Dan’s Movie Review: Suing the Devil

So I watched this film without finding anything about it. Suing The Devil is an odd story about a young gentleman who decides to sue the devil for 8 trillion dollars. The film was peppered with sarcastic undertones as veteran actor Malcolm McDowell played Satan with vim and panache. Suing the devil poked fun at all aspects of the devil including looking for him at used car lots and strip clubs.

Although most of the film takes place inside the courtroom, outside drama was played like a Court TV battle with host and very quirky, and down right nutty Tom Sizemore as Tony ‘The Hip’ Anzaldo. In addition to him was the levelheaded and damn cute Rebecca St. James as the tame and demure Jasmine Williams

Not sure what to make of the whole thing, it is definitely open to interpretation, thoughtful, well acted, and very well directed. I thought it was a rip on the ridiculousness of the whole God Satan argument, until the final stage of the film, Suing the Devil develops a more somber tone.

There were many movie references including the “You can’t handle the truth” line from A few Good Men. I enjoyed it the script, it was smart and if you have a low vocabulary, you will admonish this as trifle drivel. You do not have to be religious to enjoy this film. Just enjoy the silliness of looking for Satan and the devil leaving a flaming business card.

I loved it, Come to find out, Suing the Devil was apparently a religious film! So what, I rate it a solid 7 out of 10 as Motley Crue would say: I give a “SHOUT AT THE DEVIL!!!!! hahahahah.
