Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Steve Jobs is one of the most influential people to ever grace the world of technology. His skills as a game-changing entrepreneur helped alter the everyday world that we live in. Jobs is a movie about Steve’s early life and how he eventually started up Apple, got fired and then eventually rehired. Jobs is a film about Apple’s history and Steve’s temper and inability to work well with others. Jobs is also a misfire of emotions, rarely showing us the real Steve Jobs and instead showing us what we’ve already read a million times before in the newspapers and magazines. Joshua Michael Stern‘s biopic is a lengthy exploration not of a man and his legacy, but of his already known achievements and how he accomplished a few of them."
