5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films ever made, 8 May 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Fight Club - 2 Disc Edition (DVD)
Fight Club, is without a doubt one of the finest thrillers ever made. Directed by David Fincher, who also directed Se7en,(another modern classic) Fight Club stars Edward Norton as a man who suffers from insomnia. After a chance meeting with the mysterious Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), Norton's character (who is unnamed and refered to as "The Narrator" in the credits) befriends the friendly yet slightly sadistic Tyler. As a result, he finds a way to overcome his insomnia and the boredom in his life as the two set up an underground, illegal arena where people meet to relieve their agression and beat each other senseless. However, as the film progresses, it seems that nothing in "the Narrator's" life is what it seems and that Tyler has other secret and more sinister reasons for setting up the Fight Club...
That's as much of the plot as I'm going to explain as to reveal any more would be to ruin a brilliant piece of film making. The films credibiltity is mainly down to the excellent performances of it's two leads (Pitt and Norton) and the fantastic, captivating plot, which finishes with one of the greatest twists that I have ever seen in a film, as it makes you look at the entire film again in a different light. Pitt and Norton are perfectly cast as the two friends who are complete contrasts in character and Fincher provides top class direction for a plot that it is chilling, dark, thrilling and at times, also humorous.
Due to the film's final twist (which completely makes the film), it benefits several more viewings- more the reason to buy the DVD! I completely recommend this film as it is easily one of the best and original films ever made- just don't let anyone tell you the twist to the film before you have seen it for yourself!
