Venom: Let There Be Carnage movie review - Aussieboyreviews


Let There Be Carnage is the action-packed and humorous sequel to 2018’s Venom. It’s not as great, but fans will enjoy returning to the story. Expect violence and language.


Eddie Brock, a failed journalist, tries to revive his career by interviewing a deranged serial killer on death row, Cletus Kasady. But when Kasady becomes the host of the symbiote Carnage and escapes prison, Brock and Venom must cooperate to stop his reign of terror.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Returners will enjoy the battle sequences between Venom and Carnage and the unexpected humour, but Let There Be Carnage displays too much of a relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom. To be straightforward, this sci-fi action sequel doesn’t deserve the hate it’s receiving. Fans who loved the 2018 predecessor’s action and character focus will likely be pleased in what this one has to offer.

First of all, the film grabs our attention at the start and lets us know a little information about the antagonists. The pacing is charming, but not so pleasing when the next 30 minutes portray what’s happening at the moment with Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and alien-like companion, Venom.

Surprisingly, there’s a frequent sense of comedic fashion throughout the new events. Seriously, there’s small but fruitful touches with jokes that’ll actually give you a solid laugh. Unsurprisingly, Let There Be Carnage brings us back to the enjoyable science fiction-themed action sequences involving Eddie Brock and Venom vs. the antagonist, Cletus Kasady. It’s really witty to witness Woody Harrelson as Kasady.
