Venom: Let There Be Carnage Movie Review

          The new Venom movie, released in early October and the sequel to Venom made by Sony, Starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock also known as Venom and Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady also known as Carnage. 

          In my opinion, I felt that Venom: Let There Be Carnage could have been better and was not up to par with the first Venom movie. I feel that the movie focused too much on Cletus Kasady’s story. It felt that at the very least, there were two main characters or that Venom was a side character to Carnage’s story.  They could have made there more violence or chaos versus most of the battle between them in a church with not one random, innocent civilian. Overall it was not as good as it could be.

          The villain in this movie is Carnage, who is a symbiote derived from Venom’s blood when Cletus, a deranged serial killer that is in love with Shriek, attacked Brock and bit him in which he tasted his blood. The love relationship between Cletus and Shriek and their drive to reunite with one another is what makes Carnage more humane instead of having an all-out Carnage and more chaos. This also makes people wonder if Cletus really wanted carnage or if he just wanted vengeance?

          The post-credit scene confirms that Venom will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it could be possible that he will be in the newest Spider-Man movie Spider-Man: No Way Home. Since the new Spider-Man movie will already feature Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus, there could be a chance that the multiverse will play a big role in the movie and lead to the inevitable interaction between Venom and Spider-Man.
