Movie Title: Venom

Year of Release: 2018

Directed by: Ruben Fleischer

Starring: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed

Movie Summary:

When Eddie Brock acquires the powers of a symbiote, he will have to release his alter-ego "Venom" to save his life.

The Bent*Spud 2 Cents:

This origin story about a less than sympathetic anti-hero is a welcome addition to the ever-expanding superhero movie canon. It started off a bit slow, but when it picked up the pace, the train was an unstoppable thrill ride with lots of witty banter and comedic moments. Tom Hardy as the titular character turns in a fantastic performance; his sheer onscreen charisma certainly added to the movie's overall appeal. Michelle Williams also shines as the love interest, Anne Weying. While it was all too easy to phone in a performance as a supporting character in a movie like this, she really sank her teeth in the role and gave her 100% in the portrayal of a character that we have never seen her do before.
