Devil's Advocate thematically raises the preposition that 'is winning everything' in the legal profession.Does a lawyer commits the basic sin of Vanity if he believes his job is to win, as Kevin does. Further the movie in John Milton's trenchant speech questions the very notion of righteousness in the post-modern world. Milton's speech rips apart the whole discourse of religion when he presents the inherent contradiction of it. Kevin's dilemma reflects the modern man who accuses the circumstances for being what he is,the culture dominated by making money 'which build egos of the size of cathedral', the question is can one really call what one does 'freely-willed'?. The movie deals with these 'Hamltian questions' in a lawyer's mind. Written by
i don't get it how some imbeciles criticise this movie like they work in the industry of cinematography! How can you say that Reeves has a dumb voice? What is this? I think some of these "oh so cliché!" *hit throwers shouldn't even talk about movies. Just like with "Da Vinci Code"! Cannes was "disgusted" but it invited Hanks, McKellen and all the others to make some fuss. They needed the publicity. Hellloooo!!! It's a commercial movie made after a commercial book! What did you expect? Lion in winter? Now back to Devil's Advocate. This is a *ucking great film! Besides PACINO, the direction, the screenplay and all the other actors are excellent! You can't just say things based on voice tones or phony accents! All you professional critics on the idmb, give me a *ucking break! Go to Cannes and stay there! You should study mass-media to understand that a big production is meant to be liked by all people, not by your sassy asses!
