July 2020 Bar Bulletin
By Jacob Kuykendall
This review contains spoilers for the plot of the film.
Based on a novel of the same name, the Devil’s Advocate stars Keanu Reeves as Kevin Lomax, an undefeated criminal defense attorney from Florida recruited to a top law firm in New York City run by the mysterious John Milton (Al Pacino). Kevin and his new wife, Mary Ann (Charlize Theron) fall under the spell of the new firm until they discover that this firm hides a dark secret. If you read my review last month of The Firm this might all sound very familiar!
Editor’s note: This movie lives and dies on the twists...
