As a huge Apple “FanBoy”, I was somewhat underwhelmed. I thought it was “OK” — Entertaining and a fair representation of Steve Jobs early/mid career at Apple. However, there were holes in the timeline of Jobs’ life — and didn’t get past the iPOD era… So, no footage about the creation of the iPhone, iPad, modern Macs, etc.
I DID think that Ashton Kutcher’s acting was pretty damn good… And, seeing his photo on the side of young Steve Jobs at the end of the movie – WOW you see A LOT of similarities.
I actually think “The Pirates of Silicon Valley” is a better movie:
- much more entertaining and possibly more a more complete story of the ‘early’ days of Apple Computers.
If you are looking for “Facts”, I say pickup a copy of Walter Isaacson’s book, “Steve Jobs”:
Also, Steve Wozniak’s “iWOZ” book is Woz’s side of the story:
This is also a great documentary about Steve from LPB:
I could go on…. I’m sure there are some die-hard Apple fans that will LOVE this movie; thats cool. I just didn’t leave the theater “Feeling” good or more connected to Apple/Jobs. I say it’s worth the 10 bucks to checkout.
iWill gives it a C+
