Andre Black Nerd Review of Proud Mary. Proud Mary Movie Review from Black Nerd Comedy. Proud Mary Review plus Black Nerd Rants on Sony Pictures not marketing or having preview/critics screenings of this movie. The movie is not the best, but definitely not the worst, and definitely has an angle with being a strong black female lead in a genre action film that could be marketable regardless of how the movie is reviewed after seeing it. Proud Mary (2018) stars Taraji P. Henson, Billy Brown, Danny Glover, Neal McDonough, Margaret Avery, and Jahi Di'allo Winston.

PROUD MARY - Movie Review and Sony Rant (Black Nerd)



Patrick Trujillo - 2018-01-16
Have you considered that Ghostbusters is the very reason why they’re scared of promoting female-led action films? It’s ridiculous reasoning, but I wouldn’t put it past them.

Lewis Norman - 2018-01-16
This movie didn't deserve Taraji! Haha it looked like Sony didn't wanna produce this but somebody was friends with Mazarati and they promised to float the cash as long as there was a car in EVERY OTHER SHOT. It just looked like they ain't have a dime, I'm sure Henson put up some $$ Hopefully there's a sequel and some backing I liked it.

I saw some commercials here in Florida. I saw a few on YouTube as well but it's unfortunate that a decent movie didn't get much promotion.

The_other_black_guy - 2018-01-16
The scene where they actually play Proud Mary had SO MUCH energy. It was paced well and was a good time. The rest of the movie lacked that energy and it was a real let down. There was a good movie screaming to get out of this subpar one

DOOMsword7 - 2018-01-16
Why wasn't Taraji P Henson promoted like Ghostbusters... well Ghostbusters is a sequel/reboot for one. If it was just a bunch of women in a movie nobody would care , but if I remember there was some controversy around it eyeroll

But I get your point. I just heard about this last week. And I love the actress. She should have had a better push. As much promotion as she got she should have had more. THIS is a good idea for a movie!

literallyalesbian - 2018-01-16
I feel like this movie was super good and my only thing was they could've leaned harder into the 70s theme for it like if they found like those old 70s cop show themes that would've pushed it to be really good for me, like proud Mary could've been like a atomic blonde but with 70s aesthetic. I actually appreciated some of the slow burn in the movie and I think Sony really did Taraji wrong with this movie because they pushed 2 similar movies in the commercial before this one, red sparrow and den of thieves which looked pretty boring and derivative comparatively to Proud Mary. I think Proud Mary really shines with the interpersonal moments and the fact that Taraji really gives that raw emotional edge and like a really refreshing vulnerability that most action movies don't really have. I really did love the genre blending when they focused on the kid too, it was pretty interesting stylistically

I saw it and I am just so happy they didn't treat her as eye candy ala have her show as much skin as possible.  the beginning felt similar to any other action movie where the hero is just getting ready.  It was enjoyable and made even better by comments from the audience.  And thank you for reminding us all of street fighter legend of chun li.   I completely forgot that actor was in it but you had to bring that up again. ^_^  Thank you so much for not suffering alone and sharing that tidbit with us all.  >)P  ^_^

Jaznellow - 2018-01-16
Definitely gonna watch this. Taraji is a queen!👍

Kenneth Miller - 2018-01-16
wait was Chun lee or was proud mary a OK movie?

dj will - 2018-01-16
Must be the only film shot in a city with bad guys/girls with guns,etc and there were ZERO cops...THE ENTIRE FILM......NONE. Corny cliche'd music cues....disjointed pacing and stiff acting.

Bill Kelly - 2018-01-15
Your review is completely on point. The studio shouldn't have abandoned PROUD MARY. Taraji P. Henson kicks ass is all I needed, too. I was looking forward to the movie and it didn't disappoint.

Mad angel - 2018-01-15
Awesome review you are hilarious. Also we know why sony didn't promote it that much.

Snowdodger1 - 2018-01-15
Hey bro, react to the "Emoji Movie 2" trailer (a.k.a Teen Titans Go Movie)

FallClassKids - 2018-01-15
fights urge to give this video a thumbs down for the Legend of Chun-Li reference

Jamille Mendoza - 2018-01-15
She's the Black John Wick basically it's John Wick for a black audience

RascalThaDemon - 2018-01-15
5:56 Looks like you were imitating Nostalgia Critic in a funny way lol

theblackryan - 2018-01-15
They actually advertised it alot during nba games.

AnnMarie Kerr - 2018-01-15
Please go see “Mary and the Witch’s Flower”

Brick Tamland - 2018-01-15
I just found out Taraji is Jim Henson's evil step sister.

