5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See March 23, 2008
By Marcel
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got a chance to see this movie over a month ago at the AMC 25 on 42nd street in Times Square here in New York City. All I will say is this movie was mind-blowing and EXTREMELY timely. This movie is a perfect starting point for a much needed dialogue regarding a brooding DL issue. If you want to know more then buy the DVD in May; I promise it's worth it. This movie is definitely well acted, suspenseful, intense, filled with recognizable and acclaimed actors and poignant. Bill Duke (the director) did a great job. There were some editing clumsiness that got on my nerves at times, but the story and the acting made up for it. Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars It does tell a story January 31, 2009
I recently bought this about a month a ago, and my husband and I decided to watch it together...I was not really sure about what the movie was going to depict. But overall it is a good movie, nothing I would see with the kids. But it does have several messages within the we as Christians, should love one another and should weclome everyone one regardless of what or where they are coming from...if you allow God in, he will change you from the inside and outside...well we see in this movie how some of the church women act ugly to one character, it shows that even though we call our selves Christians..look in the mirror before you start talking, we all came from somewhere.
It also shows how things in the dark will come to light eventually, and how the choices we may can either make us or break us.
While the movie deals with real issues, you must watch it and pay close attention....and leave the judging up to GOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Film March 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is a murder mystery with a surprise element. I won't give it away. In fact when you get your copy of this dvd, don't even read the liner notes. Just watch it. Bill Duke handles the subject matter brilliantly. I was absolutely blown away by this film and I already knew what it was about including the surprise twist. I was riveted to my screen for the duration of the film. I believe that this movie had a different title during its filming. I remember hearing about it but not hearing about its release. I am so limited in what I can say about this film without ruining it for you so just order it now and see it for yourself. Vivica Fox, Louis Gossett, Clifton David and Leon lend their talents to this drama. I am happy to report that there is no foul language or sex in the film. However, this is not a film for children. I suggest age 18 & up. See this movie now. You can buy the dvd or have it downloaded straight to your pc. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MOVIE ALL WIVES SHOULD SEE! November 28, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really liked this movie.It is a wake up call not just for African-American women,but for all married women that suspect their husbands may be cheating.Most of the main chracters do a great job of acting,some of the supporting cast can use some lessons,though.Some scenes are over acted.Vivica Fox is great as usual.And you will be mildly shocked at the surprise ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT June 8, 2008
I figured anything with Bill Duke's name on it had to be good and I was correct. Still, I didn't know what to expect when I rented 'Cover'. But now I do-- absolutely superb! Kudo's to Bill and the rest of the cast. You've made a high quality film that informs, enlightens and breaks your heart...really a great piece of work...I'm looking forward to more.

By Bailey

Mr. Bill Duke. Thank You for making a film in which we don't have to shuck and jive or, curse and swear. This movie is a close second in my book to Love Jones. This is a very powerful movie in my period. Where is the soundtrack???

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this DVD TODAY May 16, 2008
I had heard nothing about this movie and only picked it up because the Great Debaters was out and the jacket read good. I'm sOOOO glad I decided to go ahead and get it. I HIGHLY recommend this movie. Im usually pretty good a predicting or figuring out who "do it" but this one threw me WAYYYY in the left field. When she walked in the room I totally expected to see Monica boy was I wrong. I rented it tonight but I will be purchasing it for my collection of black cinema.
