Jobs

Jobs, the movie biography of Steve Jobs, is no where near the level of depth of Social Network‘s screenplay was able to accomplish. Jobs really just glides through the several decades of interactions between the main characters. It’s as if the screenwriter, Matt Whiteley, had a set number of points required to tell the story, but didn’t dive below the surface. Though no offense to Ashton Kutcher, who played Steve Jobs, did an impressive job embodying him. From his mannerisms to the way he talked, Kutcher pulled it off. But what I found to be off putting was the whole persona of Steve Jobs on the big screen. He acted like an inconsiderate jerk who alienates the majority of his friends along the way. If you’re interested in watching a two hour movie about the history of apple then this is the movie for you. Unfortunately, don’t be expecting too much more out of the film.
