Marvel Studios releases one of their final movies of the year, Venom, which contains science fiction, exciting action scenes, and a bit of humor to go along with it.
Venom, created in 1984 by Marvel Comics, is a sentient alien Symbiote with an amorphous, liquid-like form, who requires a host–usually human–to bond with for its survival. The character is most commonly grouped together with popular Marvel superhero Spider-Man. However, this movie features Venom as the main character, telling the story behind it all.
Venom, released last Friday, was directed by Ruben Fleischer. Fleischer has directed many other movies such as Zombieland and Gangster Squad. Venom stars Tom Hardy as Venom and Eddie Brock. He is accompanied by other experienced actors like Michelle Williams as Anne Weying and Riz Ahmed as Carlton Drake respectively. The chemistry between these actors shows how this film is exceptionally casted.
The film follows a journalist, Eddie Brock, as he comes in contact with an alien named Venom, becomes the host for Venom, and gains amazing abilities.
Venom gives a lot of its viewers the chance to connect with the main character. Since Eddie Brock is just a normal guy who is given these powers, his reactions towards the powers are similar to how many others would react. It also gives the watchers a chance to differentiate in some of the choices they would make that Brock does not.
Although the film is heavy on action, Venom contains a lot of comedy, some drama, and some romance. This movie has a little bit of everything, which is what keeps the viewers so entertained.
The content of the movie is not the only good part of this film. The graphics and CGI were great! The filmmakers were able to make Venom look like he could really exist in the world. Some of the action scenes are a bit far-fetched, but those flashy scenes are what Marvel Studios is well known for.
Overall, this was a great film that will bring several reactions from fans. There were high expectations for this movie, and Venom certainly rose to meet them.
