"SEDUCTIVE AND CLEVERLY ENTERTAINING. AL PACINO HAS GREAT, WILY FUN."
-Janet Maslin, THE NEW YORK TIMES
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 doubt-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.
One sexy movie. Great special effects. Fine performances - even from Keanu Reeves. An interesting plot. All make for a very enjoyable ride and a movie that, for a time, held the number 1 position on my favorites list.
Rated R (MPAA)
