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

Chuck Norris stars as Eddie Cusack a tough cop who finds himself in the middle of an all out mob war one that finds him in the position of being the only who can protect a mafia princess(Molly Hagen) from an assassin's bullets. At the end Norris saves his martial arts and turns into a one man army with the help of a police robot. Code Of Silence interestingly predates Robocop and in the climax we see what could have very well inspired ED-209, in any case Norris' stoic demeanor actually provides the film with a hero that is quite believable and the action sequences are slick, spectacular as well as gritty. 1985 was really Norris' year since Missing In Action 2, Invasion USA and this were all very enjoyable. Indeed his streak would extend until the awful Firewalker. Code Of Silence has aged somewhat but for a better than usual policer, few can top Code Of Silence.
