Mary is a hit woman working for an organized crime family in Boston, whose life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad.
Taraji P. Henson smashed this roll! She plays a hit woman that has a bit of a guilty conscience for killing a boy's father. She ends up taking the boy under her wing & giving him a better life. I wasn't sure what to think going into this movie, yet the storyline with the action made it enjoyable!
Very different from advertised, _Proud Mary_ was not groundbreaking, but it appealed to me enough personally that I'd be interested in seeing Taraji P. Henson tackle the character again in the future. _Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
