Not as poor as reported! Actually very enjoyable!

Hi, I was pleasantly surprised by Venom 2. I am not sure whether Andy Serkis and the film makers had intended to moreover produce a movie about Carnage, whilst being aware they would have to reference Venom in the story as well to justify the picture being made. 'Venom' has more name recognition than Carnage so entitling the movie as such may not have to lead to high financial success, so one can understand how they settled on the title 'Venom: Let there be Carnage' as a way of acknowledging the movie's focus was the sub-titular character, as the extent of the Venom's involvement involves little more than bickering with Eddie Brock for spurious reasons, abandoning Eddie to attend an LGBTQ+ disco before having a brief tussle with Carnage during the atypical finale involving fighting atop a church spire surrounded by falling masonry and collapsing gantries etc. Let There Be Carnage is not as bad as has been reported. Whilst one could say that it is not a ‘Good’ film, it is however a huge improvement on the original which was loud and brash with little finesse buried beneath a tiddle wave of nauseating special effects. This new movie is much better scripted, well-acted, swifter in pace and doesn’t outstay it’s welcome beyond 97 well-used minutes. Woody Harrelson is well-utilised in his role as Cletus Kasady, Naomie Harris is well-cast as Francis Barrison and Tom Hardy himself is more tolerable than in the first movie. Even Michelle Williams has a much more refined, though slightly trimmed down, role as Anne Weying. Don’t listen to the negative reviews, this is an enjoyable way to spend 97 minutes of your time. Great fun!

2 stars for the CGI on Carnage but everything else was awful.
The humour isn’t funny, the relationship between Eddie and Venom is just tedious, the story has no real impact, once again Michelle Williams is totally underused. The whole thing is just “meh”. Sony really have no idea how to make a comic book movie.
Ultimately I can’t believe I gave this film a chance after the awful “Venom”
I won’t make the same mistake a third time.

Fell far short of first film

No spoiler.

I was so very much looking forward to the 2nd Venom film and so greatly disappointed.

It had potential, that much is obvious but the story was rushed, predictable and felt like they just didn't care that much, maybe they ran out of time or money or something.

Anyway this film sucked.

I watched it to the end and forced myself to pay attention simply because I had paid for it.

Not worth the current rental price. If I knew how boring and terrible it would be I'd have waited until
it was on Prime or something to give it a watch and then probably would have turned it off within the first half hour.

Not quite carnage but not quite good either.
Verified purchase
This film didn't quite commit carnage on the cast and script but in my opinion neither of these aspects of the film really stood out. The cast, on paper is a good one but they were not helped by a poor script and Dad joke humour. Don't get me wrong Dad jokes can work but in moderation and this film is littered with them whilst being sprinkled with the odd curse word from the lead in what seems to be an attempt to make the film darker which doesn't work. In saying that the CGI is great. The symbiote characters are done well and the fight scenes are decent but there is not enough in this film really to take it above 2 stars except the ending which as a Marvel fan is well worth staying for and did put a smile on my face and is the only reason it gets 2.5 stars (if I could rate a half star that is). I would say if you know little to nothing about Venom or comics then yes you could skip this one but if you are a Marvel fan then endure it and forget it bar one memorable scene at the end.

waaay better than the last one!

I really enjoyed this, felt so much more natural, quite literally loved every one in it! Tom Hardy finally hitting his stride, helped by way better character development, dialogue and story to work with. Michelle Williams and Reid Scott were a blast! Woody Harrelson made a perfect carnage, and Naomie Harris was thrilling to watch, and of course Stephen Graham made me believe every moment.

In the first film, Tom Hardy seemed like a fish out of water with the shallow narrative and lame dialogue, the chemistry with Michelle Williams felt stifled and yea story fell flat. All of these were definitely rectified in the second instalment! And best of all character development didn't "just happen" because Venom suddenly changed his mind, on a whim, at the last moment.

Awful - I gave up after 24 minutes
Verified purchase
Frankly no self-respecting person over the age of 9 would give this anywhere near a decent review. It was dreadful. The first Venom had some intensity, wit and occasional flashes of humour, but this second Venom could claim none of these merits. It insulted the viewers (especially Marvel fans) by sitting back and depending upon the self-indulgence of a badly written script. I had no empathy, sympathy or even tolerance of any of the characters. Even the CGI seemed to be poorer than in the first film. Its a shame because I was looking forward to this film, but I had to give up after 24 minutes - I have far better things to do with my time.

Almost as good as the 1st one but not quite

I must say as i was watching venom 2 i had seen all the bad reviews and i was expecting the worst but for the majority of the film i was really enjoying it. It even got to the stage where i was questioning other peoples opinions. I had some laughs, like the first film, Tom Hardy was great, venom was brilliant and their love hate relationship was really good. Right up to the point where carnage appeared and then it was a case of "...ahhh, now i can see why it wasnt getting the positive reviews id hoped it was going to get!"
Now i see why its not anywhere near as good as first film and in a way the same problem cropped up in this movie as the first. The big finale. It just didnt hit the mark and i think in both films was the least entertaining part. I dont know if its all the cgi or the writers forgetting what is possible or not possible (with regard s to non superhuman behaving like superhumans, surviving events that quite clearly would be instant death etc.) As an example one minute venom is destroying concrete and steel and the next barely able to disturb a church pew!!
Yeah im afraid the film missed the mark by some distance in the end. A real shame, as i said, for the vast majority of the film i WAS entertained and satisfied.
I really cant fault actors performances or anything, just the writing maybe and the final direction and post production edit.
Probably still worth a watch if youre a massive venom fan, youll be dissapointed at the end, but only at the end. I can actually forgive it. I feel i got my moneys worth renting the film but i would have been annoyed if i had bought it i think.
One for true fans or those of a highly forgiving nature. Score has to be average in the end for me.

Film was ok, it's a bit hard for them to portray and human and symbiot falling out but they did an ok job of it, however I thought they pretty much covered that well enough in the first film, no idea why they had to repeat it with worse results. Action was good could have been much, much better. There was little in the way of development with the Venom/Brock characters.
