Venom review round-up: Tom Hardy’s new film dubbed ‘poison’ by critics

One of Marvel's greatest and most complex characters is all set to take center stage when Eddie Brock, played by Tom Hardy becomes the host for alien symbiote "Venom".

Cape Town - Tom Hardy says the film industry is "superhero-movie heavy" after starring in upcoming Marvel release Venom.

After his comment that "There are, like, 30, 40 minutes worth of scenes that aren't in this movie" spread rapidly online, the actor insisted Monday during Venom's Hollywood premiere that he was misinterpreted. This includes, in his words, "mad puppeteering scenes" and "dark comedy scenes". I know the whole team has poured a lot of love into it, and I've really enjoyed it. Well, it sounds like that's exactly what the movie delivers, complete with a weird and fascinating performance from Tom Hardy that makes the movie surprisingly amusing, intentional or not. That their assertions are different to that of the film's star and all the press releases that came out early in the film's production though, makes it sound like studio backpedalling and PR rather than an honest assessment of the actual movie. For that film, there were rumors of there being a ton of extra Joker footage that ended up on the cutting room floor, and by this point, many seem to agree that Joker was under-used in this film. I'd be hard-pressed to provide a more nuanced explanation than that, as Venom plays fast and loose with the rules of symbiotes.

I won't even be totally disgusted with Hardy, because for all intents and purposes, those might be his favorite stuff.

Tell It to Us StraightA few fun Venom-centric moments aside, it has almost nothing to offer. As an executive producer I knew anyway what the story was about and that's not what it was. I don't think you need me to tell you that.

"Now, I sometimes do what I want to do, but I also have to make decisions that take care of my family".

Well, it will all depend on Venom's box office success for the makers to decide if the movie will receive a sequel down the line. But with Tom Hardy doing the iconic Bollywood Mogambo dialogue, one thing is pretty definite.

And Brandon Davis said: "Action-sequences and Eddie and Venom's odd relationship are the highlights of #Venom but if Sony wants to move forward with a universe, it needs to just keep the few parts that work and scrap the large portion which doesn't". Is there an R-rated cut sitting there?

Venom will hit the theatres on October 5.
