I saw it this afternoon and I thought it was brilliant.
As Henry Cavill once said, the critics aren't the ones buying the tickets.
The CGI was a bit naff but it wasn't off putting and I'm glad they changed to pronunciation of symbiote as to how they said it in the trailer.
I recommend you go see it.
While I've not seen Venom myself, my son, his fiance and his friend saw the film last Saturday. Both my son and his fiance liked the film, my son even said he would give it 98 out of 100, while his friend said that he preferred the Justice League.
From the follow ups I've seen and read, Venom made bank, i.e. word-wide takings of over $205,000,000. Seems like the cinema going public, including some fans, liked the films, despite the fact that most critics slammed it.
Just goes to show, you can't put your faith in what the critics say.
That's really interesting, I've not spoken to anyone who doesn't like it then.
@ukbobboy I did read that it broke October weekend records with $80m, but that might have been before critics had their say.
Love the quote @caseyb1993 and it's absolutely the truth, I might just go see it then.
@Karl-F The next film on my list is definitely Bohemian Rhapsody! 💖
That looks fantastic!
