Devils Advocate - DVD - 7.5/10
Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves star in a horror/drama about a country attorney who is picked up by a big New York firm only to gradually find out that they are not who they seem to be.
Excellent performance from Pacino who really dominates the whole film. One of Reeves better efforts.
One of those films with a crackerjack scene near the end that doesn't disappoint.
It’s a fun film. I disagree that Reeves was good, he’s horribly miscast IMO. He doesn’t really have the emotional range to really elevate the film.
Pacino is hilarious, he’s having a great time the whole film.
The scene in Trumps penthouse is also good for a laugh.
Tend to agree. Good film, but could have been a great with more appropriate casting for Reeves character. Reeves is fine in the right role, but nuanced characters and accents aren't among his strengths - and this film required both. Putting him next to Pacino didn't do him any favours by comparison either.
