Product Description

Seventies auteur Jack Hill directs the equally renowned Pam Grier in this Blaxploitation thriller.

With the help of her drug addict brother (Antonio Vargas), she poses as a prostitute in order to infiltrate the crime ring.

Fun action sleaze from the classic era of drive-in blaxploitation films. --The Austin Chronicle

4.0 out of 5 stars bad doesn't necessarily mean bad 18 July 2013
Format:Blu-ray
In the cold light of day Foxy Brown is terrible. The action is awful, the acting isn't much better and its beyond dated. Yet, that doesn't make it a bad film. This is because Jack Hill has made this film with such a lack of cynicism. When there's lines like: "I'm a black belt in karate" Foxy smashes her over the head with a chair. "Yeah, well I'm a black belt in bar stools", it's pretty hard not to have fun. Foxy Brown is the perfect capsule of 70s action, and Pam Grier has buckets of charisma, enough to mask any lack of raw talent. Of course its full of soulful cool of 70s black culture and is in possession of a killer soundtrack. Although hard to justify to young audiences, this raw, low budget quality is what makes the whole thing so endearing and so much fun.

Another great blu-ray mastering from Arrow Films.

3.0 out of 5 stars She kicks ass!! 25 Mar 2004
By Jekyll
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Its slightly dated, but if you like your funky, big afro's, charlie's angel, bullets flying, chicks fighting..then you'll love this film. Pam Grier is the funky soul queen anyways, so thats worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars I've got My black belt in barstools 3 July 2007
Format:DVD
After seeing Jackie Brown a couple of weeks ago and loving it, I decided to see the other films Pam Grier had done in the past. `Foxy Brown' is the second blaxploitation classic that I saw of her (first being White Mama, Black Mama), and it just blew me away. Though the script is flawed, and has some unrealistic characters, this only adds to the fun, campy nature of the film. The opening sequence rivals those of the James Bond films.

`Foxy Brown' features a brilliant lead performance from the hypnotically attractive Pam Grier, whose federal agent boyfriend is gunned down, and who sets out to fight for revenge and justice where the System has failed her and at the same time is matched at every turn by Antonio 'Huggy Bear' Fargas as her no-good younger brother. The rest of the performances are variable, and the budgets of these things did tend to preclude brilliant method actors! Jack Hill's direction keeps things ticking over nicely and the screenplay swings wildly between shock-horror tactics, tongue-in-cheek theatricality and even the occasional stab at gut-level farce.

In short, it's all very entertaining stuff. Fans of `The Hills Have Eyes' will be interested to see a small supporting role for Russ Grieve (Bob Carter in the aforementioned Wes Craven classic) as a corrupt high-up with a naked redhead on his knee, and Bob Minor turns in a sympathetic performance as the Black Panthers-styled vigilante that is light years away from his banal turn in `Carnel Madness' as the stereotypical sex-crazed vaudeville black. The funky score is another bonus that doesn't hurt a bit.

Foxy Brown is a definite must-see. The camera is certainly in love with her. Definitely one of the best, and most enjoyable blaxploitation films I've seen thus far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Blu Ray package 14 July 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Foxy Brown is an outstanding blu ray from Arrow. The movie is a classic from Jack Hill and it is lovingly restored for this release. What really stands out are the extras produced by High Rising Productions! The interviews are informative and very entertaining and the trailer reel is like icing on the cake.

5 star package - Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Foxy lady ! 7 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There's a lot of debate as to which is the better Pam Grier movie - Coffy or Foxy Brown? Personally i'd say Coffy is the better film, the pacing,acting and story are slightly stronger and it is also slightly less hokey than Foxy Brown but hey! this is blaxplotation it's about entertainment not realism!

Actually Foxy Brown was devised to be a sequel to Coffy but the director Jack Hill changed his mind at the last minute and the script was hastily rewritten to be an original movie instead. Grier is again completely badass in this and if it wasn't for her the film wouldn't be half as good. The supporting cast are pretty decent for the most part including the legendary Antonio Fargas ( Starsky and Hutch) and Terry Carter ( Battlestar Galactica) The rest of the supporting roles are filled by some dodgy actors but it all adds to the fun. The title sequence to the movie alone is worth the purchase and comes off as a blaxplotation riff on the james bond titles!

A final mention must go to Willie Hutch's excellent score, check out the CD as it's one of the best blaxpotation s/tracks out there
