Fight Club Reviews
December 13, 2014
Among the loopiest, darkest, wittiest, most challenging mainstream films of the past 20 years. Possibly ever. You may be shocked, you may be repelled, but you cannot look away for a second.

Technically gorgeous, but where the film falls short is how it epitomizes the ideology of 90's teens. Just this empty nihilism, angst, and misanthropy- and this clearly translates into the film by various characters brawling it out and eventually blowing things up, because nothing matters anyway right? But no, we're supposed to take the fighting that occurs in the Fight Club as a bigger fight- as a complete rejection of "the system" by reverting back to primitive roots, when in reality it's just a juvenile, pretentious attempt at satire.

Great on so many levels - direction and editing is thrilling, and the characters feel so real that you're willing to roll with the fantastical heights of the 3rd act. Beyond the gripping existentialism, It's also a brilliant look at how insane men can capture the loyalty of downtrodden masses.

If you ever want to feel violated, watch this movie

A cult film that doesn't get diluted by time. Not what you think with twists and turns and excellent performances.

Overrated. Finch provided a revolutionary direction and production value with outstanding cast like Carter, Pitt and Norton, but the message of manhood was not addressed properly. The anarchism was twisted with a sense of anti capitalist, anti establishment setting instead of the desire to escape the urbanized environment and individualism. However I did like his expression of dangers in collectivism. The post modernism is open for debate, whichever interpretation could work.

Though it is over quoted and perhaps overhyped, it definitely takes you on a wild ride. It's the Rebel Without A Cause for generation X.

You can't get anything better than this. Mindblowing stuff. Cinematography was absolutely wonderful and the editing was very unique. You rarely see this kind of editing nowadays, i absolutely loved everything about fight club. Storytelling was top notch, so was the narration by Edward Norton and his performance. Fight club is very unique movie which gives us an important message, many of the people wouldn't understand by first watch. You will either love this or hate it. Fight club surely belongs there with one of the best movies ever made.

exerts itself to be a catharsis for everyday life's restraints, but the sense of deliberately awkward bestiality and stultifying behaviour incubates the film's midst. 'fight club' puts itself in a pretty sad state: it's the ruffian's idea of highbrow ordinance.

There's many levels of brilliance to this film, from the script to the acting to the cinematography to the overall directing.

it's really about the absurdity of the entire premise, of how one person with mental health issues can build up a cult of unquestioning followers and condition them to follow any cause he dreams up. it's not really about bored males punching each other out - that is just one of the plot devices (the conditioning part).

An original, superbly plotted, entertaining masterpiece. Pitt, Norton and Helena Bonham Carter are first rate and the final revelation is a truly memorable one, just like the entire picture.

I am Jack's 10/10 score.

An iconic film which may open the eyes of anyone lost in a consumerist world. This picture is a conceptual masterpiece.

Mind-blowing, but I can't break the rules.

Fight Club has a strong cast and interesting ideas, like anti-consumerism and freedom from the boring everyday life, but the film is too wild and messily constructed. The audience is trying to follow a schizophrenic man on his crazy adventure going 1000 mph when he's not even sure who he is. I got lost in the deluge of craziness and wild rush. It obviously had a lot of thought put into it, but the result is a whirling, mad wreck of aggression and confusion.

The film looks very interesting with its dark characters and gritty plot but it bogs down due to the violence

This is not a movie. This isn't even a great movie. This is an experience, and from the moment it starts to when Pixies finish playing at the end, every second of it keeps you hooked and intrigued, and that isn't because of the fighting. Everything in it is unique from anything else, especially the Narrator and Tyler Durden, who are some of the best characters put to cinema. Definitely the best movie of 1999, and probably the best of the decade, because it's about everything in the average man's life from that era and speaks to not only it's generation, but every generation to come, including me, only being born the year it was released. I could go on forever about it, but I digress. Basically, it is one of the best movies I've seen in everything. Story, characters, style, humour etc. And my personal favourite movie of all time.
