First I would like to say how epic the cast in this film is, each did award winning work in my books. Ashton Kutcher looks a lot like the man himself and I believe Mr. Jobs would have been proud to see Ashton playing him on the big screen. Others like Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, Dermot Mulroney, J.K. Simmons, Ron Eldard and more bring the rest of the power to the table. So 5 stars to the cast for their work. They really blend well together which makes it work.
Remember when they printed the last Harry Potter and there were blank pages in a few copies? Well, I believe I now know how those readers felt when they got to the first blank page. The reason I say that this is because when those books were printed with blank pages, the amazing start of the story was there along with a good amount of more but just when you feel that you are getting to the major end of the story it stops right in it tracks. The same is true with this film, it has a amazing start to the story but that is the issue it is only the start. This man made Apple and even since his passing is still the face of the company, shouldn't we be able to see his whole story told? Are we really too scared to tell the truth of his passing on the big screen? I believe if you are going to tell a story, you must tell the whole story. I hope they are already working on 'Jobs 2' to finish the story. (Just a note: The Harry Potter blank page books were replaced with the whole book for anyone who brought them).
I really do like this movie and think it does tell a lot about Steve's life and about those around him but it cuts off way too soon at the end. I would say you should go see it even with this issue because the movie that is there is well worth your time. The story it does tell is a really good one with great life lessons.
