One-line Reviews (448)

It's funny, light-hearted despite the subject matter, full of action, and really entertaining to watch.

Honestly a really enjoyable film.

This movie is very fun, and entertaining.

And overall, the dialogue was entertaining as well, and often comical.

The 1st act dragged.

Even of it can be formulaic, I still had a good time!

He lives life on the edge.

Its childish and predictable when it comes to- the usual two sentence plot and very little character development.

Cheap Thriller with no storyline .

Hardy gives a frantic extremely physically crazy funny performance here as Eddie Brock a pushy journalist who ends up getting infected with an evil alien creature called venom & it becomes apart of him & it's hilarious & action packed & Hardy plays both parts doing the venom voice & the panicky almost geeky Eddie.

While the cinematography and art direction were nothing horrifying, they were entirely average and bland.

often tedious, though at moments it barely scrapes watchable .

The final fight is eight minutes of extreme CGI featuring a battle two very similar looking creatures, so you're left watching rapid close ups and quick cutaways of a battle that is very hard to follow on the big screen.

This was much kore enjoyable than I expected considering the lack of publicity.

I went into this movie with low expectations and enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Tom is such a good actor with lots of confidence and character, then you have Michelle with this dull, drab personality, she just doesn't fit into this movie.

Enjoyed it .

Eddie and Venom have this very unique relationship and at times it can be funny and absurd, it's what makes it somewhat enjoyable.

And you realize you, did but it was a complete waste of time.

Added to my top 10 worst movies .

Movie is really entertaining.

You could pretty much set your watch to the inciting incident and all those other formulaic screenplay structures that have reduced commercial filmmaking to telling lifeless repetitive stories.

The first half starts off a slow and somewhat boring, but it more than makes up for it in the second half, totally action packed!

The story was bland.

Plot of the movie is like any average cliche action film story .

A welcome back to fast paced movies, where every act is as defined as it gets without much of a suspense over anything, except for an oddly funny venom.

In terms of enjoyment, this film is fantastically entertaining, though I really doubt I enjoyed it the way the filmmakers intended.

The story was barely entertaining and was met with so many flaws.

It was pretty predictable with a by the numbers plot.

The pretentious voice is highly unnecessary.

This movie is entertaining , pile of bodies pile of heads.

It's a shame that the rest of the film cannont live up to this however, the paper thin plot moves at a snail's pace, any attempt at horror is lost in the edit and the massive CGI mess of a finale is extermly difficult to follow and extemly dull to watch.

Awesome entertaining film .

That lobster scenen is really really weird and very entertaining.

Cliché of clichés .

My biggest complaint is the movie is very boring for the first half hour.

But what could have been a fantastically dark exploration into a villain, was a hugely flat and boring plotline and action.

I really enjoyed it.

Adding Riot only forces filmmakers apply mish-mash of very-fast paced hard to understand full of CGI boss battle which was quite stale.

I am a HUGE fan of the comics and was very critical coming into viewing this, but I'm happy to say that this movie is very entertaining.

This film is so boring bland and uninventive.

It had an original story line, solid acting and exciting action scenes.

As is the use of CGI, which may have been supposed to look more than a little cartoony than vividly realistic, but can get a little hard viewing and confusing especially as many of them are set at night.

It's nothing that would keep you at the edge of your seat, but it is definitely enjoyable.

There's enough stuff going on in this entertaining good-versus-evil movie to be worth developing into a very nice little mini-series, maybe six episodes.

After a pretty slow bulid up this scene really beagn to peak my intrest and get me ingaged in the film, despite obvious cuts around the more violent moments this was a real highlight.

In fact, that's what the entire film is- a ridiculous set-up that is beyond predictable, yet incredibly fun and consistently entertaining from beginning to end.

Despite all of this, Ruben Fleischer's bland fossil of a film raked in over $800 million worldwide, so I'm afraid a sequel is inevitable.

Worst movie by far .

But as a Marvel fan who thinks Marvel movies are becoming repetitive, it was nice to watch something different other than the regular super hero movie.

In conclusion I give it a 7, because I still enjoyed it despite what I mentioned before.

Dragged on forever unfortunately.

Boring and predictable.

This was an enjoyable movie that had good humorbut wasn't excessively violent as the Venom character typically is.

But the film is still fun it just has many problems and also has a very confusing timeline.

Halfway through something happened, it felt like a tonal shift and everything became enjoyable.

The movie is very enjoyable and I can't wait to watch something even better in venom 2..

Completely stupid pointless movie.

quite enjoyable actually.

The dialogue is corny and the fight scenes are a series of blurry images and quick cuts, which makes the action quickly become tedious.

The end result (despite what the critics will have you believe) is something that is immensely watchable and thoroughly enjoyable.

I Fell Asleep...

