This movie is broken down into a behind the scenes look before 3 major releases in Steve Jobs’ life

  1. The Macintosh Launch in 1984
  2. The Next Launch in 1988
  3. The iMac Launch in 1998

Before each release, Steve interacts with Joanna Hoffman (Apple Marketing Executive), Chrisann Brennan (Jobs’ ex-girlfriend), Lisa (Jobs’ daughter), Steve Wozniak (Apple Co-Founder), and John Sculley (Apple CEO).  Each of these people are a window to the soul of Steve Jobs’.  Jobs was a visionary of computing and its users, however he often discounted and discredited those around him.  Each person wants to be acknowledge in their role in Jobs’ life, but Jobs can’t see others’ importance beyond his own ambitions.  Will Jobs change and give Wozniak’s contributions, his daughter’s paternity, or his customer’s rights to expand his product the praise they deserve?

Steve Jobs is a realistic view of a man that would be labeled the genius and visionary of the 21st century.  This is not the Steve Jobs you read about in a magazine.  This is the Steve Jobs only his “friends” knew and “liked”.  He is not glamorized and Michael Fassbender stars as Steve with frightening accuracy.  The wardrobe and make-up artist displayed the correct time period in fashion and technology along with properly aging all of the character.  The cinematography during Sculley and Job’s current and past conversations were magnificently edited and a joy to watch.   Although this is a good movie, some movie goers will have a hard time understanding the computer terminology.  Also, this movie felt a little too long for what was accomplished.  The movie could have been 1.5 hours long and still conveyed the same message and feeling.   You won’t feel cheated if you pay full price, but go matinee if you can.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

God sent his only son on a suicide mission.  But we like him anyway, because he gave us trees – Steve Jobs
