Aussie boy's thoughts

Watching the symbiotic bond between the unsettled Eddie Brock and the savage Venom seriously creates a highly pleasurable 110 minutes of solid action, rapid movement and unique science-fictional entertainment. Venom is a science-fiction/action movie that even audiences who don’t really have a taste in scientific action stuff might decently enjoy.

This movie is perfect when it comes to character development and setting up a wildly fun story. There’s the brilliant special effects in action context and sci-fi context that all of these genre’d movies should require, but it’s very simply and very interesting at the same time. And apart from the loud action, extreme power and explosions, the symbiotic relationship is the witty touch.

Literally almost every detail throughout this story is absorbing. It gets to the point where the movie’s already had success in catching viewers and keeping them entertained. It hit an appealing target, but missed an opportunity to be scarier, in which the scientific threat and action is actually more than intense.
