I really don't see what the negative criticism surrounding this movie is all about; it was pretty good. Whether or not the movie is accurate in portraying Steve Jobs, I don't know. Did it gloss over some important things in Steve's life? Maybe. But I do know is that this is a compelling drama film and Ashton Kutcher's performance was good. Liked seeing Steve Job's humble beginnings. I don't think the film is biased or "just another piece of Apple advertising"; on the contrary, it shows the positive and negative aspects of Steve's personality and life. I wish the film had covered more of his life, particularly leading up to his death.
Too bad Steve sometimes seems kinda like a **** and an insane perfectionist. (He even refuses to support for or provide for his own daughter!)
If you liked this review, read my other ones on a wide variety of movies and TV shows and mark this review as helpful.
Ultimately, Jobs is a prosaic but not unaffecting tribute to the virtues of defiance, nonconformity, artistry, beauty, craftsmanship, imagination and innovation, qualities it only intermittently reflects as a piece of filmmaking.
This is far from the bomb some would have envisaged, but neither is it the character illumination one would wish for. Jobs appears so consumed by his work here that little else mattered in his life. That may be true, but we're left none the wiser as to what made the man tick, beyond what we already know.
Ashton kutcher did an amazing performance. The movie itself could be better directed. Yet it is still inspiring and amazing. Kutcher by far did the best performance of his career and showed that he has a great potential.
Jobs isn't a bad biopic on Steve Jobs, especially considering we got another biopic on him a few years later. This one is far from dismal and Ashton Kutcher definitely surprised me here. Delivering easily the best performance of his career, its just sad that the direction and screenplay fail to do the same
Jobs isn't the best biopic on Steve Job's life, but it isn't a dismal attempt. It lacks good narrative in the beginning, but by the middle parts you might even start to like it a little. Ashton Kutcher has his moments of great acting, but they are mostly overshadowed by his lack of emotional depth in the character.
When the beginning of the movie, it looks like the story line just have nice work. But go more and more, the movie just like run out of control so haphazardly.
Let me give the parable, there are the number "1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 15, 74, 79, 99, 111, 131, 133, ...... and so on".
Movie well-run when 1-9, when go to 15 I still can tolerate it. But when go more (when the number as far as 74 and so on), it feels like, "Oh God, help me. I wasted my time for this, Why with all this people? Why can't people just think?"
All I learned from this interpretation was that Steve Jobs as absolutely brilliant but hated shoes and could really be a huge jerk If you aren't interested in computers then this movie is very dry and lacks entertainment. All I could think about while watching the movie was that I forgot my iPod at my parents house It really did nothing for me. I can see a demographic of people really enjoying this movie, I certainly wasn't one of them.
