Jack Smight is a stylish director who can be superior when he has the right script. This time around, Smight tries his best to get a movie out of a thin script but fails. It's another cops-and-dopers movie not unlike so many these days. Nick Berzak (Robert Carradine) and Frank Hazeltine

(Billy Dee Williams) are the cops who will go to any lengths to make a bust, using the same against-the-rules tactics that can be seen weekly on reruns of "Mod Squad" or "Starsky and Hutch." Berzak is apart from wife Teresa (Valerie Bertinelli) and jealous of her whereabouts, while Hazeltine is a

state-of-the-art womanizer. Harry Da Costa (Barry Sattels) is the villain of the piece, an upstanding and seemingly solid member of the town's hierarchy who just happens to be the kingpin of the drug trade. There are some good and funny moments between Carradine and Williams and lots of action,

mostly predictable but well shot by Smight and cinematographer Alex Phillips. NUMBER ONE WITH A BULLET is one of those movies that goes directly from five days in the theaters to five years on cable TV.
