Fight Club (1997)
On Christmas, I was looking at Fight Club. It was shown on G4 on their “Movies That Don’t Suck” showcase.
I did not see this film when it was released in theaters in 1999. I was so broke that I couldn’t a ticket. I caught this film when it was on cable a couple of months when it was on rotation. I saw different parts of the movie, but somehow I didn’t see the ending of the film. When I finally saw the ending, it was a sucker punch to the jaw.
I was looking at the movie to see what were the clue that lead to the end of the movie. I totally missed them. Now that I know, it has become a better movie, because of it.
If you don’t know the premise, I’ll summarize. It’s a story about The Narrator (Ed Norton), a mild-mannered salesman meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) to start an underground fight club.
That’s it. It’s a very simple plot line that is executed very well. There are some great dialogue.
My ratings: ***1/2 stars.
