“ Danny Boyle ('Slumdog Millionaire', '127 hours') had to extract the best out of Michael Fassbender and the supporting actors to capture our attention in this one- dimensional biography and with some sharp dialogues, they do have a riveting effect.
“ What a bore, what a waste of time.
“ Even though his writing can get a bit pretentious at times, his style manages to flow very nicely with the material given to Sorkin.
“ It's thought-provoking, intriguing smart and rapid-fire, with plenty of wit, intensity and snappy put-downs.
“ The plot does become repetitive within the three time points where you can sort of guess how each specific third of the movie will move along.
“ Imagine what a fascinating, colorful, and dramatic movie it could have been by also reflecting on the beginning and the end.
“ Too much Fassbender, too much Jobs--tedious--talk talk talk .
“However the film is engaging and I was surprised how good and sometimes dark the lead performance by Michael Fassbender was - I was surprised how pathological Jobs looked in some moments.
“ I left the theater upset, bemused and saddened.
“ Its worth watching more than once actually.
“ I found the movie to be interesting, profiling Steve Jobs as a very intense and not very likable man.
“ But even so, it was riveting to see a film made of 100% talking be so exciting from beginning to end.
“ But at midpoint the film gains momentum and gets a bit exciting.
“There is nothing pyrotechnic about this film, in any sense, but it is strong in every sense, constantly engaging, and entertaining for its entire length.
“ There are dozens of things to truly admire about Danny Boyle's new film "Steve Jobs," from its ambition to tell a compelling story about a famous man and the structure in which it decides to tell it.
“ Also seeing the launching of 3 different products was compelling on some level as it is the behind the scenes look at these events that makes up the action.
“ In the final scenes his abrupt and corny conversion into the kind of father who smiles at his daughter rings hollow, but otherwise this is an engaging tale of a flawed human who was both hero and villain to those who knew him best.
“ Aaron Sorkin's screenplay brims with rapid-fire dialogues, memorable lines & engrossing conversations that keep the story on the verge of explosion at all times.
“ Sometimes it gets a bit boring because of all the talking and bickering.
“ Thrilling from beginning to end .
“ In this he shines like the North Star, his boldness and cheek are truly awe inspiring.
“ Snappy Dialogue, brilliant directing and an outstanding performance .
“ Anyone familiar with Sorkin's writing should have a pretty good idea of what to expect in this, namely snappy dialogue and a lot of conversations on the go.
“Really there is no, nor ever was a reason for this movie to exist - redundant, unnecessary, tired, rehashed, just pointless.
“So we get three time frames here, which is clever until it becomes a little contrived.
“ I spent most of the film thinking, "this guy's a jerk - why would I find this entertaining?
“ But this movie Bored me to death.
“ Boring and anti-climactic .
“ The Social Network was crisp, fast-paced, Sorkin at his best, fascinating tale of the explosive rise of Facebook.
“ Although Danny Boyle directed this amazing biopic, the true orchestrator of the film was Aaron Sorkin, who once again delivers a powerful and engaging screenplay.
“ It makes the wordy script more than just conversation; it turns it into an exciting narrative.
“ The whole movie was just plain slow, they don't give you much to explain the scenes that you are watching, and even though it has some real-life based moments.
“ And if you need some photo flashes and an upbeat Google Zeitgeist-like hipster music to keep you on the edge of your seat and fully immersed - then why the hell not?
“ The history of Steve Jobs and of Apple is a story rich with drama, colorful characters, and exciting twists and turns.
“ This film succeeds due to the Boyle's directing and Sorkin's confrontational and intense dialogue that captures and draws the audience in.
“ That being said, the movie plays REALLY long- and until the ending, it's a talky bore.
“ THAT'S how engaging it is.
“No storyline, no flow; the only purpose of this movie is to promote Scully and Woz and defame Jobs.
“ Jobs is an intriguing man with a unique vision who can't seem to balance his personal relationships with his creative genius.
“+Fassbender brings it+And so does everyone else in the cast+Give Sorkin the Oscar now+Boyle handles the structure well-Cut off some intriguing moments9.3/10
“ The film studies such a complex character in a 2 hour film while keeping it entertaining with sophisticated, top notch craftsmanship.
“ Boring as hell.
“Yet, "Steve Jobs" is a powerful and titillating film, proving my notion that films that dedicate themselves to profiling a character through dialog and his relations with others can be just as gripping as any action film you can name.
