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.
