I had heard about this, from the quotes and well references about this, etc. Finally saw it and it was interesting, from the camera work, tone and performances.

i remember my brother watching this movie before i did, and he told me it sucked. so that kind of scared me away from it. then i found it cheap in wal-mart so i decided to give it a try, and wow, my brother sucks because he made me not watch it for awhile. this movie has everything, violence (extreme violence), comedy, mystery. if you haven't watched it yet give it a try, it may not be for everyone, but it is still a good movie with great actors.

If you enjoy a story that you cannot predict, or if you enjoy philological thrillers such as V for Vendetta or The Game, you will enjoy this movie. Fight club is not your everyday movie that is about mindless and shallow violence, with an original plot and many twists in the story it is sure to keep the viewers' attention. Fight club for those who have not seen in it, is definitely a movie you will talk about afterwards. It puts an interesting spin on commercialism and is sure to go down in the history as one of the greatest films ever written and directed. The movie itself is now 12 years old and it continues to be listed as many people favorite movie. With its dark comedy and thrilling plot it undoubtedly is like no movie you have ever seen. In 2003 it was listed as one of the top 50 guy's movies, and in 2004 and in 2006 it was voted as the eighth or ninth greatest movie of all time. The line "The first rule of fight club is you do not talk about fight club" as rated as the 27th greatest movie line of all time. I would recommend reading the novel before watching the movie. Like all books made into a movie it is not quite as good as the book. The book captures the message of story even better than the movie, but the movie does a good job portraying the books overall message.

"Fight Club" is easily one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. This shouldn't be considered a bold statement for anyone who has seen the movie or read the book, as you are most likely to agree with me. But, I know that there are many people who would choose to stay away from the 'Cult Classic' that this has become; I was one of them. For many years I had avoided the movie "Fight Club" with the rational fear of being disappointed. Chuck Palahniuk's novel had been such an experience that I preferred to stay in the dark when it came to the big-screen interpretation. I can admit that I make mistakes in life. This movie is brilliant, and again, this shouldn't be considered a bold statement. Even after reading the book, you cannot begin to prepare for this movie; even knowing the conclusion, your mind cannot wrap around the end. I can watch this movie on numerous occasions and still feel like I am seeing it for the first time. The "Aha!" factor is endless. I won't compare the movie to the book because both are two totally different experiences and shouldn't be examined so closely. I still enjoy and continue to recommend both, often. But, for your consideration: they do have differences as most book/movie adaption does. So, after saying that, I would probably suggest watching the movie first; get your mind blown away, then read the book for the genesis of such an adventure. Even Chuck Palahniuk considered the movie to be an improvement on his novel. I could go on and on to try and convince you how great this movie is, what I can't do is tell you WHY it's so great without spoiling something; so I'm sorry if I seem purposefully vague. But I CAN try to entice you with a shirtless Brad Pitt, a powerless Edward Norton and a delightfully dark Helena Bonham Carter. ;) Watch "Fight Club". You won't be disappointed. You won't look at soap the same way again. And you won't listen to Meat Loaf without thinking of big boobs. Just remember to follow the rules - I heard they're so crucial, that they had to write the first rule twice... :)

This movie is absolutely the best of 1999. For reasons infathomable to me, it only got one Oscar nomination (for sound editing). This is a complex, visually interesting, socially significant film. I cannot recommend it more highly.

I can't say enough good things about this film! I must admit that I avoided seeing this movie for a long time because I thought it was just a testosterone-filled violence-fest. Boy, was I wrong! This movie is one of the greatest, most thought-provoking, mind-twisting movies I have ever seen. The trailers that were shown in the theaters showed you only a tiny portion of the plot. Brilliantly directed, scripted, and acted, it challenges your view of society and gives you so much food for thought, you'll need to see it at least twice to make sure you get it all. Fight Club has become my favorite movie of all time. I saw it for the first time over a month ago, and I still can't stop talking about it. I have also ordered the book by Chuck Palahnuik (which I will pick up from my local B&N tonight!) and I can't wait to read it. You MUST see this movie! It's a brilliant social commentary that will have you questioning everything you believe about modern society - and maybe even yourself.

It is a dark funny and humerous tale. Brad Pitt did a good job

Brad Pitt and Edward Norton combine to give an unparalled performance. Many people have watched the movie, however, some seem to have missed the philosophical undertones that make the movie truly great. Although a box office blunder, there has been a large cult following for the film. It is a movie that has not found its place in time, yet.

If you thoug this was another Brad Pitt 'I love myself' film think again... The guy is great but Ed Norton is simply amazing as usual (Ref: Primal Fear & American History X)... I have seen this 3 times and still hungar for more... I read the book which is a little different but well worth the read as well... I would tell you about the book and film in more depth.. but the first rule of Fight Club is... you don't talk about Fight Club Happy viewing!!! ;-)

This movie is totally worth watching! It is so amazing. Little things pop-up throughout, you have to pay attention and if you do, you'll figure it out! This movie is up there with my favorites. Brad Pitt does an amazing job in this movie, along with Edward Norton. Brad Pitt is so intense in the movie, and it can be funny at times. It's totally worth the 14.99 at Target or Wal-Mart, even though it's not traditional, it reminds me of Minority Report and Traffic, not for any particular reason either.

Fight Club is not only an awesome movie that incompasses all aspects of filmograhpy, but it is really quite inteligent. It captures exactly what all souls that enjoy this genre were looking for. A must see!

If you like action in a movie as well as a little comedy, you'll love Fight Club! Just read this opening scene: People were always asking me, if I know Tyler Durden. ''Three minutes. This is it. Ground zero. Maybe you should say a few words, to mark the occasion.'' ''[mumble]'' With a gun barrel between your teeth, you only speak in vowels. ''I can't think of anything.'' ''It's getting exciting now.'' That old saying, how you always hurt the one you love, well, it works both ways. We have front row seats for this Theater of Mass Destruction. The Demolitions Committee of Project Mayhem wrapped the foundation columns of ten buildings with blasting gelatin. In two minutes, primary charges will blow base charges, and those buildings will be reduced to smoldering rubble. I know this because Tyler knows this.

Yup, violence just the way I like it, mindless but looking good.

This is an absolutely incredible movie. It stays with you days after you've finished watching it. The only reason I gave it four stars was because they changed so much of it from the book. The narrator and Tyler didn't meet on a plane! And another thing, the ending was really good. But, it seemed kinda final. Was that really the end of Fight Club and Project Mayhem? P.S. Did I mention how hot Brad Pitt and Ed Norton are??

-Filled with lines that make one who is unsure with his fillings of sociaty began to understand them. The one movie i never get tired of watching and finding out later that the author Chuck Palahniuk is from the same city as i live in was a trip.

If you have already guessed what this movie is about by its title, take what speculations you may have accumulated and forget they ever existed. Once you step into Fight Club, be prepared to have your brain flipped inside out by this mind-boggling movie. Even as I watched this movie for the fifth time, I found something new. The story revolves around a man who's life seemed to have no excitement. He meets another man one night and had a violent encounter. Having given up on their lives, they wanted to start a club where fighting is life, and nothing else mattered. There was one very important rule in Fight Club... when you enter, you must fight. Watch as these two men encounter many hardships as the leaders of Fight Club. After watching this movie, ask yourself this question... ''How well do you know yourself?''

This was one of the most thought-provoking movies I've seen in a long time. Darkly humorous and cynical about our culture of consumption, this movie tells the story of one man seeking to find meaning in life through primal experience. The ending is a complete mind-twist. Tired of remakes, sequels and mindless special effects fluff? Watch ''Fight Club.''
