Christian bale stars as the deranged serial killer working on wall street. By day he's an arrogant stock broker and by night he's a blood thirsty killer. As the film goes on we see christian bale rapidly becoming more and more out of his mind. A crazy, violent film with a twist that leaves you cross eyed.

A striking critique of the emptiness of modern western value with a delicious ambiguity...it's a work of a art and with a career defining performance by Christian bale

A well-made black comedy/horror movie carried by a disturbing performance from Christian Bale. This review has meant nothing.

American Psycho (2000) C-97m. ? 1/2 D: Mary Harron. Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas, Bill Sage, Chloë Sevigny, Reese Witherspoon. Unsuccessful adaption of Bret Easton Ellis novel about egotistical brute Bale, extremely successful businessman who kills people in his spare time. Film's only goal (and only purpose) is for an ironic satirical edge . . . and absolutely nothing else, despite Bale's dynamic performance. Climatic finale almost seems to belong in a different movie.

While not perfect, American Psycho is an entertaining thriller that has some nice satirical scenes directed at materialism and other rich people gimmicks.

One of the greatest actors ever shows us that being a serial killer can actually make us laugh. Funny and horrifying at once, Bale gives arguably the best performance of his career.

Great performance by Bale, the scenes were he shares his thoughts on well known musicians as he prepares for murder is top notch.

An intense and intriguingly gripping character driven feature directed by Mary Harron. American Psycho revolves around Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), a wealthy New York investment banking executive that continually hides his deranged psychopathic alter ego from co-workers and friends.

The film revolves around strong themes of materialism, narcissism and mental illness, showing them in a well paced and stylish way, creating very dark humour throughout. It also perfectly depicts a culture where greed and success are everything, showing the implications of such pressures through Patrick Bateman's mental state.

The film is driven by the ego of the main character and ultimately its his downfall as a result of this ego, that brings his sanity into question. This change in character, from focused to helpless, makes American Psycho so impressive. Bale is fantastic, giving a chilling and powerful performance that sticks in the memory.

What I loved about this film was the very clever and though-provoking ambiguous ending. It leaves things up to interpretation and as a result it forces you to consider what has happened in the film prior.

one of my favorite movies of all time

American Psycho is a stylish (even though not as compelling) adaptation of Ellis's novel, in which Christian Bale once again proves that creepy characters are surely among his pièces de résistance.

Brilliant film. Very amusing part played by Christian Bale as the crazy Patrick Bateman. I find Patrick Bateman insanely hilarious throughout and right from the off when he describes his morning routine in great detail ha.

It's not a particularly captivating story, but I'll be damned if it isn't fun as hell to watch Christian Bale go bat-shit crazy.
September 17, 2016
I had very high expectations on this movie, but in the end it was nothing that good. What stands above everything is the total absence of even the small believability of the characters and the reason of their actions.
