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.

Trivia: During the beginning of the film, Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves are on top of the office building. Pacino is promising money, clients, and power to Reeves if he joins his firm. This is a reference to the temptation of Christ where Satan took him to a mountain and showed him all the cities of the world and promised it to him if he bowed down to him.
