The newest attorney at the world's most powerful law firm has never lost a case. But he's about to lose his soul.

Hotshot attorney Kevin Lomax's 64-0 case record has brought him a tempting offer from an elite New York firm. But the job Lomax accepts isn't what it seems. The Devil is in the details. In this gleeful, modern gothic fable, Keanu Reeves plays eager Lomax and Al Pacino is the charismatic firm founder who knows there are cases to be won...and souls to be lost. From Lomax's court triumphs and skyrocket rise to its double-twist ending, "The Devil's Advocate" is red-hot entertainment. Lomax's life, wife (Charlize Theron) and soul are on the line. He's landed a job that's Heaven on Earth...which can lead him straight to Hell.

The devil really does have his paws on everything that goes on in the world including a law firm! Money is no issue as Reeves is drawn in for the ultimate sacrifice. 5 stars.

Well acted with a promising start, hinting of a movie of great interest. But there were places where it became a bit hysterical and the end was too long and drawn out. Anyway I dislike this kind of theme - just too far-fetched!

Keanau's acting is just as bad in this movies as all his others. However, the rest of the cast were great as was the script, so all in all, a pretty good movie. Some great eye candy too!
