Consensus: An ambitious but skin-deep portrait of an influential, complex figure, Jobs often has the feel of an over-sentimentalized made-for-TV biopic.

Dana Stevens

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."

Too often the audience is taken out of the scene with thoughts of" Hey, isn't that Ashton Kutcher?" simply because the portrayal comes off too contrived.

Like the man it's about, "Jobs" is thin and unassuming, but keeps surprising you with ideas and innovation.

While entertaining, the film doesn't achieve the ultimate goal of Steve Jobs' work: to make the things that matter beautiful and to find beauty in the small moments.

At some levels, it works and would have worked, but it fails in the certain cliches that befall too many contemporary, commercialized films. To read the book is… More
