Review
Keanu Reeves plays a hotshot young lawyer (and he's not half bad, either!) in this curious cocktail of courtroom thriller and occult chiller. Fresh from the Southern states to start a plum new job in a high-flying New York practice, young Keanu foolishly fails to recognise that jovial new boss Al Pacino is, in fact, none other than the Prince of Darkness. This despite a trail of diabolically obvious clues which are all but written in blood for him. The wildly unbelievable plot drags on for just a bit too long, but Pacino's enthusiastically OTT performance, plus the new and improved Reeves, makes for a devilishly entertaining slice of Hollywood hokum.
