I thought the beginning of the movie was rather boring, but once the actual club is formed and Project Mayhem takes shape, the movie becomes a wild ride you can't turn away from!

Still a bummer that Jared Leto (Angelface) gets beat up, but you'll really enjoy all the characters, especially Tyler.

Plus, a great (and controversial) end and closing tune (The Pixie's "Where is My Mind?").

I had a great deal to look forward to when I first watched Fight Club, but what I got greatly overshadowed what I was expecting. I was expeting a multi-layered cake with ice-cream and frosting, what I got was a nice little cupcake, they're both good, but one fills you up more than the other. Let's start with the good stuff, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton work very well off of eachother, but at parts they seem to work too well, almost to the point of homoerotic undertones. The story and themes presented to the audience preach a noble message of individuality and self-reliance, but unlike the book, the movie seems to condemn the message than preach it. The soundtrack is ominious and the cinematography is excellent. Some characters I could do without, like Helena Bonham Carter, who plays they nihilistic and hypocritical Marla Singer. I never understood nihilists, they believe that life is a pointless curse with no aim or purpose, well if that's the case then why don't they just kill themselves? Maybe I'm missing something. At the end of the day, Fight Club is a hyper-violent and gritty thriller, with a message buried under layers of homoeroticism and anarchy. It's enjoyable, but not something I would watch with enthusiastic frequency.

I bet al-Qaeda must be a huge fan of this movie, and the destructive ending might have inspired their glorious 911 plan. Frankly, I find the protagonist (played by Norton) as well as Tyler(Pitt) psychopathic hypocrite.

This was actually much better and quite different from what I was expecting. It makes more sense when you get to the end.

First Rule of Fight Club: (C'mon you know it!).

I love this movie. This is the original struggle against the 1%, before there was any recognized need to do so. Yes, it's fictional. A lot of good fight scenes, and I love when he flashes back to key moments near the end and sees it as it really happened... but I won't say more then that in-case you haven't seen this movie yet.

Wicked movie, with great writing. Even better the second time around.

One of my favorite movies of all time. You will be completely blown away by this movie unless you read the book. An instant classic. NOT just a movie about underground boxing. Graphic to be sure, but not just some action flick. Has a really intelligent plot and great acting and dialogue.

The author himself has commented that the film actually seems to have expanded upon the world of the book. Usually, it's quite the opposite. Great (but disturbing) film.

A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.
