Director: Ilya Naishuller
Year Released: 2021
"Everyman" Hutch (Bob Odenkirk) - who works for Williams Manufacturing and has a wife and two kids - feels protective of a young woman sitting alone on a bus, beats up the drunk guys on there, and then finds himself in a full-on war with Russian mobster/karaoke enthusiast Yulian (Aleksei Serebryakov). It's neat to see Odenkirk - traditionally a comedian (and star of one of the best shows on television, Better Call Saul) - "breaking away" from his roots, but the screenplay by Derek Kolstad is really just a rewrite of his own John Wick: I'm not sure the thugs deserved being killed just for standing near a woman (and making lewd remarks), and then it turns out Hutch just so happens to have assassin-level abilities that he "kept dormant" when trying to be a "family man." The longer it goes on the more ridiculous it becomes, with his long-lost half-brother Harry (RZA) and elderly pop (Christopher Lloyd) appearing just in time to blow everyone away with shotguns.
