"Eddie Cusack is a Chicago police officer about to bust some members of the Comacho gang when the gang is shot up by a rival drug gang from the neighboring building, led by Tony Luna. Victor Comacho is the only survivor of the Comacho gang and his older brother, Luis, who is the leader of the gang, retaliates by killing Luna's family and kidnaps Luna's daughter, Diana. Cusack must face Tony Luna and Luis Comacho alone because nobody on the police force is willing to help him since he was the only cop who broke the code of silence by testifying against a fellow cop who killed an unarmed teenager" (IMDb)
This was a highly entertaining action movie directed by action movie veteran Andrew Davis (The Fugitive etc.) Chuck Norris is once again fantastic and the co-stars include Henry Silva, Bert Remsen, Mike Genovese, Dennis Farina and Molly Hagan (Some Kind of Wonderful, Fresh Horses) in her first feature film.

Already during the opening credits, you know that this movie is going to rock. You can enjoy the awesome Chicago City scenes and cool score composed by David Michael Frank.

The action scenes are great and i loved the small talk between the cops. I also enjoyed the funny bar scene featuring two crooks and a bar crowded with policemen.
Good plot, nice locations, Rubik's Cube and a crime-fighting robot named "Prowler". Recommended!
Check out the Forced Vengeance thread. I watched three Norris flicks this week and those were all great but Forced Vengeance was the best of the bunch.

Whatever happened to director Andrew Davis? Great action films, "Code of Silence," "The Package," and then "The Fugitive" and then no real career...
