First Venom: Let There Be Carnage Reactions Arrive

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

With just a couple of days away from release, Sony’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage is ready to take a bite out of the box office competition. With Shang-Chi basically conquering theaters for the past 4 weeks, the second film should definitely help liven things up because, between you and me, October is looking pretty busy.

The first Venom was a smash hit for Sony and became the seventh highest-grossing movie of 2018. However, the film generally received negative reviews for its narrative, inconsistent tone, and lack of connections to Spider-Man. Tom Hardy though did get some praise for his performance. This time around, Venom 2 is directed by legendary mo-cap actor, Andy Serkis.

After a fan screening was held, critics took to social media to give their spoiler-free thoughts on the upcoming follow-up. What do they have to say? Well, a lot actually. Critics have praised that the sequel is very entertaining. Other reactions have mentioned how wild the film is. Some have even loved Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson’s performances, the Eddie/Venom bond, and the post-credit scene. Right down below you can see a compiled list of each reaction.
