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.

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.

Gets points for ambition, but ultimately feels like a made-for-TV movie mistakenly playing at the multiplex.

The history of a company isn't as compelling as the history of a person, especially one as complex, innovative and influential as Steve Jobs.

Jobs is nothing but a collection of moments, with no particular aim, no attempt to really explain the man, even reductively.

Hollywood might someday design a sleek, prestige biopic worthy of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. For now, he's gotten a Dell.

The poverty of [Kutcher's] skills as a serious actor is on full display.

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.

A passionate attempt, Jobs ultimately lacks the polish and 'greatness' that Steve Jobs routinely aimed to deliver in his own products.

Jobs blows.

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.

A junior high term paper about Steve Jobs, using Apple's marketing materials as the main source, answering the unasked question, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MYTHOS?!

It's an entertaining film that could have been as riveting as The Social Network but ends up being fun-on-cable during a lazy weekend afternoon.

Didn't this man have a family? Battle cancer? Innovate more than just home computers?

August 22, 2013
For a film so slavish to glorifying the history of Apple, it doesn't do the memory of Jobs many favors.
