The Devil's Advocate

type
  • Movie

You think you have the boss from hell. Pity poor Kevin Lomax (Reeves), a hotshot young attorney who finds himself working for a mysterious New York power broker named John Milton (Pacino) — a.k.a. Satan — in The Devil’s Advocate. Director Taylor Hackford (Against All Odds) and screenwriters Jonathan Lemkin and Tony Gilroy have devised a slick, entertaining morality tale — but the real craftsman here is Pacino, who delivers his operatic performance with lip-smacking relish. And thanks to video, you can replay and savor the film’s fall-from-grace notes: cameos by Don King and New York sen. Al D?Amato as Satan?s buddies and creature creator Rick Baker?s briefly seen demons. B+
