Trailer Park:Proud Mary

I know a lot of people who just don’t care for modern movies. I can understand the frustration that comes from, but I like to think a good number of movies have some sort of positive element to them. This lets me have the feeling of excitement while watching trailers and coming across one for a project I was completely unfamiliar with. There is nothing quite like sitting in that theater and seeing something that makes you sit up and pay attention. Proud Mary is one of those trailers that made my take notice, make me really look forward to seeing it.

It was directed by Babak Najafi, who last directed the lackluster London has Fallen. This looks a bit like a Tarantino/Rodriguez style homage to blaxploitation action from the 1970’s. It stars Taraji P. Hensen as a hitwoman whose life is thrown for a loop when a hit goes wrong. There is nothing special about that line, it reads like countless films that have come before. The difference is in the execution and style and this movie looks to have the goods. I am hoping that is true, as it looks quite good.
