Action-comedy delivers the goods

Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) stars in action-thriller Nobody, in cinemas now.

Character-actor Bob Odenkirk, known primarily for Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, has spent the vast majority of his career playing meaningful roles.

His new action-thriller, Nobody, sees him become an ordinary man with many extraordinary abilities.

After serving as a government-trained assassin, Hutch (Odenkirk) decided to retire, get married, and have a couple of kids.

Hutch, now working for his father-in-law in a metal fabrication company, has become old, stale, and boring.

After burglars break into his home and assault his son, Hutch dusts off the cob-webs and turns back into his old self.

Like with Keanu Reeves in John Wick, Nobody turns a loveable, well-respected actor into a total badass.

Odenkirk, who trained for two years to convincingly play a hitman, commits wholeheartedly to the task at-hand.

With support from director Ilya Naishuller, Odenkirk is flawless throughout the movie’s collection of thrilling set-pieces.

One action scene, set almost entirely on a bus, is worth the price of admission alone.

Odenkirk is backed up by a number of charismatic performers, including Connie Nielsen (Wonder Woman), Christopher Lloyd, and the RZA.

Russian theatre actor Aleksei Serebryakov delivers a remarkable performance as the movie’s primary antagonist.

Nobody is an edge-of-your-seat thrill-ride with plenty of funny moments, witty lines, and likeable characters.
