Andy Serkis must have had some form of romance with chaos to create something of this sort. In an economical way, it can be described as a glorified snuff with a superhero in it. While many might love the idea, it seems the general reaction to this hasn’t exactly been on the positive side.
On a lighter note, Andy Serkis still isn’t out of his Gollum phase, it is because of the violence it’s because of the inability to make any more good additions to it. But we won’t take sides here, we would definitely be analytical. Because there must be a narrative and the narrative must not be compromised, but then CGI makes everything seem very easy so why not take a shot.
The film stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a former journalist turned host to an alien parasitic symbiote that calls himself Venom. The sequel to the surprise hit of 2018 will explore Eddie and Venom’s growing symbiotic relationship, as well as Eddie’s quest to get his career back on track as they face a new threat in the form of serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), also known as the titular Carnage. He was seen at the end credits of the last film but this time without his wings.
Now the real deal is it becomes incredibly difficult to follow because of this weird insanity and the violent Romcom mix which is hard to keep track of. Tom Hardy does his best but yeah guess what Gollum is doing (Andy Serkis is definitely enjoying the multitude of CGI he can get his hands on).
Now, with Sony’s next wave of superhero films on the horizon, let’s see what the critics think: Does Harrelson’s new wig surpass the insanity of the original? Do Venom and Eddie make out again? Does Hardy deliver another scene as bonkers as the lobster one from the first film? More importantly, is there enough carnage in the film?
