Critics called it out for its melodramatic tone, but the theatrics are far more feature than bug, and the participants seem just aware enough of the overheated material to wink without upending the whole apple cart.

Violence, sex, profanity dominate graphic temptation tale.

October 17, 2012
Far too bland and mediocre to really pull off such heavy handed themes...
September 26, 2012
Outrageously entertaining ... The picture's most superlative turn comes from Charlize Theron, who's a revelation in the first role to really show off her talents.

Stylishly seductive and well-acted by Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves, but thematically flawed, Taylor Hackford's film is yet another version of the Faustian morality tale.

This supremely silly supernatural potboiler is slickly entertaining for just under two hours and absolutely hilarious for 10 minutes near the end...

August 24, 2008
This is tongue-in-cheek, fun thriller and a variation on a classic theme -- would you sell your soul to gain the whole world?
June 24, 2006
Regrettably, an overblown finale and redundant trick ending undercut the mild subversiveness of what's gone before.
April 9, 2005
Great fun, with a mildly horrific edge, and a great portrayal of demonic glee by Al Pacino.

Despite a wooden performance by Keanu Reeves, this is still a thoroughly enjoyable film for those who enjoy an intelligent horror flick.

The worst thing about The Devil's Advocate is how it squanders the little chance that it had to be a truly creepy and engaging film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 15, 2002
A literate meditation on human weakness and a hipped-out horror movie all in one.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 22, 2002
A hell of a lot more fun than any film bearing John Grisham's name.

[Hackford] seems stuck in a private limbo, unable to decide whether he's making a special-effects flick or a pop-philosophical tract.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 18, 2002
The movie's greatest strength is that it becomes more complex and rewarding as it goes along.

O espetáculo final compensa.

February 27, 2001
Cackling and leering, Pacino puts on a great show, investing enough in his character to make him evil, but not so much that we think he's truly serious.
