Film Review: Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021)

Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is assigned to run a story about a prisoner Cletus Kasady. Cletus is bitten by Venom after he infuriates him. The bite makes Cletus the host of the alien symbiote. Eddie and Venom still struggle to live together in peace but during all this, they will need to stop Carnage making carnage in the city.

I felt the sequel of Venom was supposed to be more about the clash between Venom and Carnage but I feel the film is more emphasizing the complication that exists within the body between Eddie and Venom that leads to damages in the city caused by Cletus/Carnage.

I think such a good actor like Woody Harrelson as Carnage has been terribly wasted. He looked like some mediocre actor pressing his character execution too much. And both Cletus/Carnage was not really developed at all. The same problem with Stephen Graham, he looked so average.

It was like watching a CW superhero show where writing makes no sense and the script runs in a jiffy because the time is short. I can’t believe that Andy Serkis directed this.

Well, of course, it is the mid-credit scene that steals the show. But let me tell you this. If you are desperate to watch that mid-credit scene, you do not really have to watch the entire film. You can just watch it after the film concludes.

Venom, just like its predecessor, is there for pure entertainment. Yes, the film relaxes your mood and enjoy all the nonsense Venom annoys Eddie. I have no idea how accurate is this film to the comic book series ‘Maximum Carnage‘. But if you are interested to pass some quality time with your friends getting entertained, Venom is recommended.
