Girl you said what I was thinking I want to support this movie so that more films like it can happen but I think Sony shit on this film on purpose because they do t want to promote strong sexy Black female leads unless they're biracial. There are lots of gorgeous younger Black female actresses that could shine in films like this given the opportunity but based on how they mishandled Taraji they don't want to see us succeed like that. So I'm glad I'm not the only one to catch that

Hate to break it to u but taraji was the exec prod. Everyone was trash.

octasian - 2018-01-16
Taraji had a hand in producing this film also and I believe selling it. The problem was that they tried to make her Superwoman.

How did Atlanta not have one when Columbus, GA did have Thursday showings?

emadrox - 2018-01-16
I do agree that Taraji is a good actress, but Im not a fan of hers, more so, in these types of rolls. She seems strong emotionally on film, but for a hit woman, she doesnt fit the role for me today to make me want to go see it. But ppl can surprise you, and like you said, the film just is pretty bad. And she Executive Producer, she did have say in the crew / script, so she does have some fault off camera.

meh...Doesnt bring anything new to the table...film wanted to be a throwback 70's vibe, but the cliche music cues are suspect as is the story pacing,My summary: "A hitwoman with a change of heart, who leaves her closet full of guns accessible to the kid shes was supposed to kill (!?!) but ends up protecting, eventually gets found out, takes down a whole crew...then drives off with the kid into the sunset..literally.

Ironically...film shot in a big city with all the gunfire/explosions,etc......ZERO police and police cars appeared the entire time!
Would have been better if this were tied into her character from "Smokin Aces" 5/10*

Sadly this is what a call a help a brotha/sista out movie. I have issues with giving Sony money but I had to give them money form this wack movie! I didn't enjoy this movie one bit. It was clear no one behind the scenes cared about this project at all which is a shame! This movie had great potential and had a good cast. Btw the performers here we really good, they just weren't given any direction.
Gotta disagree with you regarding Danny Glover. He was convincing as an unsuspecting yet dangerous crime boss.

Lance Pubis - 2018-01-16
Good review! I thought this was going to be like a Quinton Terrantino, shoot 'em up movie, but it was kind of a boring TV movie. I think it didn't get the promotion you wanted because the studio realized that the movie was a yawner. Why spend money on a ton of advertising when you know that after a few reviews and word of mouth to get out, no one is going to show up anyway....

Mark Colvin, Jr. - 2018-01-15
Sony was on some trash! I love Taraji! Without her this movie would flop harder! Sony wanted to bury this movie. Nice Review Keep it up!

JamesEarlMoans - 2018-01-15
Proud Mary sounds like a not so good version of the movie Gloria from the early 1970's. But I will check it out for myself.

KENNYKENNY 757 - 2018-01-15
ACCURATE review thanks...i love finding new black movie critics (its just a different perspective) hitting subscribe now

Ryan L - 2018-01-15
She’s TERRIBLE playing an action role. Zoe Saldana would have been more pleasing and believable to see.

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.

ebony reid - 2018-01-15
I love Taraji but the movie just fell short. Waaaaay to emotional and the writing was ALLLL over the place and predictable. Their was no true connection. The title itself was very misleading. It was not the action packed film I thought it would be.....

mjbaybgurl - 2018-01-15
I disagree on what you said about Danny Glover. I thought Danny G. did a great job portraying his character.

Caiba Show - 2018-01-15
Great review! I subscribed to see more great content from you!!

Roy Reese - 2018-01-15
Thank you and definitely understand your point of view to support this movie. Noticed in the previews that it was poor editing though.

Vana Phill - 2018-01-15
the studio fails to support this movie. We gotta support this! Taraji deserves better.

Dave Theblade - 2018-01-15
I'm thinking this was a gangster & action packed movie but it's a drama. Super failed...

Joseph Massimino - 2018-01-14
I saw this movie yesterday. I have been a fan of Taraji ever since her days on Person of Interest. It was a sad day when she left that show. The movie was mostly good, and only had one instant or poor acting from the boy. I do mean one instant. I don't know how they didn't edit it out. In any case, I enjoyed the movie, and I have to agree that I had no idea it was coming. I see a lot of movies with a Movie Pass, and I don't recall seeing even one preview of this movie, not in the theatre, or on the TV. Oh yes, Black Panther is all over the place, and it is on my list of movies to see. I guess the movies are pumped by the people who pay for them. Black Panther is full of CGI, so it cost way, way more to make, so that explains the massive advertising blitz . Proud Mary could have used more character building, but that would only cost more money, and I think they just wanted to see if Taraji was bankable. Danny Glover is bankable in movies, he has been another favorite of mine. Don't hesitate to go see Proud Mary, it is an exciting movie, and I give it 7.5 out of 10.

C Nichols - 2018-01-14
Looking forward to watching the movie...

