Reviews

Misdaadfilm van Babak Najafi (London has fallen; Snabba cash II) met Taraji P. Henson (Empire; Hidden figures). Mary Goodwin werkt als huurmoordenares voor een misdaadfamilie in Boston. Tijdens een klus die niet volgens plan verloopt vindt ze de 13-jarige Danny, wiens vader ze zojuist gedood heeft en die zelf al de eerste stappen heeft gezet op het criminele pad. Mary neemt hem onder haar hoede en probeert zo fouten uit haar verleden goed te maken. Rotten Tomatoes (rottentomatoes.com) geeft een score van 28% 'fresh': 'Proud Mary proves Taraji P. Henson has more than enough attitude and charisma to carry an action movie – just not, unfortunately, one this indifferently assembled.'
