A great crime film, in the tradition of shaft, quentin tarentino movies, and the lone samurai tradition. Taraji was a great lead, Danny Glover brings the power of the crime family boss, and will everyone die???? Probably
I'm a big Taraji fan so I recently brought Proud Mary on Blu Ray starring Taraji P. Henson... The only thing that I regret is that I did not buy this movie sooner... Taraji's role in Proud Mary is like an upgrade of her role in SMOKIN ACES but combined with Columbiana (starring Zoe Saladana) meets The Professional (starring Jean Reno)... Proud Mary was extremely action packed whereas Taraji really made this movie a success by being so pretty, sexy & deadly but wjth a heart-filled conscience all at the same time... I highly recommend this movie to my family, friends, business associates & those who may read my review of this awesome movie... I just regret that BestBuy did not have their "Upgrade & Save" Program because I would've brought a few more Blu Ray copies for family, friends & business associates...
No idea why its not talked about more, such a great action movie. Strong powerful black women is rare in films!
I would recommend this to a friend

Full of Action
I’m a big Tarahi Henson fan, so when I purchased this movie, I knew it would’ve a good buy.
This movie was so awesome. Every actor/actress played their part very well. Danny Glover even as he ages, did a fantastic job. I loved how Mary took on the role as a parent to the young boy, whose father she maliciously killed when he was just only 7 or 8 years old. She saw him heading down the same path of crime that she took so early in her life and decided she wouldn’t let him make that same mistake.
