Proud Mary

Critics Consensus

Proud Mary proves Taraji P. Henson has more than enough attitude and charisma to carry an action movie -- just not, unfortunately, one this indifferently assembled.

Critic Reviews for Proud Mary

All Critics (69) | Top Critics (15)

  • "Proud Mary" isn't a retro action thriller at all, but a staid family drama, and an incredibly boring one at that.

  • Where the movie falls and can't get up is in the dialogue, the camerawork, and the editing.

  • This dipshit drivel guns down Taraji P. Henson's bid for action-hero glory - and it should be ashamed of itself for wasting such talent.

  • Henson's both-feet-on-the-ground performance tries to rein in the chaos, but the simple fact is that she-and the moviegoers, many of them people of color, who will come out to see this film-deserve much better support behind the camera.

  • "Proud Mary" is a flawed shoot-em-up whose heart may be in the right place, but its head is nursing a gaping wound.

  • Ms. Henson, ever simmering, takes Mary's moral conundrum very seriously. Her expressive eyes and nuanced body language work well for the character; she can put across a major change in attitude just by shifting a hip.

    Very different from advertised, Proud Mary was not groundbreaking, but it appealed to me enough personally that I'd be interested in seeing Taraji P. Henson tackle the character again in the future.
