Tell us what you really think, Robert Downey Jr.

Bob ‘The Bitch’:
I’ll make no secret about it, this is a tough post for me. It’s tough because I truly think Robert Downey Jr. is one of the greatest actors of our time, and I also think Batman: The Dark Knight was one of the most groundbreaking movies I’ve ever seen. So let me just put this out there as an unbiased third party. Robert Downey Jr. took a shit all over Batman: The Dark Knight. In a recent interview with Moviehole Jr. unloaded on DC and The Dark Knight,

My whole thing is that that I saw ‘The Dark Knight’. I feel like I’m dumb because I feel like I don’t get how many things that are so smart. It’s like a Ferrari engine of storytelling and script writing and I’m like, ‘That’s not my idea of what I want to see in a movie.’ I loved ‘The Prestige’ but didn’t understand ‘The Dark Knight’. Didn’t get it, still can’t tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I’m like, ‘I get it. This is so high brow and so f–king smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.’ You know what? F-ck DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.”

Personally I loved how the movie ended with Batman becoming the outlaw. And it’s hard not to say that maybe Downey Jr. has a bit of a biased opinion as he is after all…playing Iron Man. But anytime a talent like Jr. speaks it’s always entertaining and worth a listen.

it’s funny that Robert Downey Jr. said the Dark Knight is too sophisticated when he himself tends to sound so sophisticated
