Product Description

Product Description

She's the ultimate tough and sexy heroine. She's Soul Cinema superstar Pam Grier and whether delivering her justice with a shotgun a razor or just her bare hands she doesn't miss a beat in this "smashing no-holds-barred tale of retaliation" (Variety)! Nobody ever commandeered the screen quite like Pam Grier...and Coffy "couldn t be better! [It's] one of the most entertaining movies ever made"(Quentin Tarantino)!Grier is Coffy 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 the very top. But what Coffy doesn't realize is that all is not as it seems and that the leafy green behind the pushers' scene just may come from someone she knows!System Requirements:Running Time: 90 Min.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: ACTION/ADVENTURE Rating: R UPC: 027616857835 Manufacturer No: 1001463

In the opening minutes of Coffy, Pam Grier's star-making role, she blasts the skull of a sleazy drug pusher into pulp like a watermelon and shoots his junkie assistant with an overdose of heroin. Jack Hill knows how to open a movie, and he never lets up on the down-and-dirty action. Coffy is an emergency room nurse by day and vigilante by night, targeting the dealers who made her sister a comatose junkie. She works her way up to the Italian mobsters muscling into the ghetto drug trade while she's romanced by glib, smooth-talking politician Booker Bradshaw and wooed by nice-guy cop William Elliot, whose refusal to sell out to the corrupt force earns him a crippling beating.

There's plenty of sex, a catty girl-fight that leaves the losers topless, and car chases and shootouts galore, but what makes Coffy a blaxploitation classic is Grier's Amazonian presence and fiery charisma, and the gritty, low-budget action scenes marked by visceral, wincing violence. Mob strong-arm Sid Haig (Spider Baby) cackles while dragging his victim (a strutting peacock pimp played by Nashville's Robert DoQui) behind a speeding car in a sadistic lynching, and Grier runs down one bad guy with a speeding car and takes care of another with a shotgun to the groin. Hill had previously directed Grier in The Big Doll House and The Big Bird Cage. Their next and last picture together, Foxy Brown, was originally written as the sequel to Coffy. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

This was a pretty enjoyable movie, but I have to admit that I enjoyed Foxy Brown just a little more. This movie is basically about Pam Griers' character getting revenge on those who have hurt her and her family. She starts out with lower level pimps and pushers, and workers her way up the power structure to the head sleezebags. The one thing that didn't really sit well with me was the way she portrayed the moments of remorse her character felt about what she was doing. I am not saying that a person who becomes a vigilante wouldn't have these feelings, but I just didn't really buy it coming from her. I know, I know, maybe I am delving too deep into the character, but if they're going to go there...anyway, it didn't make me enjoy the movie any less. And it's always nice to see as much eye candy as there was in this movie. Pam Grier is really hot and made most of the other women in this movie look kinda dumpy. To sum it up, it's a fun movie, some minor slow points, but it kept me interested throughout. If funk with a dash of groovitude is your bag, then this movie is for you.

i finnaly agree with mistermaxxx for a change,which is rare but its not blaxsploitation.but before new jack city,before blow,before traffik,or traffic,there was coffy.coffy is a real gritty 70's black flick.coffy comes across as being verry caring AND somewhat unstable AND murderous at the same time.vengence is her goal to rid the city of all the drug pushers and gangstas in the city wich led to her sister and others in the city diying due to drugs.her cold vengence is further induced due to the fact a friend gets beaten severely who is actually a good cop that refuses to turn corrupt.coffy plot is not all that sub a matter of fact it has ALOT of relevence today.that is what actually suprised me about the film.also the soundtrack is GREAT!.the graphic violence and sex is also what i liked about the film.for the un informed the best way to describe coffy is that she's a urban black female version,of marvel comic's the punisher.but to the tenth power! and is set in the early 70's.but tha sad part is that coffy was a ordinary women at one point before turning into a somewhat unstable bloody murderous diabolical cold caculating killer vigilante.un like punisher who was actualy a soldier before turning into a crazed vigilante.

All of Pam Grier movies in the 70s, "Coffy" is the most famous. She deserves it; watch this movie, and you see what so-called blaxploitation films are all about.
The fast-paced "Coffy" starts with a dynamite opening, in which Pam's character Coffy lures her enemy into a nasty surprise, and she blows away poor fool's head with a shotgun literally. Then, her mission of eradicating drug racket goes on until a very bitter ending. There are actions, fighting, nudity, and battling girls at a party where Pam uses most unexpected weapon -- salad! Frankly they look rather bland by today's standard, but good soundtrack by Roy Ayres is still wonderful.
Probably the most interesting thing about "Coffy" is its gorgeous 70s fashion: music, clothes, and hairstyle. even if you find its story a little stale, you never get tired of watching dresses, glasses, hats, and everything -- they are so big! And surprising thing is that the film to certain extent reflects the political condition of those days (see how a black congressman address a speech about drug issues among Afro-Americans).
"Coffy" is one of the movies that set the style of the 70s. Those who are interested in that period should watch it (and the original "Shaft") once.
