When people mention blaxploitation movies, and you do not know what are they about, just check out this movie and everything will be clear. They are the source of inspiration for many directors like Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. These movies are usually set in the drug infested parts of town, and main characters are pushers and pimps that lead a hard life. This time there’s a twist with a strong female lead and an anti-drug message. These movies are so strange to watch and analyze, because they feature violence, nudity and misogyny on one hand, and on the other hand they are dealing with America’s horrible racial history and racial tensions in that liberated seventies society. Another layer is the overwhelming corruption that envelops every race and every place. And we haven’t even got to the vigilante/revenge part of the movie. Sexiest crime fighter ever, who approaches problems with a sharp mind and ready body, Coffy will dispose of her enemies using both wits and kicks.

Coffy is nurse that starts her vigilante mission after her sister dies of the drug overdose. She will mercilessly hunt down pushers, drug lords and pimps in a quest for justice. A lot of nudity, almost funny one liners and just that whole vintage vibe guarantee a great time. Speaking of those almost funny one liners, I have to mention that besides the whole blaxploitation aspect there’s a whole other “movie so bad it’s good” vibe going on at the same time. This roller coaster of a movie is also extremely rich in nudity and we will have the opportunity to check out Pam’s beautiful body almost every five minutes.
