Steve Jobs (2015)
2/10
Horrible - don't let the high ratings fool you
24 October 2015
If you want to see a film that goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about what a selfish, obsessed, self-absorbed jerk Steve Jobs was, then watch this film. Otherwise, don't bother. That point is made in the first five minutes. And the next five minutes. And the five minutes after that. And the five minutes after that. And all the way through to the final five minutes before the end of the film. No character arc whatsoever can be had. Nothing changes from "fade in" to "fade out". The one attempt to shift the arc at the end of the movie falls flat with ambiguity. Boring as hell. I have no idea why this film has such high viewer ratings and an above-average Metascore. The only reason I've given it two stars is because the cast gave a very decent performance.
