Venom: Saved by something it wasn't supposed to have
When I heard about a Venom movie, I was excited.
When I heard Hardy was to play Brock, I was concerned.
When I saw the trailer, I lost all interest.
But truth be told, it wasn't as bad as feared but it certainly isn't everything it should have been.
With a heavily modified version of Venoms origin story this R rated movie separate from the Marvel Universe is a watchable but ultimately uninspired affair.
When I first heard about the film it was said to not only be R-Rated but delving into the realms of horror. Truth be told the end product is not horror, it's comedy. The idea of Venom being a comedy is insane, yet is the only reason I rated the film as highly as I have.
It's actually quite funny and instead of the badass in the comics Eddie Brock is a loveable loser type that Hardy played considerably well.
A major cgi-fest this 100 million costing Hollywood effort is saved by the humour it simply shouldn't have even had.
The story is generic, it really has nothing very original to offer but a fair few laughs make it more watchable than by all rights it should have been.
Venom is better than I expected.
Hardy is better than I expected.
But it's certainly not the Venom movie we wanted nor deserve.
Some great action sequences
Quite funny, oddly
Another "Tweaked" origin story
Some of the sfx are actually quite bad
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
I don't remember Eddie Brock being a comedy character
Tom Hardy isn't entirely useless
Jenny Slate > Michelle Williams
