"Proud Mary" is as bland as gas station coffee and as generic as bag cereal. What was marketed as a blaxploitation revival with Taraji P. Henson as the firecracker personality at the center winds up not even being comparable to the B-roll of "Atomic Blonde." There's plenty of these mediocre vehicles hogging space in Redbox machines worldwide. We didn't need to go to the theater to experience the same disappointment.
Taraji P. Henson is incredibly badass here and she looks fine as hell doing it. This is a nice little throwback to the blaxploitation films of the 70s mixed with the modern style of today's action films.
