Coffy (1973) -* * *
Directed By: Jack Hill
Starring: Pam Grier, Allan Arbus, and Sid Haig
Coffy is a classic blaxploitation film. Pam Grier stars as the title character.
Coffy is just a mild mannered nurse, but then her sister gets mixed with the drug trade and is hospitalized for contaminated heroin. She turns vigilante and vows to take down all the drug pushers and pimps.
Like "Foxy Brown", Pam Grier is at her best here. She is the perfect heroine: Sexy and willing to kill. All the action sequences are well-shot and entertaining. Sid Haig plays one of villains named "Omar". He does his usual professional work.
Coffy is a fun and gritty picture featuring a killer performance from Grier. Highly Recommended!
