Suing the Devil is a legal thriller film that was released in 2011. The movie is directed by Tim Chey and stars Malcolm McDowell, Shannen Fields, and Corbin Bernsen. The story revolves around Luke O'Brien, a young and ambitious law student who is struggling to make ends meet. He comes across an advertisement that offers him a deal he cannot refuse: defend a notorious businessman, Satan himself, in court, and win one million dollars in return. Luke accepts the challenge and files a lawsuit against Satan, accusing him of ruining people's lives and causing chaos and destruction on Earth.

As the trial proceeds, Luke faces multiple obstacles, including the judge's bias, Satan's deceptions, and the media's frenzy. He also discovers that his faith and beliefs are being put to the test, and that he is not only fighting for the money but for his soul as well.

Malcolm McDowell portrays Satan with relish, delivering witty and sarcastic lines that make the audience both laugh and cringe. His performance is one of the highlights of the movie, and he manages to make the character both charming and terrifying. Shannen Fields plays Luke's love interest, Nikki, who supports him throughout the trial and serves as a reminder of what is at stake. Corbin Bernsen portrays the judge, who is skeptical of Luke's case and constantly challenges his arguments.

The movie's main themes are faith, justice, and redemption. Luke struggles to reconcile his faith with his legal training and is torn between his desire for justice and his fear of making a deal with the devil. Satan, on the other hand, represents the corrupt and immoral aspects of humanity, tempting Luke with power, wealth, and pleasure.

The movie's tone is dark and suspenseful, with occasional moments of humor and satire. The special effects are minimal but effective, with the courtrooms and Satan's lair being the most visually impressive scenes. The soundtrack is composed of Christian rock songs that add to the movie's religious undertones.

Overall, Suing the Devil is an entertaining and thought-provoking movie that explores the nature of evil and the power of faith. While it may not be for everyone, it offers a unique perspective on the legal thriller genre and leaves the audience with a lot to reflect upon.
