Thoroughly enjoyed this film and the insights it showed. As to its accuracy, only those on the inside would know for sure, but it certainly presents as plausible. Some of the scenes are memorable, such as Gates being castigated by Jobs for pirating his OS, and Gates negotiating to supply an OS he didn't yet have.

Probably the best film adaptation of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates as it really portrays their lives to a good extend. according to people who grew up with them. Overall, Check it out if you are interested on either of them.

The only reason for this rating is my interest in the subject but putting it to Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie this was just an amateur work. Very bad design was made by inserting comedy elements and covering unnecessary life portions.
Overall I would recommend it only to people who are interested in the history of personal computers.

This is a very under-appreciated movie about Steve Jobs. According to the real Wozniak, Noah Wyle who plays Jobs in this movie is a perfect spot-on. And here I thought Mike Fassbender did well. :D

A not to be under rated film, Pirates Chronicles the early days of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs in a fast paced light made for tv faux documentary style, if you're intrested in the actual history of Apple and Microsoft this film remains the most accurate. The downside is that it was made in 1999, and portrays Jobs as a loosing figure. Which after the 2000s is not neccesairly accurate today.

that bill gates, what a bastard.

Seriously though, a pretty decent stab at Job's life story and explaining how the race for the PC ACTUALLY HAPPENED. The best I've seen.

A great dramatization of the birth of apple and Microsoft from the creators perspectives. You feel like you get a good look at there personalities and reasons for making themselves into the men they became without the filmmaker condoning or condemning there actions. Didn't even recognize Antony Michael hall, kind of an underrated actor. Its so fun to see all the amazing technology's that certain company's and individuals though was worthless and ended up changing the world. A great mix of learning and entertainment.

A nice move-along film that briefly describes some of the biggest moments that turned both Apple and Microsoft into a couple of the top most leading companies in the world. Microsoft may be the biggest when it comes to their computers and Apple when it comes to their smartphones, but Apple was rightfully the first to actually invent the whole business of the personal computer/device practically (and this film especially is one that proves it). As an Apple fan and a Microsoft semi-fan, this is one good movie.

When [real life] Steve Wozniak says this movie pretty much shows how everything happened, nothing you can say about this movie has Any Value!

Nearly every attempt at humor is cringe-worthy, but the story is never uninteresting, and some good performances were turned in.

Should've seen this before Jobs, informative piece of history (that they should start teaching in school curriculums) flicked. And like Mark Zuckerberg mentioned " You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies". As Picasso said and quoted a lot in this movie, "Good artists copy and great artists steal".
