Synopsis by Mark Deming
Blaxploitation icon Fred Williamson produced, directed, and stars in this action thriller as Dakota Smith, a hard-nosed but scrupulously honest cop who has more than a few questions when his partner is murdered. As Smith sets out to find who killed his sidekick and bring him to justice, he discovers a trail of dirty dealings that leads from the lowest rungs of the police force to the highest pillars of city government -- and Dakota isn't about to rest until law and order once again prevails. Also starring in Down 'n Dirty are Bubba Smith, Gary Busey, David Carradine, Beverly Johnson, and Charles Napier.
