The movie Fight Club, directed by David Fincher, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, is a ten out of ten. The movie was made in 1999 but is regaining a lot more traction from Gen Z on the app TikTok.

I personally got intrigued watching this movie because of the fan base behind it and all the social media I saw about it. The movie’s fan base is so strong many people have tried recreating their own type of “Fight Club” based on the movie.

This action movie has a great plot that keeps you tied in the whole time. The plot for this movie is well-paced; the movie starts off in an interesting way by showing the end of the movie. The main protagonist (The Narrator) is portrayed as a lonely man who struggles with insomnia, which often is shown through his hallucinations throughout the movie. This keeps the viewers intrigued and wondering what is real and what is fake.

Tyler Durden and The Narrator made the fight club to break away from the government and consumerism. Soap is repeatedly mentioned, referring to the cleaning of the society, which the fight club is trying to accomplish.

Overall this movie is a perfectly paced movie and a great film to watch if you like action and a thriller.
