One of the best movies ever! Sorta violent but nothing a 7 year old couldn't handle if he/she was mature enough. The sex scene might set a few parents back from letting there child/children watching though.
Great movie, amazing plot, and excellent execution. The Violence is actually not as bad as one would think, there is constant use of strong language, many sexual innuendos and references, some pretty bad nudity. Mostly it was just a brief flash, but there are a few sex scenes. I would recommend this for kids over 14.
What to watch out for
The plot is pretty much an album of calculated, anti-social acts, from pointless brawls and hazing to impersonating leukemia victims and organized vandalism sprees, all explained as rebellion against a desolate consumer society.
Graphic hand-to-hand fighting. One character, judged uncommonly handsome, gets his faced brutally battered as a result. Extensive bombings of property.
A twisted love triangle, and so-called subliminal flashes of pornography in a subplot (if not in fact). Much talk of the breasts that grew on a male supporting character because of hormone treatment.
Not an issue.
Drinking, drugs, & smoking:
Drunkenness and frequent smoking.
this movie is one of the best movies i have ever seen. by far brad pitt's best movie. it is super violent. it does not skip on the blood, if you dont mind blood and you can follow movie see this movie and read the book.
I watched this film when I was 13 years old. The violence and other 'explicit' content didn't bother me, as the plot is brilliant and the messages are deep. Also, the acting is just mind-blowing. This is a film you can definitely quote from everyday.
A perefect masterpiece, but definantly not for kids
Despite the movie being very violent, it has some strong messages about society and our lives. While some people say this is pointless violence, they're obviously not seeing the importance if this masterpiece.
I saw the edited version on TBS, if you want to call it that. "Fight Club" is one of the most violent, explicit and mind-bendingly creative movies someone can see. Just scrolling through the reviews I see 99% 5 star ratings, and it's deservant! The movie is non-stop action, never stops working your brain! It is just a crazy, crazy anarch-driven film that is a MUST-see for anyone even slightly interested in cinema. That said, absolutely no kids at all, get the edited version on basic cable and only let mature teens watch it.
Great Movie....If Your a Fan Of The Movie Go Read It haha! brief sex scenes, violence is over the top and not too bad...but what grabs you in is the Great Story telling, and Tyler's behavior will make you wonder for hours...
Fight Club is the ultimate guy movie.
but um, helo did enyone else notice the graphic sex scene(even though it's very short). this movie is so awsome, I loved it, the end makes you feel good. a deffinet rent for a guy night, but women probubly wouldn't find it entertaning insted just gross. if your kid knows how these things work(sex) and knows not to repete the many bad words you WILL hear I'd say it's ok. this movie is so funny I LOVE it . deffinetly watch it!
I'm 17 and I watched this film today. It truly is a fantastic film, and can be rewatched and rewatched, to great benefit and entertainment. It also benefits from intriguing philisophical debate, inspired by Frederick Nietzche and postmodernism, to do with our current society, and the values and virtues which we reward. It is a great choice of film for anyone who 1) can stomach some pretty gnarly violence and blood 2) is mature enough to appreciate the film for its underlying messages, which are not necessarily the views of the Narrator or Tyler.