“ The script is many things and is surely smart, swift and engaging until the very end.
“ Very boring movie as a result, covering only small part of activity of the interesting person.
“ Fell asleep three times.
“ It became too convenient for the story and a little predictable which I was disappointed with.
“ Every conversation and argument in this film commands your attention; it's unlikely that you're going to fall asleep while watching this film.
“ This is also how I would describe Boyle's stunning direction of the first true masterpiece of cinema to hit theaters in 2015.
“ On the plus side the cast do the best they can with such an uninspiring script and Kate Winslett has definitely done her homework accent-wise.
“Michael Fassbender gives a Near Perfect Portrayal and is an Intense, always Self-Reflective Jobs, whose Genius seems to be "The Big Picture" as Wozniak (Seth Rogan) explains in one of the many and Enthralling Exchanges between Jobs and His close Associates.
“ He really is a fantastic, visual storyteller, who by the way also makes a use of sound and music, breathtaking here.
“ This is an intense human drama that happens to be about Steve Jobs.
“ You will walk out of the film inspired and having admiration for the man Steve Jobs, and feeling emotional connection because he had flaws and problems just like any one of us.
“ Entertaining Biopic .
“ Very annoying, tedious movie in the beginning, all the arguing and bickering takes away from who Steve Jobs was.
“ Steve Jobs the movie is absolutely brilliant with uncanny performances that capture the real people, but likely totally boring to the technically uninclined.
“ Too much talking, too much negative arguing and pointless ramblings, no positive excitement for me to care anywhere in the storyline, no build up in anything, it's all over the place and Fassbender looks nothing like Steve Jobs!
“ I sat through about 15 minutes of wondering what was I watching, looking for something entertaining or new; for that matter what the hell it was even about..Looks like it should have been some short stage play called "A day with Jobs" (giving it a lot more credit than it should).
“ The former could end up being quite bland.
“ How to make what should be of interest a complete bore of a film.
“Each shot looked beautiful with stunning cinematography and lighting, I could randomly pull out a still from this film and it would look amazing 98% of the time.
“ One of most successful and enigmatic tech minds and CEOs of the 20th century, the prospect of a film that could tear down the façade and present a compelling examination of Steve Jobs is pretty thrilling.
“ It is very engaging, as we see him communicate with family members, work colleagues and close friends, and it shows just how complicated and hard working this man really was.
“ but which are all too predictable and formulaic to be of any interest: every sentence is interrupted, questions are either ignored or answered with a sarcastic put-down and hardly anyone is listening to anyone.
“Another interesting aspect of the film delves in to three exciting product launch meetings, the last in 1998 with the introduction of iMac.
“ His performance is snappy and on point delivering the wonderfully written dialogue in convincing fashion.
“ The business world is usually boring.
“ The movie was boring when it was about private life of Steve Jobs .
“ These actors had to remember pages of complex dialogue and deliver it with such raw emotion and I applaud them for it because it was so entertaining to watch.
“It is not a perfect film by any means, but in its pace and scale it makes for an engaging and intriguing character piece.
“ Cool tool to tell the story, but leaves so much of the story chopped up and confusing, without ever coming to a head.
“ Such a decision constructively shuns from the common default of the biographic genre, that is, ponderously chronicling a tedious running account of (significant) events in our protagonist's live, moreover, Boyle leavens the conflicts (both professional and personal) between Jobs (Fassbender) and various characters with Sorkin's trenchant script, creates riveting theatrics which more inclines to BIRDMAN (2014) than THE SOCIAL NETWORK (2010).
“ It is thoroughly entertaining and engaging, Danny Boyle sets a quick pace that never lets down, and the dialogue is a perfect example of Aaron Sorkin's ear for witty, intense patter.
“ Waste of time, tells nothing to the audience.
“ I really thought it was fascinating and mesmerizing and at times, funny and touching.
“ Tedious Fighting .
“Still waiting for a film which is entertaining, factual and has historical reality.
“ Except the role of Kate Winslet, that she interprets well, as I didn't recognize her at first, the rest of the movie is as boring and annoying as working on a Mac.
“ The worst movie of 2015!.
“ While I found it interesting to gain insight into the man and his product history, I found the constant arguing and conflicting discourse between him and everybody else in the movie to be tiresome after a while.
“ A Powerful, Engaging and Surprisingly Personal Biopic, .
