An interesting story. Michael Keaton delivers yet another great performance. The biopic was well written, but falls just a little bit short on length, as it's a bit too long.

I enjoyed this film which follows the process of Ray Kroc to make McDonalds a world wide name and franchise. It shows what a shrewd business man Kroc was . Very good acting by Michael Keaton.

Based on the true story of the founding of McDonald's it was an interesting story about how Ray Kroc (played by Michael Keaton) started the franchises.

I haven't been to a McDonald's restaurant in many months. If you ask me, I'd rather go to a Burger King. for a whopper. Getting that out of my way, "the Founder," is one of those based on a true stories movies in which the subject of the movie isn't seen in a positive light. Michael Keaton plays Ray Koc who is a milkshake machine salesman who came upon a eating joint run by Mac and Dick MacDonald's who ran the burger like cars coming off a assembly line. Ray was so impress with the burger joint, that he wants to expand all actress the nation, if not the world. But there is a major conflict between Koc, who wants to expand the restaurant and the brothers who was robbed of the royalties. This is a movie about the rise of a visionary who sees the future of not only MacDonald's, but food joints like Burger King, KFC, Wendy's and so on. "The Founder," a smart movie, but less of a joy. One question: Did the Big Mac was named after one of the brothers? Only asking.
