Venom: Let There Be Carnage Review



Good Morning Lovelies, 

In a world where carnage has reached fever pitch, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, was a feature that slipped past many of us. Sadly, this may not have been a bad thing, as many of us are just finding out due to its release on DVD, Blu- Ray and digitally. 

With Tom Hardy back playing the evil figure,  Eddie Brock, his character is using his venomous ways to try and deal with the breakup he is going through. And it is safe to say that Anne leaving him has made a huge impact on the film. One which even though it is part of the Spider-Man franchise, lacks the main man himself. 

Hardy is a man who commands any film in which he is in. Yet, even his talents can’t save this one. Whilst the feature thrives in trying to get to grips with the story, it never connects with what the comics do so well. Making a villain out of him in the way cult fans would want. 

The script lacks any real depth. Something that Hardy tries to achieve, but due to him being let down by the story, he just can’t do. There is to much comedy, or trying to be funny, which just doesn’t click at all with viewers. Again, probably because it doesn’t fit with the dark nature of the character. 

As a whole idea, the film does strive to work and could potentially do so, if it had a stronger script, story and ability to thrive more in the Spider-Man franchise. Maybe it is this that lets viewers down. With so many great moments in the Marvel/Disney creations, there is a never ending comparison between this and that. Something that highlights the downside of this one. 

Overall, Hardy tries his hardest to get the film to full levels of carnage. However, it fails to click with its complete story and makes for a feature that just lacks the main heart of the villain. More venom needs to be pumped into this one to get it off the ground.
