Venom is a perfectly average superhero movie

When Sony announced that they would be making a Venom movie I was genuinely excited because Venom is my favorite Spiderman villain. However, I remembered that Sony never had the best history with Spiderman in recent years but even with that in mind, I was hopeful that it would be a good movie.

Although Venom did do poorly with Rotten Tomatoes, I completely disagree with them because I still had a really good time watching it.

I think the best part about this movie is the relationship between Eddy and Venom. It feels like you are watching a buddy cop movie when the movie focuses on them. another compliment to Tom Hardy’s acting is that he does a wonderful job of portraying a guy who caught in the plot of the movie.

Tom Hardy gave an exceptional performance and the visual-effects were eye-popping,” sophomore Johnny Rodriguez said.

The supporting cast, while not being that important, they did a good job of not being annoying and when they were on screen. I was not hoping that their screen time would end soon.  

One complaint I have about the movie is that the villain is pretty bland compared to Eddy.in the scenes that he is in, he drags the plot and makes the movie seem more one-dimensional than it really is.

With a character like Venom,  who is always covered in a black ink-like substance, translating that into a movie requires a lot of visual effects and I can thankfully say that the visual effects were really good with Venom looking very lifelike and fluid. Even though this movie was no Avengers Infinity war or Black Panther, I think the main reason it got very mixed reviews was that Venom is good for different reasons. While Avengers and Black Panther offered a good story, Venom is more enjoyable because it offers dumb fun with some exciting action with engaging main characters.
