ILL McKenzie’s thoughts on the Movie “Venom”
Most People know I am a movie buff, so it was just natural to add this new section to review movies.
First up is the new universe in the cinema world. A lot of people was not too sold on this new addition with the first trailers released for this movie, me being one of them. I was not sold on the idea and the movie looked very cheesy, was set in San Francisco not New York with Spider-Man in the end I said I will still give it a chance. There were rumors that Spider-man would make an appearance in this move, even though he is apart of the Marvel Universe, he is technically still own by Sony. So in my mind, there was a chance, yes a slim chance they would bridge the universe with the technical loop holes I created in my head in the Sony/Disney Spider-Man joint contracts. That is here nor there, lets break down the movie
As far as providing a back story for Eddie Brock and Venom origin, I felt they did and excellent job. We not going go into whether or not the followed the comics or not, just how the connected the dots for the movie viewer. Without giving away too many spoilers, the movie breaks down how and why Venom and other symbiotes made it to earth. If you haven’t watched the movie yet, that is something you want to pay attention to..
Skipping ahead the movie provides a strong storyline, some cheesy scenarios, couple decent action scenes, Stan Lee famous cameo, and Marvel post credit scene that will draw you in ready for the sequel. Is it movie of the year worthy? No it is not, but it is worth the price of admission
With all that said I give this movie a 4 out of 5
