Pointless Nonsense

Nobody applies the John Wick formula to Bob Odenkirk as a seemingly dull suburban husband and father, resulting in a perfectly entertaining movie that nonetheless fails to capture the magic of John Wick. It doesn’t feel unfair to make the comparison, since it’s written by John Wick‘s writer and has such a similar concept. 

Odenkirk is joined by Connie Nielsen, Christopher Lloyd, RZA, and an old-looking Michael Ironside that makes for a pretty good cast. The soundtrack is a nice selection of familiar but not too familiar (more chase scenes should have Pat Benatar songs). 

I liked the movie, but it lacked the mythology that left me wanting to know more about the world of John Wick. I’m not particularly interested in a Nobody 2
