Sure was a movie. Doesn't achieve too much in either the thoughtful nor the fun departments, in fact the overall themes of being a victim are overplayed yet still not done thoughtfully, but it is indeed a long awaited movie starring this iconic character
The DCEU's Venom, with a bit better writing and a touch more feminism. Though this film is structurally flawed to a significant degree, each individual minute of it is thoroughly enjoyable. Very much more style than substance, but the fun character writing holds the movie through.
