An awesome action, chick-flick with sweet soul/funk music
After watching this film, I love it, it is an awesome action, chick-flick with sweet soul/funk music. Now I know what you are thinking: when I said "chick-flick," well I meant that chick-flicks aren't just about romance, comedies or films about girlfriends. They are about women, and the love and tragedies they go through; also about the bad-a** women like our Foxy Brown.
Well anyway, this film starts with a street hustler named Link Brown, cringing in a bar full of police officers, he's trying to wait out a bunch of thugs who want to beat him for holding out on a loan from losses incurred from street gambling schemes. In desperation he calls his tough sister Foxy to bail him out yet again. Foxy runs some of the thugs into the river in her car. Afterwards, Link pleads to her that he'll live the straight life if he can hide out at her pad for a while. Foxy reluctantly agrees.
Later, Foxy goes to visit her boyfriend in hospital. He name is Dalton Ford, an undercover officer who has been investigating the same crime-ring that Link owed money to. The hoodlums thought they'd killed him, but he really ended up in hospital for plastic surgery to give him a new and safe identity. Emerging as handsome Michael Anderson, he and Foxy hope to start life anew. On the streets, they encounter a black gang who beat and run drug pushers out of town. Foxy introduces Michael to the freeloading Link, and Link acts suspicious. Links leaves Michael and Foxy to themselves, but later looks at some newspaper cuttings and adds two and two together. There is an enormous debt to pay ... and this kind of information could clear that debt. No sooner does Foxy think her life will be smooth, than Michael crashes through her door, breathing his last and shot to death. With some detective work, the grieving and raging Foxy soon tracks Link down at his white girlfriend's, and as they snort coke she storms in on them. Livid with anger, Foxy won't kill her own brother, but she does force the identity of Michael's killers out of him, then force him to leave the city. And so Foxy is out for vengeance.
So that is all I am tellin' you folks, you will have to see the film for yourself, and see how it ends. I also recommend it for fans of soul/funk music (the music and songs by Willie Hutch), seventies cinema or blaxploitation cinema. Of course I would say "Soul Cinema" because the term "blaxploitation" sounds kind of offensive to me, I mean come on! Barrack Obama is the new President of the US, and he is a black man...what would he and others like him think?
