I watched the movie The Devils Advocate tonight but could not understand why did Satan (played by Al Pacino) choose Kevin (played by Keanu Reeves) to make him a conscientious person. Satan does not do that (making a person good). I admit in the dream he tried to make him bad, but I sensed that Satan had had a bigger plan, that is to make Kevin a good person, free from all types of greed. But why did he want to do so?
And why Kevin and not some other random person? Is it because he really is his son? Given the fact the whole thing was a dream, I believe the son thing was just part of the dream. So what is the actual reason then?