Special effects were stunning and I found some scenes very original and so different than the usual superhero movie.

But the more it goes on, the compelling ideas Venom sets up are abandoned.

I just can belive that a t of people like this movie,the movie is so BORING, and predictible, i mean everything is so forced,the Eddie´s boss send Eddie to survey to a evil businessman,What did the boss expect, that Eddie would behave?

Disappointing and yet entertaining- you rarely see such movies these days.

I've heard plenty of people say that it's "the worst movie of 2018!

Overall this is a must watch for any Marvel fan and I highly recommend it to anyone ages 15 and upwards.

Everything about this movie is painfully mediocre except for a few brief moments of high-priced CGI, and even that ends up being mostly underwhelming because the scenes containing it range from bland to awful.

As usual with marvels, totally predictable and maybe is for 12-16 year olds.

More anti entertaining than anti hero

This movie was unwatchable.

Anyway, the first half of the movie is pretty much like my first paragraph in this review, boring, repetitive and ultimately useless to the story.

However, I actually enjoyed it a little.

I just watched the movie and i thought it was funny and really entertaining to watch!

Before the start of the movie my expectation from venom was to be an action packed R-rated comprising lots of of blood and heinous murder scenes with a very depressing story line.

I began forgiving the movie for failing to pull me in earlier, cause now I was completely immersed in this large scaled adventure.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Venom is a very entertaining film as well as providing an interesting origin story and a strong performance by Tom Hardy.

I thought the movie was decent with a good plot easy to follow and some good effects with plenty of action but with a slow start and didn't expect It to be full of humour.

Act one is incredibly boring.

You may remember the character from the franchise-killing Spider-Man 3 in 2007, and you also may believe you've gone back in time over 10 years when watching this spectacularly dull and frustratingly origin story, which harks back to the dark days of the Ben-Affleck-headlined Daredevil and Tim Story's Fantastic Four.

So entertaining.

Venom may have a fairly generic plot but either way it was enjoyable.

Massive well done to the visual and sound effects department for creating some great symbiote sounds and also to composer Ludwig Goransson (Black Panther) for a suspenseful score.

It's fast, it's fun; it's pure adrenaline rush.

Having now watched it for myself, I can say that I found many of the reviews I have read to be somewhat unfair, and its a much better and more entertaining movie than expected.

Very entertaining movie .

They completely change venom as a character from the comic books but I still enjoyed it a lot and can't wait for the sequel.

Empty.

We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Would have been better if R18+ IMO, but still enjoyable.

The first act is ham-fisted, charmless and dull.

The storyline was okay, quite predictable, but exciting none the less.

Heard this was the worst movie ever.

It sure was an enjoyable experience.

You get your money's worth watching it.

Stunning action scenes, the part with the S.

It's definitely worth the watch.

It's not like the effects are terrible, but the designs of Venom and particularly Riot just are a little bland and uninteresting.

Most of the characters are uninteresting, a lot of the movie is boring, there's really bad writing at points, and there's a lot of plot holes and inconsistencies, which some could have been easily fixed.

I can't honestly say I'd recommend this film, yet fans of enjoyable action movies that are pure entertainment and also surprisingly funny will have a ball.

But it ultimately showcases why things change with it's extremely fast narrative which still feels unable to cover the whole thing in one line, instead what we get was a mashup of same things pounded over each other with everything repeated and predictable.

It's a fascinating subplot although of course its a message lost on its kiddie audience who want big bang smash boobs.

Even as far as origin stories go, Venom grinds through at a snail's pace for the first half of the film.

Anyways my oinion definately enjoyed it would recomend it.

The fight and chase scenes were very entertaining and enjoyable to watch, Tom Hardy's acting was fantastic and I just overall loved the whole idea of venom.

When there is no story to back up the stunts , stunts become just individual scenes.

Transform scenes were very well made, car chase in San Francisco worth watching as always.

This movie was so basic I was bored to tears.

Too much hype on the trailers; seen nothing on the movie but a classic plot, too much CGI and lack of logic that makes the movie a waste of time.

Compared to the budget of this ultra-stinker, this is one of the worst movies that has even been made.

Stunts were amazing, fight scenes are breathtaking.

Everything else was so forgettable and bland that it's like I had a memory lapse when I try to think back on any resonating impression or feelings I'd had about it, or than that it was a big waste of time.

Struggling and slow .

Waste of time .

We get a crazy fun duo of Eddie and Venom who have this awesome dynamic, a massively entertaining movie, with plenty of PG-13 beheadings and a romance I am certainly rooting for.

It's boring, has a lame story, and the beginning was extremely slow!

Lacking the we-know-how-to-do this confidence of Disney's MCU, Ruben Fleischer's film never finds a strong footing, mixing drab stretches of plot, efficient but flat action, mishandled comedy, a few fun elements and squandering one of the most exciting casts of the year.

