This is a film straight out of 2002. From the poorly-paced superhero origins story, to the edgy music, to the romantic subplot, to the sense of humour, and even to the CGI, this feels like a relic from a time the cinema industry has long-since left behind. Of course this is hardly surprising coming from Sony, who famously opined that "EDM (electronic dance music) is the defining music for Millennials. Wondering if there's an EDM angle somewhere with Spidey?".

Honestly though, it kind of works, just because the film plays everything so straight-faced and completely lacks self-awareness in spite of its own absurdity and antiquity. It's bordering on so-bad-it's-good territory, which is definitely preferable to being the latest in a long line of mundane, by-the-numbers superhero films.

Meh. Despite it's flaws, I did find it enjoyable to watch.

Despite it being messy, chaotic and very like a rollercoaster, this wasn't as bad as it had been made out to be, although I wish I'd been able to watch it without the dumbasses in the back of the cinema yapping and giggling at every tiny little thing. FML.

Tom Hardy was better as Bane, and Venom could have done with more action, a better script and a less corny sense of humour... he wasn't as badass as in the comics... Highly entertaining though and a great watch... If you see this in the cinema, keep your ass in the seat until the very end credits.! Or you'll miss a treat.

It's kind of a mess, but an entertaining mess.

It felt like everything was going a bit too quick. But it settled towards the end and I was emotionally inbvested in the characters. The villain was a douche bag and I really wanted him to get his come-uppance.
Tom hardy did a great job portraying the anti hero. Also, I like how we got layers to venom that goes beyond a black and white portrayal of hero and villain.

Also, venom is the best wingman anyone could ask for - straight up looool.

As I was watching the events of the movie unfold, I was imagining how well meshed the scenes between Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Tom Hardys Venom has potential to be. I hope they continue this version of the venom, as it had a brilliant post credit scene which would be intriguing to see in the form of a sequel.

It wasn’t a movie out of this world but it was good enough!

I think it's fascinating that everybody basically agrees about what this movie is - it's insane, and ridiculous and makes no sense, but Tom Hardy and the Venom/Eddie relationship is great.
But apparently it just depends on how much you are game for the insanity and don't mind all of the many many things that don't work in favour of the one thing that does, or do you focus on the many many things.
I thought it was a glorious fucking insanity and I had a lot of fun with it, after Venom shows up. Before that, it's really boring and that's the worst thing about it. After Venom shows up, yes, it's not great as a quality movie, but it is never ever boring.

Certainly not good - the plot and characters are thin and generic, the effects are at times dodgy (the climax, with two Symbiotes fighting in the middle of the night, is really hard to follow), there are boring moments - but it's watchable, mostly because of Tom Hardy's fun and often unhinged performance (both as Eddie Brock and the cavernous voice shouting obscenities on his head).

"Hey babe, you woke up early."
"Yeah, remember what day it is today?"
"The day of the meeting. Your meeting, remember?"
"I remember, but do you remember the day it is?"
"What day? The day of the meeting?"
"No, the date, today is datenight!"
"Datenight? Oh I forgot"
"You forgot?"
"I forgot."
"You always forget."
"No I dont always forget. You forgot..."
"I forgot what?"
"Your meeting."
"Oh right, I forgot."

: The movie.

I was willing to give this movie a bunch of passes because I enjoy Venom as a character so much. It's a shame that it didn't work as well as I hoped. The plot didn't feature enough connective tissue, the characters were weak, and there wasn't enough Venom. It feels like a serious missed opportunity. If they're lucky enough to make a sequel, maybe it won't be as poorly put together as this one. I'm actually kind of sad about this, the potential was there.

it tries too hard with Eddie Brock and not hard enough with any other character, including Venom himself.
