Sony releases their long-awaited sequel to fan-favorite anti-hero Venom. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is an action-packed sequel, with amazing character chemistry and hilarious scenes.

Eddie Brock is still struggling to coexist with Venom. However, when deranged serial killer, Cletus Kasady, is infected with an alien symbiote, Eddie and Venom have to come together and stop him.
If you left Venom asking for more action, then Venom: Let There Be Carnage gave you what you wanted.

Also, if you might think the fighting would take you out of the story but it is the opposite. It helps more along with the story. With amazing computer-generated imagery, every time we get to see Venom or Carnage, you won’t be noticing the issue in the scenes where CGI is being used.

One of the major focuses in Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the character chemistry found with each of the characters’ relationships with one another. The movie focuses primarily on two relationships: Venom and Eddie, and Carnage and Cletus. When we see Venom and Eddie together, we see two very different personalities. Throughout the movie, we see how they develop a strong connection to defeat Carnage despite their differing personalities. As for the relationship between Cletus and Carnage, we see how they are able to easily become one. This was the most enjoyable part of the movie: seeing both of these dynamics going face to face put me on the edge of my seat.

Lastly, you can’t have a Venom movie without it being hilarious. The humor was on point and coming from Venom. Whenever we get to see Eddie and Venom in full agreement, the movie becomes a buddy action film. You might think too many jokes would simply ruin the film, but in this case it just makes it more entertaining. The delivery of each joke isn’t awkward, annoying, or time consuming.

One of the most focused critiques is that the movie is way too short being  a mere 1 hour 38 minutes long. Although the movie is definitely shorter than the last Venom movie, which was 1 hour and 52 minutes, the sequel’s straightforward plot makes up for the short length, as you will never catch yourself feeling bored.

Another critique is that this movie should be Rated-R instead of Rated PG-13. This isn’t really a big deal because it doesn’t take much away from the story, as the story simply includes more violence.

Sony Pictures Studios have started to develop more movies for their Marvel characters. So we will continue getting something new for Venom.
