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

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.

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

Jobs movie

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...

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...

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...

Kutcher Nails It

By mwomack
Jobs was the most amazing movie. It captures you from the start and holds you until the end. Kutchers portrayal of Jobs is unbelievable. The mannerisms, the unusual gait, the speech are all to be...