The Unicorn - 2018-01-15
Yeah, I thought it was going to be terrible based on how it was being promoted. I’m glad that it isn’t terrible after all, and also glad I wasn’t wrong about why it did BECAUSE of its promotion. Sony really needs to learn consistency. But I’m glad I watched this review. It changed my perspective on preconceived notions I had for it, and now I’ll be giving it a shot in the future.

vicki s. - 2018-01-15
Danny Glover played a great roll

D_MAJR - 2018-01-15
Taraji P Henson was good in this....thats about the only good thing I can say.

Chad Sabourin - 2018-01-15
Proud Mary is the newest Female Action oriented film. Is it any good? Give my review a watch to find out.

elizabethashley42 - 2018-01-15
Proud Mary trailer played before video. 🤣

Pete Adams - 2018-01-15
I saw it, it was a pretty good movie. I wish they would have promoted because in my screening it was all Black folks and half the theater was full.

Rohan Sharma - 2018-01-15
Didn't release here but so didn't Get Out, any movie with black leads doesn't release here, even Girls Trip didn't release here. Chandigarh U.T tricity area in India, if anyone is interested.

Masterofvore NeX - 2018-01-15
Went to see the movie last night and it was pretty filled up.

I was the only white person there.

Moshe Jonathan Gordon Radian - 2018-01-15
I wish you’d mention Person of Interest somewhere in there - it’s definitely not her first rodeo as a badass gunslinger (though probably the first on the big screen, like you said). Otherwise - can’t agree with you enough about how badass she is. Glad you reviewed the movie too because like you said - promotion seemed crappy for the movie or at least I saw no promotion for it.

JoanieDoeShadow - 2018-01-15
Now I am interested in watching Proud Mary. I had no interest in it before because the poster just looked like a sycodelic poster from the 60s or 70s so I thought it was going to be a political period piece of drama that I just wasn't in the mood for, but a fun shoot em up with heart, okay I'm down for that.

Abrasive Angel - 2018-01-15
The trailer made the movie look like it was cheaply made so I just stayed away from it. I knew the studio was trying to sell it because of Taraji but it just looked wack.

Hey Andre, can you give your thoughts on the fan film Voldemort Origins Of the Heir which was released on January 13 on a channel called Tryangle Films?

teenage spaceland - 2018-01-15
I've only heard of this movie because I look at a list of theatrical releases every month! You're the first person I've heard actually mention it smh.

afroindia42 - 2018-01-15
Love this channel. Keeps it 💯...will still watch the film, but I trust his opinion.

Samuel Polay - 2018-01-15
Proud Mary may be the funniest (unintentionally of course) movie I’ve seen in ages. Sony could have tried to cut their losses and get the same crowd that patronizes midnight screenings of The Room.

Tierney Joi - 2018-01-15
Mannnn, I was so disappointed with the movie as a whole. Loved seeing Taraji play the role. Hated the storyline for the reasons you mentioned. I would get more into it, but #NoSpoilers.

Cliff Colter - 2018-01-15
Just left the movie and agree with you. TPH is awesome and the young man did a great job. It could have used more character development and more action scenes to me. But overall I give it a 7.

Joseph Sanfilippo - 2018-01-15
You should review Paddington 2

I am actually looking forward to see this movie tariji is awesome actress I like her in empire and overall she is enjoyable

Kennedy Stuart - 2018-01-14
You are awesome Andre

mjamitche5 - 2018-01-14
Thanks for doing a fair review for this movie. I hate it when people overly judge the Black version of the same thing White films are doing, but give other films a pass. They hold the Black films to higher standards when they have less money, inferior release dates and zero marketing. Black films wind up having less opportunities to succeed thus build on each other.

Diarra Harris - 2018-01-14
I remember saying in the theater "is that Damien Darhrk?"

Krista Vaillancourt - 2018-01-14
Peraonal problems for another time. Lol

mary Jacobs - 2018-01-14
Hi shalom
I really want a sailor moon to come out in America.

MovieDive - 2018-01-14
I appreciate that you're trying not to bash this movie, but it was really bad, on too many levels. Taraji is fantastic and I love her, which is why seeing this movie hurt my heart. They should've given her a better film.

Paper Mario - 2018-01-14
We’ll be there. Chain chomp, cousin

Sy A - 2018-01-14
Damien Dhark is everywhere these days.

JacobPea - 2018-01-14
You are like the only person who regularly uses the new REELS thing

deadpoolsnutz - 2018-01-14
Watched the trailer a few times wasn't interested. But Cookie, hell yeah.

Rf Natural - 2018-01-14
I love how you mentioned Set it Off!
