Proud MaryMary is a professional assassin who works for Benny, a ruthless gangster who heads an organized crime family in Boston. Her life gets completely turned around when she crosses paths with a 12-year-old boy named Danny during her latest hit. Mary's desire to save Danny from the streets and a sadistic drug dealer soon causes an all-out turf war that forces her to do what she does best -- and take down whoever stands in her way.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Proud Mary"
Rolling StoneJanuary 14, 2018
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.
AV ClubJanuary 13, 2018
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.
Detroit NewsJanuary 12, 2018
"Proud Mary" is a flawed shoot-em-up whose heart may be in the right place, but its head is nursing a gaping wound.
New York TimesJanuary 12, 2018
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.
New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 12, 2018
You'd think a movie called Proud Mary would be sonically sensational, but the busy score is so ineffectual that it might as well be coming from the next multiplex screen over.
indieWireJanuary 12, 2018
It's a good thing that [the] characters genuinely care about each other, because Proud Mary sure doesn't, and most of the people watching it won't either.

Buy the soundtrack, skip the movie
The RingerJanuary 16, 2018
It's too aggressively mediocre for all that, and Henson, for her many merits otherwise, is encouraged to deliver a middling performance in kind. The movie knows what makes her worth watching. It simply doesn't know how to make itself equally worthy.
VoxJanuary 16, 2018
Proud Mary is still worth watching for two reasons. One: Winston is a talented actor, one worth keeping your eye on, and the chemistry between him and Henson as a mother figure is genuinely affecting. And two: Henson is just the greatest.
EricDSnider.comJanuary 16, 2018
Most of Proud Mary, for some reason, wants to be a dreary melodrama with little action and much formulaic dialogue.
Den of GeekJanuary 14, 2018
While it's not perfect, Proud Mary is a lot of fun during this gloomy January slump.
SSG SyndicateJanuary 14, 2018
Talented Taraji P. Henson deserves a better franchise.
