Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This decidedly odd blend of genres seldom lacks the ambition to rise above programmer level. However, it is still quite entertaining and, if taken on its own level, Silent Rage is actually one of the best Chuck Norris vehicles. The script wisely plays to Norris' limitations as an actor, giving him a character built to fit his stoic persona and offering up enough subplots to ensure Norris doesn't have to carry the entire film on his shoulders. As a result, he delivers a relaxed and surprisingly funny performance that is one of his all-time best. Silent Rage also brings in some solid actors to back up Norris: the best is Ron Silver, who delivers an amusing, slyly funny performance as the psychologist caught between Norris and his mad-scientist nemesis. The one real problem with Silent Rage is that it loses some steam in the second half when it should be picking up, mainly due to a few extended stalking sequences that go on a bit too long. However, director Michael Miller takes a very stylish approach the material (note the impressive Steadicam shot that opens the movie) and choreographs the film's fights with bone-crunching precision. In short, Silent Rage is a minor effort but worth the time for Norris fans and genre aficionados on the lookout for something memorably offbeat.
