Proud Mary Reviews

June 3, 2019
Often gets bogged down in cliches, but Henson is just so good, and Najafi's direction so solid, that the film resonates in spite of its occasionally wooden dialogue.

A striking ineptitude of pacing and motivation.

That's the biggest problem with Proud Mary: The film is boring. The characters are boring. The dialogue. The settings.

The idea of Henson as a cool action hero is something most movie fans can get excited for, but she needed a much better film than this.

Proud Mary is shamelessly gimmicky in execution as it halfheartedly attempts to ape an iron woman's anti-hero empowerment. Ultimately, it's banal, drearily conceived and plodding, delivering very little for this Mary to be proud of.

Proud Mary is disappointing in every way imaginable.

This movie and this studio does not deserve Taraji P. Henson.

Even while the rest of the film collapses around Taraji P. Henson like a poorly made soufflé, she gamely holds up her end of the bargain.

Solid, if unremarkable.

It's just an action flick that underwhelms on the action front despite a thoroughly committed performance by its star.

Perhaps the biggest slight against "Proud Mary" is that nothing happens. It's an action movie without action. It's a drama without real drama. In short, it's a complete bore.
August 26, 2018
Perhaps most egregious of all, the film cannot seem to nail down Mary as a character.

Well...this could've went to television.

Ultimately, I did want more action, because when those scenes did happen, they were a sight to behold and most definitely one of the film's highlights, I still enjoyed Proud Mary.

A silly plot made worse in its bizarre exposition, Proud Mary is full of clichés that almost begin to feel deliberate, so hacky that you almost chance to believe the movie is self-aware, a parody of itself.

There's a good movie buried within this unimpressive effort. Thank goodness for Taraji.
March 19, 2018
Proud Mary delivers on its shopworn promise: the heroine is wronged, riled, and puts things right in brisk fashion. In a time of bloated blockbusters, the no-nonsense approach offers minor pleasures for genre fans, if little else.

Make no mistake: [Tarji P.] Henson's not the failure. The film failed her.
February 20, 2018
Tarji is good. The idea of her character is good. The idea of this movie is good. But you can tell that there was someone in the writer's room that was like, "Let's just go back to our usual tropes about these kind of movies."

Isn't anything special or groundbreaking, but it's watchable, competent and at times exciting, and deserved better than a burial
