Tom Sharky is demoted to vice after a bust goes terribly wrong. He and his team stumble across a mob murder tied to prostitution and government.
In both of two of the Dirty Harry (1971)-style movies made during the early-mid 1980s, Sharky's Machine (1981), set in Atlanta starring Burt Reynolds, and Code of Silence (1985), set in Chicago and starring Chuck Norris, the arch-villain in both of these pictures was portrayed by actor Henry Silva.
Do you think I will live... or die?
Sharky: Ah, you'll die all right!
Billy Score: No, I don't think so. No, not by you!
Watch the locomotives pulling the train in the open scenes. Sometimes they're F.E.C. (Florida East Coast R.R.) locomotives and at other times they're Family Lines/Seaboard Coast Line/CSX. These are two separate rail lines to Miami that run parallel to each other but are a few miles apart. Much of the opening scene footage, however, seems to have been shot along the CSX (ex-Family Lines, ex-Seaboard Coast Line, ex-Seaboard Air Line) track.
