Some assume that the crash site is in Cebu, which is in the Philippines, not Malaysia. However, it's not Cebu, but Sibu, which is indeed in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. The map on the computer in the control center shows the states of Sabah and Sarawak, in east Malaysia. The medical technician actually speaks Malay. See more »

This film would have been much better if it wasn't for the bad writing.
29 November 2018 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

You would think one of the 5 (why?) writers could have gotten this right. Tom Hardy was amazing, the directing excellent, cinematography on point, V/SFX not bad, but the story was very loose and had plot and pacing issues. Venom's voice was also annoying. You would think the producers would have hired better writers instead of pathetically paying for almost every review on here 9 and above being fake (pretty much only film reviewed). I may have given this film a 7 or 8 out of 10, but only gets a 6 for the fake reviews. For me it could have been much better and deserving of the 9's and 10's had the writing been tighter. Nevertheless, still enjoyable, but sadly only a 6/10 from me, mainly for the fake reviews that piss me off.
