SOME SEE WHAT’S POSSIBLE, OTHERS CHANGE WHAT’S POSSIBLE.
The story of how Steve Jobs turned from a smug college kid, with an uncanny gift for spotting how people in the future might be willing to pay for a personal computer, into the hugely successful leader of Apple deserves a better screen treatment. Focus lies on his younger years, his uncompromising attitude and how he screwed people over, but there is no depth whatsoever, especially when the filmmakers cover Jobs’s relationship with women. Ashton Kutcher does what he can with the superficial material.
