Kudos, though, to Henson, whos mesmerizing to behold even in this drearily predictable bit of throwback blowback.

"Eighty five listless and largely incoherent minutes later, a lot of people are dead."
Proud Mary doesnt deserve the lack of faith its studio has in it.
They got the right star for sure, but they havent given her a proper vehicle.
The sadistic relish of shitty, grade C grind house movies seems finally to have bridged the age and gender gap.
Its the best and most exhilarating moment in an otherwise paint by numbers B movie.
If you have Taraji P. Henson, the wherewithal to invoke the badass funk films of the 70s, and the willingness to murder a pile of bad guys, then why n ..
This action films lack of originality and cleverness is made worse by a self defeating visual style and overuse of music.

The Young Folks
Its the kind of total mess that we see dumped in January every year, and an unfortunate waste of the many talents involved.
Proud Mary is an entertaining enough thriller with some flare from director Babak Najafi, but works best as Taraji P. Hensons action vehicle.
But the mood is ruined by sloppy direction and an offbeat rhythm.
Babak Najafis Proud Mary is a so so action melodrama with an insulting whiff of generic blaxploitation stylistics.
But most of Proud Mary, for some reason, wants to be a dreary melodrama with little action and much formulaic dialogue.
Eric Ds Nider
What keeps the movie afloat is Hensons remarkable star powershe has the ability to be tender hearted and steely eyed almost in the same breath.
Shes a talented actress and a force of nature, but her taste in scripts leaves much to be desired, as found in recent gigs such as Term Life and No Go ..
Proud Mary lets down its more effective, character driven elements, though, with its reliance on a routine story and generic action.

Its heroine may be proud, but the same cant be said for Screen Gems, which is doing everything it can to keep Proud Mary under a bushel.
Filmmaker Michael Gracey does a fantastic job of immediately drawing the viewer into the briskly paced proceedings, as The Greatest Showman kicks off ..
With such an appealing title, star, genre and song, what could have gone wrong
Its a copy of a copy of a mediocre original, with the drab aesthetics of a TV movie and the emotional hollowness of an infomercial.
Although the plot mechanics are no more or less implausible than any such genre film.
The New York Times
Henson holds it together and, at moments, comes close to convincing you that youre watching a better movie.
Despite its flaws Proud Mary is a very good and solid action drama fueled by the top notch cast.
In a time of bloated blockbusters, the no nonsense approach offers minor pleasures for genre fans, if little else.
Proud Mary would be nothing special if it did not star Taraji P. Henson. But it does, and as a result it stands out like a beam of sunshine piercing t ..
This unfortunately means were left to laugh at the film instead of with it.

Thats what watching this film is like.I would bet good money that theres at least half an hour of deleted material on a cutting room floor somewhere.
The action flick, all but buried by its studio, has some good hidden deep in its rubble Jahi DiAllo Winston and Taraji P. Henson star in the action fi ..
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 ..
Theres exactly one scene in Proud Mary that delivers the sort of violent, kicky thrills that audiences will spend most of the film waiting to see.
Consequence Of Sound
Najafi deserves a certain amount of credit for crafting more nuanced characters than is expected in a movie like Proud Mary .
"Director Najafi previously directed the largely awful London Has Fallen, another film with dull characters and rote action scenes, but that at least ..

But its certainly no worse than your average Liam Neeson action vehicle.
And for 90 minutes, Proud Mary delivered to me a campy, enthralling and fun movie.

I would have assumed that $14 million at least means you can afford some ADR sessions.

Mary gets riled and ends up leaving a lot of bad guys bodies strewn about.
Proud Mary is modestly enjoyable for what it is, but thats not saying a lot.
But rarely ridiculous enough to give it an over the top feeling of crazy fun, if that makes sense.
At least youll never lose one minute of sleeping worrying about the way things might have been.But you may wish to test drive a Maserati.
Mid West Film Journal
It continues a fine run of recent roles.The film never landed on the Oscar radar, but shes without a doubt the best thing about it.
Never could I imagine that a film about an assassin could have as much heart as it did but Proud Mary surprised me.
Geeks Of Color
Disparate characterizations are fine if the purpose is there, but here nothing matters.
The movies script is shaky, indecisive about whether to be a sudsy thriller or a romp.
