"Venom" is a textbook case of a comic-book film that's unexciting in its ho-hum competence, and even its visual-effects bravura.

Fleischer made a better comedy-horror with Zombieland, but Venom's a decent buddy actioner. You might even laugh your head off...

Why can't the movie make Venom properly dirty? The PG-13 rating seriously hurts.

Venom is riddled with the poison of dullness.

"Venom" feels like pretty weak poison.

A significant problem in a film full of them is that Eddie comes off as a dope, an eager dufus hardly convincing as a boundary-pushing journo or someone who can out-think a titan of technology.

Venom is neither triumph nor train-wreck. It's a mediocre origin story, a superhero host that sadly fails to bond with its comedy parasite.

Definitely not for those who don't want to have fun. Tom Hardy brings his A-game (and smart improvisation) to this. Truly captured the millennial culture and humour in this origin story that well stands alone from the Spiderman series --- just check the internet and the memes and see how everybody just loves Eddie Brock and Venom (something critics didn't...

Tom Hardy looks like he's just running with it, he knows its absolutely insane and he's just like a kid in a lolly shop making his performance so nutty and full pelt over the top that it works, its entertaining just because he makes it so . What doesn't work is that the audience doesn't really care about any of the characters, to me thats where it's a let...

All I knew when I went into the movie it what I'd seen in the trailer and the old Spiderman movie... so was a bit of newbie for this. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Had great action, cool special effects. Tom Hardy was totally awesome as Eddie/Venom. Go see it on the big screen :)

After being baffled by the critics who gave this movie a bad rating I decided to go & see Venom with my great nephew & both of us absolutely enjoyed it. The transformation from Eddie Brock to Venom was superb, Tom Hardy did a good job playing his role as the main character & the humor was also hilarious and in the right time. My only complaint about this...
