The Devil's Advocate is a mesmerizing combination of terror, horror and comedic undertones that bring to life this cleverly orchestrated story of evil setting up shop among the innocent, the sinners, all the while deceiving them all to get what he truly wants.
Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) is one red-hot young lawyer who hasn't lost any of his cases. In fact, he's so good that he's been asked to join the world's most successful law firm headed by John Milton (Al Pacino). Sound too good to be true? Well, it all depends on what you want out of life and what you'll do to achieve your goals. Kevin's wife, Mary Ann (Charlize Theron), knows what she wants, but for Kevin, will it all go up in flames when he realizes the sacrifice he'll have to make to become a member of John's elite team?
Pacino is outlandishly wicked and pumped up with adrenaline and feistiness. His performance was one of the most entertaining, sexy and offbeat ones to date. Reeves held out strong and gave a lot of richness and confidence to his character; quite charming actually. Charlize Theron was sizzling and dynamic.
With an exceptional cast, direction, cinematography, special effects, music featuring The Rolling Stones classic song "Paint It Black," and a devilishly good storyline all lead to one thing---a hell of a good movie!
DVD extras include feature-length audio commentary by director Taylor Hackford, more than 30 minutes of deleted scenes, interactive menus, production notes, five theatrical trailers, two TV spots, scene access, languages: English & French, subtitles: English, French & Spanish.
It would be a sin not to see "The Devil's Advocate."
