Marvels VENOM – is He a Symbiotic Alien or an Ugly Stand-Up Comic
**Full Disclosure: I received a free screening of this in exchange for my review, but not to worry, all opinions are 100% mine.
Columbia Pictures’ upcoming film VENOM is set to open in theaters nationwide on October 5th. Starring Tom Hardy, Marvels VENOM will take you on an action-packed journey through the story of one of their greatest and most complex characters.
I am a movie blogger, who usually doesn’t care much for the superhero movies. My grand kids love them however, so I have watched my share. VENOM had the usual villain, in this case a super rich genius, who wanted to establish a new super human species by using parasites he had brought back from a space mission to enter human bodies and make these humans better than they were. The best part of the movie to me was when the alien Venom entered journalist Eddie Brock’s body and Eddie was trying to find out what had happened to him. I mean throwing up fast food, going crazy with loud noises and having a voice in you head talking to you would make most people take notice. As the movie progressed, Eddie slowly came to terms with his dilemma and Venom starting taking charge of Eddie’s body and cracking jokes along the way. The worse part of the movie was the motorcycle chase scene which seemed to go on for hours. By the time it was over, I figured everyone in San Francisco had to have been dead or in the hospital. I did enjoy the movie, but I think it was Venom’s humor that saved the day for me.
