Excerpt: Directed by Andrew Davis, Code Of Silence is one of Chuck Norris’ better movies. Not only does it contain some seriously solid action set pieces and a fun supporting effort from the mighty Henry Silva, but it’s able to tell a decent story too. Chuck’s acting is no better or worse here than any of this other projects, but no matter, this is one of those B-grade action movies where everything comes together nicely.
Conclusion: I will admit that I did enjoy some of the fighting sequences and especially the fight that takes place on top of a moving elevated train that Norris apparently really did. It’s the stunts like that one that keep me watching these movies. The movie had a good concept but it didn’t execute it as well as it should have done. It’s also unfortunate that this Blu-ray doesn’t offer a better audio and visual presentation as well as some extras.
Conclusion: I'm really not the target group for a Chuck Norris movie like 'Code of Silence.' Norris never really did it for me anyway. He always seemed like too much of a parody of himself to take him seriously. 'Code of Silence' is a rehash of 'Lone Wolf McQuade' which came out a couple years earlier. The video and audio are only so-so. Norris fans will no doubt pick it up, but I'd say it's a rental at best for everyone else.
Excerpt: Eddie Cusack (Chuck Norris) is an honest, hard working police officer who tries to make justice is always served. He might be a nice guy to those who know him, but he is as tough as they come in terms of his professional life. He can handle his firearm well enough, but his main weapons are his hands and feet, which he uses to make sure the criminals don’t escape to commit more crimes.
Conclusion: "Code of Silence" works itself up into a more traditional violent tizzy in the final act, unleashing a fed-up Norris on the antagonists. The noise is expected but a touch deflating, especially when earlier sections of the movie are far more grounded in reality, remaining more compelling than a backlit Norris arming himself with a bazooka to underline Eddie's heroism.
