I haven't seen this movie for quite a few years, but I became a huge fan of Laurence Fishburne because of it. I remembered loving the dialogue of the film and the intrinsic moral struggles of Fishburne's character. I had also forgotten that Michael Tolkin (THE PLAYER, AMONG THE DEAD--a novel, and CHANGING LANES) wrote the screenplay. All until I purchased it on DVD last week and watched it Friday evening. Man, that's a lot to forget. . . .
Fishburne is simply spectacular in a quietly disturbing and understated way. His eyes tell much of the story. One of the reviewers called him "broding," and this is a good description. His character doesn't want the assignment but flourishes in it. Doing a bad thing well has its own rewards and punishments. Goldblum--hardly one's first thought at Oscar time each year--is excellent as Fishburne's "partner" in crime. Everybody else is, at the very least, very good: Fishburne's superior officer, his lady friend, the drug dealers, the cop/preacher chasing Fishburne.
Tolkin does an admirable job of mixing the music of the movie, fairly heavy hip hop (at least for my taste) with its dialogue. Fishburne's lines as narrator, at times, are very rhythmic and poetic, blending with the undercurrent of music. He is also fairly profound at moments, going well beyond his profession (whether as cop or drug dealer) to be a father figure to the little boy who lived across the hall. The only argument one could really make is that Tolkin's dialogue is a bit too "preachy" at times and possibly a bit too profound in some pressure-packed moments--would these thugs come up with these lines in these situations? It doesn't matter to me.

I, like so many other people who grew up in the time I did and in the neighborhood where I did, was first attracted to this film solely through the title song by Dr. Dre on the soundtrack to the film. I can't remember how much I heard that song get played all over the radio and the hype it surrounded the movie with during that spring of 1992. In fact, it, in many ways, has outlasted the film itself in terms of pop culture's memory. And that is actually a shame.
This a superior thriller, taking the undercover cop story and crafting a tension-drenched and surprisingly subtle movie. And though it begins to lose its bottom by the end and becomes a little contrived, for the first three quarters of the movie it is expertise and a whole lot more unpredictable than most films of its genre. Veteran actor Laurence Fishburne stars, in, surprisingly, his first lead role, as an L.A. cop who is assigned to go undercover and infiltrate a major cocaine empire in Los Angeles. It is a job he reluctantly takes; as a child he witnessed his junkie father killed while pulling a stickup on Christmas Eve. The flashback of this is shown as the opening scene and is one of the most disturbing in the film, as the young child, who had just listened to his father ask him what he wanted for Christmas, watches the whole bloody incident in horror and pain from the parked car. This plays heavily on his conscience and his psychic well-being as the film goes on. He goes everywhere from the seedy streets of the inner-cities and ghettos as a cocaine dealer and manages to get all the way to the highest ranks of the organization. He does this by working his way into the circle of a mid-level drug distributor.

Strong performances by Laurence Fishburne and Jeff Goldblum dominate this story of a cop who goes undercover as a drug dealer, in order to "Do some good," in "Deep Cover," directed by Bill Duke. When he is ten years old, Russell Stevens Jr. witnesses the killing of his drug addicted father, who is shot as he attempts to rob a liquor store, while his son waits in the car. Twenty years later, Russell (Fishburne) is a cop, making good on the promise he made to himself the day he watched his father die; he wasn't going to end up like that. And he was going to make a difference. When Gerald Carver (Charles Martin Smith), an agent with the DEA, approaches him with the offer of an assignment to go under cover as a drug dealer, to help them dismantle the South American pipeline supplying most of the West Coast, and ultimately bring those individuals responsible to justice, Russell accepts; but only after coming to terms with his initial misgivings about taking on such a role. He'll be in so deep, he'll actually have to become another person; he'll be living the life full time, and it may take a year or more to accomplish what they set out to do. He takes the name John Hull, and goes in. This is a decent action film with a pretty good story, but there isn't much here that hasn't been done before; what sets this one apart from many others like it, however, are the two stars. Fishburne, especially (still billed here as "Larry"), takes a fairly routine character and gives him substance. He has such a commanding screen presence that it makes everything that goes down seem credible; he seemingly has the innate ability to know his character from the inside out, and what a difference that can make, especially to a movie like this.Read more ›
