Venom | Ratings & Reviews

"The advertising tagline for the chronically dull and odious Venom reads: "The world has enough superheroes." Thus implying the panacea for Hollywood's over-supply of smug do-gooders is this film's protagonist: an egomaniacal ‘gotcha!’ TV journalist with a voice inside his head belonging to an alien parasite. An instance if ever there was one of the remedy being worse than the poison."

Flicks, Luke BuckmasterFlicks

"This is what a series of bad decisions stretched out over a very long development history looks like. Venom wants to be a darkly comedic body-horror and a compelling anti-hero comic book caper. It also tries to shock life back into Sony's sub-Marvel mini-verse, which seemingly died along with the Amazing Spider-Man films. It only succeeds in being a supremely average film that mostly frustrates and baffles rather than thrills."

Flicks, Daniel RutledgeFlicks

""Venom" is a textbook case of a comic-book film that's unexciting in its ho-hum competence, and even its visual-effects bravura."

VarietyVariety

"Fleischer made a better comedy-horror with Zombieland, but Venom's a decent buddy actioner. You might even laugh your head off..."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Why can't the movie make Venom properly dirty? The PG-13 rating seriously hurts."

Time OutTime Out

"Venom is riddled with the poison of dullness."

The GuardianThe Guardian

""Venom" feels like pretty weak poison."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A significant problem in a film full of them is that Eddie comes off as a dope, an eager dufus hardly convincing as a boundary-pushing journo or someone who can out-think a titan of technology."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Venom is neither triumph nor train-wreck. It's a mediocre origin story, a superhero host that sadly fails to bond with its comedy parasite."
