Venom is without a doubt one of the best movies I have ever seen! It is also one of the most popular movies out right now. Google users rated this movie 95% and 7/10 on IMDb. It came out in theaters on Oct. 5.
In the movie, journalist Eddie Brock wants to take down notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation, Carlton Drake. Carlton creates a new species and tests them using humans. As he tries to take Carlton out, Eddie ends up going to the Life Foundation headquarters after hours and merging with a creature (Venom) which gives him superhuman abilities. Venom tries to control Eddie’s new abilities while Eddie tries to maintain his new alien, Venom.
All in all, the movie was fantastic. The actor who plays Eddie/Venom, Tom Hardy is such an entertaining part of this movie. Not only did he play his part of both journalist and Venom well, but he is also very funny in general. Throughout the movie he slips in puns and funny remarks.
All of the actors are great at knowing how to keep people interested by having comedy but also leaving you with suspense. Venom definitely lives up to the ratings it received.
