      Andy H Amazing movie about the personal computing revolution Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/22/23 Full Review William C Hampered with a slow start, the movie comes into it's own and serves as a great biography of the rise of Microsoft and Apple. It shows a unique view of Apple and Steve Jobs that you can't find today as the film was made when Apple was on its knees, well before the success of the iPhone put them on top of the world. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 09/20/23 Full Review SMarioSJ 8 I loved it a lot, without a doubt one of the best movies I have seen that talks about the history of the two famous companies that we know today, A good story where he tells us about the beginning of these two companies, how they treated each other, what they did and what conflicts they faced, this film will undoubtedly be liked by programmers, How to young people or those who are not programmers And to those who have heard of these their companies and did not know their origin and what they did. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/16/23 Full Review Audience Member that was amazingly great. i sure enjoyed it and will definitely rewatch it Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic recreation of an early series of events in the computing industry !
