The scene where Dolph Lundgren's character runs through the mass of people during the Easter celebration was shot during an actual enactment by pilgrims of the twelve stations of Christ. Hidden cameras were used to get the footage, and a pair of incognito Israeli National Squad paratroopers followed Lundgren for his protection. None the less pilgrims and tourists thought his fake blood was an actual wound, and "real" soldiers pointed M16 guns at Lundgren and got him down on the ground as they had not been well informed of the film production.

Dolph Lundgren as Mike Anderson a L.A journalist who flocks to Israel to probe an attack on a U.S base where he finds a cover-up. Cover-Up is just an all around disappointment, the movie is simplistic, predictable and has hardly any action until the final 30 minutes. Considering that nobody has ever watched a Dolph Lundgren movie for anything but action only adds to the futile surroundings. However a suspenseful climax saves it from being a turkey.
