Fight Club will rattle your cage and give you a new experience in motion picture impact levels. There's a great deal to think about and sort through.

I doubt that any two people will see this picture the same and come up with the same answers.

This movie is much more than just beating the stuffings out of each other. It could knock your socks off just by the experience of watching.

Make no mistake, Fight Club is a gritty testosterone-driven thrill ride. The direction of this film is no less than brilliant--it takes you through twists and turns you have never been through before.

Despite the fact that it is filled with talented actors, it suffers from the dreaded trick ending, making it a roller coaster ride of extreme violence that jumps the track despite itself.

The first thing is: Fight Club is not a date film. This psychological thriller has an obsession with filth, and it has many extremes and disturbing factors, like degradation, with the only up-front female in the movie apparently being used to represent all of womanhood as a trash receptacle for sex.

There is relentless brutal violence, gloomy warped morality, and irritating politics.

I didn't like this bloody picture; I found it unnatural and inhuman.
