The rhymes that 'Lawrence Fishburne''s character recites, such as "The jungle creed says that the strong must feed on any prey at hand..." are lyrics taken from the record 'Reflections' by best-selling black author 'Iceberg Slim'. Bill Duke, who is a great fan of Iceberg Slim's work, wrote a screenplay of his autobiography "Pimp" which never made it to production. See more »

Like "The Crossing Guard," this film, "Deep Cover," kept me on the edge of my seat. The scenes between Larry Fishburne and Charles Martin Smith are superb, the writing is virtually flawless, the action is exciting and fresh, and the topic is so relevant it's hard to believe it came out fifteen years ago. It could be released today, it's that topical. I love political action thrillers such as the original "The Manchurian Candidate," but that film, as exciting as it was, left me cold. This film has so much heart and love in it on top of all the thrills that I found myself astonished by the virtuosity of the artists that composed this gem. I'm already a huge fan of the actors. I will now be searching IMDb for the subsequent work of the writers, directors, and producers of this masterpiece. Bravo, "Deep Cover"! I'm telling all my friends about you.
