Henson is thrilling to watch... Too bad she’s stuck in such an incompetently directed mess of a movie.

It’s one thing to watch Henson’s Mary shoot her way out of a world of trigger-happy male oppressors. It’s another to watch her continually get shot down by a movie that’s not worth her time - or yours.

Where the movie falls and can't get up is in the dialogue, the camerawork, and the editing.

Proud Mary isn't a retro action thriller at all, but a staid family drama, and an incredibly boring one at that.

Taraji P. Henson does her best to breathe life into this generic actioner.

Henson is the right actress to play a contract killer grown weary, but as a thriller Proud Mary doesn’t quite do her justice.

The gang-war intrigue is strictly formula, and too much of Mary’s character development is delivered through expository dialogue.

Henson may be due for a Taken-style career boost (and Proud Mary may very well be it). But she deserves so much better than this.

It’s almost a blessing in disguise that Proud Mary is so light on action...

The mob-war stuff here could not possibly be more rote.
