Venom QuickViews

October 20, 2018 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

For fans who were divisive about Venom’s appearance in Spider-Man 3, get ready for a new take on the classic Marvel antihero character.

 

When Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) gets fired from his job as a journalist, he becomes part of an experiment that bonds him and a symbiote together. With his new powers Eddie will have to fight against his own demons while its alter ego takes on a personality of its own kind.

 

Even though critics didn’t think this stand-alone film stood on its own without Spider-Man, it still is a lot of fun to enjoy thanks to great performances by Hardy, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed, funny dialogue and humor, a pace and flow that flies by fast and spectacular visual effects.

 

Office Rating: 10/10
