San Francisco Chronicle

By Bob Graham
Delivers a sucker punch to the audience and then pulls the rug out from under it. It is sensational. It is also grimly funny.

Chicago Tribune

It's a genuine shocker - a dazzler of a film - a hellishly funny picture.

Boston Globe

Begins with that invigoratingly nervy and imaginative buzz. But its chic indictment of empty materialist values fizzles.

Mr. Showbiz

By Michael Atkinson

By Mike Clark
It's fun to talk about...but the price you pay is enduring its excesses and pummeled-home thematic points.

A Classic

By vanleos13
Fight Club is 14 years old this year and it is still so relevant to the times. The film does the novel justice and I have always recommended both to friends. It's high energy, smart, dark humor and...

One of my favorite movies ever.

From the very second it started i was drawn in. I saw it with my friends and none of them got it at first, it is one of those movies where you have to be able to follow it. Norton is the only person...

Mind-bending, masterfully told. Fincher at his ballsiest and Pitt/Norton at their most bad***....

Soap, violence, multiple personality syndrome

By bwarpenguin
