It succeeds as a piece of entertainment despite the foundational lunacy upon which it was built.

Venom is not the best Marvel movie, however, it will show you a good time after work. [Full review in Spanish]

Imagine if Rick Moranis had an alien in his head that sounded like Freddy Krueger and you start to see where the movie is going.

What works in this movie's favor is a tone that makes it feel less like a response to the Marvel Cinematic Universe than an escapee from the Troma Pictures vaults that somehow managed to evade release for the last quarter century.

Venom is a movie that's not without faults. And while the comic book genre is competitive, we can't dismiss that Venom is an enjoyable entry nonetheless.

The excessive slow motion underscores how outdated this character is... Still, it is a nice movie. How could it not be, with so many good actors attached? [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a film that simply works with a simple plot and entertains with action scenes and effects. [Full review in Spanish]

It may feel a bit like super hero movies before there were epic sagas, such as the Iron Man and Captain America franchises, but Venom is still a fun time at the movies.

The story is aided by having top notch acting talent like Hardy and Williams. There is also plenty of action and humor. The formulaic plot has its problems, but overall, this is an entertaining movie.

Venom serves up a menu of spicy hard PG-13 action but also includes a well balanced sampling of scrumptiously surprising buddy humor between an unemployed reporter and a flesh eating symbiote. We're ready for the second course.

I don't know if you need to rush into theaters to see Venom, but when you can rent it, please do...it's not an amazing film but I can say I had a good time watching it.

The movie becomes about Eddie and Venom coming to an arrangement. There is a lot of humour, including a sly riff on the Batman movies from Marvel rival DC Comics.

It never reaches the level of the best the MCU has to offer, but it isn't the absolute disaster many of us were dreading either. [Full review in Spanish]

...Venom knows this, and because of that, it doesn't bother to make much sense. Its entire deal is just having fun with the dynamic between Eddie Brock-Tom Hardy giving a downright incredible performance as a man possessed.

For the most part, Venom is very watchable and in some sections goddamn delightful. Yet, these moments make one wish the movie was better as a whole.

Truly, a film this gloriously bad deserves to be seen on the big screen. If you want to see something good, see something else. If you want to see something fun... well, this is it.

The tone waffles about and the plot is utter nonsense, but if you can set aside all the expectations and baggage of what you think a Venom movie should be, you just might be surprised by how much you enjoy just what this movie is.

Venom may not be the greatest comic book movie of all time, but it has its moments and isn't quite as bad as you may have been led to believe.

Like a runaway train, Venom teeters on the edge of the rails, inches away from becoming an absolute wreck. Like it or hate it, you won't be able to to look away.

For me, Venom succeeded at what Suicide Squad failed to do: deliver an enthusiastically weird superhero spinoff with an edgy-but-funny lead.
