Love Tom Hardy. Other than Dunkirk, I can't think of a bad (overrated) movie he has been in. Not really.
However, I also can't recall a movie, set in modern times, that had sand buggys in them that turned out to be a good movie. 

Venom? Has both.
Oh boy which way will the pendulum swing?

I do not like the Carnage powers of the symbiote blasting out to bludgeon it's strike others. Then again, I haven't enjoyed Venom the character since the DeMatteis days, so maybe that power is current!

i'm not sure how i feel about this movie.  The storyline seems better than I initially thought it would be, but I'm a little leery of that CGI.  Not having Spidey in it also gives me a big pause.

Exactly how I feel. The scenes look top notch and well acted with Hardy's impactful presence and then you get the Venom action stuff and it just looks ... cheap. Like a low budget "B" movie. Not sure they could do better with it, just that it still looks off. Maybe it will show better later?

I agree the trailer looks a lot better than I had expected but I've never cared for Venom.  I doubt I'll be seeing this one.

I know I will not step foot in a theater for this.

Same here.  And only a "maybe" for watching it on Netflix.

Probably gonna pass.  Just doesn't really interest me.


However, I also can't recall a movie, set in modern times, that had sand buggys in them that turned out to be a good movie.

I can think of one.

Okay, alright, while this isn't a total change for me, I am a little, just a tad, more hopeful about this after seeing this final trailer.
Am I still nervous, oh yeah, but with this clip I can at least see the potential in the effects that I could not see before.

Maybe this won't be as bad as I feared?

I'll see it because I'll have to know.

Know what it's like. Know how bad it is. I'll have to know for myself. That way I can ask "why" when it's over.

The hospital I work for gives employees free movie passes for their birthday so I decided to use mine on Venom.  I'm glad I did.  Only because it meant I didn't pay real money to see this movie.  Once again, Sony shows why they shouldn't be allowed to make Marvel movies.

Saw this today (Christmas) while in the hospital with my mother-in-law (lack of oxygen to her heart ... all is fine now  Smiley) and have to say that there were parts I really liked. It still seemed like 4 different movies, but yeah, wasn't as bad as I thought or initially feared from seeing the first ten minutes or so.

I thought the first section was pretty damn bad, but once the "6 months later" text appeared it got vastly better, for a few, before changing to a different tone and then it got kinda odd and then it got good again and then not so much and then okay, but another different movie, bufore finding its feet and ending strange but okay.

That is my "Venom like" review of Venom
