Storyline

Louisville businessman, Andy Shayne (Rudy Challenger), who owns a small financial agency which helps provide loans and credit to the under-privileged, is roughed up by a group of hired thugs, who want to send a message; sell his business to a competitor. Mr. Shayne's daughter is none other than the fabulous, Ms Pam Grier, and she's not going to let anyone hurt her father, nor his business- and that includes anyone who disses her 'just because she's a woman'. While Sheba looks for the men (and the organisation) supporting the thugs, she also finds a sinister motive behind their actions. Sheba's former flame Brick (Austin Stoker) adds some muscle to her mission Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Not that bad, people!
27 July 2002 | by DJ InfernoSee all my reviews

In comparison to classics like "Foxy Brown" or "Coffy" this one obviously looses, but the film itself is not that bad as some people claim! Okay, it maybe looks more like the episode of a 1970s TV serial than a movie for the big screen, but it has got some decent entertainment values, although the above mentioned films were more violent and sexy. Once more Pam Grier plays a revenging lady which does away with some corrupt guys who killed her father. This amazing main actress it definitely the coolest Afro American actress on our planet and it´s a shame that she´s nowadays wasted in quite meaningless stuff like John Carpenter´s "Ghosts of Mars"! Another memorable part is given by Austin Stroker, a forgotten 1970s actor, who was great in films like "Assault on Precinct 13" (Made in the times when Carpenter still shot good movies...) or "Battle for the Planet of the Apes". Better watch "Foxy Brown" or "Coffy" first to see some real Pam Grier Blaxploitation classics, but you can easily check out "Sheba, Baby" without that feeling to have your time wasted!
