What are people saying?

  • Dave's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    Strong performance from Fassbender in portraying one of the most unlikeable personalities in recent popular culture. Interest structural choices from Boyle that work, although I personally grow a bit exhausted at points in Sorkin scripts.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    This movie would have sucked if it wasn't for the brilliant direction of Danny Boyle giving this film with nothing but talking and yelling have as much energy and suspense as an action film. Add in the exceptional and long winded dialogue of Aaron Sorkin with an exceptional cast to speak these words. The always brilliant Fassbender with the equally brilliant Winslet matching every move and Rogen holds his own too.

  • Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    "You can be decent and gifted at the same time," proclaims Woz, but Boyle & Sorkin don't seem so sure. Its contrived structure actually works in its favour, ditching tired biopic tropes in favour of something more theatrical and fantastical. Almost Felliniesque in the way the 6 other main characters float around him, neatly destabalising the pedestal of genius. Fassbender's stunning performance echoes Richard III.

  • Igor Ramos's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    I usually hate Aaron Sorkin's scripts because they tend to be so over-flood with dialogue. I liked that they stuck to only 3 seminal moments in Jobs' career while still giving us some insight into his personality. But even with Fassbender and Winslet's acting skills on display this felt austere and 'empty', perhaps like Jobs himself. I wanted something more stimulating on an emotional and visual level.

  • Daniel Roque's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    Certainly better than Jobs 2013 biopic, but with only three scenes filled with dialogue there's a feeling of scarcity of Steve Jobs lifetime. The cinematography is quite good, as Michael Fassbender's despicable portrait of this boss/father, but the movie as a whole doesn't live up to Jobs memorable life.

  • Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    Sorkin approached this biopic the same way he did with THE SOCIAL NETWORK, treating the subject as something of a Greek tragedy (Replacing the tragedy of human connection in Zuckerberg's biopic, with a grand theme of Power, control, and the price of having a genius mind. The end product is this exhilarating, vibrant, energetic, gung-ho, kung-fu hustle, -I am really running out of superlatives here- hell of a film

  • Tigrão's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    A surprisingly excellent film. I could not have been less interested in a film despite the appealing cast and crew, probably dreading what I expected to be another random biopic film. It turned out to be a frenetic and driven portrait of a contradictory man. Sorkin may have his detractors, but I think he did an absolutely fantastic job at bringing this Film/Play (3 distinctive acts) to life.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Steve Jobs

    Even if you wanted to make the argument (I don't) that Aaron Sorkin only does one thing, the truth is he does that one thing exceedingly well. "Jobs" is propelled forward at breakneck speed by Sorkin's acerbic dialogue, which is ably given voice by a uniformly excellent cast. The 'bottle episode' structure is an inspired touch that sidesteps the usual biopic cliches. Only the final 5 minutes register as a bum note.
