    Jobs is a one-man show that needed to go for broke and doesn't. My guess is that Jobs would give it a swat. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

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

    One thing it doesn't do is offer a revealing look at the mercurial entrepreneur. The movie that bears his name settles on a blandly superficial treatment of a deeply complex man. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Jobs is a just-the-facts - and fiddling-with-the-facts - dramatization, forgoing any kind of deeper psychological exploration of the man and his motivations, his demons and dreams. show more

    Entertaining and smart, with a great, career 2.0 performance from Ashton Kutcher. show more

    The filmmakers do fall into the trap of overly sentimentalizing a widely beloved public figure who represents an enormous cultural significance. At the same time, however, they keep the movie frequently engaging. show more

    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 Jobs' speech and movements, which he does quite well. Whether mimicry qualifies as characterization is a question for Jobs' viewers to answer for themselves. show more

    It’s a competently made, traditional biopic about a man who disdained those terms. show more

    It’s superficial, but that plays into the hands of the film’s star, Ashton Kutcher. show more

    The dialogue comes straight out of "The Benny Goodman Story." That look, someone says to a staring, pausing Kutcher, "tells me you're on to something big." Nobody talks in this movie; everyone speechifies or take turns sloganing one another to death. show more

    Only thing they didn\'t talk about was how bad Apple was with its software and how Jobs stole most of it from other more intelligent people.

    The critics missed on this one. It may have played somewhat loose with the historical facts but it is hard to separate Jobs from Apple and Apple from Jobs. I found it generally compelling if a bit long here and there. It\'s a smart movie and very entertaining.

    I had no idea that he was one mean \"you know what\". It certainly came through.

    My wife and I absolutely love Jobs movie. Kutcher did a great job portraying Steve Jobs. The intensity of Jobs\' passion and visionary for APPLE computer was so incredible. We do miss Steve so.

    A brilliant portray of Steve Jobs. My husband and I did not want the movie to end. This type of movie puts out such a positive message to all people in the world that if you believe in yourself -- believe that you can change the world -- and have the courage and commitment to pursue it, you can do it. Hope they make a sequel Jobs-2 soon.

    I thought Ashton Kutcher was brilliant. They did a good job portraying Jobs\' personality quirks, his often beyond-abrasive and rude personality, but most importantly his brilliance! You\'re never going to get every detail perfectly accurate when you\'re telling a real-life story. This was well done

    Why don\'t we have more of this type of movie? If the critics\' choice matters; why don\'t they consider the immense value of exposing more audiences to the concept of \"doing what it takes\".....and without violence at all? I\'m in favor of having young students see this movie everywhere.

    Saw this movie tonight....it was SO much better than the critics have said. I really can\'t imagine what they have against this movie, unless it\'s just a bias against Ashton Kutcher. That\'s too bad, because a lot of people who might have gone to see this movie and enjoyed it will stay away.
