Goofs

The symbiotes at the lab are shown to reject and kill most hosts, yet Venom and Riot change hosts repeatedly throughout the film whenever they want or need to with no ill effects. Dr. Skirth explains that hosts must be compatible to survive, but the nature of this compatibility is never explained, so it can be intricate enough to explain all the host-symbiot interactions in the movie. Also, it appears that symbiotes can sense compatibility from afar, so they choose the hosts they need (the symbiotes in the lab aren't given a choice). It is also possible that Dr. Skirth was wrong and symbiotes can assimilate or kill a host at will. Indeed, Venom was killing Eddie at first simply because he was hungry. It is also possible that symbiotes learn from experience and become better at assimilation. Indeed, it seems that as time goes on more and more hosts survive in the lab experiments. See more »

Do yourself a favour...ignore the critics!
3 October 2018 | by ufareseSee all my reviews

We just came out of the theatre and I can honestly say. I liked it! It was funny and it paid great homage to the Todd McFarlane bombastic Venom era of the late 90's. It truly baffles me that Sony would not take enough risks to release the film with an R rating. I wonder how much of this film was left on the cutting floor!?! Tom Hardy's performance is also on point and...just go see it.
