The Founder online movie review - Ray Krocs road to creating the Famous fast food chain "McDonalds
Movie: Ray Kroc, the founder of the massive fast food chain that we all know; McDonalds, well not really, more like the "franchiser?
" The founder is based off Ray Kroc who made McDonalds famous and what we know it as today. One thing though, I was uneasy about the fact that Ray Kroc was not the founder of McDonalds, what he did was spread franchises of the restaurant. This movie caught my attention to go watch because I thought; there hasn't been a movie about a fast food chain origin so I was interested in seeing what the movie was like. I have looked into the subject before and I do recommend they do the story of Colonel Sanders, the creator of KFC.
Actors and Directors: Michael Keaton as the main role was great for Ray Kroc, the role was originally meant to be given to Tom Hanks but he turned down the role. John Lee Hancock as the director was acceptable, the things he could have done that would of made the movie better would be the progress of McDonalds after Ray Kroc bought the McDonalds brothers out of the business, like this all happened during 1950s where they only sold hamburgers, fries and milkshakes so they could of added the other menu items they added on like the Big Mac and Mc-nuggets and other menu items. They also could have added the original Ronald McDonald, which was kind of creepy. Things like this could have made the movie better and more entertaining.
Feedback: If you are interested in the subject of this movie, I recommend you go check it out for yourself and what you thought of the movie. If you are just looking for a movie to watch, this is an okay option. Obviously the movie is based on a true story and is based off the golden arches we all know today. To be honest when I went to go see the movie, I had kind of higher expectations for the movie but the movie was still a great watch. The most fun thing about it was going to McDonalds after the movie to eat a burger and fries. With IMDb giving a score of 7.7/10 and Rotten Tomatoes giving 92%, I rate this movie a 7.1/10.
