Reviews and Closing Statements:

Colin (Review): “A boring excuse for an action sequel even if there are some funny moments with John Malkovich. When you can figure out the ending before “the most brilliant man in the world” villain, there is a problem. “
Ruth (Review): “The A-list cast seems to have a great time making this and it shows. I’m being generous here with my rating, because Mirren, Parker and Malkovich made me laugh so hard in this movie!”
Rodney: “I didn’t like the first, and wasn’t really that surprised that I didn’t find its sequel – featuring an excellent (albeit squandered) cast – all doing their whacky best once again. If you enjoyed the original, you’ll enjoy this. If not, then… well, no.”

Reviews and Closing Statements:

Tom (Review)
Ruth (Review): “Subpar script, lackluster direction and that Kutcher’s lack of dramatic chops contribute to something that looks more like a TV movie. So yeah, this one certainly would NOT end up in my list of favorite Biopics.”
Rodney: “Ashton Kutcher does a great job in playing the elusive Apple founder, only he’s let down by a middle-of-the-road script that doesn’t quite deliver what we WANT to see – some of the real grit and grim reality of the man’s life. Worth a look as a curiosity, but otherwise, it’s something of a miss.”

Reviews and Closing Statements:

Colin (Review): “This almost has nothing good about it except for one scene that feels entirely misplaced. Director Courtney Solomon is America’s Uwe Boll. Not even Ethan Hawke could save this disastrous piece of garbage.”
Rodney: “One of the most horrendously over-edited, egregiously scripted misfires of a film you’re ever likely to see. Casting Disney starlet Selena Gomez against Ethan Hawke and Jon Voight’s lips (yes, his lips) isn’t doing your film any favors. An absolute dog of a film, and hardly worthy of the time it took you to read this capsule review. Avoid. Please.”
