'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Movie Review 🎥
Tom Hardy returns once again as Venom.
Back in 2018, we saw the release of VENOM starring Tom Hardy as journalist Eddie Brock who contracts a symbiot to become Venom. 3 years later, Venom: Let There Be Carnage was exclusively released in cinemas on Friday 15th October.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage follows the story of Eddie Brock (played by Tom Hardy) who tries to revive his failing career whilst struggling with his symbiot to maintain a sense of normalcy. In the midst of living a semi-normal life, Brock is met with serial killer, Cletus Kasady (played by Woody Harrelson) who becomes infected with his own symbiote, Carnage.
Despite including A LOT of CGI, the film's visuals are incredible (which is totally expected from a Marvel movie!). This was another thing that really stood out for us. After watching every movie produced by Marvel Studios, it still blows us away how they create such incredible action sequences.
With only being 98 minutes long, we went into the cinema wondering how it would be possible to fit everything in for such a short movie (short for Marvel anyway) BUT it worked. This movie was most definitely a more simplified, focused and intimate film in comparison to the 2018 movie.
Also, can we just say that we think Venom is hilarious?! In the first movie, we were a little scared of Venom not going to lie, but in the sequel, we absolutely LOVED him! From his sarcasm and humour to his love for Sonny and Cher (if you know, you know), we really hope we get to see more of Venom in the future!
One of the highlights for us was watching the problematic relationship between Eddie and Venom. The cheeky dynamic and on and off again relationship between the two is something we love to see!
If you are a hardcore Marvel fan then you will know that you can’t leave once the credits start rolling. The post-credit sequence builds up a lot of excitement and appears to see the big screen Venom on a path that will lead him to an on-screen encounter with our favourite Spider-Man, Tom Holland.
Overall, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is a fun watch. In our opinion, it was on par with the first one and we were kind of hoping for a bit more action! It most definitely takes the character’s story forward to interlinking with other movies and promises a much larger world for Eddie Brock that seems to be more connected to the MCU than we know and love. I think we speak on behalf of other Marvel fans, that we are so excited to see how his story will unfold.
A definite must watch for Marvel fans for sure.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is available to watch in cinemas now.
