Victor Comacho is the only survivor of the Comacho gang and his older brother, Luis, who is the leader of the gang, retaliates by killing Luna’s family and kidnaps Luna’s daughter, Diana. Cusack must face Tony Luna and Luis Comacho alone because nobody on the police force is willing to help him since he was the only cop who broke the code of silence by testifying against a fellow cop who killed an unarmed teenager, but Cusack is not really alone. A police robot called “Prowler” aides Cusack as he takes down the gangs.
Plot: A Chicago cop is caught in the middle of a gang war while his own comrades shun him because he wants to take an irresponsible cop down.

Leave it to Norris. He’ll do it by the badge, and on his lonesome too.
As I sat down, I wasn’t expecting much even with the constant praise I read about this particular Norris effort. So to my surprise, I usually can’t help but grin, or chuckle whenever watching one his films (humorous or not), but “Code of Silence” altered that perception. Well just say up until that waterlogged, lonesome gung-ho final curtain call into heroic pulp territory. Now then I couldn’t help but raise a smirk, and go along with the fantasy. What really pushes this one along; is that it’s professionally directed with balls and vigorous energy by Andrew Davis. The well-plotted material keeps you involved, while even following the standard textbook cop drama elements. The honest script has some cringe moments, but never becomes brainless. Just look at the witty humour and turmoil drama (a real concentration on loyalty from the cops to the criminals) that’s thrown in, it fits along with everything that opens up in the meaty plot.
So it begs the question. How was our star? Norris’s competently does a fine job. His easy-going nature, brought to the screen a comfortable performance, even when he wasn’t kicking ass. And we know how good he’s at the latter, but his acting turn here had a rather genuine feel to his character. Even though he’s one man antics cross the line. He doesn’t need a partner. Hell, just sack the entire police force as you can see by the results. Norris is capable enough. He got game. Henry Silva’s stoically vicious drug lord villain, was a sturdy show-in and Molly Hagan admirably delivers. Ralph Foody amuses as a burnt-out cop.
Nothing about this project is award winning material, but assured catering in nearly every field makes it better than just your average cop drama. A confidently good-looking production, is filled with well-placed set-pieces and sweaty stunk work infused by its snappy pace and an uncannily, upbeat music score. The urban setting is put to great-use and fashionably-captured shots.
Quite an exciting and always on the move action yarn, which has a little more thought behind it than you might think.
One o the best of the Chuck Norris films
1985 was perhaps the peak year for action star Chuck Norris, with three big hits released. This was the second one out, and it’s arguably one of the best made of his career. It still manages to make enough mistakes to limit its appeal, though. Chuck stars as a Chicago cop caught in the middle of a bloody drug war between the Italian mafia and Colombian drug lords. He’s also having trouble at work, where a burn-out veteran detective involved in a bad shooting incident asks Chuck for support, which he denies, and most of the force turns against him because of it. Co-starring Henry Silva as the head Colombian, Bert Remsen as the police captain, Molly Hagan as a mobster’s daughter, John Mahoney, and Dennis Farina in his largest role to date. He was still on the job as a real Chicago policeman at the time, but he would turn to acting full-time the following year, with a major role in Manhunter and the lead in the TV series Crime Story.
The mood is much grittier than in most Norris films, and the Chicago location shooting adds a lot of atmosphere. Much of the story is more than a little cliched, though, and the finale takes things into 80’s action film absurdity. Several of the earlier action scenes are well mounted, a trademark for director Andrew Davis (Under Siege, The Fugitive).
