  • Pulls you in, challenges your prejudices, rocks your world and leaves you laughing in the face of an abyss. It's alive, all right. It's also an uncompromising American classic.

  • Despite terrific comic acting...and an atomic first hour, Fight Club makes a few wrong turns and ends up lost itself.

  • A knockout...So feverish is Fight Club...that thermometer contact might make mercury shatter. show more
