It’s three years later and Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is about re-establish his journalist career.
The opportunity arrises when Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) a psychopathic serial killer requests reporter Brock to tell the tail of his murdering career. Harrelson who appears as if he were the image of Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs challenges Brock and his Venom partner to the extent that Brock with Venom inside charges the cage Kasady is held in and the first bite from Kasady draws blood. It is not a surprise when we learn that the blood from Venom produces his son inside of Kasady who is referred to as Carnage.
That one scene is the focal point of the film and the last one that isn’t filled with action from CGI which director Serkis has along with motion-capture technology experience. Serkis takes it no further than battles between cops and the two other world characters inside the two male leads. The aliens interacting with the humans battle constantly to the extent that there is very little to the story line.
Following many battles in which each character attempts to take control one quickly comes to its end, and we are left with a short preview of what might be the future.
If there are more Venom films the script needs to take a more interesting direction and not just CGI characters fighting with their entangled tentacles to gain superiority.
