It's all about that connection between Eddie and Venom, which is very funny and it works
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

What sets (it) apart and keeps it on the rails is Hardy's commitment to the relatable streetwise reporter wielding a weapon that thinks for itself, that and keeping the story simple enough to enjoy it for what it is.

So much of it is amusingly off-kilter that the joy of watching it is equivalent to the pleasure of eating junk food. It's utter garbage; you won't think about it once it's gone, but it'll hit a lot of instant pleasure centers.
October 7, 2018
Manages to be both rushed and laboured, rattling through an agonising amount of setups before deciding on its split-personality buddy-comedy tone.

October 7, 2018
A chaotic, unfocused, assembly edit of a movie, that appears to have had all the vitality and humanity parasitically sucked out of it.

Venom is terrible and the worst film of Tom Hardy's varied career.

October 6, 2018
The movie doesn't really capitalize on the inherent novelty of a villain in the title role. It's where you can feel the conflict in the movie itself. Like Eddie, our hero-villain, the film resists a new shape, a new manifestation of a changing inner core.

All hail Tom Hardy. No more men in masks flying around in a motorized suit. And Hardy's Taboo is set for another season.

[A] weak B-movie with A-list talent working gamely to try to elevate the material... [but] in the end it's too much of a mixed bag of tone and erratic plotting to escape its own limitations.
October 5, 2018
It moves quickly and is fairly good-natured, but otherwise this flatly written, uninspired comic-book action movie feels more like a paycheck-driven business decision than an artistic inspiration.

Tonally uneven, mostly bumbling, and occasionally funny, sometimes on purpose. Is it good? No. Is it boring? Also no.

Sloppy mess with a lot of editing problems...wasted performances for sure.

If you're a hardcore Venom fan, you'll be more let down than if you go to this movie wanting an entertaining action ride.

It's actually one of those movies you can watch over and over again...I left feeling like Guardians of the Galaxy, I was smiling and laughing throughout the whole movie.

There was just a disconnect that didn't work for me...
October 5, 2018
Tom Hardy did a really good job of being Eddie Brock and Venom...I also liked what Riz Ahmed brought to the villain.
October 5, 2018
It's not clear what precisely we've done to deserve this iteration of Venom and the hilariously goofy movie in which he stars, but it's a mixed blessing worth embracing.

October 5, 2018
The result offers a strong performance by Tom Hardy, anchoring a storyline which, for Marvel, is slightly too wild and out-of-control, although that's probably fitting, because it's really what the scary/funny/icky Venom is all about.
October 5, 2018
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...

"Venom" is a hot train wreck ... and by hot I mean Tom Hardy in the lead role. You just cannot look away even though the movie is a disaster ...
