Watch the trailer and you've seen all the good parts.

All the cool stuff is in the trailer. And I am so sad because I love Taraji P. Henson. And she's not the problem. She does a fine job. It's the script. The story is disjointed. We don't spend enough time laying pipe at the beginning to care about anything in the middle or the end. It's like it was too long and they cut it down to time by randomly selecting scenes to remove with no consideration to continuity or flow.

Mother Adopts Boy She Orphaned Only To Find a Blossoming Motherly Instinct
Verified purchase
Mary's hit job goes fine, but a young Danny (Jahi Di Allo Winston) is left an orphan who ends up in the streets as a runner for the Ukrainian mafia as a twelve or thirteen year old. Mary, the assassin doesn't "do kids", and she also wants out of the organized crime family that adopted her as a child and trained her as an assassin. Secretly following Danny over time she eventually adopts him, at first because of the guilt she feels for having caused his predicament, but she soon discovers in herself the blossom of a motherly nurturing instinct. This is a well-crafted story with emotional gravity to boot; a well-told story that dispenses with so much fluff; an action film wrapped around a compelling drama that does not seek to be a philosophical treatise, but provides 88 minutes of satisfying entertainment well worth watching. Taraji P. Henson's is convincing and fun to watch as Mary. Director Babak Najafi has done a terrific directing job and deserves plenty of credit for this great film. I highly recommend this film.

" A Definite Must-See"
Verified purchase
I love anything that Taraji stars in and this movie is definitely now one of my favorites. I like that she expanded her acting horizons to play a role so different from what I am used to seeing her play. This movie is a definite must see.

This is such an awesome actress... and this script was such a crappy script. I have seen her in other roles/movies and she has been nothing but awesome... and it was predictable guns, violence, nobody, no story... sad...

Go, Mary, Go! This movie rocks!!!
Verified purchase
More please?! I really want there to be a Part II of this movie or some sort of sequel. The Mary character is great. I wanted to run out and buy a cool sports car, a pistol and a pair of leather driving gloves.....Ok so maybe just the leather driving gloves. ;-)
Taraji does a fantastic performance and gives this character real presence. Her interaction with the kid, Danny, is fun and adds a warm nuance to the story. Jahi is believable in the Danny role---All the way up to the finish he had me wondering (even if just a little) whether or not he would hug her or shoot her in the end.
I watched this movie on my iPad while on a flight. The lady sitting next to me watched also with the CC on. She liked it so much she was talking back to the screen. Lol!

Save your money, this was tough to watch.

This film was a mess. As one reviewer put it, the only good stuff is in the trailer! Taraji P. Henson is a good actress, but even her talent could not save this dud. I do not understand the positive reviews at all. Strange editing, week dialogue and plot. However, the editing was most egregious. There had to be some film student who would have worked just for lunch and course credit so why did this turn out so bad? There is literally a scene where they cut to the windows of a building for no discernible reason.

I have a great respect for Taraji P
Verified purchase
This remake of the cult classic has a contemporary flare of the right amount of feministic compassion in an underworld of violence. The plot is balanced with an interesting concupiscence surrounding Tom and Mary. I have a great respect for Taraji P. Henson, as she is a "damn good actress" and is constantly challenging herself to portray diverse multileveled characters with depth and intelligence. Besides, the clincher is, the last scene is a fast moving action packed thrill of justified revenge. Armageddon!
