The most relatable character in the film, for everyone, is Venom and Venom only, because he is ALWAYS hungry. The alien symbiote that is brought from an asteroid to earth, first plans to destroy it but falls in love with Anne (Michelle Williams, obviously) and decides to play the hero!
This Tom Hardy starrer is all fun and entertaining but seriously lacks a great storyline. Its loopholes leave you with many unanswered questions, that if it was to be shown in the film, would’ve been a kick-ass movie. Other than that, it really is close to a Marvel film, maybe much like Deadpool too, with its freestyle of a character, Villain-to-Hero.
Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a journalist who takes down “bad people” by exposing them. But when he turns to the opposite side of Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) founder of the Life Foundation and our villain, things go bad for him. He loses his job and his fiancé too, his fiancé loses her job too (Eddie’s fault).
And meanwhile all of this, Carlton send his “scientists” in space to find another planet habitual for the humans as we’re killing off the earth. The scientists find these symbiotes, aliens, Venom and Riot, and are brought back to earth. Things go wrong and Riot escapes the rockets and latches itself to a person and travels all the way from Malaysia to San Francisco, to meet Carlton, who wishes same like Riot to bring more of these symbiotes to earth.
The plan is excellent, things are going fine until Eddie finds himself trying to expose Carlton’s deadly experiments, that is when Venom latches itself to Eddie and our story jump starts there. With Venom bonded, Brock can perform dangerously, adrenaline-spiked feats like intricately weaving through San Francisco traffic on a speeding motorcycle and soaring up the side of buildings — and, perhaps, fighting injustice more effectively than he ever could as an investigative journalist (you’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it).
Tom Hardy is simply amazing and perhaps the sole person who uplifted this whole venture. Michelle Williams is good in her role, whereas Riz Ahmed has proved, with this villainous role, that he’d be great if he were to give a TedTalk.
The Zombieland director, Ruben Fleischer, has done a pretty decent job with Venom. It could’ve been great if the loopholes weren’t there. For example, the 6 months gap, we have no idea what Riot does in between this month. Is he only travelling? What more a symbiote like Riot (He’s extremely deadly) can do?
Overall, you shouldn’t miss this one. It is highly entertaining, Tom Hardy’s great, especially when he becomes Hero-Villain with VENOM.
We give Venom 3 Stars with a “venomous” kink.
