This 1982 movie was remade about twenty-seven years later with 2009's Indestructible (2009). The killer character in Silent Rage (1982), John Kirby (Brian Libby), has often described as being "indestructible". See more »

Yes, I know that Chuck Norris is predictable. He hardly ever says
anything and he just kicks butt. We that is true for this movie also,
but there are some extras that make this an unusual movie for Norris.
First, Sheriff Chuck has a girlfriend, Toni Kalem, and they spend as
much time as possible in bed giving us a great view of her ample chest.
Now, that is not typical Norris behavior! When Norris visits a biker
bar, we get to see some of his typical style as he cleans the place
out. You knew that was going to happen, but, before he does, his
Deputy, Stephen "Flounder" Furst (Animal House) gets an eyeful from one
of the biker chicks, Lillette Zoe Raley, in her only movie. What a
shame! We also see some action from the other biker mommas (Linda Tatum
and Kathleen Lee) before Norris arrives. I've never seen so much action
in a Norris film.
All of this is just titillation as the real story is the mad scientist
and his partner (Steven Keats and William Finley) develop a serum that
resuscitates a dead man and causes his wounds to heal immediately,
Bullets, falls from second stories, cars, fire - nothing stops this
guy. Well, you know who will eventually stop him, or does he? This is
the only film in which I have seen Ron Silver in a humane role. He was
the third doctor who tried to stop his boss. I actually was starting to
like him, but, fortunately, he gets killed off before that happens.
That was close! If you want Norris action with a little sci-fi
craziness, then this is the flick.
