Five strangers find themselves trapped in an elevator. As the lights start flickering and they are plunged into darkness, the trapped people panic, knowing that when the lights come back on one of them will be dead. Security guards and police watch helplessly via video surveillance, trying to uncover who is the culprit as the fire department tries to rescue them before there is no one left alive. The story focuses mainly on a whodunnit style mystery, with the police scrambling to find out who everyone in the elevator is and realizing they are all criminals, in which lies the main flaw in the film. We all know who is to blame from the moment the title roles across the screen: it was the devil. Some more character development may have served more purpose than trying to fixate on mystery where there isn't really one, it seems irrelevant which character is actually the human form of the devil. Beyond that, it features some great performances from some lesser known actors. Their increasing terror and paranoia is palpable. And of course the entrapment in the elevator adds some seriously tension, playing on some common fears and building an inescapable sense of claustrophobia. It does very well for taking place almost entirely in a single setting, with some excellent camerawork. In the end it seems no one can escape their fate, until a Shyamalan twist ending intervenes. An entertaining and chilling supernatural thriller that is worth a look.

When I was about twelve, I wrote a short story in which the Devil shows up at some random church and kills everyone present. One of my parents' friends or co-workers read the story and, in the margin, near the end, she wrote the words, "I wonder why?" or something along those lines. I remember reading that little note of hers, realizing that I had absolutely no answer to her question, and essentially scrapped the story.

Devil is a movie that places five strangers on a stalled elevator and then informs us, the audience, that one of these people is the Devil. Yes, that Devil. As in, I kept expecting the line "Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name," to be spoken. It never was. But the filmmakers do mean the actual Devil. So we're off to a rather bad start. The premise is absolutely ridiculous. But it gets worse when we realize that the movie was produced by M. Night Shyamalan and Devil has been tagged as the first of Shyamalan's "Night Chronicles." And he's quite literal about it. After the Night Chronicles splash page, a big number one appears on the screen, either a promise or a threat that there will be more of these to come.

But take heart, the film is actually not as bad as would be completely fair to expect. Is this due to the fact that, rather than writing and directing it himself, Shyamalan simply handed his idea to another group of creators and allowed them to have at it? Maybe. The tone starts off light, actually drawing us in using little examples of weirdness but never relying on overtly religious symbolism. No boiling holy water or priests vomiting locusts. Just a blurry face on a security camera monitor and an easily disturbed Christian (Latino, of course).

i really liked this movie.the suspense builds nicely.there's a very tense atmosphere.you never know what going to happen next or who is ultimately responsible,until close to the end,which i didn't see coming.the acting is really good here,as is the direction.M. Night Shyamalan produced the film,but did not direct it.the story moves along at a good even pace.even the dialogue was pretty decent.i liked the fact that each of the characters had their own unique story.i found the movie quite compelling.i liked the fact that the motive for everything that happens in the film isn't revealed right off the bat,so you have to try to figure it out yourself.for me,Devil is a 4/5

Some reviewers, in various other WWW sites' reviews and comments, have expressed contempt for this extraordinarily suspenseful and mysterious film, "Devil" (Universal 13693-C being the North American DVD edition viewed), for the coincidences that occur in profusion individually and together to the quarrelling sinners trapped in a stalled elevator as a demon (or Lucifer himself) wreaks havoc among them and upon others. However, some of those having commented negatively need to be reminded that, whether or not they believe that there really are supernatural forces at work in this world and in The Beyond, it is the very nature of the supernatural, benevolent or evil, to bring to pass what otherwise would not, or even could not, take place otherwise in the natural world. The film is about the supernatural, essentially about the Christian concept of the Satanic, so why should such viewers be so offended at that? If they wish to dismiss the supernatural as invalid even as a topic merely for entertainment, then it is obvious that a motion picture like this one is not for them. So what?

As for evil acts catching up, to dire effect, with their perpetrators, Hindoos and Buddhists believe that, too, in their own way, through their concept of Karma; Christians express it in a different way (and Grace, illustrated at this film's end, also enters into the moral and spiritual equation, and ultimate divine and human consequences, too, for those believers), so that premise, too, has wide appeal, whatever militant rationalists and unbelievers may think according to their own world view.

Those who cannot stand the very mention of such matters simply should bypass this movie, not condemn it on their presuppositions.
