Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution, to paint a portrait of the man at its epicenter. The story unfolds backstage at three iconic product launches, ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac.
Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking site that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business.
Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
There is not much to say about this movie that hasn't been written in many of the reviews before. The movie is flat, no emotions whatsoever, no chemistry between the actors, most of the carachters are just "one dimension"..
I am not an apple fanatic (I have some of their products but I do not change them to follow the flow every year) and I am not blind before the flaws of Jobs' personality, but I'd like to see in the movie all the aspects of the man who, like it or not, left a mark in the IT field. What I saw it is a series of often disconnected episodes, and the few of them which were nice were a re-do of the (much better) the pirates of the Silicon Valley.
Do not waste your time with this movie: if you want to learn more about apple/jobs, read a book, if you are already aware of the story, it simply won't add anything.
