In Hutch’s former life, he was what is called an “auditor.” What does this mean? For various three-lettered government agencies, he showed up when there was a numbers problem – specifically, too many people alive. But, 16+ years before Nobody starts, Hutch let one person he was supposed to kill go, and when he checked up on him, that person had a wife, a family, and Hutch got a little jealousy, envious even.
You see, Hutch did have a family, his dad, David, a veteran, and former FBI agent, as well as an adopted brother, Harry, who seems to be into something that’s classified. However, a wife and kids didn’t seem possible until Hutch met Becca. So, in what he calls course correction, he put aside his love of violence, truly became an auditor/ accountant, and settled into his perception of a normal life. He got married, bought a house, has one son, Blake, one daughter, Abby, and a routine.
The problem is, over those 16 years, this routine ate away at his relationship with Becca, her family, and while Abby still loved and adored her father, Blake became a teenager and, you know how that goes. But because Abby still loves her daddy, when someone breaks into the house, and Abby notes her Kitty Kat bracelet may have been stolen, Hutch snaps right back into auditor mode. And even when he discovers it was under the couch, what was started he can’t stop, and just in a random fight, protecting some girl, he injures the brother of a Russian Mob officer named Yulian. Thus setting Hutch against the Russian mob, and in a few days, compensating for all the violence he held back from doing nearly 2 decades.
Other Noteworthy Information
- Obshak: What is considered a 401K plan for the Russian mob, that Yulian is currently expected to protect.
After Becca and the kids are sent away, and Hutch uses money from his auditor days to buy Eddie’s warehouse, Hutch sets up for a final showdown with Yulian, which ends up including his father, David, and Harry. Leading to Yulian and all his men dying, Pavel dies far earlier in the film, and it seems that Hutch has found some balance in his life.
At least in not being the square he became but not fully the murderous psychopath either. However, while shopping for a new house with Becca, since the last one was used to burn Yulian’s men’s bodies, a phone call comes on the realtor’s phone, and it is hinted Hutch may have been called back into action. Leaving a sequel a possibility.
Does Nobody Have Prequel/ Sequel Potential?
A sequel is setup for Hutch to get back in the game. We even meet one of his former contacts as Hutch is ramping up to go against Yulian or preparing himself for Yulian coming after him. Now, does this call for a sequel? I would say no, it doesn’t scream franchise, but when the box office results come out, who knows? Nobody might be a hit.
