“Police Rapidly Figured Out The Whole Plan”: See How The Iconic Movie ‘Fight Club’ Ends In CHINA

The authorities “arrested all criminals” and sent them to a lunatic asylum.

In a stark example of China’s model of censorship and authoritarianism, a version of the 1999 movie Fight Club appeared online, with an edited ending for a Chinese audience in which the police ‘figure out the whole plan’, arrest the protagonists and ship them off to a lunatic asylum.

In the original ending, Edward Norton’s character watches as multiple buildings explode, the culmination of his alter ego Tyler Durden’s plot to bring down a corrupt, consumerism obsessed civilisation.

However, as Vice notes, in the version distributed in China that end scene is cut and replaced with a black screen and a caption reading “Through the clue provided by Tyler, the police rapidly figured out the whole plan and arrested all criminals, successfully preventing the bomb from exploding.”

It adds, “After the trial, Tyler was sent to lunatic asylum receiving psychological treatment.”

The report notes that “the film was edited by the copyright owner and then approved by the government before it was sold to streaming sites for distribution. The Chinese publisher of the film, Pacific Audio & Video Co., is an affiliate of the state-owned Guangdong TV.”

The author of the book on which Fight Club is based on weighed in via a Substack posting, writing “Tyler and the gang were all arrested. He was tried and sentenced to a mental asylum. How amazing. I’d no idea! Justice always wins. Nothing ever exploded. Fini.”

Others submitted their own contributions via Twitter:

Of course, this is entirely commonplace for all western movies and shows played in China. As Bloomberg notes, a version of the 2005 movie Lord of War starring Nicholas Cage as an arms smuggler ends with the final 30 minutes of footage replaced with white text on a black screen saying “Yuri Orlov confessed all the crimes officially charged against him in court, and was sentenced to life imprisonment in the end.”

    Senator Rand Paul praised Elon Musk Wednesday for standing up for free speech, predicting that the Twitter owner will be recorded as a key figure in history in the fight against censorship.

    Referring to Musk’s compelling take down of a CNBC hack earlier this week, Paul noted “Thank God for someone who can still speak their mind and won’t take some guff off a journalist who tells him he can’t speak his mind.”

    “Somewhere along the way something happened and people began to think that only certain forms of speech were acceptable,” The Senator urged.

    “Then along came Elon Musk,” Paul continued, adding “The country, the Bill of Rights frankly, all of us, are going to be very thankful that a guy with a lot of money bought a social media entity and allowed us to see the government colluding to limit speech.”

    “People need to get this right. Private companies can decide what they want to air, newspapers can, television shows can. But what we cannot allow to happen is the government to collude with private business and use them basically as their extension and their arm of censor,” Paul emphasised.

    He added that “Elon Musk exposed this only because he had 44 billion dollars to buy a company and expose their inner workings off collusion with government.”
