Average action movie - just for Cynthia Rothrock's fans only
1 November 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Deep Cover starts well with some fights that allows Cynthia to enter in the action. The movie is boring until the last part where Cynthia Rothrock shows some martial skills fight brutal against the bad guys.She really looks great in this movie and she was in the top form but the director and his team were not chosen properly in my opinion.It was really awesome if the movie was like Guardian Angel with more fights and action.I think this is the last movie with Cynthia Rothrock which was OK the rest of her movies in which she played from 1997 until these days are really awful. Maybe White Tiger will be great because there she fights against another B movie star Don The Dragon Wilson. All in all i think that some of Cynthia Rothrock's fans will be pleased with this movie too.
