Silent J’s review:
"First rule of Fight Club: You do not talk about Fight Club. Second rule of Fight Club: You DO NOT talk about Fight Club!"
How bout we break the first two rules of Fight Club and talk about it? We probably should'nt, but it's so damn good you can't help but talk about it.
David Fincher does a brilliant job adapting Chuck Palahniuk's amazing book into an even better film. Edward Norton is excellent as always. Brad Pitt slips into his best performance and creates an iconic, unpredictable, intense, and dynamic character. Both have exhilarating chemistry. Helena Bonham Carter is amazing. Don't even get me started on the awesome soundtrack. It's just that good. Insightful, satiric, funny, involving, thought provoking, exciting, vibrant, and just a pure adrenaline rush are words that come to mind when thinking of Fight Club.
People speculate what the real message of the film is. Some even say that the message gets lost in the badass-ness. I think that message is to just take control of your life or you'll end up like one of Tyler's disciples/Fight Club members. Wise words from a superb film.
