    As docudramas go, Jobs works better as a profile of an innovative company than of the demanding entrepreneur who cofounded it (Apple would have provided a more apt title). Director Joshua Michael Stern opens with the launch of the iPod, a notable development, but not an especially dramatic one, before backtracking to the college dropout days of the oft-barefoot Steve Jobs (Ashton Kutcher), who comes across as more of a ladies' man than a visionary. His electronic expertise, however, leads to a job at Atari, while his friend Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad, whose comic timing enlivens the proceedings) ends up at Hewlett-Packard. When Steve finds out about the personal computer Woz has been working on at home, he sees the chance to revolutionize the industry, so he ropes in some fellow computer fanatics to construct motherboards, secures an investor (Dermot Mulroney), and launches Apple Computers. Meanwhile, his girlfriend (Ahna O'Reilly) informs him that she's pregnant, and he kicks her out. Stern continues to alternate between professional milestones and personal misdemeanors, including Jobs's hiring of marketing mastermind John Sculley (Matthew Modine), his ouster from Apple, and his return to shake things up with the Macintosh. Interesting stuff, except it plays more like a made-for-TV movie than a motion picture, and Kutcher's attempts to stifle his innate charisma come close to caricature. There's historical value here, but Stern never finds a satisfying way to reconcile his subject's contradictory impulses, leading to a catalog of facts and figures without any underlying soul. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

    Product Description

    Ashton Kutcher is Steve Jobs, the iconic Apple innovator and groundbreaking entrepreneur.  This inspiring and entertaining film chronicles Jobs’ early days as a college dropout to his rise as the co-founder of Apple Computer Inc. and forced departure from the company. More than a decade later, Jobs returns and single-handedly sets a course that will turn the once-tiny startup into one of the world’s most valuable companies.  His epic journey blazes a trail that changes technology – and the world – forever. JOBS is a riveting story of a true American visionary, a man who let nothing stand in the way of greatness.  Co-starring Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, J. K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Gets the JOBS done. November 21, 2013
    Format:DVD
    I'm surprised I liked JOBS as much as I did, considering that the reviews surrounding the film were mediocre at best, not to mention that Ashton Kutcher is one of my least favourite actors EVER. Much to my surprise, Kutcher was actually astonishingly good in the title role.

    Take him out, and you are left with a limp, unfocused, poorly paced, and incredibly boring biopic. Put him back in, and you are still left with the above, but with a daring and riveting performance at its centre.

    Now, this is isn't saying much, but this is Kutcher's best performance by about 300%. He absolutely *nails* Steve Jobs's mannerisms - his stooped walk, the way he held his hands in front of him, the way he pursed his lips, etc. He holds surprising gravitas and charisma, and holds up excellently in scenery-chewing moments. The scenes where he brutally rejects the woman he impregnated, and gives Bill Gates a piece of his mind ("And I will make sure you NEVER earn a dollar again, that I don't get 90 cents from!") show a different, extremely competent side of the actor. The material surrounding him might be rote and unfeeling, but Kutcher has steel in his gaze and power in his presence.

    It's a pity then, that JOBS is unfocused in it's storytelling, in need of a damn good edit, uninformative, and rather dull. No really, at times this was one of the most boring films I've ever seen. The scene where Wozniak leaves Apple should have been emotional and heartrending, but nearly put me to sleep. I would rather have had more fun reading up on infections of the large intestine.

    Jobs had scenes that had no impact whatsoever on the film - extraneous, useless scenes that do nothing that bore the audience. 90% of the movie are actors talking quietly (or loudly) to each-other - just talking.

    3.0 out of 5 stars 'Jobs' a flawed, yet informative biopic August 20, 2013
    Format:Blu-ray
    A great many words can be used to describe the late Steve Jobs. Atop the list, you'd probably find innovator and visionary, followed by several harsher words that there's no need to use here. His contributions to the technology industry are undeniable, and while he clearly had a life full of conflict, history will always remember him as the man that started a technology revolution by co-founding the multi-billion dollar company, Apple. Today, a rough estimate projects Apple to be worth in the ballpark of $600-700 billion. And, the odds are (since you're reading this) that you probably own a piece of technology that Steve Jobs oversaw at one point - whether it's an iPhone, iPod, Mac, or one of several other forms of Apple technology. For all his flaws and rocky relationships, Steve Jobs managed to found a company, lose his place in it, and come back to make it bigger and better than ever. These real life events are chronicled in the biopic, Jobs.

    Directed by Joshua Michael Stern (Swing Vote), Jobs stars Ashton Kutcher as the ambitious technology marketer, Steve Jobs. The film begins with Steve Jobs introducing the iPod in 2001, and quickly shifting to his free spiritedness as a young man during his college years. After dropping out, Steve becomes involved with Steve Wozniak - a tech guru that has been working on a personal computer. Together, Jobs and Wozniak - along with a handful of others, begin their quest to build a company, called Apple, from the ground up. After the initial success of Apple, business and egos come into play as Jobs struggles to find his way in his own company. J.K. Simmons, Matthew Modine, and Lukas Hass also star in supporting roles.

    At first, Ashton Kutcher feels like an odd choice to portray Steve Jobs.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Suggested, rather than recommended, viewing December 7, 2013
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I showed this film to my movie group composed mainly of women (one man besides myself) over age 62, and it did attract a good turnout with nobody leaving during the movie. However, it's not a great movie and won't likely get any Oscar or Golden Globe nominations although Ashton Kutcher does a surprisingly good job in the title role.

    This really is more about Apple than it is specifically about Jobs. It remains interesting for the best part of the film. But it won't be memorable. From me, it gets a suggestion rather than a recommendation

    Ashton Kutcher did a pretty creditable job but there were just too many shots of him looking smug and self satisfied. Much of the time it felt like watching a hammed up caricature of Steve Jobs. Also, I know they cannot stuff too much into a movie, and they wanted to cover the early days and the return of Steve Jobs to Apple after his having been evicted and after having founded NEXT. But it was nonetheless a let down to see the movie end there, and not cover the period during which he launched iPod, iPhone. I felt sad watching this: Steve Jobs deserved a whole lot better. Read Isaacson's bio and give this movie a pass.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring April 1, 2014
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    I found this movie to be inspiring for me to go after my dream in life. I would not treat people the way he did, I believe it can be done and take care of the people who helped you to get there. It is worth watching, I love true stories.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Ultimately satisfying April 1, 2014
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    If you're looking for an artfully done presentation of Jobs' life, you'll enjoy this. It does take a few liberties with the true story for the sake of dramatics, but that's only to be expected. If it's Apple history you're wanting, or a closer look at Steve's life, I would point to Steven Levy's excellent "Insanely Great" and Jeffrey Young's "The Journey Is the Reward". To his credit, Ashton Kutcher does a startlingly good job at capturing the essence and mannerisms of Steve Jobs without coming off as a caricature.
