Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Venom's first standalone movie turns out to be like the comics character in all the wrong ways - chaotic, noisy, and in desperate need of a stronger attachment to Spider-Man.

Common Sense Says
Violent, uninspired comic-book tale misses the mark.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Venom is a violent, disappointing comic-book action movie starring Tom Hardy that's based on a villain from the Spider-Man universe, though Spidey isn't mentioned here. The violence, while mostly bloodless, is frequent and intense, with fighting, hitting, punching, and bashing, guns and shooting, stabbing and slicing, car chases, explosions, etc. Some characters die on-screen, and many die offscreen. Plus, there are jump scares, and Venom himself (itself?) is pretty scary to look at, with his giant fangs, and there's no real consequence for his brutality. Language includes several uses of "s--t" and "bulls--t," a use of "f--k," a use of "p---y," and more. A couple kiss frequently, and sex is suggested. The main character drinks whiskey in a bar and beer at home. Unfortunately, it's an uninspired mess, though perhaps some teens will enjoy the effects, sci-fi imagery, and Hardy's performance.
