3.0 out of 5 stars It's a long way...
Polit thriller that somehow lacks oomph until Dolph's gets let off the leash in the last minute but one, way, way too late. All three stars are for that moment.

Cover Up (1990) Not Rated
Region 1 (US Import) ARTISAN HOME ENTERTAINMENT

Dolph Lundgren plays Mike Anderson , an American journalist trying to peace together a story surrounding a sudden attack on the U.S. navel outpost near Tel Aviv a U.S. official (Louis Gossett, Jr) seems to be stonewalling the facts, but one thing is clear to Anderson - he`s in extreme danger.

The stars of "The Punisher," Dolph Lundgren and Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr join forces again, plunging into the world of international terrorism in this volatile but entertaining thriller. The picture is a bit grainy but acceptable, the Stereo Surround is very clear. The biggest surprise was that even though on the disc and packaging both state that this movie is not widescreen but can be watched in Anamorphic Widescreen if your dvd player is set to (16:9) but not the UK dvds.

Running Time: 88 mins
Aspect Ratio: (16:9) 1.85:1 Widescreen Enhanced For Widescreen tvs
Extras: None
Audio: 2.0 Dolby Stereo Surround (English Only)
Subtitles: None

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, 19 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cover Up [DVD] (DVD)
Action and suspense flies all over in this movie that keeps you guessing from start to finish, Very different to a lot of others and I must admit I wasn't disappointed. Two wonderful actors that keep this on the edge of the seat entertainment and making you wonder what the hell is going on. Now to say more will be nasty as to take out the gift of the story. Now I'm leaving that to you. The story is fabulous with a few curves thrown in as well with plenty of excitement what else do you want. Now it's time for the snacks and relaxing part of the evening for full on entertainment that is very enjoyable to watch. I rated this an a grade plus for a classic that's rewarding in it's own era. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly 'serious' drama from big Dolph........, 11 Oct 2012

I'm a big fan of Dolph Lundgren's, I think he is an actor of far greater ability than many realise, and to simply write him off as a muscle bound automaton is a big maistake.

Yes he has made his fair share of stinkers (but then again how many actors haven't?), but amongst them there have been some highly entertaining films, some of my favourite examples are:

Command Performance [DVD]

Dark Angel [DVD]

Red Scorpion [DVD]

Army Of One (aka Joshua Tree)

This production from 1991, 'Cover Up', is more of a drama than an action film and gives Dolph a fine opportunity to stretch himself in a more serious role.

In the film Dolph plays Mike Anderson, an American reporter and US Marine veteran, who discovers a political cover-up over a Middle Eastern terrorist plan whilst investigating a bombing at a U.S. Military installation in Israel. The aforementioned fictional terrorist group in the film is called Black October, this is in reference to the Black September Organisation (the group responsible for the infamous attack on the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich), and the film paints a surprisingly realistic picture of politics involved in such a situation.

Lou Gossett Jr. co-stars as a CIA operative and the scenes he has with the lead are generally the best in the film.

The film does have occassional action, there is a particularly memorable fight scene in a hotel bathroom, but first and foremost it is a drama and I really liked the fact that the writer/director didn't feel the urge to turn it into more of the typical action vehicle for its star.

If ones expectations are realistically set and one is prepared to accept the action star in this more serious type of role, then this is a enjoyable film that is certainly worth picking up at the bargain price it is available for on Amazon.

The film has an 18 rating (this is possibly because of a sex scene, because the action or language certainly doesn't warrant it!), and has a total running time of 87 minutes.

The discs only extra is a trailer for the feature, the sound is only presented in stereo but the picture quality is quite good.

Overall a pretty good outing for big Dolph, in fact I would go so far as to say I think it may actually be one of his better outings.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's no ordinary reporter........, 13 Jan 2002

This review is from: Cover Up [DVD] (DVD)
Dolph a is Newspaper reporter looking into what everybody thought was a routine rebel attack on a US military base in the middle East.
But Dolph wasn't always a reporter....He used to be a top marine until something happened in his life to change all that and Dolph smells a rat...
Don't be fooled into thinking this is just another B movie as there seems to be plenty of money thrown into this movie and it's all on screen too
A who dunnit plot involving a highly toxic gas and an extreme group ready to use it.
Support actor Louis Gossit Jr gives his usual performance as..himself, Which is great because when he does share the screen with dolph, they work well together bouncing insults to eachother.
The violence can be a little graffic at times which brings home the reality of violence.
A great film and worth watching a few times.
