Evil has its winning ways...
Kevin Lomax (Keanu Reeves) is a successful young Florida defense attorney who enjoying a happy marriage with his sexy wife, Mary Ann (Charlize Theron). Things seem just about perfect for Kevin - nearly Heaven on Earth until one day he receives a visitor - an urbane New York attorney who explains that his powerful law firm has become aware of the Florida hotshot's acquittal record and would like to meet him personally. And Kevin meets John Milton (Al Pacino), the founder and head of a powerful law firm in New York with interests and clients all over the world. John wants Kevin at the firm, offering him a house, a salary and a position in life that no one else can top. Soon after, Kevin and Mary move into their elegant new home and begin a new life. But as Kevin tastes the power of being a wealthy New York attorney, something in him changes. Winning is no longer just a goal, it becomes an obsession. By the time he finds himself defending a wealthy real-estate developer who's accused of three brutal murders, Kevin is thrilled by the challenge, not frightened by his growing belief that his client is guilty of an even bigger crime. Kevin's existence in Heaven on Earth has ended. Now he's stepping into Hell. And standing at the gates to welcome him is John Milton.
The movie ends with a devil's statement:
Vanity, definitely my favourite sin...
A minha tradução:
"Definitivamente, a vaidade é o meu pecado favorito."
