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 soul 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 (Charlie Theron) and soul are on the line. He's landed a job that's Heaven on Earth.. which can lead him straight to Hell.

Psychological thriller, not a common genre but a reasonable description. There are some good scary moments, some very uncomfortable scenes and some good drama. The plot twists and twists again. I thought Al Pacino acted his socks off but most of the rest were a little less than gripping. Most of it is moderately entrancing but you won't forget to blink.
