AverageBro Goes To The Movies: Cover

[With a toddler, I don't get to go to the movies at all nowadays. Pre-AverageBaby, I didn't miss an opening weekend. Thankfully this movie went straight-to-DVD, sparing me the indignity of blowing $40 or hanging out in the barbershop for a free view.]

I caught a pretty decent "urban" drama called Cover over the weekend. I'd usually use this forum to tell ya'll about the movie, and why it was so good, but any review would be loaded with spoilers, so I'll just let you peep the trailer and judge for yourself.

Straight-to-DVD movies are usually crappy, but don't let the telltale signs of a bad flick (Exhibit A: Vivica Fox. Exhibit B: Paula Jai Parker.) throw you off.

This is a great "urban" drama/mystery thriller that I'd recommend all of you add to your Netflix queue. And since I don't want any member of AverageNation™ inadvertently giving away the plot, I'm gonna close the comments.

Just take my word and rent the movie. You'll enjoy it.

Final Verdict: It's very possible that I'm giving this movie more credit than it deserves because I expected it to be terrible and was surprised that it didn't. But all things considered, I think you'll find this movie compelling enough to justify the cost of the rental. 3 Stars (Out of 5)
