Before watching this movie I was a bit sceptical, because of mixed reviews, but in the end, you should never trust a critic 100%. Go see the movie for yourself.
I was pleasantly suprised. I think Venom is a pretty funny movie, because of the dynamic between Eddie and Venom, which is the best part of this movie for me. The CGI is pretty good. Although the movie did have some darkness/seriousness about it, I feel like it could have been darker. By that I mean the violence could have been more graphic, there is little to no blood in this movie. The villain is not all that impressive.
Tom Hardy is a great actor, his Eddie Brock is a very likeable character.
All things considered, it´s a fun movie, good CGI, but not graphic enough.
