| Ignore the critics.
Don't listen to the critics whom are desperately trying to remain relevant in a time where the opinion of the audience truly matters.

The movie is geniunely good. What it isn't is fantastic however.

-buildup. The intro of the movie was fine. Nothing spectacular but certainly progressed the story into the right direction. Though it did linger on for a tad bit too long.

-The plot while amusing, is definitely lacking and drops the ball at least at a certain point, which i cant really dive into here due to spoilers. This certainly is the biggest problem with the movie.

-CGI. Not great but certainly far from bad!

-Venom. The symbiote is awesome and i loved the bonding with Tom Hardy's character which truly moved the movie forward. Definitely the strongest point within the movie and was eager for more!

-Overall. Ignore the damn paid critics. They are a dying breed and shouldve been put out of their misery years ago. This movie is entertaining. While i was dissapointed with the lack of a true dark tone, it wasnt all pure comedy either. it was a decent balance.

Check this movie out for yourself and vote accordingly. This movie deserves that at the least.

8/10

Trivia

When "Screen Rant" asked Tom Hardy about his Venom voice, Hardy says, "Redman, Busta Rhymes, James Brown, as ingredients. And I played with it. The fusion to create what you hear, which sounds nothing like them."


Quotes

Astronaut JJ Jameson, III: Life Foundation Control, this is LF1. The specimens are secured, and we're heading home.
Mission Control Operator: Roger, LF1. You are a go for reentry.


Goofs

The symbiotes at the lab are shown to reject and kill most hosts, yet Venom and Riot change hosts repeatedly throughout the film whenever they want or need to with no ill effects. Dr. Skirth explains that hosts must be compatible to survive, but the nature of this compatibility is never explained, so it can be intricate enough to explain all the host-symbiot interactions in the movie. Also, it appears that symbiotes can sense compatibility from afar, so they choose the hosts they need (the symbiotes in the lab aren't given a choice). It is also possible that Dr. Skirth was wrong and symbiotes can assimilate or kill a host at will. Indeed, Venom was killing Eddie at first simply because he was hungry. It is also possible that symbiotes learn from experience and become better at assimilation. Indeed, it seems that as time goes on more and more hosts survive in the lab experiments.


Crazy Credits

In its entirety, including the two mid-credits sequences, the closing credits sequence lasts for nineteen minutes.


Alternate Versions

The theatrical release featured an extended clip from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) as a post-credits scene. It was however not included in the internet version.
