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!

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 movie..how 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!

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!

This is a movie that you will watch over and over...the plot is good, and there is excellent acting...you will guess all through the movie - who did what and who's with whom - but you'll never get it...well hidden plots and also very informative!!! the main character makes you feel her pain like you are going through it with her....

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.

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???

I was totally 'BLOWN' away by this movie!!! No one, especially women should go without seeing this movie. No kids should watch it though. I tell you, it just goes to show you that a few minutes of pleasure, can turn into a lifetime of pain. Not just for you, but also for the ones you say you love. This "down low" subject has been dealt with excellently by Mr. Duke! It is a wake up call to anyone involved in a relationship! Kudos to the pastor and wife for being there for Mrs. Maus. Excellent acting and something to really take to you next church women and mens study groups for discussion. Too many people are dying behind this ugly secret. A good movie that I have watched and shared with my women coworkers! Love it!!!

I guarantee once you see this movie you will have a lot to talk about. It dealt with a topic that although it is sensitive it needs to be addressed.
It has a all star cast, which makes me surprised it didn't make it to more cinemas, but I guess there are two reasons. First it is a all African American cast and secondly the subject matter.

It let's you know that the DL is alive and thriving in every city in this country. We can no longer be afraid to discuss men on the down low, because by not discussing it we are setting ourselves up for a death sentence. The DL doesn't have a particular look, class or mannerism. You can't assume because a brotha is married that he's not tipping on the other side and if you suspect he's cheating don't assume its with a woman.

The sad thing is the African American community still refuses to deal with it, which is why African American women are diagnosed as HIV positive at an alarming rate. I highly recommend this movie, if for no other reason than to open the dialog and hopefully open the eyes of those who still believe it can't happen to them. This is a very good movie and a definite wake up call. The boogieman is out there and he's not easy to recognize.

Like the commercial says "Wrap it up, because the life you save my be your own."
I definitely think this is a must see movie.
