Decent biopic - The Founder review by PV

Spoiler Alert
31/07/2017

This is a decent biopic and worth watching for anyone who has ever eaten in MacDonalds.

Real sadness and meaning here too.

4.5 stars.

Michael does fast food - The Founder review by NC

Spoiler Alert
04/08/2017

Keaton has focus, so is good choice for part. Doubt the actual guy was that dynamic, but lends a little zip. Quite interesting story behind it, and shows how you can make it big in the US...........their fast food is better there than here!

Filmland always looking for semi documentary type stories now..........only so many Marvel comic characters! When in doubt, can go to chainsaws and zombies.

Only kids films are entertainment now!

Could have been much better - The Founder review by DH

Spoiler Alert
29/01/2018

You can't argue with a true story and from I read there was a lot of truth in this.

Told me a lot about the MacDonald chain and how it started. Interesting but there is a better movie to be made about this than they attempted here.
