    A classic that does not deserve to be one. The acting performances did not impress me (except from Helena's) the movie has some illogical sense in it & the director made it into a big bunch of surreal mess.

    I don`t care if the point of this movie is deep. It`s still a movie with guys just running around doing pointless crap! This is Dumb and Dumber the serious version.

    Extremely over-hyped. The first hour is mind-numbingly boring, the rest is a mediocre story about terrorism with a stupid plot twist which makes you wonder why people joined the fight club at the very start..

    I don't get why people are always so excited about "Fight Club". There are some views expressed here, some ridiculously clearly (such as some comments on consumerism), but in a naive and narcissistic way. "Fight Club" struggles hard to show its awareness of things that are troubling modern societies, including fascism or repression, but it fails to achieve its ambitious goals.

It drowns in its excessive violence and its messy storyline, and lacks the quality to match even classics that walk the same path, such as Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange". Expand

    Despite terrific comic acting...and an atomic first hour, Fight Club makes a few wrong turns and ends up lost itself.
  2. This exercise in mainstream masochism, macho posturing, and designer-grunge fascism is borderline ridiculous. But it also happens to be David Fincher's richest movie.

    But the second act is pandering and the third is trickery, and whatever Fincher thinks the message is, that's not what most audience members will get.
