His passion and ingenuity have been the driving force behind the digital age. However his drive to revolutionize technology was sacrificial. Ultimately it affected his family life and possibly his health. In this revealing film we explore the trials and triumphs of a modern day genius, the late CEO of Apple inc. Steven Paul Jobs.
Steve Jobs is the 2nd film about the life of the passed away Apple CEO in the last few years. I didn't see the previous movie, nor am I interested in seeing it, but what interested me in this version is the talent behind the scene. Danny Boyle is one of my favorite directors and Michael Fassbender is always a great leading actor. As expected, the acting performances were great all around and there was nothing bad to say about the directing. Nonetheless, I found the lack of character development, which can be blamed on the screenplay, a problem. While I liked that they focused on the 3 most important events of his life, you can tell this can cause some issues. Overall, I would still recommend Steve Jobs if you are interested in the subject matter.
I already knew Steve Jobs’ backstory, even before the first Jobs film came out. Though I didn’t think the previous movie was the worst of the worst, this one is most definitely way better. Most of the main characters were very well portrayed by Fassbender, Winslet and Daniels though I found some of the other characters underdeveloped for the general public. If you know the story, you can place the supporting characters perfectly but if you don’t it might be hard to connect to them. Furthermore, I think the story was good for the period it was trying to depict. In the end, I believe this is mostly a movie for those who kind of know Jobs’ life, not so much for the broad public, so for me it was great and if you shouldn’t miss it if it interests you.
Steve jobs is the 2nd biopic of, well obviously, Steve Jobs. This time around, the story presents us with a darker period of his life. The whole movie is set between the launch of the Macintosh and the launch of the Macbook and as some may already know this was a very bad period for Apple as a company as well as the period where Steve was voted out of his own company. We get some wonderful acting and directing from everyone involved but the story had it's flaws. It was an interesting one for sure, but not for everyone because at some points we felt the movie expected some background knowledge from the audience which might leave some watchers clueless during the film. Altogether, we can recommend this movie for those interested in the seeing a nice depiction of, at least a part of, the life of Steve Jobs.
