Trivia

According to an interview, Paul J. Franklin had his VFX team study the movement of slime molds, jellyfish, and amoeba in order to come up with the visual effects that represent Venom's movement. See more »

Goofs

Eddie wears a ring on his left forefinger. When he's watering his plant and when he's walking to Drake's rocket while talking to Venom there are a few shots where his ring is on his right forefinger. It's because the camera is mirrored. His hairstyle is different too. See more »

Ignore the critics.
3 October 2018 | by Chuckles010See all my reviews

Don't listen to the critics whom are desperately trying to remain relevant in a time where the opinion of the audience truly matters.

The movie is geniunely good. What it isn't is fantastic however.

-buildup. The intro of the movie was fine. Nothing spectacular but certainly progressed the story into the right direction. Though it did linger on for a tad bit too long.

-The plot while amusing, is definitely lacking and drops the ball at least at a certain point, which i cant really dive into here due to spoilers. This certainly is the biggest problem with the movie.

-CGI. Not great but certainly far from bad!

-Venom. The symbiote is awesome and i loved the bonding with Tom Hardy's character which truly moved the movie forward. Definitely the strongest point within the movie and was eager for more!

-Overall. Ignore the damn paid critics. They are a dying breed and shouldve been put out of their misery years ago. This movie is entertaining. While i was dissapointed with the lack of a true dark tone, it wasnt all pure comedy either. it was a decent balance.

Check this movie out for yourself and vote accordingly. This movie deserves that at the least.

8/10
