The Devil's Advocate

Al Pacino is Satan and Keanu Reeves is in fact one of Satan's many sons. Pacino reveals to Reeves that he needs Reeves to father the anti-christ. Reeve's wife committs suicide after she is raped by Pacino. Reeves voluntarily commits suicide at the end, greatly despairing his unholy father, but gets brought back to life at the decision he made near the beginning, giving him (but also Satan) a second chance.

Revealing mistake: After a day in court for Alex Cullen, all the press and media run to the phone booths. Watch the dude who runs into the second booth closest to us. He just stands there watching the action, he doesn't use the phone. (01:34:50)

Trivia: Does anyone else notice the parallels between this movie and City Hall? They both have Al Pacino running New York City and his "right hand man" is named Kevin.

More trivia for The Devil's Advocate

Question: At the end of the movie, how did Kevin's decision to not represent Getty's make him lose his case and how could he possibly be disbarred for making such a decision?

Answer: In short, a lawyer may not withdraw from a case if doing so will adversely affect the interest of client. At this point in the trial, if he withdrew, it could prejudice Getty in the eyes of the jury (i.e. they might think he's guilty because his lawyer doesn't want to defend him anymore).

But, could his refusal to represent Getty any longer allow Getty to get him disbarred?

The State Bar Association would be the entity that would determine if Kevin will be disbarred. All Getty could do is bring grievances to the Association, but it would be a matter of public record that Kevin withdrew in the middle of trial that and it would be more likely that the Judge reports Kevin to the Bar. Getty's recourse of action would be to sue Kevin, but that wouldn't result in disbarment.
