Fight Club has been a part of pop culture ever since its release from more than 20 years ago. The Brad Pitt and Edward Norton starrer flick has made a lot of following throughout the years because if its absurd, satirical nature and high shock value.

The David Fincher’s psychological thriller needs no introduction. However, the People’s Republic of China has for some reason decided to completely subvert the entire plot of the movie by changing the ending.

There is no ending of the film shows that a lot of the explosives-rigged buildings which were also financial and economic centers end up tumbling down. The “authorities” lose, but in the Chinese ending, nothing of this sort happens.

Fight Club’s Chinese ending shows a message with state start. The police figured out the whole plan that the Fight Club had plotted out, along with Tyler and arrested the criminals. Many people are not happy with this alteration.

through the clue provided by [alter ego] Tyler, the police rapidly figured out the whole plan and arrested all criminals, successfully preventing the bomb from exploding.

Chuck Palahniuk, who was the creator of the novel that became the cinematic adaptation that Fight Club is, showed his dislike of the alteration as well. However, China has held a long pattern of blocking out things they find appropriate.
