The Devil's Advocate

Saw this movie before in the theater except for the ending, I walked out... too scary. Very good balance between the corporeal <i>The Firm</i> aspect and the ethereal demonic part, avoids turning into a horror movie. Keanu Reeves takes is about 50/50 on the jerk-lawyer. Ok except when he does those "forceful acting is good acting" moments. <strike>Ashley Judd</strike> Charlize Theron is really good, very good. Al Paccino, excellent. In fact, all the actors (minus Keanu) are well cast. Really scary the first time around, when those ladies are in the changing room... Yikes.

This movie stinks. Actually, parts of this movie are 7, just fun to watch. I love seeing a huge dinosaur ransacking through New York City. Awesome. If only there had been more of that and less... "plot". Mathew Broderick; have you ever seen him passionate in any movie? I've seen him with his one and only expression, a strange combination of boyish nothingness that could pass for excited/sad/angry/just found out Godzilla's pregnant/oh my gosh space apes! Actually, space apes would have bumped the rating past 0 back up to "4: Laughably corny, so bad it's good." Maria Pitillo just made my black list. She wants to be a Kate Hudson, but ends up being... bad. Sad waste of Jean Reno. Some movie highlights:
-I left you 8 years ago without any explanation and I just stole your material, got you fired, and smeared your name in the news... wanna make out?
-Our computers can only render 1 HUGE CG Godzilla, or a couple hundred small ones. Hmm....
-We're being attacked by mini dinosaurs, our weapons do nothing! Quick, throw gumballs at them! (For Real!!)
-OH MY GOD, SPACE APES!
The End.
Please.

One of my always-wanted-to-see movies, ever since I heard about it in the San Francisco Film Festival. Finally got to see it, thanks to P. Verdict; Pointless. Not fun indie pointless, just pointless. The actors seem to give contrived high-school performances, with the director just off camera coaching. Or worse, with no coaching. Someone else's cup of tea.
