“Venom: Let There Be Carnage.” Sometimes it is good to take a step back and think about how strange comic books can be. Thirty-seven years ago, Spider-Man used a fast-paced dress machine in The Beyonder’s Battleworld (don’t ask, we’ll be here all day) and now that outfit is the star of its brilliant polyqueer, brain-food, a big money-killing film called ” Venom: Let There Be Carnage. “
Venom: Let There Be Carnage: Movie Review
Comic books work in mysterious ways, but in the case of “Let There Be Carnage,” it works best. The 2018 “Venom” sequel is a vivid, deceptive, story-driven story about eating out the brain that tries to maintain its personality between a rocky home partnership with hard-fought journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy).
Eddie has embraced their extraordinary order. He slowly left Venom destroying their apartment and sharing his space with the two chickens Venom was supposed to eat for dinner – but Venom named them Sonny and Cher so they are now part of an unemployed family. Also, they both fall in love with Eddie’s ex-girlfriend Anne (Michelle Williams), who works full-time without having an affair with a boy named Dan (Reid Scott, “Veep”), a grasshopper who makes Venom shout, often.
Tom Hardy gives the word Venom, and his extreme delivery of the 1990s-soda-commercial-publisher never ceases to amuse. Venom shouts everything he says about happy love, no matter what, and gives a negative comment on almost every boring film scene about people who are not Venom. It’s as if “Macho Man” Randy Savage was the guest manager at “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” He should, by all means, be aggressive and annoying, but Venom is a wonderfully pure soul that is lovable instead.
While Eddie and Venom were arguing, and Venom is in the middle of a rave costume party, covered with rainbow lights and giving public talks about “get out of Eddie’s closet” and the importance of finding a way to “stay together in this f-ball,” has officially become an icon.
There’s a plan here, and since “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” has only 90 minutes, it plows into that building like a mack truck. Eddie is the only journalist the killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson, who is not in the “Natural Born Killers” mode but close enough) will speak to him. Soon, Eddie’s story helped to rush Kasady into the lethal injection room, but not before Kasady bit Eddie’s hand and marked enough to give Venom a seed called Carnage.
Unlike Eddie, Kasady is very happy to let Carnage eat all the brains he wants. But in exchange, Kasady wants Carnage to release Kasady’s long-term childhood sweetheart Frances (Naomie Harris, leaving the excess as the future). Frances is also a killer, but she also has a lot of screaming power – you never know – which is just one of Carnage’s weaknesses.
Both of these symbiotes in “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” are in the midst of a strange relationship, and in the end, it all boils down to which super-alien is the most powerful, but which is deeply committed to their polyamorous love. With a movie actually screaming half, killing half, and every schlock, it’s a modern tender love story with oodles of empathy for everyone in the story. Even the beasts. And all the other beasts.
Andy Serkis turned out to be a wise decision in directing “Let There Be Carnage.” Through his animated films in the films “Lord of the Rings” and “Planet of the Apes”, the actor-turned-actor helped to prove to the world that computer-generated images can be used to enhance old-fashioned imitation, and vice versa, to create a new hybrid version of both genres. . Serkis, who works from a well-executed and smart screenplay by Kelly Marcel (Hardy gets a mixed media credit), keeps the plot small and pre-existing.
That should be as it should be, because as in the previous movie “Venom”, conspiracy is not a reason for us to be here, and yet, we do not always wait for scrutiny. Ignore for a moment that the opening scenes say Woody Harrelson would be a teenager in the 1990s (whatever you say), the film begins with a young girl with great appeal power being transferred to a high-tech center to handle it, the only institution lacking any real content processes. So he just used that power of screaming that he was afraid he would use but he did nothing to stop it. Good thinking there, sports.
On the other hand, putting a big olic hole right there at the beginning of the movie tells the audience aloud and clearly that they just don’t have to worry about things like the plot at this point. “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” is a vivid and fast-paced hero story, unlike any other major Hollywood film of this genre. It squeezes most of the movies into an hour and a half, but it doesn’t feel like it has to belong. It just sounds like we need more movies like that.
