Coffy is a nurse by day and avenging angel by night. When she discovers that her little sister has been doped up - and freaked out - by a greedy drug pusher, she not only puts an end to his miserable days, but she vows to follow his trail of corruption up to the top. But what Coffy doesn't realise is that all is not what it seems - and that the leafy green behind the pushers' scene just may come from someone she knows.

Format: DVD
Maxim magazine lists Coffy as number 7 on its list of the 50 best B-movies of all time, and there can clearly be no mistake about its status as a B-movie. Pam Grier shines in this hilarious action-packed blaxploitation flick where she first got her name as a 'black pin-up queen' during the early 70's. It is apparent after watching this film that no one remembers this for the bad-acting and dialogue, but for Pam Grier herself she is one mean sister.

This movie SCREAMS 'early 70's', from the afro wigs to the awesome outfits Coffy finds herself wearing whether it be at a gala for call girls or when she's undercover to kick some drug-dealer's nasty behind!

This brilliant film mixes comedy right in there with the action. From the campy catfight scenes when Coffy dumps a salad bowl onto a blonde girl's head, to when King George makes his first appearance and steps out of his car in his pimp outfit, complete right down to the feather in his hat!!! Just seeing Coffy smash a wine bottle on a table to defend herself against a crack head wielding a knife is riotous enough and also goes old school by putting razor blades in her hair!!! The action is fairly consistent. There are a lot of guns firing off and endless catfights.

But every time Coffy appears on screen and you just KNOW that some bad stuff is about to go down, you know that you're going to be taken for a fun ride! As I mentioned above, no one is watching this movie for an Oscar-nominated performance or even a decent soundtrack (the "Coffy" theme sung by the Gladys Knight & The Pips-wannabes halfway through the movie is timeless!!!) - You're there to be entertained... and entertained is what you'll get, guaranteed. This is one movie where you don't have to be drunk to enjoy it.

Coffy is just mindblowing. Pam Grier plays no nonsense Coffy who goes through mob boss to mob boss determined to wipe out the local drug trade after her sister becomes addicted to drugs because of them.

It's a hyper violent ride of a movie and you can easily see why Quentin Tarantino rates this movie as one of his favourites.

The script is sharp and acting all round is great with a tight direction and a movie dipped right into the undercurrent of the 1970's. Also has a great soundtrack to boot.

For it's genre Coffy quite possibly is the greatest of them all.
Folks, they simply don't make em' like this anymore.

Described as one of the greatest Blaxploitation movies ever and I can see why, this is a great movie from start to finish, an action packed story-line full of sex and nudity and brutal executions at the hands of the beautiful Pam Grier, this is one girl who knows revenge, after her little sister becomes ill because of drug dealers and gangsters Coffy decides the law is not good enough at their job and decides to dish out her own justice, the movie has its violent moments with plenty of cool gun play, there's lashings of nudity, and a fantastic cast all the way, Pam Grier of course back in the 70's was smoking hot and plays one mean woman, Sid Haig makes a younger starring role too as usual playing a cool gangster, this is a very iconic movie that's well paced out with an awesome soundtrack too, this is the movie Pam did before Foxy Brown but personally I think this is a better movie, really worth checking out now especially as Arrow films have released such an awesome Blu-ray.

Blu-ray picture quality looks fantastic in HD

Pam Grier is Coffy, a nurse, who decides to deal out her own justice on the the drug dealers of Los Angeles after her younger sister becomes one of their victims. When her friend is shot who is a police officer, she becomes even more determined in tracking down the culprits.

This is a blaxploitation film from the 70's. If you like films such as Shaft which also falls into this genre, then you should enjoy this one. It is violent, and probably depicts accurately what life was like in 70's America. The follow up film was Foxy Brown, also available on blu ray from Arrow. I also have this film on dvd, and compared the first 5 minutes of each. On the dvd the colours are washed out, and the print that was used is peppered with white speckles. No such problems with the blu ray, it has been remastered. However, there are a few instances of a mild layer of digital noise, but this only lasts for a few seconds, and is not constant, so does not detract from the enjoyment of the film.

Picture Quality is good, with a sharp image. Colours are good This blu ray transfer is in the original aspect ratio of 1.85:1 The sound is in the original mono.

The other reviewers for this film have (again) already covered most of what there is to say, but... for those of you who cannot be bothered to read massive write ups.
Pam Grier is absolutely stunning in this film. She is one of the most watchable actresses of all time and she can deliver a line, which helps. Great film, very funny, reasonably violent and highly enjoyable (for a b-movie)
