  • While this actor-filmmaker has delivered such worthy films as "A Rage in Harlem" and "Deep Cover" in the past, this misbegotten effort would be instantly forgettable if not for its potential as future camp classic. show more

  • So overwrought that it quickly crosses the line into unintentionally funny and never recovers. show more

  • Featuring eyeball-rolling performances by Vivica A. Fox, Patti LaBelle, Clifton Davis and the singularly named Leon, Cover would be a candidate for the year's most unintentionally funny movie so far - if it weren't also the most homophobic. show more

    Wow! I saw this film by Bill Duke and it was fantastic. In the middle of the movie there is such a powerful twist that the viewer is left stunned.Cover is a good suspenseful movie that will keep you guessing. This is a must see movie!