He's honestly very funny and this movie is all over entertaining.

Kind of Average, but Enjoyable .

but it was enjoyable.

At first, I was concerned about Hardy but he turns in a compelling performance.

Don't waste your time on this one.

)Visual effects are nice and very stunning when you see it on big screen TV So don't ever never looked at the movie score and watch it and have a great time when you see this awesome trillerYours ArMS

Entertaining .

But it was so predictable and cliche ridden it was almost painful to watch.

However, since after credits they have now revealed that sequel to Venom is confirmed so thing will be exciting.

Both Williams and Hardy are brilliant in their roles and the movie is both fun and exciting.

Great acting by Tom Hardy as usual, in a very entertaining movie.

Amazing fully packed with action and humor just entertaining and captivating to the end.

The first part of the film is fairly enjoyable.

Saw this movie in the theater opening weekend and was so pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

This movie has successfully brought together the intense action that I knew it will have, the drama around the life story of Eddie and Venom and the comedy elements that made it even more enjoyable!

The first 40 minutes are a compilation of the most boring cliches you've seen in Hollywood movies.

It was funny and gripping with amazing CGI and fighting scenes.

I found this to be a very fun, entertaining sci-fi action movie.

There is only 1 problem with this and i think this movie should have been longer to 2 hours and 15 minutes so there are more fight scenes among eddie and the other antagonist venom, overall i like this movie and it's entertaining and good didn't know why the critics rated this so low, also i like the scenes on where they try to chase eddie brock in their vehicles

A disaster but 70% enjoyable.

Random guy get super powers, a villain, a cliche love story..etc. This formula will always work, why because this is what we expect from a super-hero film.

Yes, I actually enjoyed it and in fact I think I Loved it.

The villains are just so boring.

The standard post credits Marvel scene is also very exciting with a terrific cameo!

Chemistry between Eddie Brock and Anne is not the best, but it comes around by the end to something enjoyable and relatable.

I think it was worth to watch it, but there were some boring parts.

Thoroughly entertaining.

I personally think that, though entertaining, Michelle Williams' character was a little bit too much like Gwen Stacy for me...

After a slightly slow start, the film kicked into high gear.

Prepare to have fun, confusing, mixed-emotions time.

Waste my time .

The car chasing scene is so shaky and the last battle with last villain on the bridge is so confusing.

full movie is entertaining.

Despite clichés well worth watching .

The plot holes are enormous and the movie is so slow.

Very Entertaining!.

Lacking the we-know-how-to-do this confidence of Disney's MCU, Ruben Fleischer's film never finds a strong footing, mixing drab stretches of plot, efficient but flat action, mishandled comedy, a few fun elements and squandering one of the most exciting casts of the year.

I was very surprised by the fact that the movie was actually enjoyable.

Really entertaining .

He's the only decent actor in this movie, and him actually becoming Venom took way too long!

There is a little bit of character development that they could have done better, but overall it was an enjoyable film.

To be honest, the begging of the movie was boring, like the first 20 minutes, but after that it got a bit intriguing.

However, without giving too much away, it definitely makes some necessary changes in the adaptation to keep things exciting on the big screen.

Characters so boring and superficial.

I actually enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

Perhaps I'm the wrong person to review this, I'm not really into Marvel / Superhero stuff because I feel like the movies are all a bit rushed and formulaic.

This is cliche, way too similar to the amazing spider-man (same director btw), in terms of giga bio-company being led by an evil CEO.

It falls victim to many of my Holywood movie pet hates, such as employing a well known British actor and forcing him or her to put on an American accent that takes a lot of getting used to, or such as making a movie pitched at a PG-13 audience, and squeezing in as much pointless and completely unnecessary profanity as possible.

Once the Venom symbiote enters the plot, the movie picks up steam and is enjoyable.

Exciting!!.

Major plot hole but super enjoyable .

However, and to be fair, it does have its funny moments but the first part of the movie is dull.

This was really enjoyable and Tom Hardy makes it so.

yawn.

It was entertaining, which is what you want for this kind of film.

Worth watching .

The plot was too fast paced and way less dark for an anti-hero film unlike Deadpool or Wolverine and some how dialogues, story development and ambience seemed familiar, like Amazing Spiderman franchisee hasn't been terminated.

As to the film itself I really enjoyed it apart from two issues.

This movie has been dragged through the dirt for absolutely no reason at all.

It's a shame it's not part of the official MCU because this is how you do a superhero origin story and make it entertaining.

Very much enjoyed it, Tom hardy is great in everything he does!

The acting is bad and the story is the same old boring garbage we've already seen a thousand times.

But simply because i enjoyed it to this grade, i laughed, rejoiced and got treated with some great action, Also at the end got a treat hoping for a spiderman?

