Venom: Movie Review

Venom: Movie Review

Rhi Rhi Deschin, Staff Reporter

Venom isn’t the best movie I’ve seen, and it isn’t the worst. The movie Venom is a basic introduction story about how Eddie Brock, played by Tom Hardy, meets a Symbiote called Venom. As with most movies, the beginning isn’t always the best, but is necessary to pay attention to. In this movie, you see how Brock goes about his life and his job in San Francisco. As six months pass, it’s the end of the beginning, and Brock meets Venom. While the beginning of the movie is easy to follow, it was short and rushed. Even though the start is dull, the rest of the film has its moments, such as the comedy. I wouldn’t say it was hilarious, but it was definitely funny.

Brock has to get used to having another being inside of him that can control his body at any time, which is scary to think about. Tom Hardy does a great job showing how disoriented and scared Brock is.

According to Collider, Venom is based on two comics Venom: Lethal Protector and Planet of the Symbiotes. While Venom first appears in Spider-Man 3, it isn’t relevant at all to the 2018 Venom. If you watch this movie, don’t get confused as I did.

Be sure to watch the end credits scene, as there’s sure to be a sequel. In the end, I’d give this a 3 out of 5 paws as the movie could be better.
