New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
Entertaining and smart, with a great, career 2.0 performance from Ashton Kutcher.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Jobs is a just-the-facts - and fiddling-with-the-facts - dramatization, forgoing any kind of deeper psychological exploration of the man...

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
It’s superficial, but that plays into the hands of the film’s star, Ashton Kutcher.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
It’s a competently made, traditional biopic about a man who disdained those terms.

So the principal point of controversy involved here is not Jobs himself, but Ashton Kutcher, who plays him. The actor's approach is to ape...

At its best, it's a good picture, and at its worst, it's almost good.

Where's the Rest of the Movie?

By MedRed
The critics were overly harsh on this movie. Jobs is totally watchable and enjoyable. Ashton Kutcher nails the look and mannerisms of Steve Jobs all the way down to his awkward gait. Jobs doesn't...

A Little to Disappoint Everyone

By danielvlee
As a fan of Steve Jobs, I tended to enjoy watching this film; however, the story is not very well developed, skipping over vast portions of Steve Jobs' life, so the average movie goer will likely...

What a disappointment. There was great potential for this movie and it missed the mark. Steve Jobs was a passionate visionary, unafraid to express anger and high expectations of his employees. The...

Somewhere in between so-so and go

I loved this movie. It was fascinating to watch how the technology we take for granted and use everyday was invented. Ashton Kutcher becomes Steve Jobs. He walked like him and talked like him, but...
