The first rule of Fight Club (1999) is never talk about fight club. Forget that. An insomniac office drone with anger issues (Edward Norton) meets a wild irresponsible soap salesman Tyler (Brad Pitt) who introduces him to the underground world of fight club where two men beat the hell out of each other while strangers watch. Tyler also is the mastermind behind terrorist acts that target big business. It’s a twisted tale where all is not what it seems.
Brad Pitt is gloriously toned and tight here. He spends countless scenes shirtless and sweaty with his pants riding very low on his hips creating a perfect mach mirage. His taut muscles are skintastic during the fight scenes. There is a short nude nugget when he open a bedroom door, teasing us with what might have been. Norton looks sensational shirtless in his fight scenes as well and his bare behind breaks the stay clothed rule and shows up in a thrustingly thrilling sexcapade. The second rule of fight club is you must watch Fight Club.
