Eddie Cusack is a Chicago police officer about to bust some members of the Comacho gang when the gang is shot up by a rival drug gang from the neighboring building, led by Tony Luna. 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. Written by
Chuck Norris stars as Sargent Eddie Cusack in this violent and exciting cop thriller. After robbing drug dealers work for a powerful drug lord named Luis Comacho (A scary Henry Silva) there is a war going on between two mob families and Sargent Cusack is right in the middle. The one man who steals the show here is Henry Silva who brings a memorable performance as the ruthless Louis Comacho. Silva would team up again with director Davis for yet another great action film "Above The Law" (1988-"Nico") this time starring Steven Seagal. Unlike other action films of it's time, this film, in addition to the well executed action sequences has a fairly interesting plot too. Director Andrew Davis shows a lot of talent in his early film and Chuck Norris also has a few scenes to show his amazing skill in Kung Fu. I highly recommend this film and for what it is I give it 10/10.