“Each shot looked beautiful with stunning cinematography and lighting.
“The mercurial side of Steve Jobs is so well documented that the film turned into a cliché.
“ Every scene consisting of plenty of talking feels so fast paced, especially as these scenes are filmed in real-time.
“ An attempt at creating a "new" Jobs movie that left me a little bored and a little confused .
“ Interesting, engaging and emotional .
“ Jobs(2013) far better than Steve jobs(2015)-Boring!!.
“ (As written to my few relatives by e-mail, one of which opposed the idea of going to the movies to see this movie on account of its R rating and uninteresting subject matter.
“ The film is interestingly split into three acts- a brave and ultimately successful device from Boyle- while Michael Fassbender is flawless as the titular character, resulting in a thoroughly entertaining fare.
“ Engrossing .
“Though the film is consistently entertaining, it's not perfect.
“ A terrific effort, moving and entertaining the whole way through, that merits watching whether you love the ubiquitous brand or loathe it.
“ The film is anchored by terrific acting, character development, and pacing, which help make the film quite enjoyable.
“ The very unique narrative structure (cutting the first, second and third act into the behind- the-scenes of the conferences) was a smart decision, it made the pacing smooth, enjoyable and unique.
“ Five-Word Review: Excellently-acted, Tightly-scripted, Realistic, Mostly Compelling .
“ This movie takes us through a breathtaking tour and personal view of Steve Jobs's life for the first time.
“ There are occasional flashbacks to other moments of Jobs' life, but many of those I wanted to see developed whereas the ranting and raving became old and repetitive.
“ Who knew you could fill two whole hours with arguing in empty rooms at conference venues?
“ The editing at times would feel disjointed and awkward.
“ To put it simply a lot, and therefore watching a film based on his life was very intriguing to say the least.
“With snappy, yet highly improbable, dialogue supplied by Aaron Sorkin and kinetic clips combined with static stage shots from director Danny Boyle, this academic adaptation of the Apple mastermind's memoir is laborious, pretentious, and melodramatic.
“This conversation and the performance of actors were engaging and it kept us to the edge of the seat all over the movie.
“ The director and acting were great in this scene but it failed as the detail of their discussions were often difficult to follow.
“ In close it was boring material ( and jobs life is so interesting that it's amazing all his real material was ignored ) and bad acting .
“ The movie does tend to slow down in some parts revolving around Jobs' ousting from Apple and eventual reinstated status.
“ The conversation between the characters are quite gripping and never feel dull, though those expecting a more fact-based storytelling may be slightly disappointed.
“ Kate Winslet (one of the most beautiful actresses for me) was also breathtaking.
“ And I truly believe that this is one of the worst movies of all time because if watching a trailer makes you not want to see the rest of movie then it's the same as walking out after 2 minutes of seeing your best stuff.
“ However, Sorkin's writing and the key actors in the film make this a very enjoyable examination of a modern "god" ...
“ This is intense, which is cool.
“ These bits focusing on the inner struggles at Apple and the intense charismatic performance of Fassbender work in the movie's favor.
“ I expected the movie to be really boring and too long for that kind of film.
“ Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels are the most compelling and give equally powerful performances.
“ The picture reveals some of the bullheaded stubbornness the man had along those lines, and if one can get past the personal flaws of the title character, the story offers a compelling portrait of a principled man who might have engaged in a bit of humanity along the way.
“ Unnecessary, rehash, tried, redundant, pointless.. .
“First of all, the script is sharp, witty, fast-paced, and engaging, as to be expected from an acclaimed writer like Aaron Sorkin.
“ However, this story line was very hard to follow with all the fighting, in fact I feel like the whole movie was fighting.
“ More like a theater piece -- refreshing and fascinating .
“ One of the most boring movie I haven't seen .
“ I found the historical aspects of the roller-coaster ride of Jobs's career, supported by some great inserts of historical snippets by Arthur C Clarke and Bill Gates, fascinating.
“ Although boring at times, overall this film is absorbing, entertaining and heartwarming.
“ Another rater wrote this was boring and I really have to agree.
“ Steve Jobs is an invigorating and engrossing peek inside the life of a unique and controversial figure in the tech industry, and already rates as one of 2016's greatest movies.
“ Absolute torture to watch this movie saved only by Seth Rogan's performance.
“ There's all the things to love about Aaron Sorkin's writing and the acting is terrific, but Sorkin's screenplay lacks the enjoyable bite of his previous efforts and the whole thing comes off rather lacklustre.
