Young, male, repressed rage comes in the form of Norton's disillusioned yuppie, emotionally numbed by chronic insomnia, who meets the answer to all his pent-up frustrations in malcontent Pitt. Tyler's his name and anarchy's his game as the duo eventually establish fight clubs where the participants beat each other up and stage massive acts of terrorism to undermine the allure of consumerism. Bonham Carter plays a kinky, death-obsessed woman both men fancy. Fincher heads for the dark side again and puts a middle finger on the pulse of several hot topics without missing a beat or skirting the issues. Film's dark humor and stylistic vision of young male malaise is made even more biting by newcomer Uhl's faithful adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's debut novel. Performances by all three leads are equal to the powerful subject matter.

This is one of my favorite movies. Brad Pitt is a bad a** and is totally ripped. He plays Tyler, who started the fight club and gets men from all over to join one of his many fight clubs. Norton's character seems intrigued by Tyler and "joins" the fight club. He does whatever Tyler tells him to do. Throughout the movie, more and more fight clubs are made and a soap factory that used the people's fat from surgery. Norton's character gets really confused towards the end of the movie and tries to figure out what is going on. He travels and digs for information from everyone. He has a mental problem that made up Tyler because Tyler is everything he wants to be. His life is taken over and he has to figure out how to fix it. He was the one who started the fight clubs and the factory. This is a great movie, and I recommend it to everyone who hasn't seen it yet, and everyone who has already.
