Comment: While the "jobs" more fawns subject, the film falls flat

PARK CITY, Utah - The highly anticipated biopic "jobs" opens in 2001, when Apple co-founder iconic arrives at Town Hall on the campus of Cupertino Apple with good news. A secret team, Steve Jobs told his employees built a product that will revolutionize the way everyone listens to music. Before he could even show them the iPod, employees have seen their feet, eyes wild and ecstatic applause and finally suppressed by swelling strings in the background. It is a scene that sets the tone for all that is to follow: for most of its two hours movies, "jobs" rarely stops to cheer about it.

The team behind "employment", which was directed by Joshua Michael Stern, began working on the project shortly before retirement Jobs of Apple in 2011. The first scenario writer Matt Whiteley covers the life of Jobs from 1974, when Jobs took classes at Reed College in Oregon, in 2001, when he announced the iPod to Apple employees. Along the way "jobs" covers most of the major milestones of his time about Apple: Apple I, Apple II, Lisa and Macintosh are all presented in the development, employment (a worker Ashton Kutcher) works to bring his vision of personal computing to the masses. Jobs to John Sculley hand choice to become Apple CEO, hoping that his marketing expertise will help the company surpass IBM in the PC market. But Sculley disappoints Jobs, alienating allies board of directors of Apple and was ousted from the company he founded. Only the near-death experience in 1997 Apple is sufficient to bring it to Apple - first as a consultant and then as "interim" CEO - and the success of the iMac Bondi Blue, Apple has a upward again.

It is a story that will be familiar to readers of Walter Isaacson biography recent employment or any number of other stories of the society. The opportunity to "job" was to make these legendary events in the history of Silicon Valley on the screen, and to stage the contradictions of a man who remains unknowable even to some of his relatives.

The film gives a shot. Kutcher skepticism when it was announced that the film progresses, despite an uncanny resemblance to the man he was going to play. But he threw himself into the role, living jobs in his manners and gestures while printing the most honorable man's voice. Kutcher also capture some jobs "deliberate, slightly arched above. At times, such as during a sequence in which pleasant Jobs recruits team members Macintosh Kutcher disappears into the role.

The filmmakers do not show jobs being a jerk: he sleeps around, he yells at people, he parks in handicapped spaces. He persuaded Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad) to perform critical work for him, but is how it is paid, then it can dramatically underpay his best friend. An hour into the film, it takes a person during an argument about the availability of police on Lisa.

However, the filmmakers are more interested in jobs will show the work of a genius. Time and again, minor characters to explain why something can not be done; Kutcher-as-smiles enigmatically employment and waves away from their concerns. (It is left to someone else, away from the screen, to turn his dreams into reality.) We look negotiate employment outside a shop owner computer parts, conferences team being Lisa and ride to the rescue of Macintosh. Whenever he talks about how Apple technology is the process of improving the lives of ordinary people. Colleagues to discuss with him, but they are never anywhere because their parts are poorly written and filmmakers have no interest in showing their mistaken about his work. The film evokes the failure of Lisa, but has no interest in what Jobs has played in this part failure, all failures in Apple 'jobs' are presented as the result of conservative, backward- thought leaders accountable to their shareholders. The result is that the viewer spends two hours watching cardboard cutouts lose arguments for Ashton Kutcher.

Kutcher speaks at least 40 percent of the lines in "jobs". Unfortunately, there is almost no one to play off of. Dermot Mulroney at Apple investor Mike Markkula, shakes his head in excess jobs "without ever really challenging. JK Simmons as chairman of Apple board oversees eviction Jobs is a cartoon villain. Women in the film barely exist, an actress who plays Chris-Ann Brennan has a unique under-written scene Tell a job she wears her young baby years later in the film, a small scene shows employment home with his wife. Only Gad, as Wozniak gets a scene standing tall man - as Woz left Apple, he criticizes Jobs lose his humanity in the midst of a stubborn pursuit of making good products. This is something that even the most fervent admirers of Jobs grapple with, and the film could have used more of it.

Others write things "jobs" fails, mistakes, or avoided altogether. My primary disappointment was shallow in the way the film felt, due to the long list of antecedents. Jobs in the early days "colleagues had to fight with a man who smelled bad, crying often, who yelled constantly, who missed the deadline, which overspent its budget by millions. He did this by service products we love and use every day, yet his obsessions took a toll on those around him. It also inspired others to do the best work of their lives, pushing farther than ever imagined that they can go. It is great drama is in all this, but it is not to be found in the "saccharine jobs."
