I just watched Cover Up. Dolph looks great in this film. Too bad it is horrible. Too bad Dolph doesn't look good anymore.

Cover Up is so boring. Shame on Dolph.

Sure "Cover Up" is not perfect and could be a lot better (problems with the plot and characters) but it's a Dolph movie that I like very much, and especially the last 10 minutes, the music, and the tone of it. It was Dolph's first attempt to do something else than action (it must be the only movie where he doesn't hold a gun once, except from Rocky IV) and tries to show he had as much brain as he has brawn.

Cover-up contained a few twists in the storyline, which gave it some thrill.

It was OK/Good. Some parts I like, like the last scene from the start of where Dolph makes his way through the crowd to the end where he ends on the floor.

There was no thrills in Cover Up. At least Dolph was in shape in this movie though.

Thousands Crowd Jerusalem's Old City
Author: Compiled From News Services










Article Text:

JERUSALEM - Under heavy security, Christian pilgrims from around the world carried and drug wooden crosses through Jerusalem's Old City on Good Friday to commemorate the passion and death of Jesus Christ.

The traditional procession along the Via Dolorosa, or Way of Sorrow, was jammed with people praying and singing. The narrow street echoed with chants in Greek, English, Spanish, Italian and Arabic.

Security was heavier than usual because of riots in the Christian quarter of the city on Thursday.

On Thursday, Israeli police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to break up demonstrations by Christians, led by Greek Orthodox clerics, and stone-throwing Palestinian youths protesting the establishment of a Jewish settlement in the Christian quarter. A court ruling late Thursday ordered the settlers out - although they were allowed to stay based on their appeal to another court - and appeared to cool tempers among the protesters.

On Friday, scores of police officers and paramilitary border soldiers armed with assault rifles and tear-gas grenades patrolled the Old City. No major incidents were reported.

And yet, pilgrims who walked to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the basilica that covers the traditional spot of Christ's Crucifixion, burial and Resurrection, were reminded of the Holy Land's political problems. A Palestinian flag - outlawed by Israel - flew throughout Good Friday from the cross atop the venerated church.

For Christians, Good Friday is the most solemn of days in the church calendar and the preface to one of the most joyful, Easter.

Lidwien van Dongen, 27, of Denhaag, the Netherlands, said she was ''very impressed that people from all over the world come to Jerusalem to walk the way Jesus walked.''

Mervat Azer, a travel agent from Jersey City, N.J., said she had not been able to anticipate the beauty of Jerusalem or the feelings she would experience praying there. ''We are praying near the place where Christ was buried,'' she said.

At one point, a man whose clothes were splattered with blood and mud ran through the crowd. He was Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren, who was being filmed by an American crew for the movie ''Cover Up,'' about a journalist in Israel.

The script called for Lundgren to fall to one knee, get up and keep running. But an Israeli plainclothes officer, thinking Lundgren was in trouble, rushed to his assistance. The scene was reshot.

The city was especially crowded because both the Eastern Orthodox churches and the Western churches are celebrating Easter at the same time. Israeli officials estimated that 45,000 foreigners would visit Jerusalem during Holy Week.

COVER UP in widescreen!

The german DVD version of COVER UP has just been released and features the film in widescreen 16/9 1.85 aspect ratio. This is the only widescreen version available.

Just beware of the editions released: one rated FSK 16 is only 76 minutes long,

the other edition, rated FSK 18 is uncut;

they have two different cover.

Some German specs have this as a letterbox 4:3 transfer! At least it's in it OAR, and I believe it has an English/German DD 2.0 Surround audio track.

Was looking at it on the weekend to see if it had on extras, but decided to wait until some reviews hit the net with some reliable specs :cry:.
