Robert Downey Jr. has become the biggest star in Hollywood now, and he is not just ruling the Box Office, but he is also the ruler of our hearts. Fans love everything about him, his attitude, his acting, his style, just everything. As soon as we see his name in any movie, no matter how small or big the role is, no matter what kind of movie it is, we will just go and what that movie anyway. Here is a list of his best movies till date.
Captain America: Civil War
Well, we all know that it was a Captain America movie but Downey Stole the show no matter what anyone would say. He was just great as Iron Man and he gave the movie the emotion it required along with Chris Evans. If you think about it, Downey was the real hero of the story as he was only trying to do good for the team and everyone else.
The Avengers was the biggest Superhero movie to ever be made and it was the first Superhero team up movie we had ever seen. Everyone did great in the movie but we all know that the stand out guy was none other than Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark. He was the real reason the movie did so well on the box office. The movie just raised the bar for other movies in the genre.
Iron Man was the best Superhero movie to ever be made and it still stands out at the top. This is the movie which actually sky rocketed Downey’s career and made us fall madly in love with him. It totally changed the definition for a Superhero origin story and gave us the best Superhero of all time. Downey was the main reason for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he gave a grand start to the franchise with Iron Man. It was a great story all in all.
Robert Downey Jr. gave us the most lovable interpretation of the world’s best detective (other than Batman). The take on the character was so different and amazing. The movie was really awesome and it was one of the best mystery movies all time. Everything about the movie was great and we loved the way the whole scenario was portrayed.
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Even though the second Avengers movie was not as good as the first one, it was a massive movie that we all loved. When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner trying to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it’s up to Earth’s mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan. It was a story that centered Tony Stark and the rest of the team. The movie earned a humongous box office number.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Due to the huge success of the first movie of the franchise, we all knew that a second one was coming and it was as good as the first one. In the movie, Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his longtime trusted associate, Doctor Watson (Jude Law), take on their arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), with the help of Holmes’ older brother Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) and a gypsy named Simza (Noomi Rapace).
Iron Man 3
Even though the fans were not happy with the plot twist that took place in the movie, it was still a great movie and it did massively well on the box office as well. It went over a $Billion due to just one guy, RDJ! It was the third solo outing for RDJ’s Tony Stark and he gave it all he had in the movie. When Tony Stark’s world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution and gave us a really good and entertaining story to witness.
We all know that Downey has a great comic timing, and this is what we saw in the movie. Due Date was a crazy fun ride where a High-strung father-to-be Peter Highman (RDJ) is forced to hitch a ride with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) on a road trip in order to make it to his child’s birth on time. The combination of Downey and Zach became really lethal on the big screen.
Iron Man 2
The second Installment in the Iron Man franchise was probably the least favourite out of all Iron Man relating movies, but it was still a great movie and fans loved how Tony’s story prospered. With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark contended with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man who had ties to his father’s legacy. It was the movie that really gave The Avengers a big push.
Through a series of freak occurrences, a group of actors shooting a big-budget war movie is forced to become the soldiers they are portraying. It was a thrilling ride and Robert Downey Jr. was even nominated for an Academy award for his role in the movie as his performance was really amazing.
Other than these 10, Downey did a really great job in The Judge, Chaplin, Less than Zero and he also gave amazing cameos in great movies like Chef, Spider-Man Homecoming and The Incredible Hulk.