In conclusion Venom is super bad, super mediocre and predictable and , I think I'm being quite generous giving him a 3/10.

Not Scary, but Highly Entertaining .

Rushed and predictable .

This fast paced movie has all the stuff you want for example there's one scene where he run over by a car his pinky finger and leg were broken all of a sudden venom the creature mended his leg and finger the screen was showing that for like 5 seconds.

The action scenes had good and bad to them, as the black-on-blackness makes it really hard to see whats going on sometimes, but the escape from the government guys and music is pumped w/ adrenaline.

Glass half empty approach, I listened to the other reviews and decided to take my own risk.

It was worth watching for a buck not seven dollars.

The film is overall Exciting and fun!

But still overall entertaining.

Most of the time it's a snooze fest!!

" The movie was fun, intriguing, and energizing.

The sight of Hardy cooling down in a lobster tank or flashing expressions of gormless confusion for nearly two hours does not make for pleasing entertainment.

It wants to be all portentous and Marvel-y (Ludwig Göransson's bombastic score, the end credits malarkey), but channelling Stanley Ipkiss might have been a helluva lot more entertaining.

A marvel movie that's actually worth watching .

This movie is great if you want an enjoyable action-humour movie to watch with your friends and family.

It gives time to explain the villain and his motive, not just a megalomaniac who wants to destroy and rule the world (it has been obsoleted, remember Justice League :( ), a humanized hero, who is nobody, but willing to do the best to help people around him, a little ingredients of love life, sweet but not too much romantism, simply, it can relate easily to people, and oh.. Stan Lee appearance is perfect and entertaining.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

I loved the movie but not that much,story was so much predictable,I know this is the first part of movie,they made it just for character development I bet other future releasing parts will be great

The first half-hour of this movie is a boring slog with a whiny, uninteresting protagonist, followed by nearly two more hours of hilarious mistake after mistake.

Overall though it is an enjoyable film.

It's worth watching, even if you just Redbox it.

Venom: Underrated and undeservingly disliked but it was an enjoyable watch nonetheless!

So, despite taking a villain and turning them into a hero, Venom still felt pretty solid, especially with the setup for an exciting sequel.

Feels the a first time director from the 90s following cliche after cliche.

I was so sick of & bored of the Marvel takeover as it seemed that the cinema was completely infested with massive budget c.

The action scenes are good, but very confusing, and too few.

It sure is a shame when a film like Venom comes out and at best it's generic and at worst it's boring.

For me, I just wanted more 'why', but overall I enjoyed it.

I don't understand all of the hate, I don't love this film, it felt a bit rushed, the villain was bland, wasted two characters, felt too short and like it didn't have a plot and it was rather tame.

It wasn't poorly made in terms of budget or even acting, really - it's just a little shallow and boring.

It's a movie people, cool action, entertaining and funny.

It also brought for some pretty entertaining moments when venom spoke to Eddie in his head.

A story so safe and predictable it's hardly worth watching.

Really enjoyed it.

Endless American wars, corrupt American politicians, bankrupt American healthcare, AND lousy American movies and propaganda.

Worth the watch .

Anyway it was a exciting, fun and interesting movie.

Highly unoriginal, cliched And formulaic.

The whole movie is a cliché of the superhero genre.

Also, the movie is pretty fast paced and has the right mix of humour and action.

Nevertheless, minor gripes aside, its a well constructed and enjoyable addition to the Marvel catalogue.

A fast paced fun movie with an amazing performance by Tom Hardy and an accurate portrayal of Venom as an Ant-hero

The Life foundation is just boring.

the movie did not have that much action, but as a fan of spiderman, it was very enjoyable to see a good adaptation of Venom (that actually looked the part of venom correctly) And as an origin story, it set up Venom in a good way to have a proper sequel against a famous villain.

The bike chase scene was so much fun and really ramped up the wow factor for me as the movie continues to entertain as it goes onThe fusion of Venom with Brock is very entertaining with some really good humor and writing for Venom with so many good quips and personality quirks coming from him.

I was excited about it at first, they got the casting choice right, Ruben Fleischer was announced as director, and it was gonna be a dark horror movie take on the character, But in the end, that's not what we got, due to greed and political correctness, what we got was a restrained and watered down mess with tonal whiplash that wasn't violent enough, I walked out disappointed and hating it.

There are some complaint I have, one of which is the special effects at certain times, another is the "oh no he died, just kidding"-cliché.

Most of the people who came to the movie probably expect to see an action thriller movie, and the intro could be too long and boring for those kinds of movies.

The beginning is bizarre and confusing with a bunch of weird sci-fi stuff blazing by at a blistering pace, and then the film stops dead in its tracks to eventually introduce us to our main character, Eddie, and essentially spends an hour giving us his life story.

A boring mess.

Worth watching the one time...

