Critic Reviews for Steve Jobs

All Critics (312) | Top Critics (61)

Sometimes Fassbender's face is rigid with tension. Elsewhere he's loosey goosey. What's uncanny is that despite no prosthetics being used he never looks like himself.

November 16, 2015 | Rating: 4/5

[Boyle's] real achievement is making cinema out of material that isn't even a stage play as much as very expensive radio: a battery of dialogue, unbroken by reflective pauses or even, on occasion, the actors drawing breath.

November 12, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A drama that is genuinely concerned with thinking and ideas relevant to the way we live now.

November 12, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Steve Jobs is scuppered by its repetitive nature, with Sorkin's overly verbose dialogue and Boyle's proclivity for on-the-nose visual statements sorely testing the patience, even if one is prepared for them.

November 11, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Steve Jobs is successful in conveying the excitement verging on hysteria that each new launch provoked. It deals very skilfully with the ups and downs in Jobs' career -- his wilderness years after he left Apple and his glorious return.

October 23, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

As original and risk-taking as its subject, "Steve Jobs" will make you think differently about an American icon.

Audience Reviews for Steve Jobs

An intelligent and well-acted character study that avoids being another full-life biopic about Steve Jobs and does instead a remarkable job in fleshing out his personality through three public events in his life and a few flashbacks - which, in turn, suffer a bit from some clumsy editing.

Interesting take to concentrate on the last minutes and conversations Jobs had before his three biggest launch presentations in 84, 88 and 98. It helps to have some basic knowledge of his career and products at the time, because there is not much explaining offered here. Of course a film relying entirely on characters talking has to have a killer script, and it does. The writing is fantastic, and the acting just as exceptional. That makes for a so much more entertaining film than expected, albeit a limited one in his portrayal of the controversial figure. There are plenty of reasons to assume many of those conversations actually happened, but can we assume we know the full picture? Still, very powerful and rewarding.

Michael Fassbender offers a remarkable performance in this rapid and complex biopic. Steve Jobs' fascinating direction and perplexing narrative conjures up a solid perspective on a visionary figure and path. 4/5