Doctor Dangerd Baskin - 2018-01-14
It was good I like it

Nicole Ross - 2018-01-14
I definitely agree with you in regards to Danny Glover in his role. I ordanarily like him as an actor but this role didnt work for him. Taraji was excellent and I actually did like the relationship between her and the boy. All in all I liked the movie and hope that people will support it.

Jay McG - 2018-01-14
LOL PC Hollyweird trying to create a "Strong women lead roll" And a big pile of shit insues...LOL Liberals fail again

Donald Hunter - 2018-01-14
Great Movie!!! Stop the spoilers in this review!!!

JelaniNaji - 2018-01-13
I really wish that a lot of the action scenes that I saw on the trailer were actually in the movie and yes, Taraji totally carried this movie. I saw it because I am sick and tired of always seeing movies featuring majority Black casts as slave films or Tyler Perry's Madea Does the Laundry or something like that. No hate against Tyler Perry, make your money, but let Madea retire... She's been around in some incarnation for nearly 20 years.

Desharde Mcguffie - 2018-01-13
I saw the movie twice yesterday night I enjoyed every minute of it I don't care what nobody say Taraji can act her ass off for real and can't nobody take that away from her 🤷

I liked the movie

I agree with everything you said

mmarlkraig30 - 2018-01-13
Great actors, poorly written script. You get what you got. They could've left the Ike and Tina theme song out, no situation in the movie heated up. When she knocked off Uncle, and kept it a secret, it left her with no alternative. Honestly, outside if the action sequences, Taraji is so good an actor, she wasn't acting, she was just improvising. Its like, she was just "there". Danny Glover role was not believable, not a trace of gangster in him. To me, the young boy stood out more than the mature cast, he should've had some body counts. I LOVE Taraji, she can play ANY role, which means the writers dropped this assassin movie ball. Loved the Maserati tho, WOOOOH

John Leitaker - 2018-01-13
Nothing about this movie works

Movie Files - 2018-01-13
Great review 👍 been a fan of Taraji since baby boy!

Adam Nibeck - 2018-01-13
Your reviews are great!

owill003 - 2018-01-13
I enjoyed what I could see of the movie with the bad service I had at Studio Movie Grill (as usual and will not pay to go to that theater ever again!) Smhhh! I agree with you on the character build up on the back story of the relationship with Mary & Tom. It didn't make sense nor to me did they mesh well as a couple. I also was thinking that it was going to be like an old movie type feel with how they did the old skool music and typography of the advertisement that put you in the mind of a blacksploitation type of film (I think I said that right) Benny could have been played by someone else and Danny was played good. The shooting scenes were dope but a miss at times for me also because im like they should have gotten hit by now lol but its Hollywood! Lol! Taraji played this character well and was a good bad ass hit woman in this film. I would PAY to see this film only because we need to support black films but it's not a MUST SEE for me unfortunately. PAY to support so we can get past the slave movies n stuff but WAIT to see it because it needed more for me unfortunately. It's a toss up for the PAY or WAIT for me.

Alvin Jones - 2018-01-13
I appreciate Taraji went outside the box to create an action film because I'm tired of the predictable slave, family type movies. I'll check it out simply because of that..Way to go Taraji

Straight Up Reviews - 2018-01-13
Hey a lot of people are really low balling this movie and it's a shame that black movies at are not taken seriously. Taraji is a really good actress and the needs to appreciate her. I knew that the studio of this film would overlook this film and I'm still going to see it. I'm new to your channel and subscribed and also Check me out.

Mae Smith Today - 2018-01-13
Was looking for more action. What save or made this movie easier to watch. Was Taraji storyline with the little boy . However, Danny Glover was little old for this movie role. Would like to see another action movie with Taraji . Only with the black film director.

Riakeem Kelley - 2018-01-13
Taraji is the Executive Producer of the film. You can't say production was trash but then say Taraji saved it. You have to acknowledge some fault, though yes - her acting is the only thing what makes this movie worth it

Latavia Murphy - 2018-01-13
Great review!!!

Greg Morton - 2018-01-13
I agree!  Support!

Nathaniel Davis - 2018-01-13
I give this movie a C+ Only because of Taraji P ❤

sonsolar - 2018-01-13
This movie was TRASH. Straight to Redbox or lifetime quality. Ugh

Imperial stats - 2018-01-13

Onoriode Evwaraye - 2018-01-13
Just saw it.....I totally loved this movie. And I think Danny Glover was perfect. He was supposed to come off like a sweet old man, father type....but really an undercover asshole. Loved it

E Jones - 2018-01-13
I can’t wait to see it

Technicstechnician - 2018-01-13
Looks silly

MrTrey0987 - 2018-01-13
I am going to support this film at the $1.00 movie on the Southside when it get old. The storyline and character development is very important in a film. Yes casting is great Danny Glover and acting of Tariq makes you want to see it. And that is why I will make the sacrifice go to the Atlanta Marta Airport Train Station and take a Lyft to $1.00 movie on the Southside.
