Venom Let There Be Carnage Reactions

The first reactions are in for Sony’s upcoming highly anticipated film Venom: Let There Be Carnage – and it looks to follow in the same footsteps as the first film. Ahead of the film’s release worldwide on 1 October, early impressions began to appear online from various media outlets who got to see the first previews. Many critics seem to agree that it’s a wild ride, albeit one that makes similar errors to its predecessor too.

Molly Freeman of Screen Rant praised Eddie Brock and Venom’s fun dynamic, but also panned its fast pacing and messy story:

Meanwhile, Erik Davis of Fandango praised its leading actor Tom Hardy and his charismatic performance once again as Eddie Brock, calling him a scene-stealer. However, he also notes that the film has a “darkly hilarious tone” that carries over from the first film:

Dan Casey of Nerdist had a lot more positive things to say about Venom: Let There Be Carnage, calling it a “wild-ass movie of the highest order” and an “ultraviolent rom com.” Casey also notes that the post-credits stringer, which has become all too common in superhero movies these days, is a definite must-watch:

Finally, Germain Lussier of Gizmodo notes that fans of the first film will find a lot to enjoy in its sequel, though if you didn’t like the first film then this might not be for you. He calls it a “bigger, faster version of the first movie” but ultimately felt that it would be forgettable once the credits rolled:

Venom: Let There Be Carnage is a sequel to 2018’s surprisingly fun (though flawed) Venom, featuring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock who is forced to host his symbiote alter ego, Venom, that grants him supernatural abilities and cannibalistic urges. The sequel will pit Brock and Venom against a new sadistic serial killer, Cletus Kasady, who adopts his own symbiote to become one of Spider-Man’s most vicious adversaries, Carnage.

While the film releases this Friday in some countries, it will only release on 15 October 2021 in South African cinemas.
