"The first rule of Fight Club: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club: you do not talk about Fight Club." Perhaps I'm breaking the movie's rules by reviewing it, but Fight Club is just too good a film to pass up: the film's interesting use of satire humor and blistering quirkiness makes it what we see today. I especially think that Brad Pitt's involvement in the film was done to perfection: making Fight Club ultimately a more enjoyable movie, where his performance highlighted that of his co-workers. The insomniac and the soap salesman: a dynamic duo that people would chase after for decades. The movie also did an exceptional job with its camera work, where just the angles will keep you on the edge of your seat! It's psychologically thrilling and a clear king in the movie world. Fight club is filled with amazing performances, stunning visuals, and an addicting plot: certainly, making it a classic that you'll be marveling at for decades. If you enjoy thrillers and want to experience the type of film that changed the way many look at movies, then Fight Club will definitely be of interest to you. 5/5. @ShowMeTheMonet! of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The movie is amazing and worth watching again and again. It has so many fun, yet disturbing scenes with memorable quotes and ideas. It not just a dumb action movie, but a movie with an actual message to say, even if that message is taken to the most extreme. Recommend watching!

A masterful film that blends visual editing and effects mastery with smart writing and a creative plot. Truly an amazing creation.

Snarl! - Snarl! - Snap! - Snap!.....Attention! Attention! Calling all infantile-minded, emotionally immature, adult males who get their jollies playing dress-up in military drag!.... Welcome to the Wilted Wiener Club (aka. Fight Club).

You know, I can't believe what a damning statement this demented, little movie makes about the insecurity of today's man and his obvious doubts about his own masculinity. If this film's story wasn't so pathetic it would actually be quite laughable.

I find it really quite disturbing and, yes, frightening that the movie Fight Club (which started out at such an ultra-low, base-level mentality as it did) never-ever once rose above that revoltingly stupid level of thought - Not even once.

And, finally - I don't care one, single bit about what any adoring, little fan may say, or think, about baby-blue-eyes Brad Pitt(head). 'Cause, let's face it - PITT IS A TERRIBLE ACTOR. He is!

I mean, if he really had any talent at all, then he would've rescued this utter piece of junk-food from the dregs of the garbage disposal with his "magnetic" charisma. But, as far as Fight Club goes, Brad Pitt(iful) was just as vile as the movie itself was.

Not my thing. I watched it once in college and felt nothing strong about it.

Iconic and re-watchable.

Great movie!

Blistering, hallucinatory, often brilliant, the film by David Fincher is a combination punch of social satire and sociopathology.

After a depressed man encounters a strange soap salesman, they decide to form a secret club where other unhappy men will have the opportunity to fight with each other and release their anger. The most important rule however; don’t tell anyone about fight club. This film acts as a psychological thriller in some ways while being a drama in others, causing it to be a classic film that is adored by many. The plot is fascinating and the characters are multi-layered, allowing you to form a connection with what you are seeing on-screen. I would rate this movie 4.5/5 stars, and recommend it to those who enjoy Brad Pitt and emotional films. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

A depressed insomniac man attends various support groups to feel relieved and receive a good night's rest. He works an incredibly boring job as an automobile crash specialist. On one night he sees another imposter going to every support group during the week, her name is Marla Singer. He confronts her and they get a split schedule of who goes to which group throughout the week. During the discussion we learn that Marla is quite impulsive. He also receives her number. The protagonist is then given a business trip and while on the flight back home he meets Tyler Durden, a soap salesmen. When the main character goes to his apartment, it has been blown up with. For comfort he calls Tyler and they have beers at a pub. Once outside Tyler challenges the protagonist to fight with him. He eventually allows him to stay at his house. Eventually, they create a fight club, the main character blackmails his boss to give him pay without working, and the club escalates into Project Mayhem. This project is ruining innocent lives of civilians living in the city and new fight clubs start spreading around the country. Eventually, the main character realizes that Tyler is actually an alter ego created by his subconscious to freely do things he always wanted to but never got to enjoy because of all his burdens. In a final confrontation the protagonist shoots a bullet near his brain and it kills Tyler. When Marla shows up she is questioning what happened to him, and he says "You met me at a very strange time in my life". As the building starts collapsing around them, the film ends with the song 'Where is my Mind' by the Pixies. This film is so good you forget that you don't even know the main character's name. Vividly engaging and with very unexpected ending this movie is one of my favourites, a classic that leaves you questioning how worth while it will be if you're going to spend your life working for the 'system'.

Tyler Durden: Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

You're not your khakis...

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.

"Fight Club" as a haiku:
Start a club with friend
Turns out that I'm my own friend
Stop the terrorists
