Its real power comes from Hill's potent pulp storytelling and up-front style as well as the novelty of a female hero who takes charge and controls her own destiny.

Peak Grier, Coffy is a sobering story kept at street level, and while Hill keeps the film in the realm of pulp fantasy, the stakes are high.

Are these righteous breasts, or breasts of righteousness? Can they really be both at once?

Grier is the movie's bristling force

Jack Hill directs for maximal suspense, violence, and voyeuristic appeal (which Grier certainly embodies).

If you're looking for nonstop, no-holds-barred exploitation, look no further. Pam Grier's first solo starring role is an enormously entertaining black action classic.

Grier, a statuesque actress with a body she doesn't hesitate to show, is strongly cast. Booker Bradshaw as a city politician and William Elliott as an honest cop score well.

The film totally revolves around Pam and she carries the film with a lethal and sexy punch.

The world Coffy inhabits is revealed as one where social, sexual and political exploitation are simply the norms.

Leaves a viewer with the happy thought that she now can get back to nursing and away from films like Coffy.

Coffy is slightly more serious and a little more inventive than it needs to be.

There's no denying the film's savage power

If only for Grier's performance, Coffy is a must see.

Boxoffice Magazine

Judging by the talents she displays in this action drama, Pam Grier might yet emerge as the first black female superstar in today's market.

If you think the latest crop of skinny white girls (Diaz, Alba, Garner, Gellar, et al.) knows how to kick ass, then you need to educate yourself with a little jolt of Coffy.
