    Diverting supernatural hokum, elevated from the tolerable by a cracking, show-stealing performance by Al Pacino. It's mostly enjoyable, sporadically entertaining, but it might stretch your patience as it's nearly two-and-a-half hours long.

    It is not a brilliant movie, but it's amusing. The devil's character begun to be mysterious and with the right speech, but at the end it is ruined by the good vs devil's "cliché" conversation.

    Finally got round to watching this film, and I wasn't dissapointed. Dark, stylish and good fun. Pacino is perfect as ever, and even Keanu holds his own here. Cool ending too.

    The entire movie is a setup for the end, where Pacino delivers an incredible performance. An original movie, a good setup with an excellent closing. This is may be my favorite movie.

    It would be a 10, but you can't just put Keanu Reeves on the same stage as Pacino. He looks like he's taking his first year acting exam. He's not an awful actor, but you can see the difference in class.

    This is 10 rating movie, with a slight casting limitation. Definitely, definitely recommend.

  1. The film uses morphing and Rick Baker's monster effects strikingly, but it also keeps its gimmicks well tethered to reality.

    This supremely silly supernatural potboiler is slickly entertaining for just under two hours and absolutely hilarious for 10 minutes near the end.
  3. The story (adapted from Andrew Neiderman's novel by Jonathan Lemkin and Tony Gilroy) is surprisingly well-handled, given its rather crazy premise.
