Wreaking havoc.

Spoilers

Fight Club is not about fighting. Fight Club is not about expressing yourself through violence. It's not about kicking a*s… It's about getting your a*s kicked.

The Narrator (Cornelius, Rupert) is our clichéd white-collar everyman consumerist, played invincibly well by Edward Norton. He is so bored with his life and so tired of his job, which requires him to travel often and cause his jet lag, which ignites his insomnia. To him everything is a copy of a copy of a copy. Nothing is real. Everything is fake. Except for Tyler Durden.
Tyler Durden is cool. Tyler Durden is a trouble-maker. Tyler Durden is a soap salesman. Tyler Durden does not exist.
The Narrator was at his lowest point, that's for sure. He was starting to descend into the abyss of insanity, until a spark of his...

In a word .......... Wow!!!!!

"Now a question of etiquette; as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?"

Edward Norton gives a spectacular performance as a man who hates his life! We meet the depressed narrator Jack, who works at a car company and has insomnia. He hasn't slept in approximately half a year and eventually he finds solace in self-help groups where he can let go and cry until he's out of tears, thus stopping the insomnia.

Everything's fine until another faker Marla (Bonham Carter) starts showing up at the meetings (even the ones for testicular cancer) which disrupt Jack’s pattern of breaking down and crying. So once again, he cannot go back to sleep at night.

Jack is sent by his boss on a business trip and on one of the flights he meets the mysterious Tyler Durden(Brad Pitt), a guy who spends...

"Fight Club" by Yojimbo

A yuppie comes under the influence of an enigmatic stranger who encourages him to shed the trappings of modern consumerist life and begin an underground bare knuckle boxing club to rediscover his manhood. The 90s created a whole generation of nihilistic smart asses who found their standard bearer in Tyler Durden. Fight Club was a bit of a phenomenon upon its release and it seemed to speak to the the disenfranchised youth of Generation X in a way that nothing had before and being one such example, I hailed it as a masterpiece as did many others. Looking back, it's really far more a smug indie comedy than serious drama and I can't quite believe that anyone really took it seriously. It was for all intents and purposes the death knell of said generation even though we didn't really see it at ...

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

This movie is absolutely amazing. I had heard about it from friends for years, but I never saw it, tossing it aside as a mindless, beat-the-crap-out-of-each-other kind of movie. Boy, was I wrong. The first thing you have to realize about Fight Club is that it is not for the faint of heart. The actual fighting in this movie will make you queasy, but it is imperative. You may think, well, these guys are crazy because their is no other reason for doing this to themselves. Wrong! Once you realize that everything in this movie is about self-enlightenment it will start to come together. In the meantime, though, the acting will definitely keep you interested. Brad Pitt is phenomenal and Edward Norton makes the movie worth seeing. Why neither were nominated for Oscars is beyond me. But the plot i...

Fight Club review

Not everybody will appreciate this and I felt one has to look and listen meticulously to the film to fully grasp its bearing. A sales employee with insomnia narrates his story about a person he met in one of the support groups named Marla Singer (Helene Bonham Carter) and Tyler Durden, (Brad Pitt) an opinionated soap salesman. Tyler forms a fight club whose aim is to fight consumerism, vanity and corporate abuse from organizations. He likewise becomes serious with Marla and the narrator (Edward Norton) becomes jealous. An attempt to blow up buildings was created by Tyler in the form of Project Mayhem. The narrator does his best to stop it while saving an abducted Marla. Some unforgettable lines to learn from: Tyler – “You are not your job. You're not how much money you have in the b...

Who is Tyler Durden?

David Fincher's portrayal of this novel is truly awesome. The man we come to know as Tyler Durden has a problem. His life is so bland and predictable that it seems to him that its no longer worth living. Not to mention the insomnia that has wrapped itself around Tyler's mind making things that much more difficult. He soon meets a man( on one of his many flights around the country) Named Tyler Durden( the real TD does not realize the true meaning of this until the the very end). This Tyler shows him a new way to live life that Tyler(Norton) finds he should have been living all along. They form a "Fight Club" that soon escalates from mere a fist fighting club "just for the hell of it" to a militia who's sole purpose is to rid the world of all the things that mankind thinks are neces...

Fight Club Review

This movie is incredible. The whole story has a meaning what happens when you let go of life and reality? I loved every second of this movie. Brad Pitt was amazing in this film. This was the movie that sky rocketed his movie career. Everything he said you felt was real. He played that part to perfection. This movie made me follow his movie career ever since. Edward Norton did amazing as well. I love how he played his part in this movie it's very believable. This movie needs to be seen by everyone to understand what this world is coming to. Helena Bonham Carter did great as the mistress in this film. This film delievers tour de force performances from every cast in this film which rarely happens in a film anymore. This movie has a very intense shocking ending that will leave you speechles...

Mind Blowing..

...would be the only two words that can justly describe this film, that will challenge you, entertain you, and disturb you!

One of the best films I've seen in a long time, "Fight Club" concerns a slightly depressed, insomniac, known only as "Jack" who looks for a way to change his life. He finds that in a slippery soap salesman, by the name of Tyler Durden. Both men form an underground boxing commune of sorts, dubbed "Fight Club"."Fight Club" is a rare film, the kind of film that only comes along once a decade. Like "A Clockwork Orange", "Fight Club" was controversial when it was first released for its frank depiction of violence. but those who can stand the violence will be glad that they did, because this film isn't just about a bunch of losers pounding the hell out of each other, I...

Who woulda thought

Fight Club is, quite simply, flawless. The casting is perfection, the acting exquisite, the humor totally unexpected, and the rollercoaster ride of a plot is intense, thrilling and utterly unpredictable. When you watch Fight Club for the first time, it is impossible to anticipate what will happen next. Other than that you will definitely see it again. And again. And again. It will have an impact on you. It may even leave you literally breathless. The fact that many reviewers have felt the need to explain Fight club, variously, as a morality play, an existential masterpiece, a socio-economic commentary, an exercise in gratuitous violence, a bizarre hetero romance, a festival of homo-eroticism, etc, attests to the truly profound effect Fight Club has on nearly everyone who sees. Personally,...