“This movie is worth the time and attention demanded by such a dialogue intense film.
“ Nonetheless it was fascinating .
“ The cinematography is stunning in making mundane places seem almost holy.
“ If not for Danny Boyle's grainy, pronounced direction, the routine for Steve Jobs (my latest review) would grow rather tiresome.
“ Steve Jobs is really worth the watch.
“ Steve Jobs has one of the worst movie titles in film history.
“ Like this movie-it probably cost a bundle to make but I think it is essentially an empty gesture: as in the computers someone uses are like the clothes they wear or the car they drive-its just facets of their lives-and not the most important things about them.
“ This is a very entertaining film with mesmerizing performances from a talented cast; a great, though flawed direction, and a sharp screenplay by Aaron Sorkin.
“ It took me nearly eight hours to watch because it was so boring.
“ as boring as reading a review twice!
“Aaron Sorkin has outdone himself with an incredibly compelling script, structured around three crucial Apple product launches (each shot in 3 distinctive film formats) over the course of the visionary Jobs' storied career.
“Overall 'Steve Jobs' was captivating, beautiful and an intense dramatic ride which will have you on the edge of your seat more than most action films.
“ Huge praise is deserved for this well acted and superbly written film, it's emotional, breathtaking and I would certainly watch it again, I would recommend Steve Jobs to anyone looking for a good drama or biography film.
“ The movie was very intense which I would regard as a positive bur extremely slow moving which I felt to be a negative.
“ Absolutely boring movie, i really can't believe it!
“ Add a load of arrogance and anger to that and you get a nice recipe for a very boring movie.
“ It is a film that requires you to think while also entertaining you with the energy on display in the script from Aaron Sorkin and the direction from Danny Boyle.
“ Then Steve jobs gets on another stage for what should be an exciting feel good moment, only to be replaced by montages or nothing.
“ Steve Jobs is portrayed as an intense individual who is a perfectionist, condescending and difficult to work with.
“ Additionally, I found several moments hard to follow due to the time-jumping nature of the three separate time periods.
“ The story was engaging and the time jumps didn't feel forced, the three acts were well defined and Jobs' character arc was extremely interesting to observe.
“Boyle's directing is stunning and does not take center stage like before.
“ Some of the lines of dialogue are so pretentious its easy to get taken out of the film.
“However this is a well crafted, entertaining film that is well worth watching and deserving of awards.
“ Somewhere in the middle it becomes really boring and all you need is to skip to the end.
“ Sorkin's screenplay is as richly developed as ever, but at times, emotionally empty.
“I highly recommend Pirates of Silicon Valley (it's a TNT original TV movie first, which is best and entertaining film about Steve Jobs/Bill Gates by far) or even Ashton Kutcher's version "Jobs" as a MUCH MORE FRIENDLY starter.
“ All three actresses who portray Jobs' daughter Lisa are remarkable as well, and Catherine Waterston, playing their mother, gives an intense performance.
“ It was a strange feeling after being thrust between these breathtaking conflicts to suddenly find yourself laughing.
“ Good acting good idea but 2 hours long made it boring .
“ Steve Jobs is so fascinating to watch because of the great writing and dialogue between the characters and each of these actors and actresses so brilliantly get into these roles and can debate and recite these lines as if they went to the top acting and debating schools because the lines and the performances are pulled off so flawlessly here.
“ Riveting performances in a one-dimensional screenplay .
“ I feel as if Sorkin sometimes does too much with scenes of people speaking over one another to the point of confusion, and Boyle - well, he can be totally off the wall.
“let's remember him, flaws and all, even as we see flaws and all in each attempt to cover such a fascinating and brilliant character!
“Overall though, highly satisfying piece of filmmaking, very entertaining, fantastic work from the ensemble and from Sorkin.
“Ever since he passed away four years ago, biographers have been trying to pin down this man who bore the appearance of a wise, friendly showman on stage, a man whose innovations and beautiful mind put him in the same ranks as Edison, Tesla, Bell, Da Vinci, and The Wright Brothers.
“In "Horatio's Drive," documentarian Ken Burns tells the fascinating story of how the auto was sold to the public via the first cross-country auto race that saw the drivers met by cheering crowds in small towns across the continent in 1903.
“may have been more exciting then the sets which were as sealed as the apple.
