Proud Mary is an action thriller movie directed by Babak Najafi and released in 2018. The movie stars Taraji P. Henson as Mary, a hitwoman working for a Boston-based organized crime family named The Circle. Billy Brown plays Tom, a member of the gang and Mary's contact within the organization. Jahi Di'Allo Winston plays Danny, a young boy whom Mary takes under her wing after she kills his father.

The movie begins with Mary executing a hit on a bookie who owes The Circle a large sum of money. After completing the job, Mary notices a young boy named Danny watching her from across the street. Later that night, she tracks down Danny and discovers that he is being forced to work for a rival gang called The Haitian. Feeling guilty for orphaning the boy, Mary takes him under her protection and tries to get him out of the city. However, she soon realizes that the only way to protect Danny is to take on The Haitian and bring down their leader, Uncle.

As Mary sets about planning her revenge, she faces opposition from members of The Circle who believe that her focus on the Haitians is putting them all in danger. Tom, who has developed feelings for Mary, tries to convince her to abandon her plans, but she refuses to let Danny be left unprotected. Mary's attempts to fight the Haitians lead her into conflict with other members of the gang and ultimately threaten her position within The Circle.

Proud Mary features intense action sequences, including several shootouts and car chases. The movie showcases the talents of Taraji P. Henson, who brings depth and complexity to her portrayal of Mary. Billy Brown is also convincing as Tom, a man in conflict between his loyalty to The Circle and his feelings for Mary. Jahi Di'Allo Winston shines as Danny, capturing the character's vulnerability and strength in equal measure.

The movie's soundtrack, which prominently features the titular song by Tina Turner, adds to the film's gritty, 1970s-inspired style. The movie's cinematography and editing reinforce the feel of a classic action movie, with quick cuts and dynamic camera movements keeping the pace fast-paced and energetic.

Overall, Proud Mary is an enjoyable action movie with a unique perspective on the genre. Taraji P. Henson's compelling performance and the movie's stylish visuals make it an entertaining and engaging film. Fans of action movies and Taraji P. Henson's work should definitely check out Proud Mary.

Proud Mary is a 2018 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0 and a MetaScore of 35.
