Pam Grier is a well known sexy action star of the 70’s, and while Coffy wasn’t her first role it is probably the one she’s best known for. If a movie is going to be your big hit you could do much worse than having it be Coffy, this movie has everything a great 70’s flick needs. It’s got drugs, pimps, nudity, Pam walking around shooting people with a shotgun, it’s a brilliant mix. Coffy is a nurse whose younger sister gets involved in drugs on top of that a friend of hers is one of the good cops in the city, he gets brutally beaten because he won’t go on the take. Finally Coffy is fed up and decides to take matters into her own hands. One by one hunting down the dope pushers responsible and taking them out. It’s a goddamn brilliant revenge movie, this is required viewing for anyone that likes 70’s action movies. As you may expect it’s got a pretty fucking awesome soundtrack too.