“) But even though I found the movie enjoyable from beginning to end, there's not many big moments in it that'll stick with me.
“ For something featuring heavily, his personal/family life could have been better explored and delved into more, there is heart with the relationship between Steve and Lisa but the final fifteen minutes or so to me came over as contrived rather than emotional and although Katherine Waterston does a good job her role is underwritten.
“ Amazing writing and superb acting makes this a very compelling picture .
“ Steve Jobs is a great film, with personal stories and realistic, interesting drama thankfully replacing the fake and dull drama usually present in biopics.
“ Biographical but enjoyable .
“ Agree, this was boring .
“ Sure, every character in this movie is able to lash others with their sharp tongues, but the rapid-fire dialogue gets tiresome fairly fast.
“ showing the life of Steve Jobs by showing 4-5 boring unrealistic relationships he had in his life is not the best use of material.
“ Overall this film is an okay and entertaining take that's informative about the life times and struggles both personal and professional of a tech legend.
“ I did not care for the movie myself because it was just too intense.
“ Steve Jobs is at times entertaining and informative while also being empty and pertinacious.
“ There are a few slow moments where the momentum stutters but generally, for a movie that is 100% about human interactions and, well, walking and talking, STEVE JOBS has an undeniable energy that keeps it exciting to watch.
“ An enjoyable and interesting autobiograhy of sorts .
“ Like The Social Network and Moneyball, Steve Jobs has the fast paced, engaging dialogue you would expect.
“ But it is a compelling, uncompromising and beautifully crafted product ...
“ In particular, Fassbender's performance is a striking accomplishment of restraint merged seamlessly with command, as he portrays Jobs as a charming, amiable, and engrossing person in one scene, and a conflicted, revolting, contemptuous monster in the next.
“ At the beginning it's rather confusing, we don't understand everything right away, it's kind of quick.
“ All in all, it's a fine piece of art, with almost non-stop, engaging dialogue that makes you think far beyond the main character.
“ Three stars, for great acting, exciting direction, and not feeling that the two hours watching it weren't a total loss of time.
“ The story, following an unconventional yet fascinating three act structure dealing with three different launches that Jobs revolutionised, goes at an energetic pace and is kept afloat by the intensity of the characters (especially Jobs and Joanna).
“ It's towering, breathtaking, a performance to marvel at, and if he isn't nominated for Best Actor, I'll eat my ten-gallon hat.
“ The only downfall was some slow parts.
“ It's an empty, vapid movie, glorification of a very arrogant man with a God complex.
“Steve Jobs still becomes a bit boring.
“There are soft references to iPods and iPads, and Jobs' break-up with Apple is dramatized, but it's the individual scenes of interaction with others that makes this entertaining and challenging to watch.
“ Sorkin's work is compelling, with vibrantly preyed upon dialogue that simply sings through the theater.
“This strange use of the three act structure was one of the film's more intriguing elements.
“ Just boring.
“ I found it clever and highly engrossing, and lent itself very well to Sorkin's style of writing.
“ The movie takes an hour of arguing before we finally get an intriguing scene of Michael Fassbender actually begin to look like Steve Jobs with his iconic turtleneck, jeans, and glasses look along with the iMac; I would have preferred, and I'm sure many would have liked, to see moments like this, which is refreshing, than the arguing parts.
“ His relationship with co-workers, family and especially daughter is engrossing and will leave some with a heavy heart.
“The movie was extremely compelling and the dynamic between the two principal actors was as good as anything I've seen in movies for a while.
“ I highly recommend it.
“"Danny Boyle might have been the director of this biopic, but the true orchestrator of the film was Aaron Sorkin who once again delivers a powerful and engaging screenplay that makes the entire cast look fantastic.
“ I also left the theater wondering WHAT exactly did Jobs do as co-founder of Apple Inc.outside of being a genius marketing promoter?
“Director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, Oscar winner for his memorable work in 2010's The Social Network, successfully carried the film and delved deeper into Steve Jobs life and made it interesting and fascinating.
“Skip this one, it's a complete waste of time..
“ When one deals with a life of a personality such as Steve Jobs, that writer would have to try really hard to make the biography/biopic boring.
“ A fascinating character study .
“ Bonus, the movies themselves begin to get more intriguing.
“ Nevertheless, the performances are so captivating and the dialogues so engaging that I was fully invested into the moment.
