Reviews of Venom 2

When it comes to Venom: Let There Be Carnage, it’s simple.
Did you like the first one? You’ll like this one.
Not like the first one? That’s how you’ll feel here.
It’s the bigger faster version of the first movie which I enjoyed and instantly forgot about.
Fun. Frivolous. pic.twitter.com/KseRn6s4E2

Molly Freeman, editora do Screen Rant, said that the film has very charming and fun moments, especially in the relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom. However, he believes the film gets a bit lost in the chaotic energy and carnage, following with a jumble of ideas to the end.
#VenomLetThereBeCarnage has some really entertaining and charming moments—particularly between Eddie & #Venom which is still a super fun dynamic—but the movie gets a bit lost in the #Carnage of it all. There’s too many ideas and the movie just barrels through the mess to the end. pic.twitter.com/IiZAw0qjET

Eric Davis, do Rotten Tomatoes, decided to focus more on Tom Hardy’s acting. In Davis’ opinion, the actor was fantastic in the film, with a unique and entertaining performance, helping to set a wildly hilarious and dark tone for Venom 2.
Tom Hardy is fantastic in #Venom2 – a film that gladly & madly leans into its darkly hilarious tone & then some. Definite NATURAL BORN KILLERS vibes from our villains, but it’s ultimately Hardy who steals every scene w/ a one-of-a-kind performance that’s SO much fun to watch pic.twitter.com/97vO6rHing

Dan Casey, do Nerdist, follows the same line as Erik Davis and claims that Tom Hardy gave 200% of himself in the feature film. Casey defined Venom: Time of Carnage as a wild movie of the highest order and warns fans: “don’t miss the post-credits scene”.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is a wild-ass movie of the highest order. Ultraviolent rom com that is delightfully self aware and weird. Tom Hardy gives 200%. Whatever you do, don’t miss the post-credits. #VenomLetThereBeCarnage pic.twitter.com/yoSBH67wMs

Mike Ryan, do Uproxx, defined the film as stupid, but this stupidity makes it very interesting and makes Ryan like the feature film even more. He highlights the dynamic between Eddie Brock and Venom a lot, highlighting some scenes in the film, such as the moment when the two call themselves losers and when they are watching the sun set together on the beach.
VENOM LET THERE BE CARNAGE: My gosh these movies are SO stupid and I can’t help how much I enjoy them. I could watch 10 more movies of Eddie and Venom calling each other losers. There’s a scene where Eddie and Venom are laying out on the beach together and they watch the sun set.

Venom it suffered a lot from heavy negative reviews when it was released in 2018. Even with its box office success, the film was called chaotic and generic. Recently, in an interview with the website CinemaBlend, Tom Hardy said that the desire to make a good film “has not served the critics who literally criticized us”.
However, the actor decided to look at the pretty side of everything. Looking through the half-full glass, “the audience came en masse, which was very beautiful. It was like watching an underdog being lifted and presented, appreciated and savored for what he really was,” Hardy said.
The actor also said that the sum of heavy criticism and public support were the fuel to make Venom 2.
In a liaison with Sony Pictures’ Tom Rothman, Hardy said, “Look, we got a script to do the sequel to Venom, because we’re really looking forward to taking what we’ve learned from the first film and starting writing the second feature.”
