I really enjoyed this film a lot, well worth the watch

I did not watch this film with any preconceived notion of what Job's was like, I watched this as I wanted to watch the performances of both Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet. Both are sublimely brilliant in this movie, with outstanding acting. The material content of the company Apple was of little concern, as I wanted to see how both actors handled the role of true characters and both actors completely delivered for me in this movie.

As a loather of the hype and baffling adulation that seems to prevail over Apple products,I thought i would rent this.......just because.....I adore bio movies...I love getting an insight into what "famous" people are like behind the scenes. I didnt have any preconceived ideas about what Jobs was like as a person,or anything about him. If this film is in anyway true,he seems to have been a thoroughly unlikeable,demanding,manipulative man,and a bad father to boot! The acting was superb...Michael Fassbender,as always is a joy. His talent is truly breathtaking. I found myself forgetting he was an actor...kate Winslett too was great as his head of marketing,Joanna Hoffman...but special mention goes to Seth Rogen,who,for once takes on a serious role and nails it completely. His verbal spat with Jobs in the auditorium near the end of the film was brilliance....I enjoyed it.....BUT....it STILL didnt endear me to Apple products!

Definitely worth a watch

I liked the film. It sure how much of it was fiction but it answered a few questions I had about this great creative person of our time. The film involves lots of dialogue though, so if you're not a fan of talky movies you might be a little dissapointed but the conversations are interesting enough to keep one glued to the screen once you get over that.

Good Job(s)

From the opening shots of this movie you can immediately recognise it as Danny Boyle's work, both from the soundtrack and the camera work, giving this movie a distinct style. Performance wise I thought Michael Fassbender was spot on playing an intriguing but ultimately not very likeable character, plus Kate Winslet was superb as his right hand woman who sticks by him and stands up to him throughout. Narrative wise it was very much a character study rather than following a linear plot as the film follows the major failures and successes of Job's career but the main focus is on his obsession and fractured relationships with the people around him. Worth seeing and the better of the 2 Steve Jobs biopics I have seen.

Quality of the film OK, but the subject turned me off

This film portrays Jobs as a despicable character, which he probably was, but I didn’t enjoy watching it that much as I couldn’t empathise with any character

One Dimension.

Always enjoy Fassbenders' work, especially 'Frank'. He gave a good portrayal but the story was so abridged that it wasn't a true arc. The 'arc' was meant to be Lisa, Steve's daughter, from what I can gather, and the only way it got made. Hey, I still enjoyed it.

Not a true reflection of his life or work
Verified purchase
Having read the official Jobs biography, I was very disappointed in the film as it only centred on the iMac but even this was overshadowed by his relationship with his daughter and her mother.
There was no mention of Jonny Ive, iPhone, iPod or iPad.
The initial struggles with Woz to get a viable product and his obsession with perfection were omitted with the exception of a reference to a perfect cube.
As an applephile since 1988, I felt that this film did not give sufficient credit to his genius.
