This is an engaging film, but it is not a good biographical film. We view three important moments in Steve Jobs life, (I’m assuming because we didn’t learn much about him.)
It skims the surface of the three events so, while we learn little bits, not enough to be claimed as a biography.
Apple, the mac, all of that stuff is in the background to chaos that is Steve Jobs personal relationships. If you’re hoping to watch something that gives you an in-depth history of the man or the technology then this will disappoint you.
Michael Fassbender is amazing as Steve Jobs. I don’t know if it’s a true portrayal of the man, but he was entertaining and charismatic on the screen. I also thought Kate Winslet, Seth Rogan and Jeff Daniels were excellent too.
Still, while an entertaining film, the way it’s portrayed makes me unsure of what is truly factual. I would’ve liked more facts rather than drama.
To sum up, entertaining, great acting, not a lot of information
Was it worth the watch? Yes
Would I re-watch? No
