Some people find this film is boring, could be true for someone who expect for a lot of action and couple of sex scenes. Well, this film is something more than just gun and bullet.

In here, we could see a clever strategy that might be need to be watched more than one time to get into it.

Try to watch it with no expectation of car chasing, battle with bullets and sex scene.

If you fall asleep, well, you can blame on me, but if you got addicted to this movie, well, you can always blame on me too

Forget about Jack Nicholson version of Joker. Forget about Michael Keaton sad eyes of his Batman version. Forget about action and incredible gadget and funny villains in 4 films before.

Talking about film that never be boring, ironic that this film talked about someone who is feeling bored with his life. Don't know what to do with his life, obscure future, foggy dream and try to do something nice for society but failed.

Enter Tyler Durden, your perfect buddy who is just perfect. He is the exact opposite of The Narrator's life, your life. He is the number one fighter in the club, he has perfect job, an entertaining life that we couldn't have, a perfect guy who can satisfy all women and a fantastic cult leader.

Guess what, the fun ended when you know the truth but make you want to watch it all over and over again.

Best Character : Tyler Durden

Notable Quote : Tyler Durden: "Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! Third rule of Fight Club: if someone yells "stop!", goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: the fights are bare knuckle. No shirt, no shoes, no weapons. Seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Fight Club, you have to fight."

Best Moment : the ending

Crappiest Moment : all the scenes before Tyler appears for the first time

Why it's never be boring : It's boring for the half part of film, but once you know the truth, suddenly you wake up and couldn't move a single inch from your couch. When you finished, you want to watch it again and it's become your favourite film.