However, Tom Hardy's acting is incredible and the dynamic between venom and him is very entertaining, making it an enjoyable watch.

I was hesitant at first because of the bad reviews it got, but i forced my self to see it, very enjoyable movie, so good, worth ur time and money.

This was a waste of my time.

It is big, bold, fast-moving, unapologetic, and very very funny.

This was so entertaining and fun!

The action scenes were amazing and is the reason why the movie is thrilling and became a box office hit.

Awful.. waste of my time .

Don't watch it, it is a waste of time

Tom Hardy is a good choice for Eddie Brock and the humor between him and Venom make intense moments have a little spice to it.

HOrrible predictable movie .

The movie is quite entertaining and fun , I guess most people who hate it didn't even watch it

Thrilling and compelling entertainment.

The beginning part of the movie could of been worked however afterwards the storyline becomes very addictive due to the comedic , action packed story.

Nice and entertaining movie .

Huge plot holes but if you can look past them it was enjoyable.

The plot is a bit rushed and seems to rely on some contrived areas but there's the odd enjoyable scene later on which is again largely on the shoulders of the lead actor.

It's a VERY entertaining movie.

The first act is ham-fisted, charmless and dull.

The entire theater enjoyed it; ignore the whining critics who get upset at anything not formulaic .

Very cliché and predictable, nothing new, it's a shame because it had good actors in it.

Poor cast, poor script, some bad actors plus I FELL ASLEEP.

Acting 7/10 Script 2/10 Plot 3/10 Screenplay 5/10 Cinematography 4/10 Soundtrack 2/10 Special Effects 7/10 Editing 4/10Overall Venom has its moments to be held and saved nearly by Tom hardy, but the film was shot so blandly the bad script takes over the film very much and the compelling aspect that makes a film unique doesn't even feel like it's there, feels as if the director forced it to be there.

Verdict based on facts: Venom is a very entertaining movie; That simple.

It was like watching the Evil Dead again for the first time, in that i truly enjoyed it in a dumb way.

This first thing to be said about Venom is it is really, really boring.

The whole movie felt disjointed at times and almost a chore to finish.

Great actors, though and a fun, enjoyable premise.

Anyway, he eventually gets in contact with the Venom, this alien thing with confusing intentions, and then the movie goes beyond ridiculous.

Good movie and entertaining, didn't get why the critics hated this .

Worst movie, I've seen in a while.

Very entertaining .

boring .

Nevertheless, it's just so entertaining and well-paced that it's hard to get too worked about its occasional narrative shortcomings.

Has you on the edge of your seat.

The action is fast paced and fun.

Venom is a slow-burning film so you do have to be patient when waiting for the action to kick in; whilst the action sequences are never 'blow your mind' crazily brilliant they are good enough to hold your attention and I did find the action sequences to be satisfying and acted as a nice backdrop to the fairly decent origin story.

Overall, I found the movie to be enjoyable and funny regardless of its many flaws.

Now for venom I loved it I really did it was both funny and intense Tom Hardy is funny as hell and also really funny as venom the rest of the plot was nice it made sense the post credit scenes got me hyped and even the new song by Eminem was fire so to some it all up venom gets a 8-10 funny and really awesome

Movie was entertaining all the way through.

The film also seems disjointed and I read that 40 minutes of scenes were deleted (including some of Tom Hardy's favorite) and that may explain that this film was badly edited and perhaps some critical scenes that would have made the movie better were removed.

Long, plodding, boring, how much more can be said.

After i saw this harsh critics i decided to dont watch this movie but last night i watched the movie it was to fun but it was some holes in screenplay i thing it was because of the censorship for delet some r rated scenes and another weakness of movie was the slow rhythm of movie and the change of the venom character was to fast and it was non sense.....

This family film is indeed watchable and entertaining.

Sure I'm familiar with comics and he was a anti hero in some, but this movie missed the mark to create a unique film, this movie is so bland and generic I felt as if I watched it before, the characters are boring the villain is even more boring the CGI final fight was ehh, and the ending is ugh, the action is so repetitive and unnecessary, this movie was god awful and the soundtrack was even worse, this movie is the downfall as compared to Eminem's song for this movie which was probably arguably even more worse and annoying than the film itself.

An enjoyable movie, despite its glaring flaws.

Enjoyable .

Slow paced, superstitious junk .

It's action packed, adventurous, funny, filled with effects and gripping as Eddie with the help of Venom sets about stopping Carlton Brock from creating the ultimate weapon.

I enjoyed the first half, and then was quite bored, as there was nothing except a plain obvious action extravaganza which is lackluster in front of bigger guys like MCU and even DC.

The story line and plot is too predictable and at times unintentionally funny.

This movie is fun and enjoyable like an old Jean Claude Van Damme.

