Intended to be a sequel to their previous success Coffy, Foxy Brown re-teamed writer-director Jack Hill with Pam Grier, the woman he made a star. The film is a revenge fantasy, much like Coffy, that has Foxy Brown (Grier) getting revenge on the drug dealers who killed her government-agent boyfriend, whom Foxy's brother (Huggy Bear, a.k.a. Antonio Fargas) turned over to get out of debt. Her method get into the drug dealer's harem and destroy the empire from within, which allows Grier to get naked and kill people (but unfortunately, not at the same time). Entertaining in a low-budget sort of way, Foxy Brown has enough action and humor going for it to make it a lowbrow success. Nonetheless, one of Foxy's rampages lands her in enemy hands where she is beaten and raped it may fit the template of these kinds of stories, but the sequence also makes the exploitation factor a little too high to make the film a successful date movie, even if the bad guys get their just deserts. Grier does get to kill quite a few people (and show off the body that made her a star), but at this point in her career she still wasn't much of an actress thankfully Hill knows how to make an exploitation film, so the action scenes are pretty good, and the story is more clever than most big-budget Schwarzenegger outings. MGM has given Foxy Brown a moderate DVD transfer for a low-budget movie, but they still aren't doing the work of a better studio (say Warner or Fox) on their catalog titles. Anamorphic widescreen (1.85:1), monaural audio. Includes a commentary with Jack Hill. Trailer, keep-case.
