It is so challenging for any creator to create content that has no negative points in it. There always are some aspects in the movie which does not fit in. Nobody movie also has some things which do not work in favor of the film.
The first thing is that it tries too much to be another John Wick when Nobody Movie could be an initially fresh storyline. The movie is criticized big time for being a cheap copy of John Wick.
When you try too much to be someone else, you end up losing your own identity, and you can not be the other person who leaves you in a much awkward situation. The same goes with Nobody Movie, as it losses its own identity.
Maybe there is a chance that both of these characters will crossover in the future, but there is a very slight chance of this happening.
