Why does everyone hate this movie? I think it's very entertaining. Keanu's wooden acting works for the character. Al Pacino is hilarious . I think the movie balances the horror, comedy and drama very well. The movie doesn't take itself too seriously, which I think works in its favor.
Al Pacino è un attore fenomenale. questo è risaputo anche dai sassi. Ma proprio perchè è così bravo non ha bisogno di una sceneggiatura che metta constantemente a prova il suo immenso talento. Secondo me molte scene sono forzate e argomenti molto delicati tendono a diventare una macchietta. Una buonissima sceneggiatura che non ha prodotto un gran film.
Worth seeing Al Pacino play a diabolical and manipulating Devil as he tempt with money, status and sex. Excellent acting by everyone and even one-faced Keanu Reeves is acceptable here. The deserted shot of New York is eerie but the ending ruins the impact of the film's climax as if the film director backed out of it and was scared of going through with it.
All I can say is that THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE is a pure entertainment. I really love director Taylor Hackford presentation. Keanu Reeves looks awesome as an ambitious lawyer. Although I feel, he didn't look like a "real" lawyer at all. But don't you forget with Mr. Al Pacino memorable-evilish performance as John Milton. Actually, I've already guess who Mr. Milton really is from the beginning. Well, it's a decent movie..
