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

As handled by Hill, the sensationalistic elements seem both natural and marginal. Grier as Foxy would be fun to watch even if she kept her clothes on and her claws in.

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

Austin Chronicle
March 13, 2007
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.

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

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

Miss Grier is obviously durable but, unfortunately, is fast becoming a bore despite all the sex, brawls and gore in Foxy Brown.

Christopher Null

A cult classic that's best enjoyed with your tongue firmly in cheek and your political correctness gene locked out in the backyard.

Foxy Brown dubiously embraces its inner minstrel show

James Rocchi
November 7, 2002
Vigilante-justice film flickers between camp and chauvinism, slam-bang action and sexist idiocy.

Foxy Brown exists to give us some shocks and a good time, which it definitely delivers.
