  • There are some unexpected moments like Venom kidnapping MJ, Peter getting stabbed by Harry, Venom grabbing Spider-Man by his neck etc which can be a bit startling for some viewers.
  • The Church sequence in which Eddie opens the door and looks towards the loud ringing bell has an intense tone, but within the PG13 standards; it's nothing which young audiences can't handle.
  • Much darker than the previous two films.
  • During the crane scene, several people on the street are killed by falling debris, including a young woman who gets hit in the chest by a steelbeam and dies with a terrified high-pitched scream.
