A riveting story of a true American visionary, a man who let nothing stand in the way of greatness. It chronicles the iconic innovator and entrepreneur's early days. He was a college dropout who co-founded Apple Computer Inc. and was then forced to leave. More than a decade later, Jobs returns and single-handedly sets a course that will turn the once-tiny startup into one of the world's most valuable companies. His epic journey blazes a trail that changes technology-and the world-forever.

I thought Kutcher did a tremendous job portraying Steve Jobs.
I also watched the PBS presentation of Jobs 1st. There were many comments from the people he worked with ... but the movie showed more of his personality ... while the PBS had more comments from the people who knew him.
Both were worth watching.

I read the book when it came out and saw the movie. He was ruthless in the book and he's ruthless in the movie. It's unfortunate that his way of getting things done was telling people off and how bad their work was. I wonder if it was a reflection of how bad he felt about himself, because that's usually the case.
One thing people always leave out is that Woz was the one with the programming skills and the grunt of the work, but Jobs vision is what drew people. I rather have someone that's not going to belittle my work and talk to me in a condescending way just because he feels he can.

It was quite long. Not exactly the most compelling story, but if you're an Apple fan it probably doesn't matter.

If you have yet to read Jobs' biography or watched this movie, do the movie first.
I read before I watched and was somewhat disappointed.

This brilliant film was an excellent, interesting portrayal of a software type creative dude Steve Jobs, taking the computer to a new level with his friends, and having to convince the business world and some workers, of what was thought of as impossible.

A wonderful 'insider' portrayal of Steve Jobs.
(However, this bio-drama tends towards the 'Faustian',.. and I can't help but wonder if this may serve the needs of the film-makers and actors,.. but at the expense of a more complex and accurate depiction of the real Steve Jobs ?)

Very accurate biograhpy depicted onto film. Kutcher does an amazing job of acting as Jobs. One thing, what i don't get is that in 2001 he had gray hair, and in 1995-97 (When the first iMac came out (imac not Macintosh)) he had all brown hair.

Looks they cannot find an actor to be like Jobs in his 40s and 50s.

Decent movie with good acting. There may be 10 minutes at the end of the movie that depicts a likeable Jobs!

Cliff notes movie of Jobs biography. Kutcher does a decent job mimicking Jobs. I read a long biography on Jobs and they got most of it right with the highlights, but it still felt kind of flat. I don't think they captured Jobs passion or how much of a pompous jerk he was. It would have been better if they focused on the end of his life when he got more self reflective about what is important in life. That would have been compelling and much more powerful.
