Like the man it's about, "Jobs" is thin and unassuming, but keeps surprising you with ideas and innovation. -- Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News

There's a void inside the man that Kutcher never manages to fill. -- Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

The film works best early on...watching how the young, ambitious college drop-out uses his wits and his wiles to develop an exciting idea and bring it to life. -- Leonard Maltin, Leonard Maltin's Picks

After a while, you don't care. -- Manohla Dargis, New York Times

If Jobs had been a producer on Jobs, he would have sent it back to the lab for a redesign. -- Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail

Does a fantastic job of giving us a portrait of who Steve Jobs was, but it fails to do it with a critical eye. Kutcher gives us one of the best performances of 2013. -- Michelle Alexandria, Eclipse Magazine
