Nobody | 2021 | R | – 4.8.8

content-ratingsWhy is “Nobody” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “strong violence and bloody images, language throughout and brief drug use.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes a couple of photos of women and a man in a sexual situation with partial nudity, several very violent encounters with many people fighting one man resulting in many dead or injured people with bloody wounds shown, and nearly 40 F-words and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


An ordinary suburbanite (Bob Odenkirk) gets no respect from his family and colleagues, who perceive him as timid and meek. In reality, he’s a retired government assassin, and his special set of skills come in useful when Russian mobsters decide to attack. Also with Aleksey Serebryakov, Connie Nielsen, Christopher Lloyd, Michael Ironside, Colin Salmon, RZA, Billy MacLellan, Araya Mengesha, Gage Munroe and Paisley Cadorath. Directed by Ilya Naishuller. Several lines of dialogue are spoken in another language with English subtitles. [Running Time: 1:32]

Nobody SEX/NUDITY 4

 – We see pictures of scantily clad women with a man wearing only thong type underwear, and they are in S&M positions with the man bound and the women standing over him (the women’s bare buttocks, cleavage and abdomens are seen and the man’s chest, abdomen and legs are shown).
 A husband kisses his wife. A wife removes pillows that separate her from her husband in bed and tenderly touches his shoulder as he sleeps. A husband talks about not having kissed his wife in a while, or held her or had sex with her. A husband and his wife sleep in a bed with pillows propped up between them in several scenes.
 A shirtless man is seen (we see his bare chest, back and abdomen). A woman wears tops and blouses that reveal cleavage in a few scenes. A woman wears a low-cut top and a short skirt that reveal cleavage and bare legs.

Nobody VIOLENCE/GORE 8

 – A man on a bus fights with five other men with punches and throws: a man is stabbed in the back with a knife, he pulls the blade out later (we see blood) and he uses it to stab another man in the arm and another in the leg, a man’s arm is broken (we hear the snap) and a bottle is broken over another man’s head, a man is slammed with a pole and it seems like his windpipe is crushed as he gasps for air until a man cuts open his throat and inserts a straw allowing him to breathe again (we see the flesh separate and bleed), and one man is thrown through the bus window and onto the street; we see several men with bloody facial wounds, a man complains of a broken nose and another is shown with teeth missing. Many armed men blow the lock off a door and enter a house where a man inside uses a baseball bat to hit a couple of them, stabs one with a kitchen knife, he hits one in the face with a tea kettle with boiling water, and he takes a gun from another intruder and shoots others until one person tasers him and we see him handcuffed and dragged unconscious out of the house and dumped into the trunk of a car. A man uses a broken cocktail glass to cut another man’s face deeply and then kills him (we see the man’s badly cut and bloody face and we hear crunching and slashing sounds). After dislocating his thumb and squeezing out of handcuffs, a man in the trunk of a car climbs into the cabin where he sprays a fire extinguisher on the driver and passenger, they slam into a traffic light, and flip the car (we see one of the people in the car dead with a knife in her head and blood on the wound and the other seems to have his ribs exposed and he is covered with blood as he dies). Two men go to a man’s room in a nursing home; the man feigns to be asleep, shoots both intruders throwing one back against a wall (we see their bloody wounds) and he holds one man quiet as he twitches and dies so that an orderly will not discover what happened.
 Security cameras show a man breaking into a building and attacking several people, shooting some (blood splatters) and fighting others; a man is thrown over a railing, some are thrown against walls, and the first man pours gasoline into a sprinkler system in the building and sets it on fire, causing everything to burn. A man in a car is chased to a factory parking lot where the other men shoot at him and others inside the building shoot his attackers (we see some blood splatter and the man has a bloody shoulder wound); a grenade is thrown and several men are thrown into the air by the blast, an explosive is tripped on a flight of stairs and men are thrown (we see blood splatter), a man is wrapped in razor wire and thrown through a second floor window crashing to the floor below, rebar is launched from small cannons and impales two men (we see blood), a man swings a wrench toward another man and a third man shoots the attacker (blood sprays); a man is shot in the shoulder and blood spurts as he moans and a man carrying a blast shield pulls the pin on an explosive as he charges toward another man and when it explodes the man is thrown back and the other man is killed (we see bloody open flesh wounds).
 Many men in a club hold guns on another man and he reveals that he has an explosive with the trigger pin attached to his finger. A man sets a house on fire and we see many bodies left inside. A man on his knees begs for his life from a man holding a gun on him. A man leads his family out of their house as they walk past many dead bodies with bloody wounds seen; the man covers the eyes of his young daughter who seems to think they are playing a game. A man hears noises in his house at night, arms himself with a golf club and investigates; he sees two people breaking into the house and one holds a gun on him until the man’s teenage son tackles one of the intruders and the man raises the golf club to hit the other but stops and tells his son to let the other intruder go (the boy is punched in the face and we see him with a bruised eye later) and the intruders leave. A man throws a chair at a man in a hospital bed and pounds on him while yelling. A man punches another man in the stomach and he moans and breathes heavily.
 A man speeds away in a car and others chase and shoot at him. A man walks across a busy street into traffic as cars squeal to a stop. Several seemingly intoxicated men board a bus after crashing their car and they stand around a young woman on the bus and seem threatening. A man holds a gun to another man’s head and hits him with the gun (we see his bloody mouth), and the injured man and a woman argue with the gunman to leave their apartment as he asks them for something. A man punches out the window of a car, jump-starts it and then speeds away.
 A man puts on brass knuckles and another man holds a baseball bat as a man asks questions about identifying someone. A man pulls a handgun on another man that seems alarmed and the man with the gun says that the safety is on, but it is not. A man has a bloody face with a swollen and bruised eye and he is wearing handcuffs (he’s in an interrogation room). Several people are shown getting tattoos in a tattoo parlor. A man makes a racial remark about a black man being in a Russian crew.
 A man punches a wall several times and yells (we see his bloody knuckles). A car speeds through construction cones and crashes; the men inside the car get out unharmed and appear intoxicated. Several cars speed to a man’s house and he yells for his family to go to the basement; he engages a security system and locks them in.
 An infant with an oxygen mask on is shown crying in a crib. A man is shown on a ventilator in a hospital bed. A woman cleans and bandages a man’s wounds (we see cuts and blood). A man takes a small kitten out from under his jacket and feeds it a can of tuna. A man blows mucus out of his nose and onto the floor. A man spits and we see saliva.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
