The evolution story of Marvel's most enigmatic, complex and badass character - Venom! Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancee. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers - transforming him into Venom. Will these powers be enough for this new lethal protector to defeat great evil forces, especially against the far stronger and more weaponised symbiote rival, Riot?

We... Are... Venom.
All of us have something inside that just boils with rage. Someone (or something) gets triggered and wouldn’t it feel great to set that free? For Eddie Brock, Venom is about to be unleashed, and the dark side of his personality will literally come out… it’s going to be a wild ride.
Two Anti-Heroes In One Body
Eddie, played by Tom Hardy, is the ego-driven, obsessive reporter driven to expose the powerful and corrupt. He’s like so many of us, the defender of the innocent looking out for the little man. But unfortunately, he gets in his own way, takes shortcuts and has an ego and a temper. In Venom, Eddie is trying to be a better version of who he was before, and the only way he becomes better is when he meets up with Venom.

In short....Yes it was. Now I’m not going to say that this is the greatest comic book movie ever made. It struggles with not having a Spider-Man presence and at times it slows down a little too much. But other then that this film is a blast. Tom Hardy is brilliant as Eddie/Venom and it’s there dynamic that pushes the film forward and creates the most laugh out loud moment. The action is great the speacial effects are pretty good for the most part(The end battle gets a little confusing) and it doesn’t take itself too seriously and that’s the important thing.
I love the MCU films and the DCEU films but Venom is different it’s not weighed down by numerous other films that came before it is just itself. Not tooserious like Black Panther or too earth shatteringly important like Avengers Infinity War. Venom is just a fun movie. Not one for young kids but certainly a good time for adults.
And, actually, found this to be much more entertaining than any of the critics reviews suggested. Far more in fact and I'd go so far as to say it is better than some other Marvel films which have been roundly lauded such as the Black Panther which I found to be overblown.
I can see where the issues lie of course. Do they take Venom down the horror route or the funny path and to an extent the producers tried both with consequent mixed messages. That being said, it mostly works and in the end I think the general direction was to be more 'Deadpool' than alien monster. The only issue is that once humour was injected then it should have been made more full on.
Anyway, action abounds and effects whilst not maybe up there with the best of the Marvel films is still pretty good. The actual Venom character develops a black humour as the film progresses and hopefully if more films are made then this should be made more of.
Bit of light romance and a reasonable - if predictable for a superhero movie - storyline and overall a generally fun and diverting film.
I agree that Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed were wasted but at 90 minutes I think the focus on Tom Hardy and Venom as a pairing was the correct way to go as the film does not outstay it's welcome.
Plenty of time for fleshing out the characters in following episodes, assuming Ms Williams signs up for them, which as a great actress I sincerely hope she does and next time gets the screen time she deserves.
Critics hate this, but a bit like other recent DC films the audience's seem to lap it up, however it is Tom Hardy's film and a bit like Margo Robbie in Suicide squad is the reason the franchise stands a chance
