Star Trek Into Darkness
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
Avoids outright hagiography, but more or less embodies the sort of bland, go-with-the-flow creative thinking Jobs himself would have scorned.
Feels like a TV movie, but on that level it's not bad. The story is engaging, although Kutcher isn't quite able to pull it off.
| Original Score: 6/10
One of the reasons I hated this Joshua Michael Stern's need to find it necessary to spoon feed his audience to the point of being completely patronizing.
| Original Score: 0/5
This is far from the bomb some would have envisaged, but neither is it the character illumination one would wish for.
| Original Score: 2/5
The poverty of [Kutcher's] skills as a serious actor is on full display.
| Original Score: 1/5
Bio-pics always tailor memories. Yet the welcome surprise here is Kutcher, as the barefoot rebel who brought the spirit of psychedelia to technology.
A biopic that's perhaps too respectful of the tech icon's innovations still remains frequently engaging.
