In cinemas now: Proud Mary
Proud Mary is an assassin-with-a-heart-of-gold action thriller in which the sizzle doesn’t match the steak. The sizzle is all about the blazing guns and badass attitude — about the film’s neo-blaxploitation credits and allusion to the anarchic Ike and Tina Turner version of the title song, about its showy and efficient but ultimately rather routine action sequences, and about the doleful swagger of its star and executive producer, Taraji P. Henson, who knows how to shoot a bullet into somebody’s chest by adding that special touch of mean-it fierceness.
