Venom: Film Review – Infectiously Enjoyable
Verdict: Tom Hardy is the perfect host for this angsty symbiote.
It’s no news that there are plenty of superhero movies and franchises currently. But they are mostly about a hero that’s trying to save the world. Venom, on the other hand, is about someone who’s mostly trying to save himself. Director Ruben Fleischer is here with a film that’s darkly funny and immensely entertaining, mostly because it is about a guy who knows that he’s a loser.
What’s Venom About:
Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a journalist who is accidentally taken over by an alien life form while investigating the shady things going on at Life Foundation. Life Foundation is a company headed by Carlton Lake (Riz Ahmed) who has pioneered space exploration to bring down alien life forms that he believes will save humans from extinction. These alien life forms are symbiotes that need a host to survive. One of them is called Venom who bonds with Eddie Brock. Now, the two of them have to work together to survive against those trying to kill them.
Tom Hardy is, as always, a joy to watch. The best parts of the film are the interactions between Eddie Brock and Venom. It’s refreshing to see a protagonist who has obvious flaws. Despite being an investigative reporter who wants to bring out the truth, Eddie does not always make morally sound decisions and do what you would think he would do. When Venom comes into the picture, the unexpected begins. The two characters are not conventionally likable, but it’s Tom Hardy’s performance that makes you root for them.
Just like there are Tom Hardy moments, there are also Venom moments. There are some badass action sequences where we get to see the full extent of Venom’s powers. There are also some funny moments which arise from Venom having a sense of humor and no sense of propriety.
The rest of the cast has also given commendable performances. Riz Ahmed is fantastic as an unethical billionaire. Michelle Williams plays perhaps the most likable character in the film as a sensible love interest who can hold her own during crazy situations.
With an alien life form that looks terrifying in its full avatar, there are some scary moments too. Unlike a superhero film with slick costumes, these symbiotes are demonic parasites straight out of a sci-fi horror movie. Yet, despite the violence and a few mildly terrifying bits, it manages to never be too graphic.
What Could Have Been Better
There are a few scenes that end abruptly. While they help the story move faster, it can also feel unsatisfactory at times.
Why You Should Watch
If you have been watching superhero movies, Venom will show you the flip side of the classic hero. Tom Hardy never disappoints and Venom is another instance where he has played a strong lead. There is a lot of fun to be had when Venom is unleashed.
P. S. Don’t forget to stay back for a mid-credits scene and an end-credits scene.
VENOM MOVIE REVIEW
TIMES OF INDIA
Neil Soans, Oct 5, 2018, 01.40 AM IST
Venom Story: A bold reporter’s desperate attempt to redeem his career backfires when he is infected by a parasite who brings out his vicious alter-ego.
Venom Review: Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is an intrepid journalist, who doesn’t know when to hold back, and this costs him dearly when he loses his job and more. His mistake? Taking on Carlton Drake – a businessman who considers himself to be a visionary, albeit with sketchy morals. Not to be outdone, Brock tries to probe into Drake’s shady activities when he encounters a mind-reading extra-terrestrial being that fuses with him giving him extraordinary powers. Brock is now left to choose how he uses his newfound abilities. If there was any doubt that Tom Hardy was best suited to take on the dual personalities of Venom/ Eddie Brock, they quickly dissipate once the interplay between the two begins. Hardy has handled roles that require him to juggle between personas, and he demonstrates all his prior experience here. Once ‘possessed’, Hardy infuses a playful yet dark aura to Brock that works well to bring some frenetic vigour to the film.
But the screenplay doesn’t allow us more insight into the moral conundrum going through his mind. This proves to be frustrating when you know that the actor behind the role has more depth and range than the script allows. In fact, it seems to be concerned mainly with stomping from one plot point to the next, which gets tedious. The dissonance between the characters and the plot points are painfully evident during the awkward conversations they have with each other; particularly between Brock and his ex-girlfriend Anne, featuring Michelle Williams in a baffling casting choice. Why hire a decorated actress if you don’t know how to maximise her skills? The same can be asked of Riz Ahmed who trudges along in villain mode as just another bad guy who wants to change the world because ‘reasons’.
