Time to get on down with "Foxy Brown"
on 1 May 2015
When her boyfriend is murdered Foxy Brown goes undercover as an escort to get her revenge on those responsible.
Maybe the best of the 70's female blacksploitation pictures. Pam Grier is brilliant in the lead and really goes for it giving the role her all. The vigilante plot isn't all that original but highly entertaining none the less, something is always happening so pacing is actually really good and its 88mins passes quickly enough. Supporting roles are pretty much stick figures, for instance what happened to Claudia, however the boyfriend & brother have a better character arc, all do a very decent job and are easy to watch, the Willie Hutch soundtrack is excellent and really adds the over the top and fun atmosphere, there is also a brilliantly funny scene with the judge in a hotel room. The one issue with the film was the groping scene, when Foxy is tied up with the two sleazeballs at the farm, it just goes on a little too long and a bit uncomfortable in what is a "fun" vigilante picture.
Definitely one of the best of Pam Grier's blacksploitation films, a sassy, fun, enjoyable film that will have the audience cheering on our heroine, except the authorities here in Britain that is, when in the 80's they thought it should taken from the shelves as a section 3 nasty, ah the good old days!