Apart from this: Extra dose of awkward comedy; Plenty of plot holes; Eye souring visual effects; Bland music; Beaten down story; and even the fight sequences try hard to prevent you from enjoying this.

Otherwise, don't waste your time.

The storyline is not well constructed (in my opinion), but it is a enjoyable.

Fun and entertaining--what's the big deal with the reviews?.

Sad thing is, while said first half was slow, at least Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock and other characters were interesting and deep.

The movie is enjoyable and easy to watch, Venom is funny and not looks like dangerous.

Watched it with my wife yesterday and we both enjoyed it very much!

The plot is funny and quite gripping.

The movie is fun, mainly after we see the "real Venom", it becomes an entertaining dark comedy almost body-cop movie.

Completing the troika, Venom also has another collector's item - a bland Riz Ahmed turn as an Elon Musk-y visionary saddled with dreadful dialogue ("Find my Symbiote NOW").

Thoroughly enjoyable: ignore the critics as usual .

lazy and pointless .

I found the movie interesting, funny and enjoyable.

Exciting storyline, great effects and entertaining dialogues ...

The story is entertaining, fun and thankfully, reasonably different from most of the super hero movies.

"Venom" Review (4/10)Every so often a bad movie comes along that you watch and when you get done watching it, you find out then you actually hated it and enjoyed it.

There are many exciting action scenes but they can be too far apart so most scenes in-between were mind numbingly boring.

this was a pretty excellent movie, I really enjoyed it and Tom Hardy was brilliant.

Good, entertaining movie .

It was a free movie but a waste of 2 hours of my life I'll never get back.

Horrendously boring in an already oversaturated superhero franchise .

Guys, this actually is a very fun and entertaining movie.

And in this movie Venom is boring and doing too much joke.. I seriously suprised and said ''What the hell is this?

The repartee between Venom and Brock is okay, but Upgrade, which I haven't seen yet, has a more entertaining take on the same basic concept in the *trailer*.

Ignore the pretentious critics - this is solidly entertaining .

Still completely worth watching if you're willing to wait a bit.

A bit bland .

Venom moves fast, talks slow, and has separation issues.

PROS:Tom Hardy's Entertaining PerformanceVenom HimselfRuben Fleischer's Solid DirectingFun Action ScenesSolid GCIIts Weird (In A Good Way)CONS:It's Not Rated RVisually BlandConflicting TonesBoring VillainUnderused Michelle Williams

The first part of the movie is a bit slow, up until Eddie meets Venom.

The movie is so breathtaking and the CGI is beautifully created and it looks phenomenally striking!

I really enjoyed it, there are moments where i feel too much was cut out, if i did not read spiderman all my youth i would not know what it meant.

The storyline is overall good, fun, entertaining, but i think, the storyline is too slow, especially at the conflict.

Eddie's journalist montage edited over BLM and pride riots, the diverse San Franciscan backdrop, the villian being a thinly veliled metaphor for millionaires like Elon Musk who waste their money on space explorations when it could be used for combatting climate change or cancer research, homeless people being taken advantage of for these experiments....

Very entertaining movie.

In terms of the story, there are times when the side characters need their screen time and this is when it's in danger of dragging, becoming boring and just doesn't have the pace to keep us interested in these characters.

There's so many questions left unanswered because of the fast paced storyline I got up to do some ironing.

Really enjoyed it more than I thought I would .

Recycled Story Line But Very Entertaining and Hilarious.

Still the Venom is entertaining enough that I was able to have a good time with it.

EXTREMELY enjoyable film.

But events take an unexpected turn when Brock falls victim to Drake's experiments and becomes Venom which ultimately puts Brock on a collision course with Drake himself...

Ruben Fleischer's direction is also great, resulting in some really enjoyable and well made action sequences.

The rest of the film he mopes over her, is forced to seek her and her new-boring-doctor-boyfriend, she kisses him as a symbiote, and they decide to remain friends.

Entertaining movie which kept my attention throughout.

This was the entertaining part of the film and makes it worth watching.

Funny & action packed.

Unfortunately, all the supporting cast play their rolls so straight-laced that scenes lacking the title character and Eddie are often plain boring.

The concept of this protagonist, who is practically inactive because of this being controlling him became so intriguing to watch, seeing this guy who had ultimately no control over the situation he was in.

That being said, I love the visuals of the Venom parasite when it's free, it really has a special, fascinating texture.

The first act intro and set up, the endless cliches, the contrived dialogue, the special effects circa 1998...

I just enjoyed it.

There's some decent acting, some of the cgi is pretty good and the relationship between Eddie and Venom (Hardy acting with Hardy) has some entertaining moments.

very bad.. don t waste your time.. 5 it s a big rating!

In a sea of boring sequels based on Marvel comics this is a refreshment.

So, how is Eddie out and about like nothing happened?

This was fun, exciting and had me laughing, clapping, jumping out of my seat.

