He Saw / She Saw - The Devil's Advocate


Once again Al Pacino giving an outstanding performance.  Plot began rather believable in that a top-notch lawyer, played by Keanu Reeves could win every case, even if it meant not telling the truth.  His wife, played by Charlize Theron and her acting was good.  There were many twists and turns which made it difficult to follow, plus blood and gore.  I think a few episodes could have been left out or shortened, but overall, it is one of those movies I would watch again.


A film that gets better with subsequent viewings.  There are a lot of details that the first time viewer will miss and the dialogue can be complex.  As the Devil, Al Pacino can make you question a lot of things, he is that persuasive.  Along with a fascinating script / plot, the production values here are very high.  Some of the scenes of the New York Skyline and Central Park are not special effects.  It cost a lot of money to shoot this film.
