to be truthful – maybe I have never watched anything that he had been in, but in this movie he was kickin’ some butt!
The character in this film did NOT carefully executed or plan anything; to a very bare minimum he did, yes, but not as John Wick does. From the moment that the preview for this film aired that is all that I heard from people that this is another John Wick film. No in deed not! The film was good, but too much emphasis was placed, I feel on Hutch’s very repetitious weekly and daily “boring” aka [NOBODY] schedule. He may look like a boring 9-5pm job person but he had a side to him that no one who double crossed him hadn’t met you and he was a piece of work too.
I was thinking to myself when the movie began – the concept of introducing Hutch the way that they did set the total tone and vibe for the moving so that audiences could better adapt to his chatter and understand why the title of film is called, in fact, a nobody because of his life – his daily routing. It was something of a nobody. Looks can be VERY deceiving and do not judge a book by its cover or how it looks because underneath the surface can be someone or something totally different that what you are expecting! Remember that y’all. Hutch was a person of skill and precision, much like any actor who would play a role like this, but not with much emphasis I would say in my opinion.
In summarizing up the movie, I can say that the movie was all about a man who people assumed was a nobody from his age, and the way that he looked that no one could ever even expect him to fight and have the skills and mindset that he did to do the things that he did and that was the premise of the entire film – NEVER UNDERESTIMATE ANYONE AT ANYTIME…..ANYWHERE!
That was the message that I got from the film. Later on, as the film progresses, Hutch reveals some vital information to some people about his life as to how it relates to how he became a nobody. There is a serious underlying message in the story beneath all of the violence and brutal killing and fighting. In closing, the killings were vile and gory – very up close and personal and it was an action packed movie, just not what I was expecting it to be. It is an enjoyable ‘lil movie, I won’t lie to you!
