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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
