    The Founder

    A ruefully titled biopic of Ray Kroc, the man who didn’t found McDonald’s but ruthlessly made it what it is. It details how Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.

    Keaton is fascinating as Kroc, a bad guy who embodies the American Dream - a man who isn't necessarily the best or most talented but who's willing to step on anyone to get ahead.

    John Lee Hancock serves up a biopic of McDonald's king Ray Kroc that is not unlike the restaurant's product: precisely prepared, brightly packaged, and uncomplicated in its appeal. Or at least, that's how it goes down much of the time.
