Downey Trashed 'The Dark Knight'


Posted August 14, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Outspoken, awesome actor Robert Downey Jr. had a few choice words to spit at The Dark Knight. Dude did not like it:

"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."

Tell us how you really feel, Downey. What about you, reader: Was the Dark Knight too highbrow for your puny little mind, or is Downey angry because his summer super-flick, Iron Man, will be remember perpetually as a second-place finisher to The Dark Knight?
