Storyline

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 Anonymous

Direction Brings Out the Best in Chuck Norris
2 October 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

During the 1980's, Chuck Norris was a big star who starred in many sub par action flicks. Code of Silence(1985) is one of the raw exceptions where the action and story blends together. Code of Silence's story seems to take its roots from the Italian police thrillers of the 1970's. The locales of Chicago are beautifully shown.

Code of Silence(1985) along with Aliens(1986) contained some of the most slam bang action sequences during that period. There are two remarkable scenes that define the movie. First, the fight on top of the elavated subway. Second, the climax where Chuck takes on an entire group of villains on his own.

The sub plot involving a corrupt cop who covers up an accidential shooting adds some realism to the film. The title refers to the code that policemen uphold among themselves. Code of Silence(1985) deals with police corruption in a frank and honest many that many action specialist in the 1990's would be afraid to tackle. This is the only Police thriller I've seen where no one helps the main hero.

The director, Andrew Davis has created characters who always fight against corruption...E.G., Above the Law(Nico), The Package(Agent), Under Siege(Casey), and The Fugitive(Richard). Henry Silva is fantastic as the cool and cold blooded Luis Comacho. Dennis Farina is his usual sarcastic self in the role of a policeman named Dorato. The funniest scene is when two people attempt to rob a bar that's full of Police officers.
