Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

BBFC Certificate: 15

'Steve Jobs' is a biographical drama film based on the life of apple founder Steve Jobs. The film stars Michael Fassbender in the lead role. The film is directed by Danny Boyle.

After the somewhat laughable 'Jobs' staring Ashton Kutcher It it's with a sigh of relief that someone in Hollywood got it right with the latest adaptation of the businessman's life. This time Danny Boyle takes the directors chair, with a subtle yet suitable direction and Arron Sorkin has been wisely chosen as screenwriter, most likely because of his work on 2010's 'The Social Network', Sorkin has a high reputation and his latest screenplay doesn't disappoint, with it's quick whips and complex drama, although the screenplay may not be as razer sharp as the social network, it's still praiseworthy. Micheal Fassbender, of course is great in the lead role, which will be another performance to his already impressive cannon of work. The supporting cast all turn in impressive performances which help stimulate the story further.

Despite the strong qualities of Steve Jobs I found the film to be a little flawed here and there. The second act of the film was feeling a little sluggish because of the repetitive nature of the story and the ending of the film felt too emotionally manipulative and quite far fetched.

Rating; 7/10