What the screenplay lacks in character development, it makes up for in at least a couple of the action scenes which are well staged and executed, save for the anti-climax when it all converges into a massive CGI blob, quite literally. All hope isn’t lost though. A mid-credits scene does enough to build excitement for the subsequent sequel, which hopefully will feature Venom being integrating into the Spider-verse. If nothing, Tom Hardy proves that he’s more than equipped to play the sentient symbiote, but in the hands of a more adept director implementing a tauter story.
Venom movie review: Tom Hardy is the antidote poisonously dull Marvel rip-off
Venom movie review: Tom Hardy delivers a bravura one-man show in this poisonously drab Spider-Man spin-off which pales in comparison to its Marvel counterparts. Rating: 2.5/5.
Director – Ruben Fleischer
Cast – Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed
Rating – 2.5/5
They say superhero movies have a disregard for the laws of physics, but Venom has a disregard for the laws of human behaviour. In any given scene, its characters are prone to making such shoddy decisions that they barely resemble real people at all. Would you, for example, willingly allow an alien symbiote that looks like a sentient booger to latch itself onto you?
You could expect Eddie Brock to make dumb decisions – especially since Tom Hardy is playing him like a man-child doofus – but not Michelle Williams’ responsible district attorney. However, a point could be made that the entire project was ill-conceived from the very beginning and Hardy and Williams’ objectively bad decision to star in the damn thing just got the ball rolling.
Venom tries too hard to be edgy, but ends up feeling rather flat – like a Marvel Cinematic Universe rip-off complete with the same villain tropes and intermittent humour. It’s a classic example of a film’s tone being drastically altered after poor test screenings – by now we’ve seen this happen way too often to not spot the tell-tale signs, the most obvious of which is Hardy’s unhinged performance.
He plays Brock like a VICE bro, out to take down evil corporations and expose government scams, like a mid-2000s version of Shane Smith, all tattoos and aw-shucks. When Brock is given the opportunity to interview billionaire Carlton Drake (a surprisingly mellow Riz Ahmed channelling an evil Elon Musk), accused of shady business, he blows the chance to actually make a difference by making yet another dumb decision and confronting him on camera. Brock ends up losing his job, his apartment, and for some reason, also his girlfriend.
The problems with this character are easily identified – and Venom has only one character, really; the rest just hover in the background, occasionally making a noise. He’s passivity is debilitating. Not once does he take the charge – stuff’s always happening to him. He’s the one who gets dumped, he’s the one who chooses not to interfere in a mugging, and he’s the one who gets infected by the symbiote and then basically assumes a submissive position in their co-dependent relationship.
Understandably, the film’s first half is heavy on the horror – an alien eats several human heads, after all – but if only the movie had the self-awareness to know that it’s simply wasting its time with all the bloodless gore. If only it knew that beneath all the ickiness, it is a comedy at heart. Perhaps that is why they hired Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer to direct the film in the first place, which suggests that at least initially there was a somewhat clear vision of where to take this thing.
Hardy is clearly in a different movie altogether, having brushed the characters’ inherent Jekyll and Hyde elements in favour of a one-man buddy comedy. Venom would instantly earn an extra star if it were to just add another 15 or so minutes of Hardy slouching around town, mumbling to himself. Unfortunately, as the charismatic star himself has admitted, around half-an-hour of footage of him doing exactly that was, in fact, removed from the final cut.
It would make all the difference, I promise. We wouldn’t have this faux gritty tone – because Hardy isn’t in sync with the rest of the picture – and visuals that appear to have been shot with inky black goo smeared across the cameras’ lens. It’s going to be difficult to find a 2D screening – certainly, the film has only been released in variations of 3D in New Delhi, at least – but watching it with the added dimension adds an extra layer of murkiness to what I’m sure was perfectly fine work by the phenomenal DP, Matty Libatique.
