Pretty much fed up with her drug dealing & gambling brother Link (Antonio Fargas), Foxy Brown (Pam Grier) nevertheless helps him out of a squeeze when he is about to be beaten up by Eddie (Tony Giorgio) & Bunyon (Fred Lerner), henchmen of Katherine Wall (Katheryn Loder) & Steve Elias (Peter Brown), big time drug runners whom Ling owes 20.000 Dollars.

However, how does her bro thank her the effort - by betraying her boyfriend Michael (Terry Carter), an undercover cop, to Katherine & Steve ... who promptly have him killed.

Enraged, Foxy realizes she has to take law into her own hands, & first beats the relevant information about Katherine's organisation out of Link, then joins the organisation undercover, as a high class prostitute. But when she, always the good Samaritan, helps fellow ho' Claudia (Juanita Brown) & sets up a corrupt judge (Harry Holcombe), she falls from grace with Katherine, & soon her real identity is found out, & She is brutally tortured & then sent to the ranch - which is where Katherine has her heroin produced, & there Foxy is to be heavily drugged & repeatedly raped.

But Foxy, a woman of many resources, despite being tied to a bed soon finds a way out of the jam she's in, & furthermore manages to blow up the ranch, too.

Then she goes after the big fish, &, with the help of some local vigilantes, she gets in on a big drug deal Steve is personally involved in, & while her vigilantes pretty much blow away all of Steve's henchies, she gets hold of Steve himself & castrates him ...

Then it's off to Big Bad Katherine herself, & Foxy decides to directly enter the lion's den, seemingly unarmed, & present Katherine - & Eddie & Bunyon - with Steve's best bits in a pickles jar. When Eddie & Bunyon are trying to get her though, she pulls a miniature gun out of her Afro (!) & shoots them both. Katherine she lets live, a broken woman ...

 

For some reasons, Foxy Brown has gained some notoriety as a classic or a landmark film of the blaxploitation genre.

Despite some fine moments though, the movie is not all that outstanding, rather a rough edged action movie (that happens to have a black heroine) with many seedy, trashy & exploitative elements, & an emphasis on Afros & garishly coloured 70's fashion. Having said that, it is an entertaining little film exactly for those reasons, if definitely nothing special.

Willie Hutch's music & songs, courtesy of Motown Records, are impeccable though.
