More Movie Taglines:
- The newest attorney at the world's most powerful law firm has never lost a case. But he's about to lose his soul.
- Evil has its winning ways.
- Speak of the devil
- Devil begins and wins.
- John Milton: A woman's shoulders are the front lines of her mystique, and her neck, if she's alive, has all the mystery of a border town. A no-man's land in that battle between the mind and the body.
John Milton: Who, in their right mind Kevin, could possibly deny the twentieth century was entirely mine.
Kevin Lomax: "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven", is that it? John Milton: Why not? I'm here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began. I've nurtured every sensation man's been inspired to have. I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him. Why? Because I never rejected him. In spite of all his imperfections, I'm a fan of man! I'm a humanist. Maybe the last humanist.
John Milton: Don't get too cocky my boy. No matter how good you are don't ever let them see you coming. That's the gaffe my friend. You gotta keep yourself small. Innocuous. Be the little guy. You know, the nerd... the leper... shit-kickin' surfer. Look at me. [stops and pauses] John Milton: Underestimated from day one. You'd never think I was a master of the universe, now would ya?
[In Milton's Penthouse] Kevin Lomax: [quietly] Is there more to it? Eddie Barzoon: Just this room. Kevin Lomax: And a bedroom? Eddie Barzoon: No bedroom. Kevin Lomax: Where does he sleep? Eddie Barzoon: Who said he sleeps? Kevin Lomax: Where does he fuck? John Milton: [coming up to them] Everywhere.
- Sculptor Frederick Hart and the Episcopal National Cathedral in Washington, DC, sued Warner Brothers over a sculpture that appears in the film and closely resembles Hart's "Ex Nihilo", which is situated above the entrance to the cathedral. A last-minute deal was negotiated to allow the sculpture to remain in the film.
Lomax and Milton run into Don King at the bout. King was in attendance that night because one of the fighters he promoted at the time, Oba Carr, fought on the undercard of the Roy Jones Jr.-Bryant Brannon bout. Carr lost a 12-round decision to WBA welterweight champion Ike Quartey.
In the scene when Lomax and Milton are walking through the market place, you can see a man walking behind them carrying a box which reads Halo Lighting.
Connie Nielsen's character speaks Spanish in the Italian release of the movie, and Italian in all the others. Nielsen is in fact Danish.
Joel Schumacher was originally set to direct the film in 1994 with Brad Pitt to star as Kevin Lomax.
