"'Fight Club' pulls you in, challenges your prejudices, rocks your world and leaves you laughing" (Rolling Stone). Brad Pitt ("12 Monkeys", "Seven"), Edward Norton ("Primal Fear," "American History X") and Helena Bonham Carter ("Mighty Aphrodite," "A Room With A View") turn in powerful "performances of which movie legends are made" (Chicago Tribune) in this action-packed hit.
A ticking-time-bomb insomniac (Norton) and a slippery soap salesman (Pitt) channel primal male aggression into a shocking new form of therapy. Their concept catches on, with underground "fight clubs" forming in every town, until a sensuous eccentric (Bonham Carter) gets in the way and ignites an out-of control spiral toward oblivion.

Cast & Crew
This is American self-absorption at its finest.
[A] bold, inventive, sustained adrenaline rush of a movie...
Delivers a sucker punch to the audience and then pulls the rug out from under it. It is sensational.
It always surprises, never bores.
Along with the superior technical work, the movie shows off its three leads at their best.
A bloody, hilarious ride into the twisted recesses of the modern male psyche.
