Proud Mary (2018)
My rating: 2/5 😒🍿
This is supposed to be a crime thriller. There's nothing thrilling about it. It seems like a great concept, almostlike it was reaching for an Atomic Blonde (2017) feel but it failed dismally. It lacked so much depth and substance. 😩
The story was just much too predictable for my liking. The badass-ness Taraji was trying to put out felt forced and unnatural. She's a great actress, I tend to enjoy her films but she has disappointed me with this one. On a positive note, I was quite impressed with Jahi Di'Allo Winston who plays the young boy in the movie. He played this role with all his heart shame but it still wasn't enough to redeem this mess.
Also we don't really get many movies with black powerful female assassins. I think a movie like this, redone and rewritten with a more effort put into creating a brilliant plot and storyline with James Bond/ Mission Impossible vibes would do that idea justice. Maybe directed by someone like Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan (Two of my top 5 directors ❤️) . Yes... I'd pay all my money to see something like that. This wasn't it. -
