Needless to say, Nobody is that movie where in real time safety is an issue never guaranteed, much less respected in an era of dystopia, reining in all subjects whether they like it or not. Crime is such, whether serious or petty, that doesn’t stop at the sleepy-eyed white suburbs.

Hutch (Bob Odenkirk from TV series Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul) is a quiet hard-working gentleman with his wife Becca Mansell (Connie Niesen) and children. Perhaps his worst frustration is missing the garbage man every Tuesday.

However one night, while Hutch and his family sleeps, two robbers stage a home invasion. He holds one robber off with a golf club and forces the other to step back before they steal some cash and his daughter’s kitty-cat bracelet. Well, the theft of the kitty-cat bracelet sets him off.

Not long after Hutch’s house invasion, he comes to the rescue of a lone adolescent girl on a city bus from thugs harassing her. Hutch makes the thugs pay in the physical way. What’s unknown to him at the time is one of the baddies he’s punished is the younger brother of Yulian Kuznetsov (Alesksei Serebryakov), a cold-hearted Russian mobster who loves to party. Yulian visits the hospital to find out who did the damage on the bus.

But before Yulian sends his heavily-armed men to Hutch’s house , Hutch hustles his family away to a convenient shelter in the basement. Then all hell breaks loose as gunfire and severe violence ensue. When Yulian’s goons go after Hutch’s eldely father in a nursing home , the ex-FBI agent (Christopher Lloyd) turns the tide on them.

        Nobody  is worth seeing if only for Bob Odenkirk who carries the movie. The testosterone is high until the bland end.
