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.

Its wierd when stars can mimick evil geniuses, pretty good but everything else you wonder? Ashton delivers a good performance for a computer geek?

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 film-makers and actors, but at the expense of a more complex and accurate depiction of the real Jobs ?)

I hadn't expected to enjoy this film as much as I did. I find myself wondering what % of it is completely true. It was excellent!

Fair - The path of storytelling taken was that of Jobs' business dealings as opposed to what I was expecting - insights and focus on his products especially the iPod/iPhone/iPad. I thought Kutcher did a fine job (pardon the pun) characterizing Jobs.
