REVIEW: Kutcher in 'Jobs' was a total Face Palm
Yesterday, I made my way to see the film 'Jobs' starring, Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs. The film is an inaccurate biopic of the creation and creator of Apple. As well as the rise and fall and rise again of Apple and Steve Jobs.
Joshua Michael Stern, is the man to blame for this poorly directed film. The pacing and emotional investment that was given throughout the film was subpar at best. I believe the life of (arguably) the greatest innovator ever, as well as one of the most loved and hated people within the tech world should have been more compelling film. If you haven't read the biopic by Walter Isaacson then I could even see some confusion in some of the loose ends that are within the film.
Another downer for me was the film also leaves at the release of the iPod, Steve had just made his connection with one of the greatest visionaries Jony Ive. That is the story that I believe is just as interesting as the first part of his career. How was he able to get the iPad or the Macbook Pro or the Macbook Air on the market. What about his struggles with cancer and his continues relationship mending of his daughter. What about iTunes or even flops like MoblieMe or dotMAC would be interesting.
If you are an Apple fanboy(girl) there are some interesting moments that may or may not be accurate, but are nonetheless entertaining. If you don't have much of an interest in the inner workings of Apple then it is safe to say that this film is not for you, because as far as films go it will not stand on its own.
