this kind of ham-fisted, ass-kicking filmmaking wraps its bloody violence in air quotes for a breezy 86 minutes, and while it doesn't exactly linger, there's plenty of fun here in small doses; it's a welcome pursuit even under forgettable circumstances
taking itself much less seriously than the "Taken" series and its predecessors, it's a wish-fulfillment romp just as ludicrous as any of them but more fun than most; And Ilya Naishuller stages the action effectively, delivering visceral thrills..
Naishuller's latest is a lean action-thriller full of visceral violence and biting humor; There's no depth in terms of narrative, but none of that matters much when this Odenkirk-led cast is having an absolute blast
like "The Foreigner" with Jackie Chan and Liam Neeson's "Taken" movies, "Nobody" belongs to relatively a new screen genre; Here, the comedy is closer to the surface, thanks to the wit of Kolstad's screenplay and of Ilya Naishuller's direction
chief among the film's modest but welcome pleasures is Bob Odenkirk; Like Keanu Reeves's John Wick -- minus that actor's Zen-hipster street cred -- Odenkirk humanizes and brings humor to a character who is, in essence, a killing machine
