It's such a bizarre mixture of tones that Venom feels like the perfect successor to The Amazing Spider-Man films, almost to the point where you begin to wonder whether or not this was originally intended to be a spinoff to those films.
An entertainingly skittish performance by Tom Hardy keeps things lively, but Venom falls short of the bar raised by other Marvel fare, thanks to mediocre filmmaking and a refusal to push the boundaries.
