Jobs(2013)

Although he had many of the mannerisms and the body language of Steve Jobs down, I found it hard to think of the main actor as anyone but Ashton Kutcher. This led me to wonder if they would have been better off going with a lesser known actor. The movie was, for the most part, boring. Many times I found myself shifting restlessly in my seat and wondering when the movie was going to end. Whether the story is based on true life or not, it is up to the writer and film makers to find a personal story-line, an arc on which to hang the film. In this, the movie failed miserably. Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999), made when Steve Jobs was still alive, was a better film. Jobs is barely worth renting at full price. (C-)
