Getting a biopic right isn't easy, and there will always be haters. But whatever people say, this is entertaining.

Yes, it sometimes feels like a TV movie, but what's the problem with that? TV is all the rage right now. And yes, sometimes the dialogue, scenes, and acting gets a little ropey, but so what, it's easy to follow. I'd rather have something straightforward than a pretentious Christopher Nolan film any day. As for historical accuracy, it's roughly there. If I wanted the facts, I could just hit up Wikipedia.

If you like Apple, or Jobs, or simply just like being inspired, you can't go wrong with this. As Steve might have said himself, "It just works".

Ashton Kutcher plays the part of Steve Jobs very well and the Director has done a good job of physically matching the other actors with their namesakes. Glad I listened to the audiobook first though, since this gave me the full story. Had I not done so, I'm not sure the film would have adequately portrayed the changes and politics in Steve Job's life for me to get the full picture. Definitely a film for Apple and Steve Job fans - my elderly parents didn't find it that interesting....

What really stands out about this film is how good Ashton Kutcher is. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I feel the film was let down by it's script. But generally this is a great film. Well worth your time.

I'm a die hard Apple fan and there's probably a fair bit of creative licence in this film but I like Ashton Kutcher's performance and
if you love Apple then it's an interesting film.

If you've read Walter Isaacson's authorised biography you'll feel slightly let down by the film. It misses out a lot of Jobs' life which is quite important to understand his character. Aston Kutcher's impression of Jobs is okay, but he does this funny walk which seems completely false. It fails to capture the scale of Jobs' legacy.

great movie for any tech fan or people who know the story behind how jobs was fired from his own company. has to be one of the best films i have seen this year. kutcher does a great job of playing the late steve jobs picking up on the way he walks and some little habits he had one his best roles. you may also consider pirates of silicon vally also shows the microsoft side of the story. all in all a great watch.

"Jobs" (2013 release; 122 min.) is a biopic about the rise and fall (and rise again) of Steve Jobs. As the movie opens, Jobs is introducing a new product called iPod to the Apple employees in 2001. After that the movie kicks back to 1974 as we see Jobs at Reed College (even though apparently he isn't officially enrolled). It's not long before Jobs and Wozniak are working on a new product out of Jobs parents' garage, the humble beginning of what would become the iconic company that is Apple.

Several comments: first, the movie is in a sense a very traditional bio-pic, and I am okay with that as the story that is being told is so compelling that we don't need a lot of extra drama or glitz thrown in for good measure. Highlights of the movie for me were the scenes leading up to Jobs' removal from the very company that he started (with Wozniak), and the scene in which Wozniak comes to tell Jobs that he is leaving Apple. Second, heving read about Jobs' reputation as someone of a tyrant to work for/with, the movie does bring some of that to the screen, but overall I think Jobs get quite a favorable treatment here. Third, the bulk of the movie centers around the year 1876 to 1985, with some attention to his return in 1996. Other than the opening scene (set in 2001), there is nothing in there from 1997 on, and thus nothing about Jobs' battle with cancer, and also very little (snippets really) about his personal life. Fourth, Ashton Kutcher plays the role of his life as Steve Jobs. Indeed, Kutcher is entirely believable, right down to the way he walks. Can Kutcher gather some Best Actor Oscar buzz for this? He should! There is a slew of other great performances, including J.K.
