Investigative journalist Eddie Brock attempts a comeback following a scandal, but accidentally becomes the host of an alien symbiote that gives him a violent super alter-ego: Venom. Soon, he must rely on his newfound powers to protect the world from a shadowy organisation looking for a symbiote of their own.
Critics Reviews for Venom
- “The film contains a vast wealth of laughs that emanate from a kind of action-comedy slapstick I sincerely didn't know Tom Hardy had in him.” – Abraham Riesman, New York Magazine/Vulture
- “This radically different approach will surely be jarring to some, but the fact that this movie could never exist in the same world as "Captain America: Civil War” despite hailing from the same brand of comics is part of its charm." – Michael Nordine, indieWire
