Fight Club

My Rating: 5 stars


After I finished reading this book last month, I couldn’t wait to watch this movie. Considering how much I loved the book, I wanted to see it brought to life and how it would all be played out. And honestly, I absolutely loved it. Edward Norton starred as the Narrator, Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden and Helena Bonham Carter as Marla Singer. I don’t think I could have picked actors any more perfect for those roles. I thought it was really awesome seeing them all together, especially since I was so used to seeing Helena play Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter movies. Also, 30 Seconds to Mars lead singer, Jared Leto had a small part in this movie, which was really cool to see considering I’m a fan of his music. Most of this movie was actually very true to the book: there were a lot of direct quotes from the text. The only thing I didn’t really like was how it all ended. It was totally different than what happened in the book, but I guess it was alright. So if you love Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club, I suggest you see this film right away.
