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)

Neeeeeerrrrrdyyyyyyyy :>

Diane Wu - 2018-02-17
its obvious sony is racist /shrugs/

lenny gaffney - 2018-02-12
"Mary I can't let you go" 😂😂

Tedra Baker - 2018-02-11
Yeah this movie was awful.... Tyler perry Boo was better than this...

Gloria Sarp - 2018-02-11
I fell asleep watching it in the cinema lol

LJ Panther - 2018-02-09
The movie is equal to the atomic blonds and the like, and most of them leave a lot to be desired. Mary's ex boyfriend should have been the big villain. He should have been like a super soldier and stupid scary. But they didn't go all in with him and that's unfortunate. Nice review Dre.

Divine Turner - 2018-02-09
Maybe it’s just me but I think the movie over promoted the car she was driving, I believe it was a Jaguar. In almost every scene there was the car’s symbol front and center. Besides that it was pretty good.

Thomas Fyrehart - 2018-02-09
I'm actually still unsure if Proud Mary even got a release in Australia. If it did it was a "blink and you'll miss it" release. I remember seeing the trailer a few times and wanting to give it a shot, but then nothing. Didn't see anymore trailers at all when I went to the movies (specifically movies its trailer would've been put in front of). Hell I went to the movies several times in January and there was never any mention of this movie, either at the cinemas or on their website. Weird.

Bmac4real 1984 - 2018-02-06
I'm still trying to find out why it's rated R no nudity barely language PG-13 violence

Zach Adam - 2018-02-03
This is the worst movie I ever seen

Kimberly Mosley - 2018-01-28
Proud Mary was awesome!!! Tarajii brought it. I saw it opening weekend and giving it all the girl love. # Blackgirlmagic ❤❤😎☺

Nick Austin - 2018-01-28
They likely didn't do advanced screenings because they knew the reviews were going to be horrible. Sony is likely ashamed of the final product (as they should be). Thank God Jumanji did insanely well (like $600 million in profits or something so far). They can eat the losses they made off this pitiful excuse of cinema. Taraji deserved better. She was the lone shining light. Danny Glover should not have been cast. I'm pissed this black mark is now on his record.

cj kinsey - 2018-01-28
Watch Atomic Blonde instead

Jay Banks - 2018-01-28
It was a good movie.

renden wright - 2018-01-27
A proud marry review I can't finde this anywhere 👍

Logan Strom - 2018-01-26
I love Taraji.

Stephen Atwood - 2018-01-26
It's got a score of 24% on Rotten Tomatoes.  Your peer critics?  Don't agree with you.  They agree with Sony in terms of not expecting much quality wise.

Voice of Reasoning - 2018-01-26
It was trash! We didn't need another blaxploitation movie! Give us a real movie!

Desmond Chars - 2018-01-25
Nice review, been seeing a lot of low scores but it was a movie i wanted to see for the longest. Definitely going to give it a watch (when its free on solarmovies ofcourse)

Jeremy Christensen - 2018-01-25
I really enjoyed this movie. Pretty much start to finish. The only thing that I didn't like, and I would go as far as to say was almost a movie ruin her because it took me completely out of the movie, was when they play The Proud Mary song at the Pinnacle Point of action. That song is way too fun and chipper to be in this movie. This is not a fun movie. This is a awesome movie with great acting and great action and that song just took me straight out of the movie.

Logan J - 2018-01-24
I loved the movie

Andrew Cook Jr - 2018-01-24
Proud Mary was the best movie of 2018 so far I saw it twice take some tissue with you it's a tear jerker.

Sister Carmen - 2018-01-24
too short...Remake Gloria

NYVANCentertainment - 2018-01-24
I badly wanted this to be a good movie but was sadden within about the first 15 mins when I felt how much the pacing felt rushed and how much the situations and dialogue felt forced. Good idea, good actors, bad editing and horrible writing!!...

Dragonetta - 2018-01-23
She was badass in Smokin' Aces!!!

