Coffy Reviews

April 11, 2018
Throw in a frenetic soundtrack, wonderful fashions, ample servings of sex, Sid Haig as a snarling henchman, and a fistful of moustaches and afros, then you have a classic of its time.

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.

Essential viewing for anyone with an interest in the genre, or who wants to see Pam Grier at her very best.

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.

There's no denying the film's savage power

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

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.
