Only 3 moments in Steve's life...
6 February 2016 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Hoped the movie was about the entire life, ended up "just" seeing 3 moments in his life, before some critical moments none the less. Yet, have the feeling that a good dramatic movie about his entire life has yet to be made (see Jobs (2013) which was OK, but not epic). Steve Jobs (2015) was lacking some feeling of "I was there", Michael Fassbender is a good/excellent actor, but I didn't got the feeling I was watching Steve Jobs himself, and that's too bad. The other actors, like Woz, played by Seth Rogen, were much more like the real person. Joanna Hoffman I had to look up on Google, did look like how Kate Winslet looked in the movie, but I didn't recognize the real person in it. Jeff Daniels as John Sculley I recognized as the same kind of person as in Jobs (2013), which I think was a good thing. First being the alliance with Steve, then switching towards the board/company. Good acting there.
