Product Description

Product Description

Hot-shot defence attorney Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) seems to have landed on his feet when he is poached by an international law firm in New York. Lomax is welcomed by the charismatic John Milton (Al Pacino), who seems to take an especially close interest in his young employee's career. Meanwhile, Lomax's wife Mary-Ann (Charlize Theron) suffers a breakdown, believing that she is losing her husband to a dark and powerful force.

From Amazon.co.uk

Too old for Hamlet and too young for Lear--what's an ambitious actor to do? Play the Devil, of course. Jack Nicholson did it in The Witches of Eastwick; Robert De Niro did it in Angel Heart (as Louis Cyphre--get it?). In The Devil's Advocate Al Pacino takes his turn as the great Satan, and clearly relishes his chance to raise hell. He's a New York lawyer, of course, by the name of John Milton, who recruits a hotshot young Florida attorney (Keanu Reeves) to his firm and seduces him with tempting offers of power, sex and money. Think of the story as a twist on John Grisham's The Firm, with the corporate evil made even more explicit. Reeves is wooden, and therefore doesn't seem to have much of a soul to lose, but he's really just our excuse to meet the devil. Pacino's the main attraction, gleefully showing off his--and the Antichrist's--chops at perpetrating menace and mayhem. --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) is a success in the courtroom and out of it. He's a young Florida defense attorney who has never lost a case. No matter how repugnant the crime, no matter how guilty the defendant, Kevin Lomax has the power to mesmerize the jury into accepting his arguments, buying into his logic, being convinced by his charisma; and freeing his clients. Soon after he has successfully won the case, where he defended an obviously guilty child molester, Lomax is invited to New York, where a powerful law firm has become aware of the Florida hotshot's acquittal record. Here he meets John Milton (Al Pacino), the founder and head of "Milton, Chadewick, Waters", a mysterious and powerful law firm with contacts and clients all over the world. It is this charismatic and charming man that opens the door to a completely different world; a world of luxury and pleasure, wealth and power; a world of endless possibilities. This is heaven on earth. But as Lomax tastes the power of being a wealthy New York attorney, something in him changes. Winning is no longer just a goal; it becomes an obsession. Soon he starts to realize that things are not what they seem to be; and all the things he once had and cared about -a happy marriage with Mary Ann (Charlize Theron), his relationship with his mother, all his happiness - everything disappear amidst the sparkling illusion of paradise. He suddenly realizes that Heaven and Hell can co-exist at the same place and at the same time.
I do not intend to reveal anything else since all of the interesting surprises will be presented in the intense and inspiring climax. This is probably Reeves' best performance. He manages to create a believable character - a kind of example, a role model for the American way of life.

This legal thriller film has a nice twist in the tail, as we see what happens to a hot-shot lawyer (Keanu Reeves) when he is lured into working for a prestigious firm run by Al Pacino. All of the wealth and prestige comes with a very large price - his soul!

Al Pacino does an excellent job of playing John Milton, someone with an unearthly agenda. He could have gone way over the top but plays it with the right blend of bonhomie and menace. Reeves has never had the gravitas of some of his contemporary colleagues but is good value none the less, as the up and coming lawyer, cheerfully walking straight into hell. It is strange that for a much maligned actor, he has managed to appear in a number of good value and watchable films and this one is no exception.
The rest of the cast, including Charlize Theron, Judith Ivey, Jeffrey Jones and Connie Nielsen provide great support to keep the story interesting and entertaining.
This production may be from 1997, but it is still well worth watching if you have not seen it before (or even if you have!). It has been a few years since I first watched this and I found it well worth the revisit. I have tried not to say too much about the plot, as you can read that elsewhere if you wish and and I avoid 'spoilers' if I can.

Also, at just over two hours long it makes for decent entertainment for an evening.

I really like this film. You have Reeves as the rather uptight young lawyer who becomes corrupted by all the things on offer at his new place of employment in New York - a far cry from his previous relatively uncomplicated life. Al Pacino is wonderfully sleazy (it's not the exact word I'm looking for, but my brain is having trouble) as the boss of the law firm, gradually pushing his protege into a life of raging ambition and corruption. Charlize Theron as Reeves' gradually unraveling wife is excellent. Kevin can't, or won't see what is happening to him until it is too late. However, his final scene is a cracker.

A first class tale of the advancement of a small time lawyer into the top society of New York society and all it's temptations. The story goes up several notches with the advent of "The Devil Incarnate" Al Pacino who as usual is brilliant. WORTH WATCHING

One of my faves of all-time this movie. Very sophisticated movie, and when first watched I thought "how can someone think this stuff up!!??" Where Jesus was god in the flesh - Pacino is devil in the flesh walking the earth...Reeves is the devils son, but doesn't yet know it!! Quite a deep movie. You'll have to watch twice or thrice before understanding it.

This is a perfect Saturday night movie! More than just a dumb thriller, with some real substance - but not so taxing your brain hurts. It's even better if, like me, you don't know what the central premise is and it gradually creeps up on you.

The script is very good, the characters engaging (I really cared for them); this is strengthened by some excellent acting. Even Keanu, who I normally think of as terribly wooden, does a good turn holding his own against Pacino's usual bombastic performance. I also found it genuinely chilling with some jump-out-of-the-seat moments. [Slight spoiler alert]. The double twist at the end is brilliant!

An intelligent, scary thriller.

Lots of swearing, shocking scenes and nudity (Charlize Theron to name one) Lots of religious undertones, great acting from Al Pacino. Bit weird and left me feeling unsettled particularly the opening scene in court with the man accused of child molesting.