“ How you could summarize all that convoluted history into the span of a movie and still make it extremely entertaining just blows my mind.
“Engaging and sparkling rival show between Fassbender and his co-stars, without relying too much on physical resemblance, Fassbender's Jobs is a flawed entrepreneur, a genius hampered by his personality, as he claims, he doesn't care whether to be liked or disliked by people around him, his only aim is to do the right thing, to create revolutionary products in the digital era and in fact he succeeded.
“ I'm not quite sure what the movie wanted to say or its true intention, it is entertaining to watch him argue with those around him and be extremely arrogant of his ideas while belittling others.
“ This made things particularly confusing during an intense argument between Jobs and Sculley which is crosscut with another argument between the two from many years ago.
“ Change the title and our historical knowledge of Steve Jobs and you just have a boring story of a man who was flawed.
“ This is possibly the most entertaining movie I've seen all year.
“It's way, way, way too talkative that makes it hard to follow with constant cross talk and argument, regardless of the principal actor Michael Fassbender's good acting.
“ Well-done, often very entertaining.
“ So, it all seems pointless.
“ To say Steve Jobs is as important to history, and as compelling a character as Mozart is not a stretch in my opinion.
“￼Steve Jobs takes this arrogant control freak and savvy businessman and creates an in-depth character study that becomes riveting drama in the expert hands of its talented filmmakers.
“ All were given equal importance even though the screenplay was boring at some points.
“ An entertaining and well made film for sure just not the masterpiece it could have been.
“I can't judge the film's historical accuracy, but I do know it's absolutely thrilling.
“ It was obviously written in a rush and the result is uninspired, shallow and pretentious film.
“ Aaron Sorkin is the man to thank for such a remarkable and engaging script.
“When my wife and myself hired the film to enjoy on pay per view, we fell asleep.
“" Though Kate Winslet's accent starts globe-trotting at times and the amount of walking-and-talking in scenes can start to get under the skin a little, the film is eminently enjoyable.
“Steve Jobs is a highly entertaining, intellectual and thoughtful piece of cinema.
“ Their characters are of no consequence, so why the pointless dialogue.
“If you want to experience something entertaining and historic see the classic "Pirates of Silicon Valley" TV movie.
“ An unexpected delight of the year that, despite being unable to paint an accurate picture of its titular character, delivers a movie experience that's engaging from the first frame, gets more invigorating with every passing moment & finishes on a much rewarding note.
“ Boring Movie .
“ But that insight feels incomplete and unrefined at various points in the film, because Sorkin's (usually impeccable) writing keeps treading into theatrical, garrulous, and, dare I say, even self-indulgent territory to metamorphose into a truly involving experience.
“ Entertaining the audience is another matter entirely.
“ Although the flashbacks add a dynamic element that break the monotony of the film, sometimes feels confusing.
“ And even with all of that, this movie turned out to be quite boring.
“The director did a fantastic job here,but he did have one of the best screenwriters working today to help him out,which concluded to an amazingly rich and thrilling movie.
“ Add in line-deliverers like Fassbender, Winslet, Rogen, Daniels, and Stuhlbarg, Jobs end result is a hypnotic and highly entertaining capsule of a man at the center of the computer generation.
“ As if he took for granted our knowledge of Steve Jobs' accomplishments, Boyle went for a disrupting, but oddly fascinating character study, structured into three acts, each one featuring the launch of one of Jobs' key products : the first mass-produced computer Apple MacIntosh in 1984, the NeXT computer in 1988, designed for a more business-oriented target and the iMac G3 in 1998, which was adapting the computer industry with the Internet era.
“ Also it seems mind boggling that the only thing that is contested in the way Apple ran its business is the fact they used skinheads in one of their promotion videos?
“When the trailer first came out for this film people criticised it purely for the fact that it was about Steve Jobs, I personally thought it was captivating and it looked to be an intense and well done drama.
“ At all, it wasn't real, and of the top of that, it was totally boring, and misleading...
“ 3) they focused on boring relationships I felt the premise of the idea was similar to the Facebook movie in that you have an arc such as a law case and grow the movie from that.
“ Engaging look at an interesting man .
“Overall Steve Jobs is a very watchable and engaging film, provided you are already into end of the year Oscar bait drama films.
“ The scenario is pretty good but the movie lasts 2 hours and that makes you bored because here it is not pleasant or clear how Steve evolves through the years.
