The film is dated, but its mixed message -- and its potential to offend virtually everyone -- still makes it a powerful discussion starter.

As ever, Hill's potent direction and Grier's impressive screen presence bring this one home, and it was a hit.

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.

Grier is an actress able to convey an amazing and unflinching strength, and she reveals the film for the dross it is.

Sleazy blaxploitation film from the 70s.

The unapologetically exploitative proceedings take a turn for the disturbingly nasty, but manage to generate an undeniable adrenaline rush.

I saw Foxy Brown at Sacramento's Trash Film Orgy and I don't think I've had this much fun watching a movie in a long time. What this movie lacks… More

This may seem a high score for a film that has rather a lot of very average acting, gaping plot holes and continuity mistakes a plenty, but, it works. And how!… More

The shock of the volatile ingredients of "Coffy" have been diluted somewhat in "Foxy Brown." Violent sex, female domination, strangulation,… More

Entertaining and thrilling, definitely worth watching, especially for tyhe music and Pam Grier's performance.
