”Venom” is what I can only describe as a neat mess. On one side, Tom Hardy is good, but on the other side, it’s a 2-hour loud noise fest with one of the most lazy villains to date. This is my review of of Venom.
”Venom” follows Eddie Brock, a reporter who was just fired from his job and broke up with his girlfriend. He’s already pretty messed up from this, but when a specimen that broke loose from a crashed ship owned by the life foundation (I’ll discuss that later) gets into him, his life gets even more out of hand. When it is shown the specimen can talk to him inside his head, the specimen reveals it’s name. It’s name is “Venom”.
If you’re confused by what you just read, no worries, I am too. The plot may be a bit sloppy, but the plot does exist and enjoyable to see unfold.
The acting in this movie is decent, ranging from a great performance from Tom Hardy to an alright one by Riz Ahmed. I feel as is most of the actors did their best with what they needed to say.
Characters: The character of Eddie Brock is great. I especially enjoyed his relationship with Venom. Other than that, most of the others characters don’t possess his character’s charm, especially Carlton Drake, who serves as a terrible villain with zero motivation whatsoever, with his goal to put random creatures known as symbiotes inside random homeless people. (Uncomfortable pause) Okay, that’s not exactly what he wants to do, but the way the movie portrayed it, that’s what I think. Another character is Anne Weying, who is really nothing more than your average movie girlfriend. Overall, the characters are a mixed bag.
Finally, the action. This is one of the best parts of the movie. It was insanely entertaining to see Venom/Eddie Brock battle a bunch of people while the movie’s music is playing in the background.
Overall, this movie is 5/10 for me. Thoughts on this movie vary, and now I can see why.
