Jobs (2013)

The story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century. (IMDb)

The corporate growth story and related business drama here are engaging (despite the big time jumps), but they’re broken up by character sub-plots that are too inconsistent and riddled with contrived dialogue to resonate much, even with Kutcher’s strong lead turn. And when you consider the oft-unpleasant colouring and bad editing full of try-hard montages of spastic camerawork, vague inspirational voiceovers, and meaningless scene splices, the good plot points become hard to hold onto.
