Stan Lee was in it
The film studios last year released more 3d blu rays than the year before. This year the film companies are phasing out the 3d format with the UK first.
Fine we know that the 3d format fell flat on its face because of timing ie the crash, glasses, badly converted 3d etc...... but why release in Bangladesh, Mororavia etc...? This led to some sellers taking advantage the situation with one going for £68 I saw.
What happened to Customer choice? They already have an excess of £5 on top
Having said that the story which they have written here is a decent enough spin on things. Eddie Brock is now an online blogging sensation, bringing his viewers the truth behind the headlines. His no nonsense style of reporting is ultimately his career/lifes undoing. Venom is still a symbiote from outer space, brought to earth in the hope that these newly discovered life forms may be the key to medicinal miracles such as mending bones instantaneously or cancer, by bonding patients with the symbiotes. Thus a (un)happy accident ensues, where said blogger, who happens to be unearthing grisly secrets within the labs containing symbiotes, crosses paths with said symbiote.
Tom Hardy's performance is honestly the main reason I'd recommend anybody sit through this film. He nails it, and clearly has fun doing it. As for the big brute himself, the CGI is as good as it probably could've been and his voice is spot-on. They really got the character of Venom so perfect. It's just a shame it couldn't have been in the proper context, with the aforementioned Parker/Spider-Man rivalry from the books. Also, because of Spidey's absence, Venom has no large white spider emblazoned on his torso. Though this may be me being a nitpicking fanboy.
The same cannot be said for the rest of the cast. Most of it's passable, but the main villain himself, to me personally, was bollocks. I can't really even explain why, I just did not buy it. Whether it's the fault of the actor or shoddy writing, I could not comment. The whole pace of the film - especially towards the end as the villain gets more of a front seat - feels rushed.
All in all, Venom mostly does what it says on the tin. It's good fun. That's really all. If you're not too fussed about the character or aren't sure about this one, I'd recommend renting rather than buying. I bought the Blu-Ray and I don't suppose it'll be in the disc slot again anytime soon.
The clarity of image is there, the CGI is good, but the darkness of the image made me actually put the Blu-Ray disk into another player and try it to see if my projector had gone wrong.
As for the film, Spiderman it is not, but it is definitely a really good watch in my opinion and my 3 children all rated it as 5 stars. Just save yourself some money, avoid the 4k version
