Quotes

[last lines]
Steve Jobs: Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things - they push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy ...

can't stand the comparison to SOCIAL NETWORK
7 December 2013 | by (Madrid) – See all my reviews

Well, plain and simple, to me this has been a fiasco. People not acquainted to Job's life will have the feeling they're missing something, and people who have read the book or simply know a little of Job's life will conclude the movie missed a lot.

We'll see Steve bullying on everyone as a dictator running Apple, right after picturing him as some clear minded wise man with a strong meditation and spiritual background.

The story would have been so strong if only the characters took their time to develop, and not just showing them to the camera, say their names and on to the next clip of Jobs and his illuminated doing. I'm thinking of Wozniak, Job's daughter, Mike, etc.

And all that speeding through the story of his life to just finish halfway of his real success, and end credits appear just to let you down with all your expectations blasted.
