A better than usual entry in the glum Norris filmography.
Norris has all the charisma of a railroad tie...
Actually quite good for the type.
A slick, energetic movie with good performances and a lot of genuine human interest.
Mr. Norris's bid for a wider audience, and it succeeds to a considerable degree.
It's still a Chuck Norris movie, of course, but it focuses on strong characters, interesting situations, and an appealingly gritty, urban realism.
Although it's outside his wheelhouse, the script does work in Chuck's favor - it's one of the few films where he actually blends into his role.
Though it's your typical formulaic violent action picture, in the model of Dirty Harry, it has more intelligence than expected.
An engaging feature, smartly cast, while showing a little more sophistication than the genre typically receives. It's too bad Norris couldn't make a few more of these before the Cannon Films curse claimed his marquee value for good.
This was the 80s when Star Wars pushed all movies to include a robot, no matter how silly it was... if you can look past this ludicrousness, there's a solid third act
The program, however, is by no means the worst effort Norris has ever participated in and the ending, in which he single-handedly wipes out an entire brigade of bad guys, has a certain heroic charm to it.
Kickin', jabbin' Chuck Norris actioner. Stick with reruns of his TV fare.
Before Nico:Above the Law, Under Siege and the Fugitive, Andrew Davis got his start with Chuck Norris in his hey-day with Code of Silence, a Chicago gangster/cop flick with more than passing semblance to Seagal's Nico.
Chuck play honest tough cop whoes having a terrible day, dealing with a possible conspiracy in his own unit to cover up a friendly fire incident, a new rookie under pressure, and two warring mob families ready to take the fight to the streets of Chicago, and noone is talking, and Chuck is pretty much on his own as the mobsters number against him, and his fellow police officers close their ranks around him to protect one of their corrupt own.
I guess Im drawn to this is because of Andrew Davis' down to earth raw film making infused with good old action and the 80's theme. Chicago comes alive again as it had with Nico, an above average plot played out okay, this is defintley an underrated 80's classic, the unloved grandaddy of cop thrillers which should deserve appropriate recognition.
With Chuck leading the way and supported by the usual bad guy in Henry Silva (Nico Above the Law) and the well known Dennis Farina, its a good old fashioned cop thriller with better one liners, a very funny moment of two idiots trying to stick up a "cop" bar and Chuck pretty much doing what he does best.
One of Chuck Norris's better films. Fast, furious stuff which may well be implausible and formulaic, but is so well-handled you don't mind.
