Review: Steve Jobs

Besides the marvellous acting from Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet, Steve Jobs is defined by its script, a somewhat odd creation, at times emotional, witty, engaging and actually thrilling (even though the film lacks action), but often overwhelming, formulaic and too focussed on so many different elements of character that it forgets to be truly accessible at times, and if the film is intending to only chronicle the titular character in the late 1900s, then fine, but its robs the audience of a final climax, it gives you three act build ups and then a let down as you realise the movie is only concerned with the process, not the result. 3.5/5
