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.

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.

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.

This is really a sort of 'Apple begins' movie, with Jobs framed as the unlikely founder of the world's richest company - eventually
September 4, 2013
Kutcher is surprisingly good - a little mannered at times - but delivers the essence of the man, or at least the extensively researched character that scriptwriter Matt Whiteley presents
August 23, 2013
not a perfect film, but it is a good and worthwhile one, distilling the essence of its eponymous subject and his times

August 23, 2013
Essentially a pretty standard "captains of industry" drama.
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.

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
Highlighted by Kutcher's compelling performance, this captures Jobs' mercurial, irritating personality, marching to his own beat.

The filmmakers make an honest effort to show the life of Steve Jobs. A script by a more matured scribe could have helped "Jobs" reach its potential.

Along the way, we learn Steve Jobs was a jerk (A really big jerk! A really big jerky jerk-faced jerk!).

August 16, 2013
Terrific dramatization of Apple founder Steve Jobs' rise from inspired, art-inclined hippie to corporate mogul and King of Cool delivers "Mac"-nificently and should gratify everyone from die-hard geeks to gawkers curious about entrepreneurial success.
August 16, 2013
Does a fantastic job of giving us a portrait of who Steve Jobs was, but it fails to do it with a critical eye. Kutcher gives us one of the best performances of 2013.

Like the man it's about, "Jobs" is thin and unassuming, but keeps surprising you with ideas and innovation.

He was a charismatic leader, and the greatest salesman the industry ever saw.

It contains some of the most inspiring, moving, goosebump-inducing moments, scenes and speeches that I've seen thus far this year, but also some truly cringeworthy ones. It's as though two different creative teams made the film, and only one was good.
