Ok, some slurppy writing and many killings are the traits of this Venom movie and I have to say it was fun to see.
The movie didn’t have the Disney/Marvel magic, but Sony has found another goldmine and the ending credit introducing Carnage was awesome. Sony has decided to turn this movie to a franchise of many other Venom movies to come.

Our Eddie Brock is played by Tom Hardy and he is well suited for the role. He for me was the best thing the movie had to offer and it was fun seeing the way he and Venom merged and took on the world.
You may not be a fan of the movie’s various change in pace, at one time we are on a high speed chase, the next a long monologue. Then we are climbing skyscrapers only to get there and leave a note. Aside for the inconsistency in the tone of the movie and everyone else being not up to par with Tom Hardy, this was a fun movie.

Marvel may have to wait a long time before they can get their hands on the Spider-man franchise again. Because as we all know Sony has a huge well of characters in this franchise that they can just spin off.

The movie starts with an intro into Eddie Brock’s life. He is an investigative journalist who is after everyone bad and seems to care less the way he gets things done.
Brock was given a case to cover a man named Carlton Drake. Carlton to the world is a good person trying to make the world a better place, but as we get to see – reverse was the case. Carlton had a moral problem, he was focused on result and it didn’t matter to him who got hurt in the process.
Brock decided to go after Carlton instead and it cost him his job, his livelihood, his girlfriend and she also lost her job.

Carlton was the one who brought the symbiotes to earth and he has been testing it on humans hoping to find a good host for the symbiotes. Things were getting dark very quickly and one of the research scientist reached out to Eddie to investigate. Eddie broke into the facility and while searching about sees a homeless woman which he knew. He broke her out, but she attacks him and transfers her symbiote into him and she dies.

That symbiote was Venom. Eddie and Venom then begun a relationship that was not going well at first. Venom having his own plan like the other symbiotes to turn earth into a feeding ground, later changed his mind and he and Eddie decided to work together to bring down Carlton. (Yeap, the mind changing was silly.)

The movie has been a huge financial uplift to Sony and we can rest assured more movies will follow.
