A little bit of everything
13 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Surprisingly, the best thing about this movie was the genuine on-screen connection between Taraji P. Henson's character Mary, and a young man named Danny (who's portrayed by Jahi Di'Allo Winston). I know... the trailers don't really give you much about this relationship... but it turns out to be an essential and rather uplifting part of this story. These two give us an effortless performance of a bond that seems so natural and authentic, that it led me to believe they formed one in real life. I often found myself smiling and laughing at the jabs they took at each other, and the way they sometimes jokingly tested each other. It was great to see this connection on film.

Proud Mary was a little lighter on the action than I expected... and I would've liked to see more action earlier in the movie... By the time you really see what Mary can do... there had been NO previous indication that she was capable of such things. Yeah she has fancy drawers full of guns... and a closet full of wigs but none of that got much use.

But what's important is that I still enjoyed the story that was being told. The story was simple... but brilliant actors brought it to life in a way that was entertaining to watch unfold. Jahi Winston is a phenomenal actor and very early on I knew I'd be rooting for him. Billy Brown and Danny Glover were great as well... I expected nothing less. And of course... Taraji brought her own swag to this role.

Ultimately this was fun & entertaining and surprisingly had me in my feels much more than I expected from watching the trailers. I recommend this to anyone who's up for a comedy, action, crime, drama lol... Seriously though... it had a little bit of everything!
