You could call this a crowd-pleasing Hollywood ending. You could also call it genocide.

jOBS demonstrates the difference between a great impression and an inspired performance.

Many of the creative details are embellished or reduced to montages in favor of a series of inspirational speeches.

Forget by the numbers, this biopic is practically binary in its formulaic creation.

Jobs feels more like a movie about Apple than the man who founded it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 28, 2013
Good performance by Kutcher as Steve Jobs but the movie glosses over his life.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
August 26, 2013
The picture's most significant problem is simply that it's pointlessly truncated. It's the truth, just not the whole truth. Stern and Whiteley's is a story about big business when it should've been a story about big ideas.

It's not at all flattering, yet it still adheres to the most tired elements of similar projects that have come before it. jOBS is the Apple III of biopics.

not a perfect film, but it is a good and worthwhile one, distilling the essence of its eponymous subject and his times

The suits never understood him, but I don't think ham-fisted director Joshua Michael Stern knows all that much about his subject either...

Essentially a pretty standard "captains of industry" drama.
August 23, 2013
Jobs' remarkable life and persistently prickly personality are simply too complicated and his roller-coaster ride to the top of the personal-computing business is simply too crammed with improbable side trips and switchbacks to distill into 128 minutes.

August 22, 2013
There is just about enough to entertain, but Stern's paint-by-numbers approach does little to celebrate Jobs' most famous injunction to "Think Different".
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 22, 2013
For a film so slavish to glorifying the history of Apple, it doesn't do the memory of Jobs many favors.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
August 22, 2013
A serviceable little amuse-bouche [which] trades readily on the tremendous native interest that attaches itself to and drives this story, given the significant role Apple products play in so many modern lives.

August 21, 2013
Seeing these seminal moments recreated onscreen is certainly entertaining, but the filmmakers at times rely a little to heavily on an all too reverent approach to Jobs the man.

Kutcher isn't bad, but this bio-pic doesn't dig deep
August 19, 2013
Jobs creates a powerful narrative in Steve Jobs' life and conveys the profound value of innovation, including the cost of such a drive.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
August 18, 2013
...it's ultimately difficult to understate the movie's colossal failure as both a biopic and a piece of entertainment.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 18, 2013
Highlighted by Kutcher's compelling performance, this captures Jobs' mercurial, irritating personality, marching to his own beat.
