(M, 128 minutes.) Now playing.

As Steve Jobs, the visionary who helped found Apple and later returned to make the Silicon Valley company the benchmark for consumer electronics, Ashton Kutcher provides bits and pieces of a famously prickly character.

He has the forward-leaning gait and the propensity for belittling criticism, but he never gets close to truly embodying such a complex and fascinating figure. Then again, Joshua Michael Stern's movie doesn't give Kutcher that much to work with.

This is a ''Great Man'' biopic, set in its ways and generally free of complications. When Jobs pitches new products in the film, haloed light often surrounds Kutcher's head, while reaction shots begin with wondrous silence then swiftly reach rapturous applause.


In the film's view, Jobs was an angel long before his death in 2011. Jobs begins with the in-house announcement of the iPod in 2001, a game-changing moment in terms of technology and culture, but most of the narrative focuses on the 1970s and '80s, when Jobs went from barefoot hippy to personal-computer mogul by the age of 25, before succumbing to hubris.

You can spot the anecdotes and quotes underlined by writer Matt Whiteley in his copy of Walter Isaacson's authoritative 2011 biography, Steve Jobs, and despite the simplification and cutting away of detail, there's a straightforward story to be told.

Jobs gave all to his vision and people who failed him were shunned. The problem is, that approach is formulaic: it could as easily apply to a gifted athlete or an ambitious criminal. Josh Gad gives a sweet, open-hearted performance as Steve Wozniak, the geek with a soldering iron who built the first Apple computers that Jobs took to the world, but his growing disdain for Jobs' selfishness in the name of greatness doesn't resonate.

As Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher's The Social Network, Jesse Eisenberg constantly suggested a contradictory struggle; Kutcher just screams then stares. The film gives more time to the failed Lisa computer than the daughter of the same name who a youthful Jobs tried to ignore, and while his public feats were ultimately transformative, ignoring his personal trials again deprives Jobs of insight.

The result is hackneyed and uninspiring, and it's difficult to imagine the demanding Jobs having a good word to say about this iFail.
