    Synopsis


    The Devil's Advocate
    Supernatural forces hover over the courtroom in this devilish drama adapted from the novel by Andrew Neiderman. Attorney Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) doesn't heed the Bible-based warnings of his mother (Judith Ivey), who views New York City as "the dwelling place of demons." Instead, he leaves Gainesville, Florida, with his wife Mary Ann (Charlize Theron) to put his legalistic skills to the test at a leading Manhattan law firm run by John Milton (Al Pacino). It all goes smoothly -- with Milton urging them to stay, putting Kevin on a $400-per-hour salary, and moving the couple into a luxurious apartment in his own building on Fifth Avenue -- where Mary Ann falls under the influence of neighbor Jackie (Tamara Tunie). After Kevin defends a weird animal sacrificer (Delroy Lindo, uncredited), he moves up to an important case with an apparent murderer, real-estate tycoon Alexander Cullen (Craig T. Nelson). Ignored by Kevin, the troubled Mary Ann has some disturbing experiences, verging on the occult, while Kevin, at work, becomes attracted to redhead Christabella (Connie Neilsen). Dazzled by his entrance into paradise, Kevin doesn't grasp who handed him this Big-Apple success. Could it be...Satan? The film features demonic creatures by Rick Baker. Cameos (Senator Alfonse D'Amato, Don King, others) add to the ambiance of ambition and power in the canyons of Manhattan. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

      This is a great movie, one of my wife and I's favorites! Al Pacino, Keanu Reeves, and Charlize Theron were all terrific. This is a stylish thriller with some dark humor. A very unique plot with a great ending. 'Ha Ha!' The Devil ALWAYS wins!!! I love this movie! I highly recommend it! Also, if you don't have this or Insomnia, there's a great 2 pack with both of these great Al Pacino films. (Both in widescreen.)

      The first time I saw this movie I really wasn't impressed. It takes a few viewings and than WOW. Keanu and Pacino together do a great job. The theme and plot is very dark but interesting. I mean who better to play the major role than Pacino. The performance by Charlize Theron draws you into the story. Special effects are very imaginative and entertaining.

      The Devil's Advocate is one of the darker films I have seen with a grim look toward the attitude of doing everything you can to succeed while neglecting those around you. A true sell your soul story.

      Al Pacino and Reeves do a great job in this film, and the plot itself is pretty intriguing. However, all the events do not tie together perfectly. Especially the last ten minutes. But modern day fantasy movies are hard to do.
