I shouldn't be surprised given the title of the movie. Any time the devil is involved, the storyline is going to be sick and dysfunctional. Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino make a bit of an unlikely pair, but they played off each other quite well. The only reason I'm giving it two stars is because I found some of the content just too disturbing. The acting was very good though.

"The Devil's Advocate" is a entertaining movie for adults. This is one of Keanu Reeves' best parts as a young, brilliant but naive lawyer from Floria, who comes to work in one of the best firms for Al Pacino's character. Pacino gives an great, over the top performance. He certainly makes the film extremely entertaining, when he is on-screen! Also Charlize Theron is always terrific as Reeves' young increasingly frighten depressed wife.

Director Taylor Hackford (An Officer and an Gentlemen, Dolores Claiborne, Ray) certainly has an eye for character developement and some terrific visual style. Perphas too long for certain tastes and not quite the satifsying conclusion that some people were hoping for. When it was first released in 1997. Although it was recieved well by the critics, not quite an hit at the box office. Since it was overshadow by "I Know What You Did Last Summer". When it was released in the fall of 1997. But "The Devil's Advocate" does have an loyal cult following over the years, mostly due to Pacino's terrific darkly humourous part. I still find this picture extremely entertaining over the years.

The blu-ray has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1) 1080p transfer and an strong DTS 5.1 HD Sound. The blu-ray has the original commentary track from the director. There is one nice bonus here, we can finally hear the production dialogue from the deleted scenes. Now the disc has an optional commentary track for the deleted scenes. Which the DVD never had, back in 1998. The blu-ray has the original theatrical trailer as well. It is a really good movie, wildly uneven towards the end but it is terrific entertainment. Panavision. Grade:A- for the movie. Grade:A for the picture quality. Grade:A- for the sound quality.

I'm a devout christian. I don't normally do movies with the Devil in it. It's just a spirt I don't want in my home. The Devil's Advocate is one of the freakiest movies I've ever seen.
The Devils Advocate is a story about a hot shot florida lawyer(Reeves) and his beautiful wife(Theron). He's never lost a case and he gets a job offer at a fancy firm in New York. One of the largest and most powerful firms in the world. He gets consumed in his work and his new job. His wife just wants him to start and family but work is becoming his obsession. As he's at the firm he starts realize his boss may have an alterior motive and might not be who he says he is.
Al Pacino is scary. He plays the devil to well. It's easily one of the best roles he's ever done. He plays Satan almost as well as he does Michael Corleone. It looked to me like he had way to much fun doing this movie. He just evil and vial. He really steals the movie.
Charlie Theron is fantastic. She is such a beautiful woman. She has looks that could stop traffic. It's amazing to see the change she takes place in the movie. I can't believe she'd make herself look that ugly. She is so believabel and is a great actress.
Keanu Reeves does a great job. I think it's one of the better films he has ever done in his carear. I love his fake southern accent. He looks like a lawyer and carries the swagger of a lawyer in the movie. He doesn't do all that great in some of the emotional love scenes, but I like him a lot in the movie.
The Devils Advocate is a scary movie. It's a not a nightmare movie, but more of an eye opening movie. Are we really that vain and blind to what goes on around us. It's not a movie for a young audience. I don't think I'd buy it, but it's worth a peak on tv or a rental.

The plain and simple truth is that Keanu Reeves can't act. Never could, but somehow this inability was disguised until "Devil's advocate". But Reeves' characterization of a southerner lawyer turn into a hotshot in one of the most preeminent firms in New York (was it NY? Don't remember) is, to say the least, pitiable. There's one scene in special that embarrassed me, and I kept thinking that this guy is in fact being paid millions to do that. Well, the blame should be divided with the director, the person responsible for the casting and with millions of spectators that still think he's an actor.
Aside from that, "Devil's advocate has many other flaws. Al Pacino as John Milton/The Evil One is laughable. And I like Pacino. If Satan was half as idiotic as Pacino portraits it, the world would be an eternal rainbow-sunshine scene. The plot of this movie is so thin I already forgot it. All other characters (with the exception of the two women) are just ridiculous sidekicks in the unfinishable story of the battle of Good against evil. I can't remember one single actor in this movie other than Reeves, Pacino, Theron and Nielsen. The final confrontation scene and the whole situation it involves is so grotesquely scripted that the movie looses even the aura of "fable", something that could save parts of the story.
I give "Devil's advocate" two stars because of Charlize Theron and Connie Nielsen. The south african is extremely beautiful, and a competent actress that draws attention whenever she's on screen. The dane , though barely opening her mouth, has an unforgettable facial expression, and is also very beautiful.
Watch this only if it runs on TV on Wednesday night and you have absolutely nothing else to do.
