When Foxy Brown's undercover-agent boyfriend is gunned down on the orders of evil drug kingpins, she stops at nothing to exact a thrillingly brutal revenge. This is one of the all-time great blaxploitation films, pulling out all the stops at a time long before anyone thought of inventing political correctness.

Pam Grier was given the role of a lifetime as the street-smart yet intensely sexy Foxy, modelling a stupendously varied range of Seventies threads while righteously kicking villainous white butt at every opportunity. She's also given sterling support from Antonio ‘Huggy Bear' Fargas as her no-good younger brother and a memorably funky soundtrack.

It's clear that Quentin Tarantino is a huge fan: he cast Grier in the title role of his direct homage Jackie Brown, while the one-woman revenge scenario that fuelled the Kill Bill films didn't just come from the Far East.

I'm not feeling this sudden influx of pre-80's films in steelbook format. Cash-cow anyone?!

Still, nice looking steel that I'll probably end up buying because its... white.

I'm easily persuaded :)

I don't think so. If they were releasing titles purely for profit, I think these types of films wouldn't get a look in.

Lazy effort + never heard of the film = easy pass !

The film is worth seeing, as replicant81 said, the film and sub genre is a huge influence on Quentin Tarantino.

Not enough white Steelbooks, assuming this will be white and not a nasty grey colour. I'm tempted myself but the price is just too high :(

Any reviews of people that's got the film/blu?
I use to like Willie Hutch who did the soundtrack for a few blaxploitation film, The Mack was an other.
