CODE OF SILENCE (Theatrical Release USA 1984)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Code of Silence—
an average run-of-the-mill film—has higher quality than Jason Statham’s Blitz, but there’s nothing new here. It’s defining characteristic is great acting and a better than average storyline. It’s a ‘go’ for casting with Dennis Farina, Henry Silva, and John Mahoney. Chuck Norris looks good as that one-punch-of-the-fist and never looking back man, a ‘kind of’ Steven Segal role. The movie runs as B-grade entertainment that provides a quick thrill, but nothing that’s long lasting.

Buy a 
ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. For a quick fix film, it works; but at the end of the week, audiences will be remembering movies like Lethal Weapon 4 or Die Another Day, which are better entertainment as compared to this film.
