It's actually a sad story, how quality became quantity... Pretty sure the first burgers weren't rubbish like nowadays.

Michael Keaton's character is a low lying manipulative sack of human shit that deserves to die in the worst possible way. Burger King forever.

Wow, what a blast. This is the kind of biopic i like. Showing all sides and - by most of the time - not judgeing, just showing. Well, maybe there is judging, but not too much. Michael Keaton plays the Kroc just right. + Great Michael Keaton + Good Mix of pro and con + Very honest biopic (Did McDonalds wanted to stop it? And why they didn't?) 9/10 Comment on other Reviews and Comments: --------------------------------------------------- What i don't understand: Why does Reviewers judge this movie by the reallife story and not by the movie itself? Of course Kroc did horrible, capitalistic decisions, but you have to say if the movie does it capture right.

**A decent film, although the story told is substantially stilted and made more tense than it actually was.**

We all know that the business world is not for boy scouts. As the film's protagonist himself assumes, you have to be prepared for the toughness of competitors and moves that are often dis More

**Veni, vidi, vici!**

I anticipated another inspiring biopic about a man who built an empire. That's partially true, because this was inspired by the right kind of wrong thing. I mean it was not actually about the McDonalds' story, the McDonald brothers, but the fast food chain McDonald, how the More
