Blaxploitation icon Pam Grier stars as Foxy Brown, a sexy but streetwise woman whose ne'er-do-well brother Link (Antonio Fargas) is a drug dealer who owes mobsters 20,000 dollars.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is dated, but its mixed message -- and its potential to offend virtually everyone -- still makes it a powerful discussion starter."
‑ Barbara Scharres, Chicago Reader
"The unapologetically exploitative proceedings take a turn for the disturbingly nasty, but manage to generate an undeniable adrenaline rush."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Adequate pulp carried by the engaging Pam Grier"
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"Vigilante-justice film flickers between camp and chauvinism, slam-bang action and sexist idiocy."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"Grier is an actress able to convey an amazing and unflinching strength, and she reveals the film for the dross it is."
‑ , Time Out
"This is fun action sleaze from the classic era of drive-in blaxploitation films, driven by the no-nonsense direction of Jack Hill, and did well enough at the box office to help put the still-gorgeous Pam Grier on the map. Don't miss it."
‑ Jerry Renshaw, Austin Chronicle
"A cult classic that's best enjoyed with your tongue firmly in cheek and your political correctness gene locked out in the backyard."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Foxy Brown exists to give us some shocks and a good time, which it definitely delivers."
‑ Kurt Dahlke, Apollo Guide
"Miss Grier is obviously durable but, unfortunately, is fast becoming a bore despite all the sex, brawls and gore in Foxy Brown."
‑ , New York Times
"Sleazy blaxploitation film from the 70s."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Foxy Brown dubiously embraces its inner minstrel show"
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Fearless, explosive action. Grier is astonishing."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
