#Venom is freaking incredible. No lie, I full on loved this film. Embrace the goofiness, embrace the laughs. I truly think this is a movie the majority of critics are being too hard on. I had a completely great time, and I hope you give this movie a chance. I want more.

Saw #Venom tonight. Much, much better than critics are saying. The Tom Hardy/Venom dynamic is A1. Some weak supporting cast tho, & the action scenes would've benefited from an R rating. If you have any desire at all to watch the movie but are still on the fence, I say, go for it.

#Venom is a silly, spastic, high-energy jolt of fun. Pure popcorn goofiness in the vein of superhero movies before they took themselves so seriously. Tom Hardy is playfully hilarious in the role and while the movie is hardly great, it's not even close to a disaster. It's a ride.
wow #Venom was just trash. Editing was all over the place and the script seemed like it was written by a first grader. had 1 decent action scene but the CGI managed to ruin even that. Time to give up Sony honestly lol
