Sony Pictures has rolled out a new TV spot for Venom that highlights some of the positive reviews about the film penned down by critics. Venom has released to mixed reactions, currently sitting at a 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, though this, of course, could change as more reviews come in.
The TV spot showcases reviews coming from a number of publications. Venom is “one of the most original comic book movies,” wrote ABC TV’s Mark S Allen.
“Tom Hardy is phenomenal,” wrote JoBlo.com’s Jimmy Oster.
“Two tounges up,” wrote SYFY’s Jordan Zakarin. You can check out the TV spot below.
The review coming from UPROXX’s Mike Ryan is also pretty positive. Ryan has noted that he had the time of his life watching the film.
“Now, I do want to make it clear that I think ‘Venom’ is not a good movie, but I also want to make it clear that I had the time of my life watching it. I think in a couple of years ‘Venom’ could be the type of movie that sells out midnight showings as people come up to the screen and act out their favorite parts – like a ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ type of thing. My point is, if you’re in the right group and right frame of mind, ‘Venom’ is really fun to watch.”
While some really enjoyed watching the film, some others felt that the overall film is a nonsensical mess.
According to ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis, the film “doesn’t know if it wants to be gritty, funny, tough, or something else entirely. When a random feeling bout of hip hop music takes over the theater’s speakers early on, it feels as though Venom is trying to identify as something else which has worked for other movies, but suffers from never committing to a certain tone.”
Now, it remains to be seen what the audience score will be since the ultimate judge is the people who spend money on tickets to watch the film. The film’s success or failure could also decide if there will be a sequel in the future.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom is now playing in theaters.
