[A] bold, inventive, sustained adrenaline rush of a movie...

May also be yet another example of a book that was just fine as a book -- that didn't need to be made into a film.

Big Picture Big Sound

I don't mind a film with a surprise ending but, rather than enhancing the film, the climactic revelation in Fight Club cancels out everything previously seen. In fact, the bitter end of the film is a hypocritical cop-out.

You can call [it] irresponsible. Or you can call it the only essential Hollywood film of 1999.

It might not be as controversial as it was back in 1999, but it's definitely just as relevant.

Reeling Reviews

Durden is so intense, focused and honestly violent that the messianic hold he has on his followers is palpable. It's one of the best things that Pitt has done and his performance helps to recommend the film.

The Nation

Pitt bronco-rides through the movie, using many of the nutsy-dangerous mannerisms he previously unloosed in 12 Monkeys. It's the performance you'd expect Pitt to give, and still you can't take your eyes off it.

...more clever and kinetic than it is profound, more a visceral movie than a think piece.

Looking Closer

In the future, all manner of society's ills in the future will be blamed on this movie. [But] this is a film that exposes evil, not one that glorifies it.

It's a movie with all the warmth of a refrigerated meat locker at midnight. And who wants to hang around there?

Boulder Weekly

Lobs punishing combinations at the flabby midsection of life in the 1990s. But as the film wears on, it's apparent that Fincher can't deliver the knockout blow.

Palo Alto Weekly

This is a strange, agonized film--a darkly comic end-of-the-millennium fable with unforgettable performances and visuals. The writing is tight, smart and edgy; there's no question it hits a chord with our consumer-crazed lifestyle.

| Original Score: 3/4

Undermines any seriousness it might have harbored with an avalanche of smirky cynicism designed to flatter the hipper-than-thou fantasies of adolescent moviegoers.

If it had all continued in the vein explored in the first act, it might have become a great film. But the second act is pandering and the third is trickery.

What puts the fight in Fight Club is Fincher's visual wizardry.

Fight Club is not just a movie, but a wake up call to a disenfranchised generation sick of being told by advertising what to drive, wear, buy, smoke, drink and eat in order to be cool.

[Jack's] search may not necessarily be over at the end, but a new one by the audience may have commenced. Any film that makes you question yourself must be doing something right.

Rock-'em, sock-'em, sharp satire is among the best films of the '90s.
