Everyone knows his name but what is the true story behind the man? Inventor, innovator, iconoclast; Steve Jobs was all of these and more. Now find out the gripping truth behind this 21st Century icon as celebrities and leaders in the world of business talk candidly about the seismic impact that he has had on our entire way of life. Discover what drove the man both personally and professionally, the obstacles he had to overcome and the story behind his final battle that would leave the world bereft of a very modern genius. His vision was singular, his focus unshakeable, and in this unmissable film we see how one man would change the way we all communicate… forever. This is Steve Jobs, a visionary genius.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just read wikipedia September 27, 2012
By ConFu
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This documentary provides absolutely no information that can't be found on Wikipedia. You have interviews with seemingly random people (or random Apple fans) who speaks opinion and speculation. Most of the footage can be found on YouTube. I could've easily done a better documentary than this. If you want a better documentary, watch "One Last Thing". That one will go through Steve Jobs life but also through the eyes of his former colleagues and friends. You'll get a better picture of who Steve Jobs was including his faults (he is known to be a tyrant among his co-workers for example). The film ("One Last Thing") won't tell you everything but at least it gives you a better idea than this crappy movie ("Visionary Genius").

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible waste of time... October 9, 2012
Format:DVD
I actually became angry while watching this documentary. Not because the information is totally wrong or that it isn't a little bit entertaining, but because of the terrible quality of the film. As a previous review mentioned, this looks like a high school project that deserved a "C". The information isn't quite in order which can be a little confusing. There are interviews with random people who really have no business speaking on Steve Jobs life. On top of that the interviews are seemingly placed in random points of the film. At one point the narrator began speaking on Jobs' break from Next to spend time with his family in the 1990s and then the film jumped to an interview with a woman on the street who was speaking about the iPad. This happens on multiple occasions in the film. That on top of the annoying grey border and the use of Moves Like Jagger, some Adele song, and Viva La Vida as background music, makes me wish I had never hit play.

1.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating to watch - poorly told story October 9, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The documentary relies on many clips from interviews with people for whom there is only a vague reference to why they should be given any credence at all - perhaps the director found them off the street. For example, one woman whose interview is extensively used is just named on screen as Hilda Baker with no explanation of her role in Steve Jobs life or why she would have any insight. The film utilizes extensive stock clips to support their story, but are so sloppy as to frequently use anachronous ones for example an iphone when chronilogically they are only at the stage of the first ipod. It seems to me that 1/2 of the movie is made up of video clips that add no value to the production.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst documentary I've ever seen September 25, 2012
By jr
Format:DVD
I may have just watched a high school project. Terrible editing, terrible interviews, and barely researched "information" all narrated by a British actor who sounded nearly asleep by the end of it. A bad tabloid style exploitation piece based on nothing more than narrating the Wikipedia page for Steve Jobs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Probably the WORST documentary I've ever seen. February 28, 2013
Format:DVD
The production value on this documentary is so bad, I'm honestly embarrassed for the people who made the film. It honestly feels like a 6th grader would have made a better film.

However, production value aside, the most embarrassing part of the film is the fact that the writers clearly didn't actually know what they were talking about. There is nothing new or interesting about Jobs in this film -- it feels like they just read his Wikipedia page. In fact, their lack of understanding of the subject matter is pretty apparent when they illustrate that they don't know how to say the name of the Mac OSX operating system. They fundamentally misunderstand simple technology and say things that just aren't true -- like when they state that the iPhone runs on OSX.

If I were the filmmakers, I'd pull this film. It's that bad. It's that embarrassing for them. Worst of all, everyone knows it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply a horrible REMINDER of who Steve Jobs was. June 11, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It seems the producers of this film simply wanted to capitalize on the explosions of Job's bio after his passing.
This doc neither presents new information, nor does it present old info in an interesting view (talk even less of style).

In short, I concur with the more recent reviews of this doc. I'll just add this: the horribly framed interviews of the numerous (obvious) Australians burned what little credibility this doc was hoping to uphold.

BTW, I think the first two reviews were written by friends of the producers, if not by themselves.
