Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad
Director: Joshua Michael Stern
Synopsis: A biographical film based on the life of the famous Steve Jobs, who was the one person who made hell lot of changes in people's life today.
The Thumb-Up(s): Undeniably Ashton Kutcher and his make-up artist managed to make him looked really like the late Steve Jobs, especially when he was older. Ashton also imitated his walk very well! I also like how they sort of shows the real side of Steve Jobs, without making him looking or sounding too perfect. Also, all the efforts of gathering all the old school computers and stuff from decades ago!
The Thumb-Down(s): While we understand that this is based on a true story, the entire film sounded a little too boring and slow; there were no climax, and lack of depth and sophistication in the characters, especially Steve Job's character itself. 
Verdict: If you are a techy person, or a huge fan of Steve Jobs, you shouldn't miss this one. But if you ask me, the movie and Ashton Kutcher's performance fell far off from what a lot of people have been expecting from it/him.
