A movie on the life of Steve Jobs? Ashton Kutcher?
These were the questions that were running in the mind. The second one proved to be a bad judgement on my part as soon as the movie started. The very first scene convinced me that Ashton Kutcher did his home work for the part. His body language and mannerisms were impeccable.
Is this a movie on Steve Jobs? Unfortunately, this question was running at the back of head, even now. In fact, can that ever be categorized, a biography!!!
Jobs was a pathetic human being. He never lived up in the good books of his friends throughout his life. He became ultra famous as a visionary by leading a company called Apple. His business ideas are definitely genius. But this BIOGRAPHY neither showed his bad personal life nor the good entrepreneur life.
Jobs made apple the super successful IT company post the 90's after he introduced the famous iPhone and iPad. And the script conveniently leaves that part out. A computer manufacturing company entering the phone arena... That was thinking different. The misfit... And it doesn't even gets a mention. Whoa!!! What a biopic.
The troubling years of Steve Jobs when he is out of Apple gave us two company's. One is Next Technologies as seen in the film and the other one is PIXAR. I know that it is awkward to showcase another studio in your film, but please!!!
And can somebody explain me that Bach's piece of music in the background, when Steve is enjoying the LSD induced Euphoria? Does that remotely imply that Jobs was planning to launch a music device that changes the world, how to listen Music? Outrageous script writing there with a huge Cliché!
If you are remotely aware of the person called Steve Jobs, this film is not for you.
Steve Jobs is the inventor-genius who gave us the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad, to name a few objects of desire in our technology-driven world. What he also gave us is a reason to hope that someday, despite all the troubles and rejections, one's potential will be truly appreciated. His motto was, "Let's go invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday". He was a rebel, intellect, whiz kid, and brilliant entrepreneur, who passed away too soon and, therefore, became even more intriguing.
So when a movie based on his life hits the theatres, you have high hopes....
