Pam Grier, the voluptuous queen of blaxploitation movies (and the foxy title character of Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown) reigns supreme in this kick-ass action flick. Bodacious nurse Foxy takes the law into her own hands after her main squeeze is murdered in cold blood. The standard revenge plot of Foxy Brown moves along on fast-forward, and the violence ratio (some of it quite gruesome) is high. Director Jack Hill, a master of the low-budget drive-in movie (Switchblade Sisters), made Coffy with Pam Grier the year before. This one's not quite as much fun, but it is decidedly kinkier, and the parade of 1970s fashion crimes is mind expanding. At one crucial moment Foxy saves herself by pulling a concealed revolver out of her mighty Afro--absolutely one of the high points of blaxploitation cinema. --Robert Horton

An indictment of a high level crime syndicate falls through, resulting in the change of narcotics agent Dalton Ford's (Foxy's love interest) identity to Michael Anderson to protect him from possible retaliation of the syndicate. Foxy's brother Link (Antonio Fargas), who runs numbers and sells drugs for the syndicate, discovers Michael's real identity and reveals it to his employers to get out of a $20,000 debt. To ensure that Michael/Dalton Ford "never opens his mouth again in court", the syndicate murders him in cold blood and he dies in Foxy's arms.
This is where the action begins.
Foxy seeks revenge on Link first for pointing the finger on her man and forces him to give up information on his employer. Posing as call girl Misty Cotton, she infiltrates the syndicate's front as a modeling agency to gain access inside the corrupt operation. Once inside, she sets it off as she shoots, stabs, runs over and sets fire to anyone who gets in her way.
The action here is blistering and intense with a most shocking climax. But if you haven't yet seen this movie I won't ruin it for you. This movie is a must see if you are a fan of Pam Grier or of 70's soul cinema in general. 5 stars.
