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.

Yep I’m watching this! I loved Venom in the comics when I was a kid so i will love this movie! a Good movie for the family!
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.
