The Big Finish

Where to begin. Sony and director Ruben Fleischer started in the early 2000’s pre Marvel back when super hero films were shitty and were handled by those who didn’t comprehend the source material. Venom is not just terrible compared to the influx of comic book films fans have been spoiled to over the past decade. It is just an all around terrible effort. I personally did not mind the slow first act which should be expected in an origin film to set up characters and context. It’s just this movie is boring up until the midway point and even then never really takes off. Respected talents like Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams are given absolutely nothing to work with. It seemed like the cadence of dialogue was off for the whole film. Venom also attempted to be way more funny then it should have been but missed on all of its attempts. There were way too many plot holes. I do think that a solo Venom film could work but this adaption really needed Spider-Man as well as a director who actually gave a shit. Outside of a few good action sequences I don’t think this is 2015 Fantastic Four bad but after seeing this I think the legend Stan Lee will regret his usual cameo here if you know what I mean.
