    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

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

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

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    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

    This is a weirdly schizophrenic movie, one that's light on the murder mystery and heavy on the sermonizing. show more

    The sledgehammer message is clear: Best friends can help when you need a McMansion, but only God can help when your husband needs a man. 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!

    I would like to thank Mr. Bill Duke for directing and producing an eye opening movie. So many people are living with this issue daily. This movie has an all star cast that was excellent. This movie will open the eyes of not just the Black community but all communities affected by this epidemic. Men need to stop taking others lives in their hands. ***************** with AIDS does not appear sick from the outside only the inside. Wake up people!!!
