"Fight Club" rules are broken down in the incredibly popular film "Fight Club" starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt. It tells a story about a everyday American guy who befriends someone who starts an underground club, in which men fight each other to free themselves from their everyday life. The film is directed by David Fincher. Based on a novel by Chuck Palahniuk, it is considered a modern classic by many guys who watched it when it was released in the late 1990's. If you want to talk about the film "Fight Club" it is important to know the "Fight Club" rules.
The first "Fight Club" rule is that you do not talk about Fight Club. This is because it is secret.
The second "Fight Club" rule is that you do not talk about Fight Club. Just reiterating the first rule, as secrecy is integral.
The third "Fight Club" rule is that is someone taps out or goes limp, then the fight is over. The point of Fight Club is not to hurt someone badly, it is just to get out all the anger and aggression that has been built up by everyday life.
The fourth "Fight Club" rule is only two guys are allowed to fight at once. No ganging up, all fights are man on man.
The fifth "Fight Club" rule is one fight at a time. It makes everyone concentrate on one fight at a time.
The sixth "Fight Club" rule is no shirt, no shoes. This echoes back to old styles on fighting.
The seventh "Fight Club" rule is that fights go on as long as they have to. Unless rule number three comes into play, of course.
The eighth and final "Fight Club" rule is if it's your first time at the Fight Club, you have to fight. This makes people immediately become a part of the club, if they happen to be included in it.
