Does anybody have either or both of these David Michael Frank scores? I've never seen the films (though I want to), but I'm curious if they're anything like his great scores for ABOVE THE LAW and HARD TO KILL.

I have 'HERO AND THE TERROR' on CD and had 'CODE OF SILENCE' on LP.
The first is a mixed bag, the 4 or 5 Jazz/Fusion tracks are good, the rest is suspense music and isn't that good.
'CODE OF SILENCE' was the same Jazz/Fusion style of 'ABOVE THE LAW' and 'HARD TO KILL', only much better. A real shame this never saw a CD release.

NP- Code of Silence - David Michael Frank

I sure wish you fellas at La La Land would give this record a listen. The funky mix of jazz and electronics knocks me out every time I've put it on. Action filled & relentlessly creative scoring, an '80's classic!

I emailed Frank a few years ago, and if I remember correctly he said the masters for Code of Silence are missing. frown

However, would it be possible (barring legalities, of course) to reissue the LP program on CD? It'd be better than nothing.

Code of Silence is the better score AND film of the two...not that Hero is bad, just not as funky!
Also, don't forget Frank's OUT FOR JUSTICE and SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO...both cut from the same, great 80's musical cloth as Code of Silence.

By the way, Code of Silence is Chuck's best film in my opinion(Delta Force being a close second/equal!!)

First time seeing "Code of Silence" tonight.
2nd feature for Dennis Farina who just passed - which is why I put it on my Netflix cue.

Too bad so much of the score was dialed down, but yep, very decent action flic!

The score to Code of Silence is awesome, one of my biggest wishes for a release. Please La-La Land Records or Intrada, make it happen!

I liked the score quite a bit. I'd buy it if someone put it out.
