If you want a biography and a film most people can easily digest the Ashton Kutcher film is superior. This film has some aspects for the technology based audience as well as those who are curious about the unusual father-daughter relationship that Jobs maintained. Steve Jobs is portrayed as an intense individual who is a perfectionist, condescending and difficult to work with. I think I said that politely.
This film won't have universal appeal but had great performances.
Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
I have now viewed the entire movie and it is really a tale of Steve Jobs growing within himself. Through his disappointments with the launch of the MacIntosh and NEXT computers to the successful launch of the iMac and the defining system that made Apple the force in Silicon Valley, this was all about Steve needing and finally attaining the control he needed both in his company and his personal life with his daughter Lisa. I still prefer the Ashton Kutcher version but Michael Fassbender was brilliant.
Most movies about Steve Jobs are biographical, chronological but director Danny Boyle and write Aaron Sorkin take a different spin with this movie and tell the story of Steve Jobs by focusing on just three pivotal points in his life, The product launch of the Macintosh in 1984, the product launch of NeXT Computer in 1988 and the launch of the iMac in 1998.
Sorkin's writing is dizzying at times but actors Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) Kate Winselt (Joanna Hoffman), Seth Rogan (Steve Wozniak) and the rest of the cast all deliver exceptional performances. Fassbender and Winselt were both nominated for Academy Awards for their performances and while they didn't win the Oscar's, Winslet did take home a Golden Glove for Best Performance in a Supporting Role. How good was Winselt? ... after watching the movie with my wife and seeing the credits appear she remarked 'That was Kate Winslet', she had watched the whole movie and didn't know the role of Joanna Hoffman was being played by Kate.
When I saw the previews for this movie I didn't think I'd like it, mainly because I couldn't get over how different Michael Fassbender looked compared to the real Steve Jobs. After watching the movie for only a couple minutes I quickly let go of my predisposition and Fassbender transformed into Steve Jobs almost instantly in my mind.
The Steve Jobs movie was generally liked by critics but was pulled from theatres quickly after it underachieved at the box office.
Now that the movie is available on bluray, DVD and online streaming it's definitely worth watching.Read more ›
