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

Quotes

Cragie: Take a shot, kid! Little nerve killing.
Nick Kopalas: Look, I'm not nervous, all right, Cragie? I just gotta take a leak.
Cragie: You gotta take a leak, do it now.
Nick Kopalas: On some poor bastard's grave?
Cragie: Who cares? If someone was smart, they'd rip out all these graves and plant tomatoes. These people are no good. They're dead!

Chuck Norris is the man
21 February 2010 | by sveknuSee all my reviews

One of Chuck Norris' best movies, this is. It's a role that is absolutely perfect for him. He's a rock solid, super tough, good to the bone police detective who isn't afraid to resolve the situations all on his own if nobody will help him. I tell you, the last scene is so hardcore Chuck Norris action that you'll love it if you like action. There's just something great about one guy annihilating lots of scumbags on his own. Especially when it's either Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone doing it. It's Chicago in the 80's, a great backdrop for this kind of movie. Superb action and the man himself make this a must watch for action afficionados.
