The biggest thing I took away from Proud Mary is I am happy that I never got involved in gangs or “families” in the Boston area. We all know that line of work is really dicey. There’s many ways in, but no way out. Complications will always arise and the best have a way to sweep them into the darkest corners, while others crumble and end in the bottom of the Charles. Taraji P. Henson may be one of the best leading actresses today, thanks a variety of high-profile films, so it was another unique opportunity for her to give women a chance to shine and be a bad ass. Sadly the story was there, the action wasn’t there, and she doesn’t come across as someone who would be an elite assassin. Nothing about Proud Mary screams must see and the critics haven’t held back on their negative reviews. By the end of the year, I’ll probably forget this was the fifth movie I saw, it’s not rememberable in any way shape or form. 1/10