The acting is all around actually good as well, it's just the script that really holds the film so far back and it's the characters around Eddie that make it so boring that I don't even like the characters no matter how good their acting and performance is.

Writing and directing - remember I fell asleep.

In my theater experience few movie has got as my mind blowing venom is suc like that , each sequence of the movie speks seperately to th eaudience,more over that the casting of the movie is excellent than any other movie line,totally i loved this movie very much indeed.

kept me on the edge of my seat pretty well, and kept me full of a feeling of pure awesomeness.

Entertaining?

Boring, cliche, movie felt rushed and not authentic.

That said, Venom was still somewhat worth watching, if only for the hunk Tom Hardy is.

The critics, as usual, should be ignored for the buffoons they are: they will get all wet over some boring art-house garbage, then slam something like this.

With a budget of $100,000,000 You kinda see why when you watch this hilarious and at the same time action packed sci-fi for yourself...

Thoroughly Entertaining .

He's the most boring villains ever.

entertaining and funny .

Marvel has become predictable.

A Colossal Waste Of Time .

Symbiote On Symbiote fights were all amazing and very visually entertaining.

Great film good to see a bit of humour in the marvel films really enjoyed it must watch

Enjoyed it from the start to the end, giving the feeling of wanting to see more.

The first half of this film is dull.

Yes there's the plot hole but once you get past that it's very funny and super enjoyable

Mildly entertaining, especially when you can fast forward over the dialogue.

Michelle Williams is boring as Brock's ex, on whom is he is fixated, and Riz Ahmed is one of the most dull villains I've seen on screen in awhile.

But they are virtually always mediocre to poor acting (eg Guardians, Suicide squad) or passable acting but extremely formulaic (Black Panther)Venom is fresh, non formulaic (although it does have an actual story line), the effects are great without being the only qualifier in the film, and the acting is more than first rate.

"Venom" by Ruben Fleischer is neither a rotten film nor the most outstanding comic book adaptation coming from Spider-Man Sony-Marvel deal; at heart, a messy buddy-film of great inner comedy scope that rarely dabs at the source material in tone and pace; in appearance, a long-drawn-out fandango of obscure frames and unintelligible action sequences that provides neither the theatrical drama nor the visual spectacle the most renowned Spider-Man villain deserves.

Those brief moments of thrilling comic violence are representative of the entire 5/10 stars that I would rate this movie.

Unexpected .

Different origin story but still enjoyed it.

Amazing effects a bit of comedy and all together a thrilling action packed throughout the whole movie.

But it is also funny, fast paced and oddly involving.

Instead, it feels like a rehash of a plot we've seen so many times before, with a predictable ending.

Because when this film is the Eddie/Venom adventure, this film is so much fun and entertaining.

The 112 minute running time is a shocking slog as most superhero films are 2 and a half hours, and even Suicide Squad dragged less despite being ten minutes longer than Venom.

Completing the troika, Venom also has another collector's item - a bland Riz Ahmed turn as an Elon Musk-y visionary saddled with dreadful dialogue ("Find my Symbiote NOW").

Venom (7.2) (72%) - A fast paced anti-hero film .

It's funny and it action packed.

Rest of the cast is disappointing to say the least and i wouldn't waste my and yours time to mention those lowly creatures.

Overall, worth watching.

Edit all of his scenes and put them in a supercut on YouTube; you'll cure someone's insomnia.

The story could have been better, but time from time was boring.

Unwatchable!.

In any case everything else just came together well, and, thankfully, there was a bit of humour in the movie that wasn't hamfisted and lame, which helped take the movie from a ridiculous place into somewhere enjoyable.

Overall I genuinely believe this film deserved more than the reception it's had because it was very entertaining!

It wants to be all portentous and Marvel-y (Ludwig Göransson's bombastic score, the end credits malarkey), but channelling Stanley Ipkiss might have been a helluva lot more entertaining.

So Enjoyable.

A much more exciting Marvel film and also very refreshing.

I had heard bad things about it but I really enjoyed it.

I felt that some of Venom's lines were cheesy and cringeworthy but this film was pretty fun and entertaining to watch.

It's an action hero movie that delivers many entertaining moments, and well worth a watch.

Tom Hardy - as both Eddie Brock & (especially) Venom - is a lot of fun, but the antagonist is a toothless cliche; the first 30m felt unnecessary (could've been condensed to about 5-10m) while the ending felt rushed.

It's pretty hilarious and entertaining.

It's ultimately for the best that the thin plot easily dissolves away for exciting zooms and slow-motion explosions, some of which also involve motorcycles and the streets of San Francisco.

The relationship between Eddie (a relatively good guy who's fallen on hard times) and the symbiote (a carnivorus creature with a lack of understanding of the value of human life) is a fascinating juxtaposition and most of the time it's just plain fun!

