MEDIUM LEVEL VIOLENCE, MEDIUM LEVEL SEX SCENE

Director: Taylor Hackford
Actors: Keanu Reeves, Al Pacino, Charlize Theron, Craig T. Nelson, Jeffrey Jones, Judith Ivey, Connie Nielsen

Hotshot attorney Kevin Lomax's 64-0 case record has brought him a tempting offer from an elite New York firm. But the job Lomax accepts isn't what it seems. The Devil is in the details. In this gleeful, modern gothic fable, Keanu Reeves plays eager Lomax and Al Pacino is the charismatic firm founder who knows there are cases to be won...and souls to be lost. From Lomax's court triumphs and skyrocket rise to its double-twist ending, "The Devil's Advocate" is red-hot entertainment. Lomax's life, wife (Charlize Theron) and soul are on the line. He's landed a job that's Heaven on Earth...which can lead him straight to Hell.

Good v Evil, and as such I wish it had ended five minutes earlier. Well thought out and well presented.

Quite strange. It never really pays off either. Pacino goes overboard as usual (there! I said it!) Keanu is OK and Charlize is good, but the ending is a wash out and ruins what the filmmakers have been building for the last two hours. But it's still watchable.

Beware:! As I thought the film was based on Morris West's novel of the same name I did not read the synopsis/ Big mistake!No relationship. The film is a bit too smart for its own good.

If Keanu Reeves had been left to prop up this movie on his own it would have fallen over. His performance was just as wooden as I have come to expect from a pretty boy with no real ability. Just as well Al Pacino was there, revelling in his devilish role and hamming it up to the hilt. Great story line but I thought it dragged a bit towards the end.

A great film indeed! Interesting plot, well directed and superb storyline to boot. Keanu does his best acting in this movie. Its a court room drama with a demonic twist.

A movie that keeps you riveted up to the end, and is boosted with great performances from Al Pacino and sexy Charlize Theron! Great twist at the end!

Well made movie. Great cast and acting. Keanu and Al are well suited for their parts. Nothing in the movie is actually what it seems, so you need to watch it 'till the end to find out what's really going on. Scary, creepy and strange bits and pieces pop up throughout the movie to keep you wondering just what is going on!
