By day, Coffy (Pam Grier) is a good natured nurse, but by night, she's on a mission, executing drug dealers big & small, vigilante-style. Why does she do it ... because her sister o.d.ed on heroin & is now nothing more than a mere vegetable who has to spend the rest of her days in a clinic (why her sister did take the drugs is never asked though).

Somewhere between saving & taking lives, Coffy seems to also have time for a relationship with Brunswick (Booker Bradshaw), a black civil rights politician who is just too smooth to not be involved in any dirty business (& he is too), and Coffy is still seeing an ex, Carter (William Elliott), an upright cop who is to honest to take any bribe money ... & is thus beaten to a (living) pulp.

Now Coffy really burns a fuse, & she burtally questions an ex-hooker (Carol Lawson) she once treated in the hospital to give her leads on King George (Robert DoQui), the king pimp in town, & his boss Vitroni (Allan Arbus), representing the organized crime behind him.

Then she lets herself be hired by King George, as a top notch callgirl, & soon catches the attention of everybody, including Vitroni, who soon wants to get to know her better, which is exactly what Coffy has wanted too, but under a different pretense ... but it turns out Vitroni has already found her out, & she tortures the name of the man behind her out of her ... but she claims it was King George, who soon has to let his life dragged behind a speeding car.

Then Coffy learns who is the man behind Vitroni ... it's her own boyfriend Brunswick of course, who shows litle hesitation in ordering her killed. But Coffy is one tough bitch, & she seduces her way out of her execution ... & she is not to eager to let Vitroni go now, either, so she soon parks a car in hjis livingroom & shoots him & all his goons dead. Then she goes after Brunswick, but Brunswick is not your average drugpusher, & he almost talks her out of shooting him ... just too bad that Coffy learns exactly at that moment that he is already sharing his bed with her successor, & thus his political career/life ends with a bang.

 

Coffy has since its release become a blaxploitation cult classic, but like so many cult classics, it doesn't really live up to its notoriety, there really is not all that much special about the film's plot, action or even about Pam Grier, & the direction of overrated Jack Hill is rather flat. This is not to say though that Coffy is essentially a bad movie, it does deliver its fair share of sex & violence, with he customary funky music-score thrown in, & then there's a wonderfully mean, ham performance by Sid Haig as the baddie's main thug, which all make this movie entertaining, if nothing special.
