Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a film whose plea to the audience resembles Jobs' appeal to the crowd in that iPod-unveiling scene: "Believe this is important and exciting," it asks, "because I say so.""
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"Jobs is the equivalent of a feature-length slow clap."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"The movie is littered with small details of lore that should make Apple fanatics happy."
‑ Ross Miller, The Verge
"This movie would be exponentially better if it were called Twenty-Something Jobs or Jobs, Woz And The First 2 Apples."
‑ Mack Rawden,
"While it may be of interest to some, it's not going to provide any new perspective for those already familiar with Jobs' life."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"The irony is that a man who treasured innovation and sleek, stylish design should be the subject of a film that's so bland and bloated."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"A missed opportunity."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A noble but unworthy effort that will likely disappoint viewers looking for a thoughtful look into the technological genius."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Ashton Kutcher does a very fine job as Jobs, portraying him less as a technological wizard and more as a business visionary who realised his out-of-the-box ideas by surrounding himself with people who were admittedly more talented than he was."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"One can see Kutcher acting, valiantly trying oh-so-hard as his every answer to any requirement for emotional intensity unilaterally comes off as merely shrilly raising the volume of his voice."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Other than people who are mildly curious about the guy who put the smartphone in their pocket and the tablet computer in their knapsack, I'm not sure who "Jobs" was made for."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Like the man it's about, "Jobs" is thin and unassuming, but keeps surprising you with ideas and innovation."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Matt Whiteley's clumsy script attempts to sync Jobs' personal story with the corporate history of his brand but as any affirmed Android/PC users will gladly tell you, syncing with Apple can be problematic at the best of times."
‑ Fiona Williams,
"Ashton Kutcher IS Steve Jobs. You have to give Kutcher credit: He studied his character. That he successfully completed his homework is evidenced in 'Jobs,' a biopic of Apple Inc.'s late genius."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"It admittedly feels like something of a missed opportunity, with director, Joshua Michael Stern, often more concerned with checking off bullet points than digging into the complexities of its leading man."
‑ Cara Nash, FILMINK (Australia)
