- A ticking-time-bomb insomniac and a slippery soap salesman channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until an eccentric gets in the way and ignites an out-of-control spiral toward oblivion.
Frighteningly intelligent and visually stunning film.
But imagination and energy are often not enough. On balance, this is the dumbest of the entries in Hollywood's anti-consumerist new wave.
Keeps filmgoers wondering what will happen next even as they are repulsed by what's happening in front of them.
Delivers a sucker punch to the audience and then pulls the rug out from under it. It is sensational. It is also grimly funny.
A knockout...So feverish is Fight Club...that thermometer contact might make mercury shatter.
The most incendiary movie to come out of Hollywood in a long time. It's a mess, but one worth fighting about.
Bold, inventive, sustained adrenaline rush of a movie.
Undermines its serious undertones with an avalanche of smirky cynicism designed to flatter the hipper-than-thou fantasies of adolescent moviegoers.
