Venom: Let There be Carnage

‘Venom: Let There be Carnage’ is the sequel to the 2018 Marvel superhero movie ‘Venom’. This one brings back Tom Hardy (Lawless), and Michelle Williams (Dawson’s Creek). While adding Woody Harrelson (Zombieland), Naomie Harris (28 Days Later…), and Stephen Graham (This is England).

Cletus Kasady (Harrleson) is a notorious serial killer who wants to give Eddie Brock an exclusive interview before he is put to death. Eddie and Venom accidentally infect Cletus with a symbiote named Carnage. Now Eddie and Venom must stop Carnage, all while they are feuding amongst themselves.

There’s not many sequels to originals that I like better, but this is one. The first one I thought was a little bit of a let down for a movie about Venom. This one is the bigger, badder movie that we deserve. This one focuses more on venom himself, he even separates himself from Eddie for part of the film and we get just Venom. This one also ups more action and bigger final fight scene. In the first movie, the “boss” fight is a little underwhelming and is maybe a couple minutes long. This one is a solid ten minutes long of two symbiote’s battling it out, pretty awesome. It still brings the funniness of Venom, while adding Harrelson’s comedy. I highly recommend this one. I give it a 10/10.

Venom (2018)

‘Venom’ is a 2018 Marvel superhero movie starring Tom Hardy (Lawless), Michelle Williams (Dawson’s Creek), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler), and Jenny Slate (Bob’s Burgers). A disgraced reporter (Hardy) is taken over by an alien parasite known as Venom. Venom decides he likes earth and now him and the reporter must stop an alien invasion before earth is doomed.

So the Venom movie ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ is out in theaters, so I had to go back and watch this one before seeing the new one this weekend. The cool thing about the Venom movie is, he is the first villain to have their own solo movie in the MCU. Venom is arguably the biggest bad ass out of all the villain’s in Marvel, whose ever body he takes over not only do they posses Venom’s powers, but also still posses their own. So you can have a venomized Spiderman, Dr. Strange, etc. So Venom is a pretty cool character.

Tom Hardy is a great actor, and does a good job playing the guy teamed up with Venom. Like all Marvel movies this one does a great job of having a good mix of comedy and action. I was hoping for a little more though, it wasn’t quite as badass as I was expecting being the first solo villain movie. It’s still worth the watch. I give it a 7/10.
