On December 5th, 2017, Kino Lorber will be releasing a Special Edition Blu-ray for 1985′s Code of Silence (read our review), directed by Andrew Davis (Under Siege, The Fugitive) and starring the one, the only, Chuck Norris (Slaughter in San Francisco).

This gritty cop flick is highly regarded as one of Norris’ best. The film’s climax is noted for its menacing crime-fighting robot, “Prowler” (hey, it was the 80’s).

Eddie Cusack (Norris) is a Chicago detective who plays by his own rules – a dangerous habit, especially when he breaks the “code of silence” to blow the lid off a deadly police cover-up. Now an outcast, he receives little help from his embittered fellow officers when he’s hurled into a blistering battle against rival drug kingpins.

Code of Silence also stars Henry Silva (Ocean’s 11), Dennis Farina (Midnight Run), Ron Dean (The Fugitive) and Molly Hagen (Navy Seals vs. Zombies).

Special Features:

  • Audio commentary by director Andrew Davis
  • Interview with screenwriter Michael Butler
  • Interview with actor Ron Dean
  • Interview with actress Molly Hagen
  • Interview with composer David Michael Frank
  • Original Theatrical Trailer

Stay tuned for pre-order information.

    I love this movie but it’s so dated, I knew it had to come out before 1988 (trailer says 1985 so I corrected the article). You can blame this guy:

    Yeah Code of Silence is one of my favorite Norris movies, but it’s definitely dated. It feels like an 80’s movie. It’s too bad that Norris has chosen to keep a really low profile and not talk about any of his past works. Kino Lorber said they tried to reach out to him for all the Norris Blu-Rays they put out, but were always turned down. I think it may be a combination of Norris being essentially retired and becoming a born again Christian family man post-Walker Texas Ranger that has led him to not talking about his past.
