Fight Club

‘Fight Club’ was a ground breaking film in many ways and made its director David Fincher and lead actor Brad Pitt, launch into the top flight of Hollywood. Not only that but it brought a level of ‘cool’ which not many films to that date were able to achieve, but afterwards most films tried to follow suit. In fact after seeing it for the first time I would go as far as to say it was unlike anything I had ever seen up to that point.

“A lonely, isolated thirty-something young professional seeks an escape from his mundane existence with the help of a devious soap salesman. They find their release from the prison of reality through underground fight clubs, where men can be what the world now denies them. Their boxing matches and harmless pranks soon lead to an out-of-control spiral towards oblivion.”

This film is still just simply ‘cool’ and there’s almost nothing else I can say to describe it. It’s the type of film I can still watch and pretty much have a smile on my face the whole time. With it now playing in Blu-Ray it looks great, but like with all older films being put out on Blu-Ray it doesn’t make it look amazing. Seeing modern films in Blu-Ray is awesome as they are made to be screened in HD and the images pop out of the screen, but older films just look nice and crisp rather than taking your viewing to another level like the newer films do. However, having said that, this film transfers well to the HD format as it’s a very visual film and seeing it as crisp as it can be is a great sight.

All up this film still holds its power as a great piece of art and I have a strong feeling this will live on for a long time to come.

9.5 out of 10 from me.
