It's thinly layered, only depicts Steve Jobs as an uptight hard-ass, and fails to highlight how influential he was in real life. When Ashton Kutcher is the best thing about your movie, you know you're in trouble.

Actually not nearly as bad as I was expecting. Though I think Ashton Kutcher is still a very questionable choice to portray one of the most influential and technological geniuses of our times, at least they had an excellent supporting cast (from Josh Gad as Steve Wozniak to Dermot Mulroney as Mike Markkula and many, many more) - and it also had a surprisingly good soundtrack (maybe a bit cliche, but good). I'm sure they could have gone a lot deeper, but for what it is (a Steve Jobs biopic) it does an adequate job.

They did an incomplete job with "jOBS"

I expected "jOBS" to be a long stretched commercial for Apple, instead of a sketch of the founder of this quirky product. This wasn't entirely true, but it was close. I wonder how much input Jobs himself had in this film. Or was the script drafted without consultation of himself?

The disadvantage of a biography is that if the person portrayed is not part of your interest, you're probably going to find this a bland and boring movie. If I would watch a biographical movie about the driving force behind the Tupperware story, I 'd probably fall asleep and look at it disinterested. Obviously since I'm working in the IT sector, "Jobs " kept me in its grip. I saw the rise of the famous PC. I've been through it all : programming with a punch card machine, Winchester disks, C64 and C128, using …

A biography of the late Steve Jobs (Ashton Kutcher), the brainchild of Apple. The acting ability of Kutcher fails to make an impression of such an indelible iconic figure. Lacks sufficient background development, the soundtrack was fair and the timelines/events felt rushed. Pirates of SIlicon Valley was way more entertaining and authentic compared to this biography drama. This picture showed more of the business/corporate aspects of the company and people willing to do everything for personal gain but lacks enough history for the figures presented. It had some noteworthy moments and believable sets, if only it showed more depth and entertainment value than showing the negative traits of a genius that made an impact in the technology industry.
