The long awaited Steve Jobs film, JOBS, has finally hit theaters. As good as the movie is, it did not quite live up to the hype that has surrounded the film since it was first announced over a year ago.
The entire movie is based around the life of Steve Jobs from dropping out of college to the early 21st century. But the movie is not just about Steve Jobs (Ashton Kutcher), but also about the development of Apple. The company started when Jobs and his friend Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad) start developing a personal computer that anyone can use.The movie continues on to show how the company goes from a garage in the suburbs to going public to completely falling apart.
This movie has an education aspect to it. It is an easy way to learn a lot about Apple's history. The film gives an in-depth look into the technology Apple has developed and the steps they took to get there. It also goes into Job's past with his friends, relationships, and family.
While this was a good movie, it was almost too overwhelming. Kutcher does an excellent job of portraying Jobs, but Jobs had a past that most people don't know about. There were some very intense scenes that the audience may not have been expecting.
But the movie is definitely a must-see. It is a well-written film, with excellent casting, and great acting. It was unfortunately hyped up so much in the media that it has trouble living up to its expectations. But don't let that stop you! It's a film everyone, even PC users, will want to see.
