Goofs

(at around 2 mins) 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 »

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.
