It's extremely difficult to make a movie depicting someone else's life
especially when they are no longer present to help maintain it. With
that being said, the movie about the life of Steve Jobs entitled
"Jobs" was pretty good in my opinion. If you're looking for it to
answer deep looming questions about him you may be dismayed but it
does give you a better sense of what his professional life was like.
It also throws in a few vague hints at his personal life. He played
such an important role in society that it bothers me that it
overlooked so many of the projects as well as the moments that led him
to apple. I did like that it depicted him as not only a passionate,
artistic innovator but also as a controlling shrewd businessman. It
crammed to over 20 years of accomplishments into 2 hours fairly well
with respect to the late Steve Jobs. It may have not been organized in
its storytelling but it is informational nonetheless. If you've ever
listened to his inspiring speeches, you would never expect any actor
to come close to the tone he brought to the podium. Ashton Kutcher
gave a smart performance considering the undertaking of playing such a
character. He brought about such technological and cultural changes
into the world that you can't help but anticipate the next scene of
this film even with some of its obvious faults.
It only takes one person to start a revolution. He saw what was
possible. He overcame those that became obstacles and brought a vision
to fruition. I'm personally looking forward to the sequel.