And yet, despite all its failings, if this is all the Venom we’re going to get, it’ll be very disappointing indeed. Now that they’ve got this routine origin story out of the way, and perhaps with enough time to hear what the fans would have to say about it, the stage is set for a braver follow-up, and perhaps even a Spider-Man cameo.
It’s baffling that even in this era of Logans and Deadpools, they didn’t have the courage to go all-out with a character that positively demands a film as bonkers as Hardy’s performance. But there you have it, in the end he’s the antidote to this poisonously mediocre film.
Venom Movie Review: Tom Hardy Saves Marvel Spin-off from Becoming DC Disaster
The script is piecemeal, jumping from scene to sequence without bothering to provide connective tissues (and issues) in between.
Cast: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed
Director: Reuben Fleischer
As far as superhero films go, Venom isn’t the poison pill that most recent DC films have been, but it’s still a universe away from Marvel (it should be noted here that Venom is actually a Marvel character, the rights of whom or which belong to Sony. Business amirite?).
I shan’t provide you with a synopsis of the film here, mostly because that would end up being more thought out than the actual film’s narrative but suffice to say Tom Hardy plays an investigative journalist who loses his job, fiancée (an ever-excellent Michelle Williams) and apartment after he gets fired for getting on the wrong side of a tech titan (his fiancée also loses her job as a result of his impetuousness, but this smidgeon a fact is brushed aside like a MeToo allegation). He then gets infected by an alien parasite (don’t ask) and becomes a superhuman/alien, shape-shifting entity with an unfortunate appetite for living things and the violence that usually accompanies such cravings.
The script is piecemeal, jumping from scene to sequence without bothering to provide connective tissue (and issues) between, with character motivations and intentions being squeezed into the last 45 minutes or so. The hour and a half preceding it is a rambling quasi-narrative of Eddie Brock the person and Venom, the Symbiote who so fantastically violates Said Brock’s personal space.
And that is fine, if the intention of a film is to establish a foundation for a franchise. That’s exactly what Deadpool did, and nobody complained (too much) about it, because Deadpool wasn’t trying to save the world or anything, he was just on a revenge rampage, and so the makers had plenty of space to flesh out his character.
Being another Marvel spin-off, Venom tried to follow the same character-driven approach and then ruined it with their antihero having to save the world from a bunch of human-eating aliens. Perhaps a spoiler alert should have been inserted before this sentence, but it’s mentioned like twice in the entire film in the second half of the second half, and in such a blasé fashion that it seems more like some out-of-towners are coming to the city to eat tacos, instead of man-eating aliens; who are, again, the main villains of the film, and who, once again, have no role in and pose no threat to anyone in the film.
Speaking of ineffective villains, Riz Ahmed is disgustingly wasted as Carlton drake, the primary antagonist of most of the film until the apology of a final act. Moving beyond Sony’s pathetic pandering to the concept of diversity by casting a clearly South Asian man as the clearly Anglo-Saxon Carlton Drake, the film tries to portray their baddie as an evil Elon Musk (the script having been written before recent news events) but ends up seeming like a particularly obtuse middle manager with a penchant for trying (and failing) to inspire subordinates and random listeners with his Tedx-type speeches.
Thank deity of choice then for Tom Hardy. His Eddie Brock/Venom and their pitch-perfect ‘best frenemy’ dynamic is the only reason this film doesn’t have a mere one-star rating. Hardy, who’s made something of a career out of breathing life and personality into faceless/masked characters is in his element here (he also does Venom’s gravelly voice). And since the actor has signed off on two more Venom films, we can only hope the (different) makers of those films give Hardy more face(less) time.
Is ‘Venom’ Really That Awful? Us Answers 10 Burning Questions About Fall’s Most Bizarre Movie
Tom Hardy plays a vicious Marvel comic book character. Bradley Cooper plays a washed-up country star singing the blues. A year ago, only one of these two lead performances seemed like a sure bet for box office and critical success. Then came the twist: While A Star is Born is on the edge of glory, Venom appears snake-bitten with awful reviews. Is the bad buzz justified? Us has the answers.
