  1. Would you say it's an accurate portrayal and how offended were you?
  2. Who is Robert Downer Jr.

    Is he related to Robert Downey Jr, perhaps?

  6. Well technically, he's actually playing a white guy who got plastic surgery done so that the white guy hes playing could play a black guy....

    He's a dude, playin a dude, disguised like another dude ;)

  7. "I'm a dude, playing a dude disguised as another dude!"

    In this scene RDJ is wearing a disguise which makes Robert Downey Jr acting as an Australian, who is acting as a black man, pretending to be an opium employee.
    That's like 4 levels

    Does he play an accurate representation? He does get called out for acting stereotypical,
    And the joke a few times is his over the top actions give me that damn map or when he doesn't stop being black despite situations anyone would stop acting

    Pretty funny though

    So funny

    I'm part black, which in the eyes of everyone else means I'm 100% black. :laughing: But yeah, i wasn't offended, i knew it was a comedy and he play it flawlessly. I honestly thought he WAS a black man the first time I saw it and was like "there is no way they made him look so black" BUT THEY DID! it's some shit, good movie all around:popcorn:
