    I usually write a pretty lengthy review for the films me and my wife see, but this time I'm going to be short and sweet (because the next 5 words perfectly surmise my thoughts on it)...

    This movie was absolutely terrible.

    The acting was horrific, the story was some weird "super hero" like telling of a story that could have been epic if they had just made it interesting instead of trying to make it so dramatic. Half way through the film, i found myself wondering how the producers could have possibly thought someone would walk away from the experience feeling satisfied. Words like travesty come to mind...a COMPLETE waste of time.

    What a shame.

    The movie is a collection of moments, with no particular aim, no attempt to really explain the man, even reductively. Was a collection of greatest hits.

    Pro tip.

    Movies that open/lead Sundance(film festival) are great movies, worth your time.

    However movies that close Sundance are usually terrible and not worth your time.

    This film closed Sundance.


    Also there will be another Jobs movie based on the book. This movie has better writers and is due out next year. The top writer is Sorkin(I totally butchered that spelling).

    There was an article I saw on reddit that I think hit the nail on the head when it comes to perfectly simple reviews of this movie...

    "The film "Jobs" is the quintessential "Steve Jobs for Dummies" book. Enough content to inform anyone watching, but not enough to call it "accurate".

    I whole heartedly agree.

    I heard that it doesn't even show the keynotes of the ipad, iphone or ipod touch, neither does it talk about his last days?
    I would have liked it if it went deep in to the last of his days showing how the iphone 4 was born and how he passed the torch to tim cook.

    Both! I use Alien Blue on iPhone and iPad, as it has performed as the better app over those available.

    Okay. Thanks, Sean. I actually float back & forth between Alien Blue and Ruby for Reddit.

    I was a fan of Jobs and loved Apple but lets get real, this movie should never have been meant for theater. I won't waste my time. I read his book. That was satisfying enough for me.

    It was a typical money grab, trying to cash in on the passing of Mr Jobs. Unfortunately, way too many problems with the film, the production, etc... this one should be a poster child for "screwing the pooch".

    Lifetime Original...at least then the standard would have been lowered enough to make sense of the mess.

    Good or bad, accurate or inaccurate... I'm looking forward to catching this movie... if for nothing else, to compare my knowledge of Jobs vs. the reality depicted on-screen. I just hope I don't come out of the theatre angry.

    What's depicted on screen is not reality...

    I find it rather ironic that the master of "distortion reality"is getting Jobbed so badly in a "biopict".

    Seeing the movie posters of Ashton Kutcher sitting on that desk supposedly Steve Jobs
    was enough for me not wanting to go watch it. I don't buy him as Steve Jobs at all. I pro-
    bably already felt negative about it because I don't like Ashton Kutcher as an actor at all.
    AT ALL. I think he's really, really bad. These reviews don't surprise me in the least. I'll
    wait to get it on Redbox for a buck.

    I agree. It left off prior to the introduction of some of the most defining products in Apple's history. I love the historical value of how the company came to be but it left me wanting more. I took my son to the movie (we are both Apple geeks). When the movie ended we looked at each other and said "that's the end" lol! We both were hoping they would go into the creation of the iPod, iPhone and iPad. Hoping for a more complete movie in the future.

    Wouldn't it be cool if it were like that? And they at least showed the more revolutionary products like the iPhone and iPad? Also would have been awesome if Ashton kutcher as Steve jobs gave us an iPhone 5s keynote at the end of the movie haha

    I had a hard time believing the movie could be worse than it actually was...if what you just wrote had happened, it would have been so bad that i would have walked out before it ended. The idea of Ashton Kutcher giving the keynote is so laughable to me, I'd classify the film as a comedy at that point.

    It was upsetting to see them not talk much about Jobs as a person, but decided to talk more about the conpany than the person (one of the main people) who made it. Should have been called Apple instead of Jobs.
