Now as most of you have witnessed already,
there's a lot of negative talk and controversy circling around the truth of this film. To be frank, only Jobs and those closest to him around that time will ever truly know what happened, so let's enjoy the film for what it is..Entertainment.
Being that this movie isn't a "fictional" account of some character, we don't feel it's necessary to really swing around the plot line, so let's enter the center. Jobs is a film that gives you a little more insight about the man behind the plan, it goes beneath the black shirt to show that it wasn't all peaches and cream. Steve was a man just like anyone else with doubts and faults that some understood, while others misunderstood. One thing that stands out about the portrayal of Jobs is that he never gave up, even when the chips were down. Success or failure, Jobs followed his vision even when others abandoned him for the security of conformity.
The most intriguing aspect of this movie is the intensity that propelled Jobs throughout his life. Steve was a Do'er, "if anyone's seen "Pain and Gain" they'll know what that means", he followed his ideas to the finish. This is the point where you'll hear a lot of the bitter naysayers complaining about "they did this" and "he didn't do that", how about "It's done"! Can we just move forward and you keep playing your ipod touch while surfing the net on your mac? Sorry about that, just had to address the haters for a second, now let's continue forward.
As stated earlier, Kutcher's portrayal of Steve is exceptional to say the least. Everything from Steve's passionate gaze to the awkward walk are all there in Ashton's actions throughout the presentation. Judging by the flow of the movie, it seems that Jobs may have also had a touch of OCD with some personality issues, but hey "He made some great gadgets didn't he"? Now that's just our speculation, but overall we feel the film was solid as a whole. "Jobs" also contains depictions and mentions of some of the origianl crew that helped him build his amazing company, but ultimately the film revolves around the main attraction, Jobs.
Now with that said, we'd like to invite those of you that have seen this film or are planning to see this film to help us continue the conversation, below. What are your thoughts about the movie? Is it an accurate account or overly exaggerated depiction of Steve's life? Did Ashton do Jobs justice in his performance?
