This movie has some great social commentary, especially on consumerism, but it gets dragged down by a story that goes too far past believability within it's own context and a lot of mindless violence - keyword is mindless. The social commentary is what gives this movie most of it's value.

Go see this film if you haven't already.
P.S (mild spoilers)

Watched with the David Fincher commentary
I could probably sum Fight Club up in one sentence. I'll go further than that, but I would like to start you off with that sentence: David Fincher is a fucking genius.
I've seen eight of Fincher's nine films, and I fucking dig every bloody one of them. Brad Pitt (Inglourious Basterds, Troy, Burn After Reading, Interview with the Vampire, Se7en, Snatch, Megamind) was never appreciated by me until I saw Fight Club (though more recently I have gone on…
