The Devil's Advocate
Drama • R • 1997 • 2 hr 24 min
A powerful gripping thriller with a brilliant performance by Al Pacino as the devil
Watched it when it first came out and it simply shocked me very nicely.
for a while while watching, i didn't think i liked it. even afterwards. but it stayed in my head, and i realized the effect it had on me.
Great acting and good plot twist at the end. Straight up classic with Keanu and Al that is one of their best films.
My first scary movie. I still enjoy watching
This is one of the greatest film I watched. Nothing else to say about it really, cause I really can't describe how amazing this film is.
Great story, great acting. ￼one of Pacino’s best performances. Lives up to the title
Well constructed supernatural horror allegory. Pacino at his best. Keanu as well, bar Ted Theodore Logan.
Great movie! Plot felt unique and I loved the story telling parallels within the story.
Mind blowing 🌪️ never thought of that ..and didn’t know what was going to happen
