Jobs

Critics Consensus

An ambitious but skin-deep portrait of an influential, complex figure, Jobs often has the feel of an over-sentimentalized made-for-TV biopic.

Movie Info

College dropout Steve Jobs (Ashton Kutcher), together with his friend, technical whiz-kid Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad), sparks a revolution in home computers with the invention of the Apple 1 in 1976. Built in the garage of Jobs' parents, the device -- and the subsequent formation of Apple Inc. -- have changed the world for all time. Though he is viewed as a visionary, Jobs' tenure as Apple's leader is a rocky one, leading to his eventual ouster from the company he co-founded.

Critic Reviews for Jobs

All Critics (134) | Top Critics (46) | Fresh (37) | Rotten (97)

  • A Steve Jobs biopic steeped in the mediocrity its subject despised.

    August 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    September 6, 2017 | Rating: D- | Full Review…
  • 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 23, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's an entirely wooden and bland representation of the tech icon, but for Apple devotees, it'll still have an appeal as an informative biopic.

    August 16, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a film whose plea to the audience resembles Jobs' appeal to the crowd in that iPod-unveiling scene: "Believe this is important and exciting," it asks, "because I say so."

  • The irony is that a man who treasured innovation and sleek, stylish design should be the subject of a film that's so bland and bloated.

    I know that this wasn't well-received, but I found it interesting nonetheless. I like how it compliments the other Steve Jobs film really well, telling different aspects of his life. I can't say that anyone would like this, but I enjoyed it, mostly because of the subject matter.

    No one is going to be renting this for 2.99. It was a mess. The beginning feels rushed, and the middle feels drawn out. It makes Steve Jobs look like a terrible person to close to his death, completely leaves out his major competitors, and has bizarre nothing to do with anything sequences like him spinning around in a grassy field for 5 minutes. Kutcher looks exactly like him though.

    A fascinating biopic about one of the most influential men of our time, Jobs is the story of Apple Computers founder Steve Jobs. The story follows his early days in college and the creation of Apple, along with his struggle to build and maintain control of his company. It's a compelling tale about the corrupting influence of ambition and the price of genius. Ashton Kutcher gives an especially good performance, and is backed up by a strong supporting cast. Jobs is an uncompromising look into a figure that changed how we look at technology.

    At some levels, it works and would have worked, but it fails in the certain cliches that befall too many contemporary, commercialized films. To read the book is better.
