Very underrated "tough guy" movie.

Code of Silence (1985) starring Chuck Norris. He plays a Chicago Cop battling the mob. it was directed by Andrew Davis, who directed The Fugitive.

This was probably the closest thing to Norris doing a major studio movie back in the 80's (Orion produced it) and not one of his cheesy Cannon action movies. I recall the hope was that this was going to make Chuck a major studio star.

It's one of my favorites from his catalog, but doesn't get talked about much these days.

re: Post a "tough" guy movie.

tough "guy" movie, or "tough guy" movie?

"tough guy" movie:
Rutger Hauer as a total badass tough guy:


tough "guy" movie:
Beautiful story chronicling the tough life and times of a gay black man coming to grips with his sexuality.


tough "Guy" movie:
Maddin's most recent feature length film. A little tough to get through with its anthology-style storytelling, but wonderfully strange, and a lot of cameos!

I was wondering the same thing. Didn't think about the tough "Guy" option, though.

So many movies across so many genres. I'm a little late to the party as a Bronson fan.
