A great mix of 'technical terror' - aka computer-generated effects and comedy. Chill out, sit back and take in the show. Some great lines!!
Good movie a really good take on a villain that is also a hero
The movie was great to watch. It was funny. I am looking forward of watching the movie again on DVD.
Loved it ...... and the add humor was great !... definitely can't wait for the 2nd one :)
An atypical film and story with a nice ending.
Never ending action. Entire movie was non stop. Really, really cool.
Venom takes a long time to get rolling but when it does, the film is not half bad. Tom Hardy is a physical actor and his skills come through for the most part. The dialogue between himself and Venom is funny-most of the time. It tries to be like Dead Pool (first one), with wit and dark humour but somehow it comes off a bit too silly. The bad guy is one dimensional and the story is sloppy, but since you are strapped in, the ride is decent. One of the better marvel films.
I found this movie highly entertaining. Looking forward to the next 👩?🎤
I love this movie
Good movie !
I haven't had a lot of worse lately. But Venom got to be the worse movie I've seen all year. Even with Tom Hardy, who was extraordinary in Lock. That movie was just him inside the car and he manages to make it interesting. Here, however many million of dollars and special effects and they manage to turn out a pile of manure!
I cannot believe they are making this crap for us and kids to watch. Absolute garbage! Horrible story line, and terrible idea--looks more of a horror plot than comic. Too much foul language. Not happy!!
He doesn't have a clue what is happening to him and neither do we. Hardy's painful over-acting here is on par with Travolta's work in Battlefield Earth.
This movie is one of the most fun movies I have seen in a while. Tom Hardy is just amazing as Eddie. He doesn't have a clue about what is happening to him and the internal conflicts between what he is and what he is becoming is a treat to watch. Many funny moments. Not for little kids but still not a lot of blood and gore. Very little bad language, but a lot of action and special effects.
probably the only movie i wanted to go see in the theater.
I'm not much of a fan of these superhero type movies but I loved this one. Love the Venom character. The back and forth between venom and the eddie character is so funny.
Marvel is really digging at the bottom of the barrel. Space creatures are not heros. Ridicusly stupid made movie.
Don't waist your money. Alian takes over your body; Really? How stupid!
If your a huge Marvel fan & really love the original Spiderman Trilogy with Toby Maguire then you will love the new Marvel Venom movie. I don't agree of what any of the Critics say about Venom. Venom should be taken more seriously of how great of a movie it is. I can't wait for the new Venom Sequel & Trilogy that Marvel is currently working on.
I loved this movie, but maybe that's cause i know and like the Venom character as well as being easily entertained. If you're like me and will enjoy a movie with fairly good acting, a bunch of fun, action, and some laughs then you'll enjoy it... If you're looking for a blockbuster that's gonna rake in all the academy awards or an aspiring Hollywood movie critic (who i can only imagine the people who gave this movie less than 3 stars must be) then maybe don't watch it.
Despite its bad reviews, I really enjoyed the movie! I always love a good Marvel film, and Venom was no exception!
fantastic movie that mixes action horror and comedy, this is one of my favorite marvel movies, Venom is a fun fresh comic book film !
I really liked this movie in some parts the story line get a bit rushed but overall a great movie to see!
I went into this movie knowing that I was going to like it but what I didn’t expect was just how much I was going to like it. Is it a perfect? No it’s not, it is a mess in some places with some things that don’t make sense but what it comes down to is it’s an enjoyable action movie with some great humour about a boy and his symbiote. I really like how it is a bit darker compared to the MCU movies which I love but this is different which I also love. Tom Hardy plays the role of Eddie Brock very well and it will be great to see him in hopefully an R rated Carnage movie!!
This Movie Rocks!!!! I had a really good time! Tom Hardy was enjoyable!
Whats not to like? Good entertainment and Tom Hardy is awesome
What dime store sold them these "special" effects?!
Awful! A slooow start and wimpy lead character made for a movie I thought would never end. Too silly and predictable for adults and probably way too scary for younger kids. 2 Stars
👍 good one!
Goes to show you can't trust critics. They try to hard to sound like they know what people like and it's better than a 30% audiences are giving it 89% so that tells you something
This was a great movie very surprised of how they brought Venom into the movie.Lots of action,plot was great don't listen to the critics A must see .Looks like Spiderman will have some trouble with this guy..
Good movie! Tom Hardy is great as the bumbling reporter who stumbles into a mutated condition. Remember, it's a Marvel movie! Tongue-in-cheek humor, action and romance. Enjoy!
I thought this movie was going to be a lot worse. Tom Hardy saved this movie from being a terrible heap of garbage.
Actor Hardy made this movie. It was funny and full of action. I am not much of a Marvel movie viewer, but this one was a highly entertaining way to spend a rainy day. Stay for the credits and see a cameo of another Marvel villain to appear on Venom 2. I hope they make a sequel.
It was exciting and humorous. As always, Tom Hardy does an amazing job!
Maybe 2 stars. I have a bad habit of falling asleep if I lose interest in a movie. I can't comment on the movie because I fell asleep. CGI was very good though for the parts I did see. I have to stop paying full price for snoozers.
Great fun popcorn movie. Better than most of the comics movies. Went in with low expectations; came out completely satisfied. I do not listen to critics. They live in a different world than the people dishing out their money hoping to be entertained.
Entertaining Marvel movie with an anti-hero! Lots of exciting action with comic remarks. The dialog Is hilarious between Venom and Eddy Brock. Clearly, Tom Hardy did an incredible job! Cannot wait for a sequel with Carnage!
I thought this flick was terrible . I was excited to see it but left very disappointed . Best wait to watch on netflix
It was scary and very good.
It was ok but nothing especially exciting like Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman movies are. I dont understand why it is a Marvel movie because Venom is not a superhero at all. He is only a man who has an ET in his body influencing his behavior. The movie could have been better if it had been more serious.
Tom Hardy is a terrific Eddie Brock. He’s a likeable ‘loser’, and incredibly funny. Tom Hardy does very well in a comedy/action role. And the dialogue between Eddie and Venom is hilarious!
Worst Marvel movie by far
Kinda found this rather boring. Plot was OK, nothing crafty, and acting was 'meh'. Mom Hardy and his sweaty shirts made me uncomfortable, wanted to go home and take a shower. The whole thing just seemed rushed. Didn't matter who lived or died, not connection to any character, good or bad.