1. Let’s get to it: Is Venom fun-bad or bad-bad?
Mostly bad-bad, with a splash and dash of fun. Nearly four years after Deadpool, comic-book flicks are still trying to recapture that hit’s naughty sense of humor and style. Consider this a watered-down PG-13 wannabe. The title character is an alien species that bites off heads and munches on brains. It lands on Earth with intent to destroy. But it needs a human host to survive. Enter Hardy’s good-guy TV reporter Eddie Brock. He’s just lost his job, his girl, his apartment, his life. He doesn’t deserve an alien takeover. This concept may seem vicious — remember the movie Alien? — but the symbiotic relationship is oddly and mostly played for crude laughs. Venom also talks to Hardy in a deep voice that sounds like an evil caricature from a 1980s TV cartoon series.
2. I’m already confused. Is this story as convoluted as you make it sound?
If anything, the plot could use a fast forward button. Venom doesn’t even show his ugly, sharp-toothed face until nearly an hour into movie. Instead, we get 45 minutes of Brock’s pathetic daily life, including a tussle with a loud neighbor and fights with his girlfriend (Michelle Williams). We don’t need to know every mundane detail of a hero’s origin story — and this guy isn’t even a hero. Get to the good stuff already!
3. So Venom is the villain?
Nope. That would be Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), playing a billionaire entrepreneur scientist who may have figured out the cure to pancreatic cancer but also loves to mesh aliens with humans in his spare time. Ahmed, the Emmy winner for the incredible HBO miniseries The Night Of and the actor who played Hannah’s baby-baddy in Girls, adds little to the thankless role and is as intimidating as a Hershey’s Kiss.
4. But the action and special effects must be kind of cool, right?
Green screen city, baby! The alien gunk that invades human bodies was obviously made on a computer screen. The action, directed by Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad), is repetitive and set mostly in pitch-black downtown San Francisco. Though a chase scene on motorcycles does the job.
5. I don’t care about any of this. Do I see it for Tom Hardy or no?
The enigmatic Oscar nominee is notorious for the intensity that he brings to his diverse roles. Think The Dark Knight Rises, The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road, even Dunkirk. He does give it his all in Venom — and his commitment is the biggest selling point. He’s not at all credible as a successful investigative TV reporter but is as a mumbling loser. I don’t want to know what kind of accent Hardy is attempting here, and I don’t care.
6. Aren’t Marvel movies supposed to be amazing? Hello, Black Panther and Avengers!
Ahem, Venom is an entry in the Marvel Universe — not the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There is a difference. The opening credits make it clear that this was made only “in association” with Marvel. There is a difference. That said, guess who makes the requisite cameo?
7. Yeah, you skipped past the most head-scratching part. Michelle Williams is in this cast?!
Already repressed it. The talented actress slums it by playing Hardy’s beleaguered, heels-wearing girlfriend. She looks utterly lost and has little to do aside from yelling at her man. This is a paycheck part, end of story.
8. Can I at least bring the kids? Babysitting ain’t cheap.
I guess? Though Venom is a carnivore to the highest degree, there will not be blood. He’s also not as terrorizing as the way that Topher Grace memorably played him back in 2007’s Spider-Man 3. But he does have a potty mouth — I heard a few curse words and he does call Hardy a “p—y.” (This got a big laugh from the audience in my screening.) Some of the pop culture references will be completely lost on the youth: Two jokes name-drop two different films released in 1982.
9. Is this better or worse than that bombastic Fantastic Four remake from a few years ago?
Slightly better. It certainly seemed shorter! Yay for that.
10. Will there be a sequel?
The set-up is in place, sigh. Any ideas on how we can get Lady Gaga to contribute a few ballads to it?
Venom is now playing in theaters
Tom Hardy Gets His Teeth Into ‘Venom,’ Though The Film Lacks Bite
With great power comes great irresponsibility. It’s been 29 summers since Prince’s “Batdance” heralded the release of Tim Burton’s Batman, and longer than that since a comic book screen spin-off featured an original song with lyrics explicitly describing the title character. Even Joss Whedon, a musical-theater guy who made two Avengers movies, and re-wrote and re-shot a hefty chunk of last year’s Justice League, failed to supply this very basic, spins-a-web, any-size, catches-thieves-just-like-flies need in his three at-bats.
