• NOBODY

    From Ogg@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Sun Jul 18 09:55:00 2021
    Hello All!

    Just watched NOBODY last night. Very good. Never boring. I
    liked its overall dark atmosphere, protagonist with a
    mysterious past, the chain of consequences.. and a because of
    his daughter's missing kittybracelet. The mob boss psychopath
    was excellent.

    It is not unlike something I could picture Bruce Willis in as
    the lead, but this seemed fresh and different.

    There's a short scene about a minute or two after the start of
    the credits.

    The story ending is structured to be open for a sequel or "more
    to the story".

    The film had a very cool selection of music throughout.

    The film was reminiscent of what Quentin Tarantino might
    produce. The stylized and choreographed fighting scenes were
    well executed and well edited.

    The music and the wild/crazy action scenes are what reminded me
    of the Tarantino style.

    Some humour, but never in a cheap or disposable way.

    The scene with him reaching into his jacket pocket during
    "interrogation" is memorable. The film provides the backstory
    for that very nicely.

    I dunno. I figured with the ease of using the internet, anyone
    could look it up, read a review and see if the film would
    appeal to them. And I can't hold a candle to your style of
    reviews!

    But in one line.. a family man ends up fighting to protect
    himself and his family from the mob after triggering a couple
    of consequences that lead him on that path.

    As that path unfurls, we learn more and more about his past,
    his father (played by Chrsitopher Lloyd) and why he is pretty
    good at what he does.

    Much about the man's past is NOT disclosed (much like the
    bartender character in The Drop), which seems to be strangely
    satisfying. We want to know more about his past, but there
    isn't too much time 'cuz the mob is after him. So the action
    accelerates as we watch a man use his cunning and mysterious
    skillsets to "make things right" at all costs.
