IS ON MAH SIDE...
YEHS EET IHZZZ...
GOD, I love this movie.
I'm not normally one for live action(ish) adaptations of anime, but this one is definitely an exception.
Hardy's performance as Brock left much to be desired, Venom's character was far less brutal than his original incarnations, and their lore and origins have been thoroughly gutted and repurposed. For goodness' sake, they cannot even pronounce "Sihm-Bee-Oht" correctly.
However, it was a fun, action-packed romp that was worth the sit down (the lack of blood and gore notwithstanding), and the dialogue between Venom and Brock made for an unexpectedly good buddy-movie element that gave me a few good laughs. Recommended if you don't mind mediocre comic book films, and are just looking for a bit of cheap fun.
This dumpster fire is one of those terrible jokes that you laugh at for being so exceptional in poor taste, only to find out that it is not a joke.
The sole good point that I'll concede to this film is the casting of Dafoe as Ryuk's voice, everything else seems to be a deliberate attempt to pervert the entirety of Death Note.
It is a competition to be the film's dumbest character, and everyone just keeps one-upping each other. While the original Death Note was not my cup of tea, its merits as a cat-and-mouse style drama was apparent. This pathetic attempt at a rehash caused me physical pain to watch.
Top hell with you, Netflix. You need to stop funding crap like this.
