When his Ikea-outfitted condo is blown up in a mysterious explosion, Jack moves into a dilapidated old house (reminiscent of the Bates Motel) with him. The pair indulge in recreational fistfights in a bar parking lot, which expands into an underground club for alienated men to take out their frustrations on each other as a homosocial and homoerotic act. Though Durden and Maria have a noisy affair, fantasised and actualised by Jack, women almost don't impinge on the world of Tyler Durden. It's a plot feint about the overt attraction between the male leads, beautiful Brad and wiry Edward, that winds in on itself with the revelation that Jack has been fighting himself. Durden turns Fight Club into Project Mayhem, a campaign of revolutionary pranks which extends so far into the infrastructure of society that when Jack catches on to his double life and confesses, most of the cops turn out to be in on

In the novel, as well as the film, Fight Club was no longer enough for the narrator, or Jack in the movie; thus the creation of Project Mayhem. The narrator explains that “the goal [of Project Mayhem] was to teach each man in the project that he had the power to control history,” (Palahniuk 122). Project Mayhem encouraged the men involved, or the “space monkeys,” to cause destruction to their communities to set themselves free of society; that only they themselves can determine who they are and what makes them happy. In Bulent Diken and Carsten Bagge Laustsen’s article entitled, “Enjoy You Fight! – “Fight Club” as a Symptom of the Network Society,” they state that Fight Club and Project Mayhem “functions as a line of flight from the stratified society,” (350).
Watchmen is a movie set in a very different 1985 America where masked superheroes are part of everyday society. “A world at peace, there had to be a sacrifice”, a simple message that is remarkably illustrated by Zack Snyder-director of the film- who takes the audience for a violent ride through this alternate time. Based on the graphic novel written by Dave Gibbons, this gruesome sci-fi thriller begins with the murder of a superhero veteran known as “The Comedian” who met his demise by being thrown out of his high-rise apartment window. Though the stories concluding message is a simple, the road to it is a complicated one which goes through many twists and turns while trying to solve the mystery of “The Comedian’s” murder. The significance of the path which this movie takes to conclude such a pivotal message, finds its foundation in a world that has been constructed around the fear of needing more, set in an alternate 1985 America where superheroes are detached from humanity, where violence is a part of daily life, and where a significant sacrifice must be made to reconcile it.
In the meantime, Batty and his replicants pleasure model lover, Pris use a dying inventor, J.F. Sebastian to get close to Tyrell and murder him. Deckard tracks the pair to Sebastian’s where a bloody and violent final confrontation between Deckard and Batty takes place os a skyscraper rooftop high above the city. This film for me, in my opinion is considered as a combination of Film Noir and Science Fiction movie genre. For Film Noir, typical features can be found in this film, it misleads you into thinking there is going to be a happy ending and the locations that reek of the night, of shadows, of alleys, of the back dorrs of fancy places, of apartment buildings with a high turnover rate, of taxi drivers and bartenders who have seen it all.

Theo, the lead actor, watches the news of this occurrence on the TV in a café. As soon as he leaves, a bomb obliterates the café.
