Succinct and straight to the point, Venom 2 does not waste anytime messing about, just straight to the point delivery on comedy and action.

The movie transcends to a sort of superhero buddy-cop genre thing with Venom being the lose canon. If you liked the first Venom movie, you will as well like this one. The focus here is more on the comedic side of things with Tom Hardy having so much fun playing the character it oozes at you from the screen. Venom 2 has a PG rating so do not expect to find things remotely close to what you would see in a Deadpool movie.

The break in communication between the characters is fun to watch, as both fight for individualism within the same body. Venom getting majorly upset that has been downgraded from eating brains to munching on Chickens and chocolate. And Eddie (Hardy) struggling to keep his life together as Venom keeps making a mess of things as he bumbles around. The whole Venom and Eddie being a perfect host and symbiote combination was side stepped a little, with Venom jumping around when he and Eddie had a breakup. What led to this is a string of bad choices started when Eddie interviewed Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson). Venom from seeing Kasady’s cell and listening from Eddie when they spoke was able to deduce where the psychotic serial killer (Kasady) buried the body of his victims.

In a last interview between the two before Kasady gets the lethal injection Kasady bites Eddie and got a bit of Venom in him. From here the symbiote carnage is born as an offspring of Venom living inside Kasady as his host.

Carnage is a red symbiote and from sight you can tell he is more powerful than Venom a black symbiote. Kasady used the new powers he now has to free his lady Shriek and together the trio decided to get revenge on everyone they believe has in one way hurt/hinder them.

The movie uses CG effects to the max to pass across majority of the things you see on screen and does not go overboard doing it. One thing about the movie that I did not feel is the final battle between Venom and Carnage which seemed to drag on for way too long.

With the way this Spiderverse is growing and making massive millions for Sony I do not think Disney has any chance getting their Spider-man (and his friends and villians) back into the MCU.

I really enjoyed the movie and believe you will too if you are a fan.
