Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Nurse Pam Grier masquerades as a junkie to infiltrate a drug cartel and take revenge on the mob who turned her little sister into a catatonic addict. Jack Hill's extremely violent, blaxploitation classic made the halter-topped, Capri-panted Grier, in her first leading role, queen of the genre, while plenty of nudity and nasty blood-letting keep the high-energy action bubbling along. Thanks to strong roles like this, and awesome acting smarts to match them, Grier became a cult star. Two decades later, Quentin Tarantino would give her a new lease of life in Jackie Brown.
