Fight Club - Movie Review

Truth be told, films adapted from books seem to never amount to more glory in the movie industry than an original film story would. The reason behind this is mainly due to the fact that a message delivered over hundreds of pages can never be the same as one with about two hours running time.

That being said, Fight Club is one of the most popular books in its category, and yet, its movie adaptation is highly regarded as one of the most thought-provoking and influential movies of all time. Edward Norton plays the role of a car salesman and Brad Pitt plays the charismatic Tyler Durden under the impeccable direction of David Fincher.

The movie follows the narrative style of the book and is narrated by Edward Norton’s character. The mesmerizing thing about Fight Club is how it’s going to take you by surprise.

It starts rather cautiously laying the ground for the epicness to come. Initially, you are brought into this universe where a car agency’s employee is having trouble sleeping, and can only go to sleep after emotionally breaking down in various support groups for ailments that he doesn’t suffer from. This dynamic continues to normalize until the moment he meets Tyler Durden, a soap manufacturer on a plane, and they get acquainted.

After a mysterious fire engulfs the insomniac’s apartment, he gives Tyler a call, and that’s when the plot starts to unravel. Notably, Fight Club, like many brilliant movies, shouldn’t be viewed once.

This is because of how the first time around, you will get lovestruck by the picture, and only after that could you truly appreciate the brilliant intricacies of the movie that you probably missed the first time. One of these things is the fact that Edward Norton’s character remains nameless throughout the movie.

There are at least a dozen more things to look out for, that going into might spoil them for you. Bottom line is, Fight Club is definitely one of the most powerful pieces of art out there, that is sure to trigger some sort of existential crisis for you