“ There were some memorable arguing, like between Steve and Woz, but honestly, there are so many arguing going on in this film, some just drag on and feel pointless (like with his wife where she keeps nagging him about the 28% - over and over and over again).
“ Terrible, boring, unrealistic .
“ Compelling picture of a complicated genius.
“ I didn't end up enjoying this movie, because the protagonist was so unlikable and the theater-esque setting felt a little pretentious, but Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet's performances were worth watching.
“ It is highly engaging, through showing us the man behind the brand, warts and all.
“ Absolutely uninteresting movie about Jobs.
“) but it's certainly an intriguing and insightful look at a man and company that changed our future, for better or worse.
“ That is fascinating discussion topic, and one that Sorkin and director Danny Boyle cut to the heart of with "Steve Jobs".
“Steve Jobs was entertaining.. yes, but it was difficult to follow the plot.
“ There was a time when, upon leaving the house, I never walked out without my wallet and my keys.
“ There is reason behind his actions, and watching Fassbender masterfully explore those reasons was completely fascinating.
“ Apart from the snappy and well written dialogue Sorkin is known for, the choices made in the film I found to be quite fitting.
“ The internal machinations at Apple prove to be fascinating, despite the stage play-like presentation.
“ Really Enjoyable.
“ The only complaint may be the film's computer and business lingo is occasionally, not often but occasionally, too confusing for a non computer whiz to understand.
“ Intense, impeccably crafted, and beautifully human - an innovation in film .
“ Simple Pointless Movie .
“ And instead of feeling compassion or even empathy for this scumbag, I felt contempt and boredom.
“ There were a few lull moments that really took away from the story.
“I have tried to see this movie twice when running on TV, and I really fell asleep twice,...
“ All of these conversations are riveting because Michael Fassbender is the embodiment of who Steve Jobs was.
“ I thoroughly enjoyed the film and would highly recommend it.
“ An intense show of emotion .
“ Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet both gave a terrific performance, as the chemistry between the two was convincing and enjoyable to watch.
“ The tension filled launches were very entertaining to see, it was almost as the viewer was there in every big move Apple made.
“ I found this movie tedious already knowing the story.
“ Steve Jobs was a fascinating, though complex, individual, so having a film based on him was always going to peek interest.
“ I found the story really really confusing at times, which left me wondering about almost everything that was going on.
“ All in all, Steve Jobs is an incredibly entertaining film with a killer script, fantastic acting and gives us a nuanced perspective on Steve Jobs.
“The most fascinating factor about the film was Steve Jobs himself and his driving desire to revolutionize computer technology as we know it, at any cost, no matter what, while making sacrifices all throughout when it came to parental responsibilities towards his daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs, who he initially denied paternity.
“ I went into this movie expecting to be bored.
“ As a fictional story however, it's downright thrilling, tremendously entertaining & thoroughly riveting piece of storytelling that's viciously written by Aaron Sorkin, brilliantly directed by Danny Boyle, and strongly performed by its cast, especially Michael Fassbender & Kate Winslet.
“ I would recommend it for some scenes however I would nos see it again because I found it boring at the end.
“ The scenes were always on a rapid tempo, which I believe was done to show how tense it was behind the curtain, but making it some fast paced also made it difficult to follow sometimes.
“ Fassbinder's ability to portray manic arrogance and genius at the same time makes for compelling viewing.
“Overall, Steve Jobs left me a little disappointed with its focus on uninteresting aspects of Jobs's life and with its format which created viewing difficulties.
“ I say "pretty much" because I actually fell asleep for a brief moment in this dog.
“ Like the beautifully designed Apple products, Steve Jobs is a fascinating look into the man behind the Macs.
“ I have to admit that I've been struck by the unexpected awesomeness of this movie that I don't actually quite figure out why it wasn't shortlisted for the Oscars' best picture and best screenplay, best this year, Though it already won The Golden Globe for best screenplay and best actress in a supporting role, it definitely deserved at least one Oscar trophy, it came much better than Jobs (2013) although it focused on a much shorter time frame.
“ The actors are totally immersed in their roles and they are completely transformed.
“ Scattered and Disjointed .
“ The dialogues were gripping, real, and meaningful.
“Yet, the person who steals the show is Aaron Sorkin, who delivers a dynamite screenplay with witty and intriguing dialogue.
“ A compelling and sympathetic performance that is entirely engaging.
“ The worst part about it was the cliché "becoming a better father" subplot.