Very enjoyable .

Venom (2018) is an actually enjoyable movie.

Tonally, the mix works well and there is enough good stuff throughout to make this an entertaining and engaging movie, despite taking a little while to pick up the pace and establish itself.

My expectations were really low, and maybe this is why I enjoyed it so much.

Well it's entertaining enough if you like this sort of movie ( and I do!!

another villain with same powers but stronger than the hero (cliche) so they take him down with the vulnerability of symbiote.

Most of this movie I found to be slow and kinda dull.

The directing and plot were about even and although they weren't the strongest aspects of the film, they certainly did not expose any weak points (plot holes, scenes that drag, pacing, etc.).8/10 - Very funny and entertaining.

Didn't know the backstory of Venom but you don't need that because it's all explained very quickly and that is what makes this a enjoyable really good movie.

Michelle Williams is utterly wasted in a character that's barely memorable (other than the brief forest scene that's admittedly awesome), the villain is boring and cliche, and the first half of the movie (before the Venom character appears) is a dull slog.

It was fun, it was funny, it was dramatic, it was suspenseful and it was visually pleasing.

I'm just a film major, who has seen a great amount of both classic and modern films that have been unfairly dissed and unfortunately disregarded because some pretentious and arrogant European "director" was attached to another project that he abhorrently butchered without regard or care, simply because he could; because he was nameless he could fail and no one would notice and he could win and everyone would see: this is the modern day con artist of film.

The second half moves into predictable comic book territory, i.

When Venom speaks, it quickly goes from eerie to entertaining with the quick witted one liners he spews out, like his unrelated red and blue counterpart.

A classic slow burner of a film - It takes about 40 minutes to get going.

The thing I liked the most without a doubt is the interaction between Tom Hardy and Venom, this was really fun and entertaining to watch.

I really enjoyed it.

It's kinda boring .

That being said, Venom is a very entertaining film with a likeable protagonist (Brock is a victim of circumstance rather than being a bad person) and therefore at no point did I take any sort of disliking to him.

this is very enjoyable and i think the sequal will be even better the this.

Like other revieuws said already, it isnt good but it isnt bad either, just entertaining.

My only issue is the setting is bland at times.

Very boring, not sure why they even called this movie venom, when it had nothing to do with spiderman!

What's more was that this film has possessed huge amount of murmur-ly conversations made it pointless and unexpectedly silly.

Everything in this movie is just ugliness, terrible CGI, dumb villain, so cliche, weak script & dialog even the poster is just horrible it looks like Tom Hardy with diarrhea cow on the half of his face.

Slow start but once the symbiosis is complete I found it hilarious and action packed, Tim Hardy was very good in this type of character.

But it's action packed, the relationship between the 2 works so well and Tom hardy is fantastic .

Thrilling and exciting .

Spider-Slob a total bore .

Every so often a bad movie comes along that you watch and when you get done watching it, you find out then you actually hated it and enjoyed it.

Entertaining and cute as hell need i say more???

Action packed fun.

Film has kept all simple yet entertaining.

But I'm saying this is the worst movie I've ever seen...

WASTE OF TIME.

This was a crazy action packed and funny movie.

Just Got Watching This Movie It's Ok And A Bit Boring Action Was Fun Tho

So boring, uninteresting and really noob acting by the cast.

Originality was thrown out the window, when we got just another explosion crazy, cliché, children's movie.

but i was glad that i actually watched it and i very much enjoyed it.

At the time of writing, this has an IMDB rating of 6.8, while the medicore Ant-Man and the Wasp has 7.1??? I can only assume Michelle Pfieffer absolutely stunning at 60 has upped the ratings of that movie.

I'm 40 and I enjoyed it.

Funny and entertaining, what more can you ask for in a movie .

Eddie's chemistry with Venom is very entertaining.

This was so entertaining and funny.

Starting with the latter, Tom Hardy does his best, and when he has some genuine, non-contrived scenes he's actually pretty great.

I enjoyed it .

Overall, good entertaining fun with a lot of potential for the inevitable sequel, if they can make improvements.

I really don't have to much else to add about this film, it's just pretty boring.

This means that for me Venom was a pointless movie, even though it was techincally pretty sound and it was nice to see Venom in action on big screen.

But overall entertaining .

I mean, basically nothing happens anyway, there's no progression, when the thing decides it likes humans, it tells you so, nothing happened so that you might come to that conclusion your self.

Tom Hardy played a brilliant performace as Brock which was entertaining, believable and most of all relateable.

I really enjoyed it , Tom hardy was the best choice and so much of comedy between venom & hardy Love it .

Honestly, this movie was entertaining and had good action scenes and acting (the interaction between Brock/Venom is quite fun).

The pacing in the first act is really slow and only picks up when Venom shows up.
