“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” is an American superhero movie released in 2021.
The film is directed by Andy Serkis, starring actors Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson, and Naomie Harris.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” tells that after Eddie and the alien symbiont “Venom” combined, the two of them became roommates and started an alternative cohabitation life.
Usually Venom will help Eddie make breakfast, and will suppress his desire to eat people and go shopping with him in the grocery store.

But with the emergence of another symbiote “Carnage”, the two must also cooperate again to fight against Carnage, which will only threaten their peaceful life.
In 2018, Sony Pictures, which holds the rights to remake Spider-Man and related character movies, chose “Venom”, a villain with high popularity in comics, as the beginning of “Sony Spider-Man Universe”.
Suo hopes to develop a series around atypical heroes like “Suicide Squad”.
However, “Venom” ultimately received mixed reviews because of the lack of novelty in the story.
Therefore, the sequel is now released after 3 years. In addition to continuing the story, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” also shoulders the mission of reversing the decline of the series.
The attraction of “Venom”
Personally, the most fascinating aspect of the movie “Venom” is that it uses Venom as the protagonist, the viscous villain with fangs.
“Venom” reveals the other side through his encounter with Eddie, a reporter played by Tom Hardy, behind his seemingly cruel and cruel appearance.
This reverses the existing impression that this kind of extraterrestrial “symbiosis” is very disgusting and may cause irreparable harm to people like “Alien” or “Life”.
Although “Venom” is not a success.
But under the sparks of the encounter between Eddie and the two losers of Venom, it also made the sequel “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” change the direction of the story through the failure lessons learned earlier.
Rather than using a formula to try to tell a story with a complete cause and effect, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” focuses more on the entertainment aspect.
The film uses Venom’s beloved character to add many comedic elements that may be of interest to the audience in the seemingly dark and violent movie.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” tries to save the future of this series.
The character interaction of “Venom: Let There Be Carnage”
We can see many interesting interactions between Eddie and Venom in the film.
Since Eddie forbids the venom to continue to eat people, the two go to Mrs. Chen who runs a grocery store to buy chocolates.
They quarreled because of conflicts of opinion, and in the end the two needed each other.
They work together against the newly emerging villain Carnage who has come to find their revenge.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” under the foundation of “romantic comedy”, with the uncontrolled venom, the noisy and noisy that will constantly provide opinions and express opinions to Eddie, give the whole movie a very unique appearance.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” fully demonstrates the emotional relationship between Eddie and Venom, the more noisy and sweeter the relationship after the beating and scolding.
Although the venom messed up the house. But if you help me make breakfast, I will clean it up for you.
You scold me for idiots, I scold you for waste, and go to the bar to get drunk if you argue.
On the surface, Eddie and Venom seemed to be at odds with each other, but in the end they found that they could never be separated from each other.
They try to accommodate each other’s shortcomings and explore each other’s strengths.
As long as I can be with you, it doesn’t matter if I only eat chocolate.
Is the “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” review good?
Perhaps on the surface “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” is more a brainless idiot than “Venom”, which has been so negatively reviewed.
Eddie and Venom no longer need to figure out how to face the conspiracy of biotech companies and the crisis of being hunted by the police.
As long as the two of them catch the unexpectedly born son back together, the work will be over.
But I have to say, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” knows that I can’t please professional film critics with creative and ingenious stories.
Instead, it uses the chemical effect of the collision between the two to make the general audience happy. This choice is actually very smart.
There is no doubt that “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” is not a nutritious movie.
As a dish that uses a lot of junk food as a base, it doesn’t have the unique sauce like “BrightBurn” and “The Suicide Squad” can make people hooked.
But take a step back and think, the absurd and humorous atmosphere of the whole movie “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” is at least not as burdensome as fried food.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” can at least make the audience happily walk out of the theater with the cuteness of venom in their minds after the movie is over.
Characters and Follow-up Development
Therefore, although the title of the title is taken as “Let There Be Carnage”.
But “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” except for the protagonist Eddie and Venom.
Whether it is the serial killer played by Woody Harrelson, the villain Carnage, the “Shriek” with Homo superior ability, or Eddie’s ex-girlfriend Anne, they are almost all used to highlight the protagonist’s functional supporting roles.
They are not even as eye-catching as Mrs. Chen who runs a grocery store.
I think it would be a pity for viewers who are looking forward to seeing “Carnage” in “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” or more developmental audiences.
But even so, Sony Pictures still wants to further create more room for development for the subsequent films with “Spider-Man” copyrighted roles such as “Morbius”, “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, and “Kraven the Hunter”.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” not only clearly shows the charm of the characters themselves, but also at the end of the movie. The final stinger of “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” has been exposed! The “Venom” and other characters, even It is the universe that makes the connection.
All this shows Sony’s ambition to start with the venom that can keep a place in the audience’s hearts, and then show off its skills.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” film review conclusion
On the whole, although “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” is relatively conservative and mediocre, there is not much progress in essence.
But we can also regard it as a sequel that removes impurities from the previous work “Venom” and retains the essence.
I believe that as long as the audience who likes the interaction between Eddie and Venom, holding the correct expectations, they will not give “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” this “symbiosis” as friendship or friendship. The works made in love movies are too negative.
As for Woody Harrelson, it goes without saying, although I can feel that he seems to be trying to create the feeling of “The Silence of the Lambs” Hannibal for the character.
But the two of Venom and Eddie really didn’t have room for him to intervene.
“Venom: Let There Be Carnage” Ending Stinger
As for the “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” end credits, after solving Carnage’s problem, Huan Eddie and Venom head to the island resort to enjoy their leisure time.
Venom responds to Eddie’s request to show him the knowledge he has gained during the distant interstellar journey.
Suddenly there was a shock around them, and they found themselves in another room, and Peter, played by Tom Holland, appeared on TV.
Why does this happen, because Venom has the ability to travel to another universe?
Or is it because Peter Parker in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” asked Doctor Strange to help him erase people’s memories of Spider-Man, but he accidentally created a “multiverse” result?
Although this ending egg clearly suggests that Venom and Spider-Man will meet in the future, in what form?
Is Venom joining the “Marvel Universe”?
Or is it that the Spider-Man of the “Marvel Universe” mistakenly entered the “Sony Spider-Man Universe”?
This must wait for the subsequent announcement of other works before it can be determined.
