Jobs presents a fascinating story of how Jobs overcomes corporate backbiting and channels his own tendency toward obsession to build arguably the most innovative company of the last decade.

One might expect Jobs, a biopic of Steve Jobs, to canonize the Apple computer magnate who was only 56 when he died in 2011. But it's a lot more fun than that.

Those more familiar with this remarkable figure will find the film lacks the depth and complexity of the real Jobs.

Too often the audience is taken out of the scene with thoughts of" Hey, isn't that Ashton Kutcher?" simply because the portrayal comes off too contrived.

While entertaining, the film doesn't achieve the ultimate goal of Steve Jobs' work: to make the things that matter beautiful and to find beauty in the small moments.

The opening scene of Jobs, the feeble biopic of the iconic Apple founder, is the one that keeps recurring throughout the film, with varying degrees of hagiographical worship, which is never less than lofty.

It's just insightful enough, albeit briefly, to be worth your time.

The critics screwed up on this. It is a much better film than its rating here. Take that from someone who worked in IT for 44 years and who knows the difference between "fresh" and "rotten".

The movie is littered with small details of lore that should make Apple fanatics happy.
December 23, 2013
A noble but unworthy effort that will likely disappoint viewers looking for a thoughtful look into the technological genius.

Matt Whiteley's clumsy script attempts to sync Jobs' personal story with the corporate history of his brand but as any affirmed Android/PC users will gladly tell you, syncing with Apple can be problematic at the best of times.

This movie would be exponentially better if it were called Twenty-Something Jobs or Jobs, Woz And The First 2 Apples.

Ashton Kutcher does a very fine job as Jobs, portraying him less as a technological wizard and more as a business visionary who realised his out-of-the-box ideas by surrounding himself with people who were admittedly more talented than he was.

Ashton Kutcher IS Steve Jobs. You have to give Kutcher credit: He studied his character. That he successfully completed his homework is evidenced in 'Jobs,' a biopic of Apple Inc.'s late genius.

While it may be of interest to some, it's not going to provide any new perspective for those already familiar with Jobs' life.

September 12, 2013
One can see Kutcher acting, valiantly trying oh-so-hard as his every answer to any requirement for emotional intensity unilaterally comes off as merely shrilly raising the volume of his voice.

September 10, 2013
It admittedly feels like something of a missed opportunity, with director, Joshua Michael Stern, often more concerned with checking off bullet points than digging into the complexities of its leading man.
September 10, 2013
It reminds me of a similar film, 'The Social Network,' which is the better movie, but these two films tell essentially the same story.

Kutcher bears a striking resemblance to Jobs and manages to embody him in full. It is an often emotional performance that could have very easily been turned into a characterization.

September 6, 2013
Never really digs deep enough into the brilliant and often enigmatic title character. Begs for a documentary treatment.