So thank goodness for Venom, Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer’s limp-but-not-enervatingly-awful horror comedy built around a Spider-Man villain last seen in Sam Raimi’s now memory-holed Spider-Man 3. Peter Parker — who in the comics of the mid-’80s, many reboots ago, was the ravenous alien symbiote’s first human host — doesn’t rate so much as a name-check this time, though Venom — the CGI creature, not the movie — still looks like a mylar Spider-Man balloon with filthy razor teeth and Gene Simmons’ tongue. Frankly, Venom’s disinterest in saying whyso, or in exposition generally, is a selling point at this late-stage moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Q: Say, is this Sony Pictures In Association With Marvel release part of the MCU? A: Shut up!
Anyway, a mere 99 minutes after the movie starts (though star Tom Hardy has claimed his favorite 40 were excised), we’re treated over the closing credits to Eminem’s ruminations on this beloved Marvel character:
(I got that) adrenaline in ’em (Venom)
Not knowing with ’em
Never gonna slow up in ’em
Ready to step in momentum
Thinking it’s time to go get ’em
They ain’t gonna know what hit ’em
(When they get bitten with the)
The movie is just prologue to that, pretty much. Hardy plays Eddie Brock, host of The Brock Report, an apparently big-media-backed TV magazine covering local San Francisco news. His muckraking is of the Michael Moore school —basically, he just accuses rich slimeballs of high crimes to their faces on camera. That Eddie’s boss has a huge office in the Transamerica Pyramid, but Eddie appears to wallow in filth like some alt-weekly refugee, is one of the film’s lesser mysteries. Eddie’s fiancee, Anne (Michelle Williams, working at maybe 15 percent capacity), is an attorney who happens to represent Musk-like tech-bro Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), whom Eddie is investigating for …
… performing drug trials on homeless people. In horror-movie code, Eddie’s body-snatching by the intelligent tar-colored space-goo that Drake is keeping in his secret lab could be read as karmic payback for hacking Williams’ email to aid his investigation — an underhanded move that gets both Eddie and Anne fired.
Perhaps the 25 percent of the movie that Hardly claims was amputated dealt with Eddie’s spiral into debt and despondency after Annie dumps him, because in the movie as released she’s in a relationship, with nice-guy surgeon Reid Scott what appears to be the very next day. Anyway, Eddie’s struggles to find a new gig while oily tentacles are shooting out of his body in response to even minor discomforts are the most diverting section part of the film, if only because Hardy is fully committed in a way no other actor here is. Had this thing been greenlit at the 1990s apex of Venom’s popularity as a comic book character, it almost certainly would’ve starred Jim Carrey. So we all dodged a bullet there.
Anyway: Venom starts talking to Eddie. In an Auto-tuned Cookie Monster voice audible only to him. We always thought that any alien intelligence shrewd enough to try to take our world would be vast, cool, and unsympathetic, but it turns out Venom isn’t much different than the alien who starred in NBC’s 1980s sitcom ALF: A pushy boor motivated mostly by his next snack. “Let’s eat his head!” is a thing that Venom says more than once in Venom. He (?) is also surprisingly sensitive — he bristles at being called a parasite — and pragmatic. “Think of yourself as my ride,” he tells Eddie, floating briefly outside of Eddie’s body so they can talk eye-to- um, eye, heart-to, er, heart, man to extraterrestrial-of-indeterminate-gender. We all know this is heading towards a boring nocturnal CGI smackdown followed by a tee-up for a sequel, but Venom is at its deeply mediocre best in the scenes where the stakes are lowest.
What else? Jenny Slate, playing a scientist who has a fit of conscience over Drake’s abuse of San Franciso’s homeless population, contacts Eddie, give him a business card identifying her specialty as Microbial Astral Ecology. Whatever that means, I can tell you this: Eminem said it better.
