I would like to watch more of Eddie and Venom bantering about their common character defects and possibly eating people.

Above all, it's a poorly conceived script which hurts the film in the end.
October 29, 2019
Tom Hardy gives it his all, but Venom falls short in almost every way. It has bad acting, bad pacing and editing, and a silly yet still somehow dull plot. It's another swing and a miss from Sony.
October 18, 2019
The final product looks like the result of a lot of last-minute reworking.
August 29, 2019
Venom can't be saved by Tom Hardy's unique performance and there's so much here that doesn't work, it makes for frustrating viewing and is a complete and utter disappointment.
August 29, 2019
The movie grinds through its first half, and takes far too long to get Venom and Eddie together. But once the monster and man do become one, the plot picks up dramatically.
August 21, 2019
This is one hot mess that will enrage Marvel fans and confuse newbies.
August 8, 2019
The funny, often random bits of dialogue echo a classic vaudeville duo and allow Hardy to display an exciting, awkward comedic side rarely seen from the often serious actor.
July 29, 2019
The result is so infantile that you barely care to wait for the mandatory mid-credit Marvel teasers.

But outside of the odd thrills to be found in his actual portrayal of Venom, the movie is basically trash, a project destined for a home alongside Catwoman and Elektra in every Bad Superhero Movie listicle to be published until the end of time.
July 12, 2019
It is a forgettable film that doesn't properly entertain and feels completely unnecessary. For those looking for a good movie about a charming but flawed bearded white dude working with a presence in his head to take out scores of bad guys, see UPGRADE.

Venom as a CGI creature is brilliant to watch, especially when he makes those formidable shields and weapons... But these bits and pieces are not enough to keep one interested through the length of the movie.
July 10, 2019
It has so many weaknesses that I would never recommend it to anyone. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 18, 2019
Venom is a narrative nightmare in which every scene feels rushed. And yet, by the power of slimy black tentacles, possessed dogs and children, and Hardy's fearless lunacy, it is a wickedly watchable experience.
June 3, 2019
a surprisingly generic, listless film, filled with poorly rendered CGI effects and painfully tin-eared dialogue.
May 21, 2019
In theory it is almost aggressively ridiculous, and yet if you're willing to suspend your disbelief, there is a slightly childlike sincerity to it that becomes irresistible.
May 15, 2019
Venom feels like very much feels like a relic of the past that hasn't bothered to adapt to the superhero genre's changing times.
May 7, 2019
From the comic book nods, to the amazing battles, and on point CGI - comic fans will love Venom. A few plot holes & some humor is a miss, but overall a super fun movie!
May 1, 2019
Immensely flawed, packed full of cheese and occasionally hokey effects, and far removed from any of the grandeur achieved within the Marvel Universe
April 28, 2019
Venom is, at its worst, incredibly messy, though at its best it's fun, slightly horrific, and an accidental slice of superhero socialism.
