Devil's Advocate Review


An exceptionally adept Florida lawyer is offered a job to work in New York City for a high-end law firm with a high-end boss - the biggest opportunity of his career to date.

The Devil’s Advocate is one of those horror movies that screams crazy as hell. Every last sin in the book is broken and shoved in your face to show you the limits that the devil can push you. Imagine you are unknowingly the devils son and he comes back and hires you on his corporate team and gives every richly desire. Then he comes for his payback. The devil wants you to kill, commit incest and all other types of sick twisted acts of evil. I enjoyed this one a lot and having Al Pacino as the devil is just classic.

Devil says: John Milton who is really the devil delivers a memorable blasphemous lecture, saying, "God likes to watch. He’s a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, His own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It’s the goof of all time. Look but don’t touch. Touch, but don’t taste. Taste, don’t swallow. And while you’re jumpin’ from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He’s laughin’ His sick, f***in’ a** off! He’s a tight-ass! He’s a sad**t! He’s an absentee landlord!" - crazy as hell!
