Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is a young handsome, Harvard educated, Wall Street success, seemingly perfect with his stunning fiancée (Reese Witherspoon) and entourage of high-powered friends. But his circle of friends doesn't know the other Patrick Bateman, the one who lusts for more than status and material things.

With a detective (Willem Dafoe) hot on his trail and temptation everywhere, Patrick Bateman can't fight his terrible urges that take him on the pursuit of woman, greed and the ultimate crime: murder!

Based on the controversial book by Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho is an amoral thriller that sets forth a vision that is both terrifying and chilling.

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

This movie will amaze you.. christian bale plays patrick bateman.. a well educated handsome 26yr old living the dream..he works on wall street during the day and by night is a cold blooded killer full of rage and madness.. set in the yuppie heydays of the 80s its one of those films that you actually side with his character as the villian. to this day im still confused about the ending and what it means.. like vanilla sky you will end up with your own theories.. maybe the book would explain more..but overall this movie will grip,shock and make you laugh. never in a movie have you seen someone get butchered to a huey lewis song.. fab. american psycho,,, no introduction necessary.

 Great Plot+Great Acting= Awesome Film

This film is exceptional, Bale successfully lifts the character of Patrick Bateman straight out of the book. Its thrilling, very disturbing yet very entertaining. The complexity of the plot and its characters allows this film to be viewed many times and still enjoyed!

American Psycho is a darkly hilarious indictment of 80s yuppie culture; an exploration of shallow hedonism and empty-headed materialism and the nihilistic desolation that these traits instil in the lead character. Christian Bale takes Patrick Bateman from tight-lipped obsession to wide-eyed mania with compellingly cheesy relish. His violent attempts to find meaning in an existence devoid of feeling are deftly handled and provide plenty of shocks without resorting to gratuitous gore. In truth we learn little of the inner workings of Bateman's mind but this darkly comic satire more than makes up for this shortcoming with its wry humour and razor-sharp performances.

Seriously, after seeing this, there isnt a shadow of a doubt, that this is Christian Bale's best performace, for not only did he chill me to the bone, but he made me laugh out loud at other times. If you liked the book, then fans of the book won't be dissapointed. A very disturbing watch and a controversial film, but well worth investing in it.

 So Extraordinary.. It's Definitely Hip To Be Square! End of!

I had been waiting such a long time to see American Psycho and a couple of months ago, I finally got round to watching it. When it was over I did not quite know what to say or think about the film. It was not that I did not enjoy it, I was not 100% sure what to expect in the first place. I decided to see it again and I am very glad that I did, because I absolutely loved it! I believe it was something to do with the fact that I already knew the storyline and what to expect from it. The first time I saw it I was a little confused and disappointed by the last scene, but the second time I realized that it is almost one of those stories that has many possible endings, depending on how the viewers look at it. The audience can make up for the ending for themselves, and that made me adore the whole movie even more! I could not stop myself from laughing in many of the scenes and I was thoroughly gripped throughout. I have no complaints about the movie what so ever and the length of the feature is not too long or short.
I do not recommend this black comedy and thriller movie to everyone, certainly not to people of a young age and it is not one to watch with the family, as it gets a bit inappropriate in some places. I also suggest that if you do watch this movie, it should be watched more than once.

The Story:
Based on the acclaimed novel, this hell of a story tells of a young, well to do guy called Patrick Bateman (played fantastically by Christian Bale, who gives a powerhouse performance, and I must say that he plays this character with no faults in the least). Patrick is a well educated, intelligent and very handsome man. He is twenty-seven years of age, engaged to a rich, beautiful woman, and is living his own American dream. He works on Wall Street by day, earning a huge fortune to complement the one he was born with. As his life progresses his strong hatred for the world becomes more and more intense. Patrick's nights are soon spent in ways impossible to fathom. He descends into total madness as he experiments with fear and horrible violence. The brilliant Christian Bale plays this soul-less, purely obsessed with detail, modern monster whose zealous materialism and piercing envy fuels his homicidal activities!

American Psycho is stunning in every way and is both a great story and a terrific, yet twisted film. I have not yet read the book (Written by Bret Easton Ellis) but I will in the future, for this utterly compelling movie (directed extremely well by Mary Harron) has defiantly had a big and positive impact on me.
The entire cast, such as Chloe Sevigny, Willem Dafoe, Reese Witherspoon, Jared Leto, Matt Ross, Josh Lucas, Samantha Mathis, Chloe Sevigny, William Sage, Cara Seymour, Guinevere Turnergive and Justin Theroux deliver really impressive performances, but I have to say that it is Christian who completely steals the movie as the mentally insane killer. His portrayal of the obsessional, unlikeable psychopath is unbelievably convincing and I am rather pleased that he got so much great praise for his amazing acting in this fabulous movie. His best ever work, for sure and his part in the film positively proves that he is one rare, magnificent actor.
The costumes and make-up in American Psycho are totally dazzling and gorgeous. The script is spot on and the soundtrack also is top class, there are some real hit classics and really catchy tunes.
This clever, fresh, slick, intense, funny and captivating film is a classic and is hugely entertaining as a good horror and dark comedy.
The Special Features are worth a watch, the deleted scenes are truly good and the cast interviews are very interesting.
I was blown away. It gets two thumbs up, enjoy this masterpiece of a movie!