Ani Johnson - 2018-01-22
I will go based on this review!

BotsConsandJedis - 2018-01-21
This review is better than the actual movie.

EmpressB7 - 2018-01-21
Pretty much agree with everything you said Andre. The relationship between Mary and Danny as they try to figure out how to survive in this mess was really what kept my interest the most. I was very impressed with the young man playing Danny and the range of emotion he has to project in all these situations too. You definitely root for them to get out this madness together. Taraji's action scenes with the gunplay were pretty well done too. My biggest complaint would be the very end scene. I thought they could've given us something stronger to appreciate after all the craziness, but the director decided to give us a very "cheap" ending. Otherwise good film.

Colin Smith - 2018-01-21
Great review! Also, I have those glasses.

alpha_ leo84 - 2018-01-20
Sounds like premise from "The Professional" (the movie with Natalie Portman)

ruddiato - 2018-01-20
The movie to me needed some work,but it wasn't really bad, Taraji definitely handled herself well action wise. But story development was a lil bit weak,I would give it 6 1/2 out of 10. I was entertainment.

Wolf Sid - 2018-01-20
I actually didnt enjoy the story that was given. Love the actress and the boy actor though.

A.R Pradipta - 2018-01-19
Movie was bad

Gennette Thompson - 2018-01-19
I have seen the movie and I think this was a very fair review. I love Taraji and loved her in this movie. I would have liked to know more about the relationship between Mary and Billy Brown’s character. The cause of the rift between them was very vague as if it was cut out of the movie. The movie was entertaining.

Patrick Treadwell - 2018-01-19
I used to go to school with jahi we were both in chorus he's such an amazing person and an amazing singer, even if I didn't know him that well I'm really proud of him

BushidoBrownSama - 2018-01-18
if not for movie review channels like yours, Collider, Hyper RPG, and Screen Junkies etc I would have never heard of this movie

Riel Whittle - 2018-01-18
I’ve actually seen a lot of commercials for this movie... they didn’t convince me to see the movie but I’ve known about it for a while. I’ve also seen the trailer in front of a bunch of movies I saw in December. Maybe it’s the channels I watch or something but I was really surprised hearing that many people didn’t know about it/ didn’t see a lot of ads for it.

XZK34 - 2018-01-18
I totally agree with you Sony definitely under sold her. Taraji was very strong in this movie, just wish Nate from How to get away with Murder did would of made it through for a sequel

skinny pete - 2018-01-18
Proud Mary is kind of a remake of Gloria

Dmillz917 - 2018-01-18
I seriously didn't know about this movie until about a week before when instagram showed me a trailer

ishmoose1 - 2018-01-18
Saw it and agree with ur review. Many tropes that had me like ummmmm ok

Temeika R - 2018-01-18
Completely agree. Saw it to support Taraji but felt like the writers took a little blaxploitation added a hint of “Gloria”, a dash of “The Professional” and called it a day. Taraji deserves better.

Marshall Boice - 2018-01-18
I missed her terribly when she left POI.

BringOn TheReviews - 2018-01-17
I enjoyed Taraji but the entire movie was super cookie cutter. Any additional trailers would have put you into the realm of the latest Fantastic Four movie. This whole thing would have been better on Netflix or another streaming service. Again, Taraji wasn't bad at all.

Walter Brown - 2018-01-17
# The Black Version of G GLORIA # Hollywood Recycle ! Taraji P Henson executive producer of the movie so she gets the blame for all the hiring ! Unfortunately it is not like the old Cleopatra Jones movie storing Tamara Dobson ! Now that is one bad mother !

เล็กสั่น แต่ลั่นห้อง - 2018-01-17
I'm from thailand. i like you

Ryan Law - 2018-01-17
sony is a weird company.

Charles Lewis - 2018-01-17
Me and my wife went to see this movie Proud Mary and we thought that this movie was pretty good .

RumbleHD - 2018-01-17
