I don't think I've ever created someone who didn't like this movie.

How this movie was voted 11th best of all time is really a mystery to me, it was an OK movie but nowhere near a "masterpiece".

Very good, complex film anchored by great acting and an excellent cinematography. An absolute pleasure to watch, although it drags a bit midway. Naturally it's a bit overrated, which is okay with me I suppose.

If you're a lot younger, like myself, and are male, like myself, then Fight Club is expected to resonate well with you, and it most likely will, given you're not trying to be all "against the mainstream" and whatnot. You're also expected to grow out of the film at a maturer age and mindset, and you most likely will, given you're not trying to be all "against the mainstream" and whatnot.
Fight Club is a good film, a versatile film, but not particularly sensible. It doesn't make a lot of sense, correct? Brainwashing people so that they may break out of their daily routine to join a cult, which aims to do the opposite of what its causing, correct? It's confusing, but its sheer barbaric nature of male chauvinism and aggressive campaigns against our purposeless existence of consumerism, is utterly interesting and works to a blurry extent. It blasts through the red tape of gender equality and passive aggressive society, and blatantly holds up a sign stating "men have been neutered". Whether you believe we have, is up to you, but Fight Club certainly makes a strong case on why we have. This is where fighting comes in. Seen as a primitive rite of passage from boyhood to "manhood", the meaning is applied to these men who have supposedly forgotten their roots of "manliness". Now what this all means in the end is still hard to decipher, and I haven't read the book to judge whether it is just satire on nihilism and anarchy, but the film is testosterone fuelled and unapologetic in its message to this generations "average man", who is softened by consumer goods and lack of strong male influence.

It also has a pretty cool story and a disgusting art style, which generates a gritty, urban vibe.
Whether the film is overrated or not is a different story, and one that I don't want to get into, for I feel that just calling things "overrated" is a shitty fucking opinion that should be melted in a frunace! It's certainly not the greatest film of all time, but it explores some interesting questions that are left unanswered for good reason. If you're as angsty as my young blood, then give Fight Club a shot.

First time I waited for the grand twist and had a mixed response overall.
Second time I was blown away. Not many a time do I enjoy a film even more the second time.

The only movie that has the potential to be better than the book. Still can't decide

Decent movie - not great - but its super duper plot twist is overrated (and Fincher cheats quite a bit on it); and it certainly is not the manifesto that its fanboys think it is. The degree to which they overrate it make (and made) me dislike it more than I should have.

Easily in my top 5 films of all time, Fight Club is a ballad to the disenfranchised Generion Xers. Dark and grimy, but poetically visual, the film adds to the novel rather than reducing it to its bare parts. A great postmodern tale.

Watched it first as a really young teen and back then I hated it. Now, going on thirty, I watched it again and though it'll never be one of my favorites, I'm now able to appreciate that certain appeal it's got.

It's certainly an interesting story and it offers - especially through the narrator - lots of food for thought on various matters of today's world.

I'm really fond of darker or troubled characters in a movie which is why I liked the protagonist and his struggle against his meaningless existence and his insomnia... and the way he tries to deal with it. Edward Norton's acting was great.

Other elements of the movie, e.g. feeling better if someone beats the crap out of you or following a leader mindlessly, were less up my alley... although I don't doubt lots of real people would indeed be drawn to that.

What fascinated me was the ending spoiler and the way David Fincher showed the protagonist's state of mind with atmospheric pictures and flickers on the screen.

All in all, a pretty fascinating film that's not entirely my cup of tea but still very intricately made and partly really entertaining and smart.
