An actual documentary would have the real Steve Jobs. This is a FILM based upon the life of Mr. Jobs. Mr. Kutcher's acting skills are a matter for debate.

It seems to be filmed well enough. Acting isn't too shabby, either. It's definitely worth watching in Steve's memory.

Seems like it's going for the same feel as The Social Network.

Since movies usually show in theatres for 1 day only, I guess you'll never get to see it. Sucks to be you.

Noah Wyle > Ashton Kutcher

Noah BECAME Jobs. He did such an incredible job in that role; I just cant see Kutcher coming close to that.

I'll probably check it out being the Apple nut that I am, but I am skeptical. For my money, the Pirates of Silicon Valley will be hard to beat. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lEyrivrjAuU

Granted, I've seen of all 2 minutes but this looks like a government-broadcaster movie of the week.

I hope this isn't something that appears in theaters. Based on the small clip, it seems more like something you might watch late night after Conan if you can't fall asleep.

Waiting for the other Jobs movie instead, that one should be better (Aaron Sorkin).

Well, from that one minute, you can't really tell much. But I like what I'm seeing so far, Kutcher is really believable. Some of you have to remember that this is supposed to be early Apple, and not today's Apple. Also keep in mind that it's 2013, and not the 70's/80's, and while they're aiming for that old look, they're trying to keep it modern looking too.

I'm pretty sure at least one of you could do better? Because you know, it is pretty easy to submit your film to be considered for festivals like Sundance.

This is far worse than I possible could of imagined. That guy is not believable as Woz!

The whole OS speech Kutcher gave reminded me of the stuff he said around the table in Eric Foreman's basement....not good.

No comment on Ashton Kutcher and the film as it hasn't been shown yet.
But I do wish there would be a sequel to Pirates of Silicon Valley...

And I miss this:
Macworld NY 1999-Noah Wyle imitating Steve Jobs

Did they get Hagrid, from Harry Potter to play Woz?

Thumb resize.

he comes off way too much like Kelso in this. He may look the part but it just doesn't seem right to me, maybe its just this clip. Having seen the current Woz I would not have expected this type of acting for his role, I guess its possible that was what he was like at that age lol

But it isn't a documentary. It's a biography. Just as the author of a biography has to do justice to the subject of his book, the actor has to do the same to the character he's playing.

I'm actually surprised that I didn't dislike it. Didn't even have a problem with Kutcher. Not sure I like Gad's Woz though.

I'll probably watch it at some point, but I have to say- The Woz and Jobs of Pirates of Silicon Valley were much more convincing.

Me too. Hopefully they don't spend too much time on the love interest and make that the driving force.
