Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

When investigative journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) goes sniffing for a scoop involving a sinister doctor (Riz Ahmed), he gets a whole lot more than just a story. He gets a symbiote. This mysterious goo can transform Eddie into a superhuman hybrid, granting him unbelievable powers – if only he can learn to control it. Together as Venom, Eddie and his symbiote could be a force for good or for evil. The question is: just how anti is this new hero going to be? Venom comes from director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and also stars Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate.

Trivia

  • This film is well-known to have an extremely difficult production history. The film was originally envisioned as a direct spin-off from Spider-Man 3 (2007), though Topher Grace was not slated to return to the role. Shortly after the films were rebooted, the film was announced once again, though this time within continuity of the Webb series. Chris Zylka expressed interest in playing the characters Flash Thompson iteration, which was currently running in the comics at that time. Once The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) was released, Sony announced that "Venom: Carnage" would be a part of their Spider-Man Cinematic Universe. Soon afterward, Sony and Marvel decided to collaborate with the Spider-Man films, opting to reboot again, and placing a Venom spin-off on hold. Though Sony wishes to continue with their spin-offs of Spider-Man, no word has been announced on future projects as of February 2018.

Goofs

  • Anne picks up Eddie/Venom at the Transamerica Pyramid then heads to a hospital by driving along the Embarcadero (the street that goes along the waterfront). This street is out of the way to go to any hospital in the city with numerous other streets offering more direct and quicker routes.

Some of the scenes are really goofy, and the pace is strange like it takes time for Eddie to become venom, but then the movie seems like moving rush to the end. However, I think it’s a fine movie, I had a lot of fun, the bad critics seems harsh.

Venom wants to be something different, an off-kilter dark comedy whose protagonist doesn’t need to be cleaned up so he can fight alongside Iron Man someday. But it’s also terrified to step out of line, and the stench of fear overwhelms whatever wisps of fresh air have sneaked through the cracks in the doorway.

Like his hungry symbiote latching onto Eddie, Fleischer cunningly fastens a malicious irreverence onto an otherwise lacklustre superhero movie. But the symbiosis doesn’t quite take.

If you are going to Venom for cool superhero action — or for compelling characters, pulpy science-fiction, impressive special effects, a parable about corporations run amok, or a single significant connection to Spider-Man — you will be sorely disappointed. If you can look past all of that (and the dreadful first hour), your reward is Hardy, delivering one of the all-time great unhinged performances.
